Carol Hopwood, Head of the Serious and Catastrophic Injury

Carol qualified as a Solicitor in 1993 since when she has specialised in personal injury litigation.  She is a Headway UK approved panel solicitor, founding trustee and secretary of Headway Sefton and UKABIF member.  Having sold her own practice in 2013, she headed the Liverpool Catastrophic injury team for another national practice before joining Carpenters to become Head of the Serious and Catastrophic Injury Team. 

As well as being responsible for the management and performance of the team Carol sits on the Operations Board and retains a caseload acting for some of our most catastrophically injured clients. She is an expert on brain and spinal injuries, amputation injuries and fatal accidents and last year secured over £25million for injured clients. With a focus on rehabilitation and working with her clients to help them reach their maximum potential, she is passionate about obtaining the best possible outcome for Carpenters clients. Carpenters support Carol in her role with Headway Sefton. In her spare time, she fundraises for Headway Sefton and The Motor Neurone Disease Association. Carol is listed in The Legal 500 2019 and described as ‘a very experienced lawyer who has a charm and a light touch when trying to get the best outcome for her clients. Clients really warm to her and trust her judgement’.
