Alex HughesLegal Assistant
Legal Assistant working in a variety of aspects relating to Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence claims.
I assist with a variety of personal injury and clinical negligence claims, with the ultimate goal of securing fair compensation to help people continue with their lives. Injuries range from modest to life-changing, meaning I work with a broad scale of compensation values. I support clients who have suffered an injury through no or limited fault of their own. As well as securing compensation, I also help clients to ensure they have access to the appropriate level of care, therapies and rehabilitation. Additionally, I have sole, day-to-day conduct of a variety of low to medium-value claims, including modest-value, clinical negligence cases, road traffic accidents, accidents at work, and public liability claims.
I have been working at Anthony Collins since 2014. Over this time I have developed a passion for ensuring individual clients have access to justice and have a voice. My main area of focus is in injury litigation where I represent some of the most vulnerable persons in society.
On 23 July, trainees from Anthony Collins Solicitors will host an ‘experience day’, which will involve various activities and presentations, with lawyers and non-lawyers from across the firm.
