Caragh Hogan began her legal career nearly twenty years ago, securing compensation for former miners and their families from the National Coal Health Scheme. She now works at Thompsons’ Cardiff office and manages a range of personal injury claims for clients from a range of unions.

Her work covers accident claims, including accidents at work, road traffic accidents and assaults. She particularly specialises in assaults in the workplace by minors and vulnerable adults, and has acted for clients suffering from both orthopaedic and psychiatric injuries.

Caragh places great importance on working exclusively for the injured party as that allows her to specialise.

In her spare time, she volunteers for Marie Curie.


“Caragh Hogan was extremely friendly and supportive when dealing with my case and with any concerns that I had. Her support and professionalism over the last three years has been greatly appreciated,” – a UNISON member.

“After our very first telephone conversation l immediately felt confident, informed and more importantly know that l had finally arrived into safe hands. From the outset Caragh kept me informed explained everything fully and answered even my daftest of questions. I received all the necessary information, forms and documents that required signing and returning in a timely manner. If l left an enquiry on her voice mail or email it was responded to quickly and has always with the upmost professionalism. Thanks to Caragh’s expertise, professional competence and extreme kindness and support things started to happen. In August 2019 l had my much needed operation which was a total success and finally l am pain free. All thanks to Caragh chasing, arranging and sorting every last detail with my best interest at heart. Caragh took amazing care of me as a person and not just a client number. Her advice and guidance through this long process has not only been phenomenal but much more than l expected to receive. I have expressed my personal thanks to Caragh but would you please pass them on again. Thompsons have a very special team member in Caragh Hogan,” – a UNISON member.

“I cannot thank Thompsons, and especially Ms. Caragh Hogan, enough for all the kindness and support shown to me, and for the thoroughness and integrity with which this case was handled. Thank you so very, very much,” – a UNISON member.

"Thanks for all your hard work in fighting my case. I would be very happy to recommend you and Thompsons." - Caragh's former client
