Philippa is a member of the Major Trauma and Serious Injury team at Horwich Cohen Coghlan Solicitors, and from an early stage in any Major Trauma case she and her colleagues work to identify and establish a client’s needs, and then take steps to ensure they get the treatment and rehabilitation they need.

Philippa makes sure that she is available for seriously injured clients and family members at all times, and where appropriate she will visit them at hospital and/or in their own home. She knows that seriously injured clients worry about the future for both them and their families, and does everything she can to give them peace of mind and ensure that their future needs are catered for.

Over nearly 20 years of working with injured clients, Philippa has developed relationships with leading barristers and a network of highly respected independent experts across the country, and their input is vital to ensuring delivery of outstanding service and the best possible advice.

Philippa cares passionately about her clients, and is committed to supporting them wherever possible in addition to providing expert technical legal advice.

What Philippa's clients say

With Philippa and her team managing my case at HCC I had absolutely no worries about anything. Everything was streamlined and they kept me up to date at every step of the way during my case. Philippa and her colleague Emily kept everything on track and I was happy with the payout I received. Philippa and HCC have done an amazing job and far beyond what I was expecting from a law firm. I recommend them to anyone else who has also been injured on their motorcycle in a road traffic collision. Thank you HCC!

Tom Bird

I would like to thank you for your everlasting patience, diligence, and kind understanding in dealing with all my woes and tribulations, you have been an absolute star and credit to your profession. I am relieved that we finally reached some sort of closure and I can finally put the traumatic events behind me and move on. I am looking forward to putting the money to good use and to help me in the future. I would also like to wish you and yours all the very best for the future. Thank you once again Philippa, I will recommend you to any prospective client who I think may benefit from your expertise in the future.

Mr Plant

After a serious RTC involving a family member we got HCC Solicitors to represent us.

From day one they have been excellent with us, everything has been provided from personal equipment to acquiring statements from professionals/experts in the necessary fields. Philippa Simpson was our contact and her staff were always available to help when needed. I would highly recommend.
