Mike Molloy is an experienced partner and leads the Major Trauma Serious Injury team at HCC Solicitors. Mike has been instrumental in setting the family-first tone for the scope of services offered to clients who have been catastrophically injured.

Mike has nurtured a growing team of lawyers and achieved major successes for clients – by pioneering a holistic ‘family first’ approach to working with victims, meeting them face-to-face every single time right from the outset and closely auditing their position and presenting their case to defendants powerfully and assertively to get impressive results.

By taking this proactive ‘family first’ approach, it means Mike can secure the appropriate level of care, equipment, financial requirements and lifestyle amendments that clients need to recover and even thrive – with their wider family needs considered – post-injury

Mike regularly represents clients and their families who have experienced the effects of a wide variety of serious, life-changing injuries and experiences – including spinal cord injury, brain injury, amputation, polytrauma and psychiatric trauma.

Pro bono and charity work is key to the way Mike inspires his team and he has ensured his department develops and maintains close relationships with key charities who support people who have experienced a life-changing injury or family fatality.

These initiatives have led to tangible benefits for charities who do excellent work in supporting claimants physically and emotionally at what can be a challenging, life-changing experience.

Mike also works closely alongside experienced former police officers/family liaison officers and provides training materials for Police Forces and other emergency services agencies for them to better understand the civil procedures following a catastrophic injury sustained by a member of the public.

Following a long career in the catastrophic claims sector, Mike has long standing relationships with many of the leading insurance companies in the UK which means he is a trusted lawyer and renowned across the industry for his ability to access rehabilitation and financial support for his clients very quickly, in a friendly and collaborative style.

All of the cases that Mike and his team receive are recommendations from existing clients, healthcare professionals or other professionals that come into contact with catastrophically injured people or bereaved families. Mike is also experienced at supporting families through the Inquest process and you can read a testimonial from a client who kindly took the time to describe his experience here.

Mike is a perfect example of a modern, 21st century catastrophic injury lawyer who provides a legal, practical and rehabilitation-focused service to claimants at a time when they need it most – using his empathy and personal skills to help people at a very difficult time.

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.

Amy Lynch

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.

Diane Woodall

Mike Molloy has always been on hand for me to answer questions and support me and respond in a very timely manner to any queries I had. I could tell from the moment I met him at my hospital bedside that he understood the situation and had years of experience in representing people like me who had been involved in a motorcycle Collison through no fault of our own. From that very first meeting he has reassured me all along the journey that a positive outcome will be achieved and he’s been proved absolutely correct.

Henry Morris

From minute one of meeting Mike we liked his approach. Everything he said he would do in that first meeting  – he did. He promised us that he’d see us through the Inquest and he had a firm belief in our position and he understood from the outset what really mattered to us as a family – and how we were going to get it.

We were particularly impressed with the way Mike carefully listened to us and he was equally as determined as we were to enable our son to have a voice. Mike was clear and straightforward with us from day one and I can’t speak highly enough of him.

Firdous was with us throughout our journey and the entire week at inquest, in a supportive and compassionate way that we will always be forever grateful and we will never forget her role, working alongside Mike.

We can 100 per cent recommend Mike Molloy and his team to any other families who find themselves needing professional legal representation during an Inquest into the death of a loved one.

Nigel Duxbury

I would like to thank the wonderful team at HCC who took on my case and looked after me following the death of my husband in a traffic collision. They kept me updated throughout and were very professional but also kind and empathetic.

They were always willing to answer any questions I had and explained everything in simple terms. They also allowed me to reply in my own time when I was feeling overwhelmed. I’m so glad I chose them, I really don’t think there is anyone better, they definitely do their utmost for their client - supporting and guiding in a calm, reassuring and experienced way.

Above all, they are very caring and approachable and put you at ease straightaway. I thank you so much for taking on my case and the successful outcome of it. Although this will never bring back my husband, it allows me to look at, and move on to the next phase in my life.

Thank you again for everything you have done for me.
