Mike Molloy (Partner, Manchester)
Mike qualified as a Solicitor in 1993 and joined Horwich Cohen Coghlan in 2001. Mike has specialised in personal injury litigation since qualification, and over the last 20 years the years has developed a particular expertise in high value and complex claims. He is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and now deals with claims involving catastrophic and life-changing injuries, including injuries to the brain, spine and multiple muscular-skeletal trauma. He has enormous experience of the complexities of serious and catastrophic injury cases, and has also developed an extensive network of leading experts and barristers. In addition to his technical legal knowledge, Mike understands the wider challenges and problems that life changing injuries pose for for both the injured party and their immediate family, and he is dedicated to supporting them as best he can from the earliest possible stage.
Mike regularly attends clients in their homes, and makes himself available for communication with clients and their families at all times.
Mike has an in-depth knowledge of the Rehabilitation Code which (as revised in 2015), and seeks to maximise the benefits it can provide for clients with serious injuries. This will include working intensively at an early stage to deliver the necessary treatment and rehabilitation to clients following discharge from hospital.
Although he places a particular focus on delivery of treatment, Mike also ensures that the damages awarded are maximised. He regularly secures awards in excess of £1 million for clients, and recently negotiated an award of £5.9 million for a client.
What Mike’s clients say:
I was recommended to HCC by a family friend in the legal field. I lost confidence in solicitors I previously instructed to deal with my claim and transferred to HCC. I’m so pleased I did. Mike Molloy was brilliant. I felt very well looked after. I found hospital correspondence particularly anxiety-provoking but Mike always dealt with any concerns or queries I had promptly and efficiently, even providing me with responses during weekends. His friendly and straight-to-the-point nature made things very easy to understand – he didn’t use all that legal jargon. I felt that I was in very good hands and I could not have asked for more. Thank you Mike, you made the whole process easier – I couldn’t have asked for more.
I had no hesitation in using Mike Molloy because he dealt with a smaller legal matter for me some time ago and I would not have wanted to choose anyone else. From the word go, I was impressed that Mike kept me updated with everything. I never needed to chase him for anything and I received all my documents by email and post, which I found really useful. I was always anxious when I had to talk about any aspect of the claim, as the whole thing has upset me. When I needed to contact him, Mike always put me at ease straight away. I am so grateful to him.
The accident was life-changing for me. I am a qualified radiographer and had taken a part-time local position as a physiotherapy assistant to keep me active. I had just relocated from the London area to the North-West. I knew when I slipped that I had fractured and badly damaged my ankle. When the plaster cast was removed, I knew that this was not going to be the end of it.
Mike was fantastic. I can’t thank him enough and I would thoroughly recommend HCC, without a doubt, 100%. I am very happy with the outcome.
