About Major Trauma Group member firm HCC Solicitors

The logo of HCC Solicitors

Horwich Cohen Coghlan Solicitors (HCC Solicitors) are an award winning specialist serious injury law firm based in the centre of Manchester.  

For over 25 years the Partners at HCC have worked to build a law firm that delivers outstanding service to seriously injured clients, and over the last decade in particular they have been at the forefront of pioneering a new “rehab first” approach to dealing with these cases. 

The quality of their service has been recognised by a number of recent awards, including;

  • Manchester Legal Awards 2020 – Law Firm (medium size) of the Year
  • Personal Injury Wards (National) 2020 – Claimant Team of the Year
  • British Claims Awards (National) 2020 – Law Firm of the Year

In 2016 HCC were chosen to be part of an elite legal panel providing legal support and services to patients treated under the Major Trauma Pathway at Manchester NHS Foundation Trust, and they have maintained a position on this panel ever since.

HCC offer a bespoke “Major Trauma Service” designed to work alongside the NHS pathway, and from an early stage they look to focus on the rehabilitation needs of each client.  They believe that seriously injured clients will always want to achieve the best possible recovery, as quickly as possible – and the approach they take in the early stages of a serious injury case is predicated on that basis. 

HCC won’t try to replace effective NHS services with private services just for the sake of it – but where there are delays or gaps in the service and treatments that the NHS can provide, then they try to fill these gaps with private treatments funded by an insurer or other compensator.  In practice the aim is to overlay private treatments on top of effective NHS provision, in an effort to cover all the necessary aspects of the required rehabilitation package.

HCC are proud to be a member firm of the Major Trauma Group, and would be delighted to help anyone who needs advice and support following serious injury.

As a member firm with Major Trauma Group, HCC Solicitors have the complex injury experience and local expertise to help with your personal injury compensation claim.

About Brian Coghlan

Brian is a Solicitor and Director of HCC Solicitors, and has specialised in personal injury cases for over 25 years.

He is the Director with responsibility for the Major Trauma and Serious Injury Department at HCC Solicitors, and over the last decade this team has been restructured to ensure that it provides the best possible legal service for clients.

Each case is handled by a senior lawyer, who is supported by a team of highly skilled paralegals, secretaries and admin staff. The team includes a hugely experienced Partner who carries no personal caseload, specifically so that they can provide support and oversight to the senior lawyers handling cases, as every experienced lawyer knows from experience that “two heads are better than one”.

Brian has worked with the other two Directors at HCC Solicitors for over 25 years, and they all share a passion for making sure that seriously injured clients are supported and represented with high levels of expertise, respect and professionalism.
