Erin Woodward is an Accredited Specialist in personal injury law.
She spent 16 years at a well-established regional firm, practising in personal injury law including motor accident claims, workers’ compensation, and public liability. For the past few years, Erin has had a special interest in medical negligence claims and joined the team at CHL in 2019 to work exclusively in this area. She has experience in a variety of interesting cases, including catastrophic brain injury arising from birth complications, late cancer diagnosis, botched breast surgery and other surgical mishaps.
“I take great pride in the challenge of trying to make the legal process accessible by explaining the law and claims process in plain English. For many people it is daunting to even contact a solicitor, let alone proceed along the path of starting legal proceedings. I believe that a solicitor, especially one in the sensitive area of medical negligence, can and should be both compassionate and caring, and driven and resourceful.”
