Grenfell Tower & Chalcots Estate


Hodge Jones & Allen has represented people affected by disasters in the UK over the last 40 years.

We are proud that we have been able to help people whose lives have been devastated by avoidable disasters.

We know how to use the power of the law. We have helped many hundreds of people affected by:

  • The Kings Cross Fire 1987
  • The Marchioness Disaster 1989
  • Kerrin Point 1997
  • New Cross Fire (2nd Inquest) 2004

Many lives were lost and injuries suffered in the Kings Cross Fire, the sinking of the Marchioness, in the New Cross Fire and at Hillsborough.

At Kerrin Point, Lambeth, all the residents lost their homes after a huge gas explosion in the boiler house.

In the Kings Cross Fire, the Marchioness and in the New Cross Fire cases we worked hard to help our clients get to the truth of what happened and who was to blame.

Significant compensation was gained for HJA clients in the Kings Cross Fire, Marchioness and Kerrin Point cases.

If you have suffered a personal injury, bereavement or loss of your home we can help you. Our teams will:

  • help with your immediate needs for housing, support and benefits
  • hold the defendants to account
  • seek funds and emergency measures from central and local government and your landlords
  • provide legal representation at any inquiry or inquest
  • look for long term solutions for you, your neighbours and your community
  • obtain the financial compensation to which you are entitled.

Let us take up your fight, make important challenges on your behalf, find the right support you need, gain answers and the care required to make a difference for you and your family.
