Coodes Litigation Executive achieves double accreditation for personal injury expertise

Mon 8th May 2017

A Litigation Executive from Coodes Solicitors has been given two accreditations by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), the leading national organisation for personal injury law. Catherine Hyde has been awarded APIL’s quality mark for her expertise in seeking justice for people who have been injured in an accident that was not their fault.

Catherine has received two accreditations from APIL, achieving recognition both as a litigator and a portal claims handler. This reflects her experience of advising clients on large and small claims. Being accredited by APIL demonstrates Catherine’s commitment to acting in the best interest of clients, and her breadth of experience.

Catherine is Cornwall’s only Litigation Executive to receive both the Portal Claims Handler and Litigator accreditations from APIL. To achieve the accreditations, she had to submit a detailed portfolio showcasing her five years’ experience of handling a wide range of personal injury claims for clients.

Catherine Hyde said: “I am very pleased to have been recognised by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. Achieving this recognition means a lot because it is based on the quality of my work and the breadth of my experience. I am especially proud to be the only Cornwall-based Litigation Executive to have been recognised in this way. I hope my accreditations help Coodes to continue to grow its reputation as being one of the region’s leading law firm for personal injury and clinical negligence claims.”

Based in Coodes’ Falmouth office, Catherine is part of the firm’s growing Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team. The team works across the South West law firm’s network of offices in Cornwall and Devon, supporting people who have been injured through accidents or clinical negligence.

Partner and Head of Coodes Solicitors Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence team Tim Goldburn said: “Congratulations to Catherine. This is an excellent achievement and testament to her commitment to the profession. We are delighted to have Cornwall’s only APIL accredited Portal Claims Handler and Litigator on our team.”
