Chris Wood has over 22 years experience as a solicitor specialising in personal injury claims.
He began his career at one of the original specialist personal injury firms in Manchester City Centre, dealing mainly with road traffic accidents and accidents at work.
A founding partner of Porter Wood Law, along with Craig Porter, he set up the firm in 2019 with the aim of providing a bespoke service to clients who have been injured in accidents at work, on the road or in a public place all over England and Wales.
Chris deals with all sorts of claims and prides himself on providing a professional but compassionate service, putting the needs of the injured person at the centre of what he does. He will be with the client from the taking of initial instructions all the way to trial, if necessary.
He regularly takes on claims which have been rejected by other firms, working hard to get the result for his client. If your claim isn’t straightforward, you’ll be glad to have Chris on your side.
