Personal Injury

A personal injury is any injury or illness caused by someone else’s negligence. Legally, you are entitled to compensation when this happens to you.

Personal Injury

If you’ve been injured in the last 3 years and it was somebody else’s fault, it’s our job to see you’re compensated for your injuries and losses. That could mean anything from a minor whiplash injury to life-threatening permanent injuries that require home modification and/or losses amounting from a few weeks’ salary to a complete change of lifestyle.

When you make a personal injury claim, your solicitor could also help you get the treatment you may need – from physiotherapy to dental work, counselling to surgery. Making a personal injury claim is about ensuring you have the resources you need to help you get better.

We’re here to fight your case and get you the maximum compensation possible.

Road Traffic Accident Claims

When your injury is through a vehicle accident that was not your fault, whether you’re a driver, a cyclist, a motorcyclist or a pedestrian, we will start putting the wheels in motion to making the claim and putting you back on the road. Hopefully, as is the case in the majority of claims, the at-fault driver’s vehicle will be insured, so we will be working on your behalf to get a settlement from their insurance company, whether that’s another driver, your employer or a medical professional.

The types of road traffic accident claims we can assist you with are:

  • Car Accident Claims
  • Whiplash Claims
  • Motorbike Claims
  • Public Transport Claims
  • Pedestrian/Cyclist Claims
  • Serious injury Claims
  • Fatal accidents

When the driver is uninsured or untraced, it can be more complicated, but not impossible, to make a claim. We usually have to obtain information from police, witnesses and CCTV. Sometimes the motorist will need to be tracked down, but in any event you may still be able to claim, as the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB) covers accidents like these.

Finally, winning compensation from an individual rather than an insurer can be more difficult, as insurers have much deeper pockets, but there are legal ways to settle such cases to the satisfaction of the injured party.

We work proactively in your best interest on a No Win, No Fee Basis which means exactly what it says on the tin: you don’t pay anything if you lose. However, if you win, we take 25% of any compensation we recover for you.

Only in extreme circumstances will you be liable to pay any cost if you lose, such as if there was a finding of fraud or “Fundamental Dishonesty”.

No win, no fee. Our team are on hand, ready to help.​

Accidents at work

If you’ve been injured in an accident at work that wasn’t your fault in the last three years, you could be able to make a claim for compensation.

Workplaces should be safe environments, where you can carry out your duties without fear of being hurt. But accidents happen and if you’ve been injured through your employer’s negligence, you could make a claim for compensation.

Unfortunately, many employers don’t prioritise employee safety. There are countless ways your employer could put you in danger at work, including:

  • Not carrying out appropriate risk assessments
  • Not providing sufficient personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Not maintaining equipment and machinery efficiently
  • Not ensuring the workplace is free of hazards, such as liquid spills
  • Not enforcing health and safety regulations
  • Not training employees appropriately
  • Not addressing colleagues’ negligence
  • Not ensuring vehicles are carrying an appropriate load

If your employer has not fulfilled their duty to provide a safe workplace, you could make a personal injury claim for compensation to help your recovery.

As with road traffic accidents, workplace accidents should always be covered by the employer’s insurance. The issue here is that employers will often use their position to fight against your claim, typically suggesting that you were not following agreed safety procedures. It can be particularly onerous if you are still working for the employer.

The types of work accident claim we can assist you with are:

  • Factory Accident Claims
  • Office Accident Claims
  • Construction Site Accident Claims
  • Forklift Truck Accident Claims
  • Noise Induced Hearing Loss Claims
  • Repetitive Strain Injuries.

As your solicitor, we will pursue your case to ensure you get the compensation you deserve when you are hurt at work. Where there is shared liability, we’ll ensure you get a package that reflects the part the company played in your injury, notwithstanding any responsibility you had in the incident.

As your solicitors we will act for you on a No Win, No Fee basis. Everyone is entitled to justice when they are wronged – but not everyone can afford to pursue it. This is why No Win, No Fee claims were introduced. They allow everyone the opportunity to take legal action when they’re injured due to someone else’s negligence.

Making a claim on a No Win, No Fee basis means there is nothing to pay upfront. You can focus on your recovery rather than worrying about the cost of a claim. It also means that if your claim is not successful, you won’t have to pay your solicitor’s fee. There is no financial risk involved in a No Win, No Fee workplace injury claim.

If your claim is successful, your solicitor will take a success fee. This could be up to 25% of your final compensation amount – but it won’t be more. Your work accident lawyer will explain all fees before you go ahead with the claim so there won’t be any surprise costs down the line.

Ask us about our No Win, No Fee claims arrangements if you want legal representation without the risk. Our highly specialised and dedicated team are always ready to discuss potential cases. It’s our guarantee that we will pursue your case as far as we possibly can.
