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.
