Throughout her career, Debra Woolfson has been helping clients and their families through the compensation claims process, so they can maximise their rehabilitation and restore quality of life following traumatic injury.
She has a Master’s degree in healthcare ethics alongside her law degree and other professional qualifications.
Woolfson has more than 20 years’ experience dealing with all kinds of claims and injuries that have resulted from the failure of others to take adequate care to ensure people’s safety.
She is proud of the pro-bono work she’s done for the limbless community and of her work with charities, informing and assisting those who support individuals needing help to deal with the trauma of bereavement and disability.
Woolfson represents clients at inquests, CICA tribunals and court hearings and is keen to ensure that each client, whatever the size of his or her claim, gets the rehabilitation, care and expert advice needed. She does everything possible to make the claims process as effective and stress free as possible.
She is also an expert in claims against professionals who have not represented their clients properly in personal injury proceedings.
Woolfson is head of Access Legal from the Shoosmiths personal injury team in Manchester.
