Mrs Jane Woodcock
Senior Legal Executive and Head of Personal Injury
Jane has been with the firm for over 18 years and has more than 30 years’ experience of personal injury work. She has represented hundreds of clients successfully.
Jane is renowned in the market as a highly-experienced personal injury practitioner. Jane has extensive expertise in handling complex, high-value claims relating to catastrophic and life-changing injuries and fatalities, with many cases centering around accidents which happen in the workplace.
Many of Jane’s cases involve amputated limbs, reconstructed limbs and claims involving extensive periods of rehabilitation.
Significant cases led by Jane include representing a German national who suffered catastrophic injuries whilst working in the UK.
He lost an arm and a leg in an explosion at an airport when inflating aircraft tyres and the case needed consideration of both English and German law. A High Court ruling was required for the case to be decided under English law (as opposed to German law), enabling Jane to secure a much better final financial settlement for her client, the claim eventually being concluded at 1.75m euros. The case was reported in All England Law reports and widely quoted in legal articles and was shortlisted as a finalist in the ‘Outstanding Case of the Year’ category at the Personal Injury Awards.
Jane also secured a six-figure damages settlement for a young man who suffered a head injury and bleed on the brain after a fall from a ladder at work, leaving him unable to walk. He faced a long road to recovery. An extensive package of vital counselling and rehabilitation helped him make a tremendous recovery, returning to work and going on to compete in many sports events and marathons.
