The law requires employers and owners or occupiers of premises to take reasonable steps to ensure people’s safety. Not doing it can mean they’re legally liable for any accident or injury that occurs. Should you suffer an injury or illness due to someone else’s negligence, we can help you seek the justice you deserve.
From broken bones to other serious injuries, we know how a personal injury can disrupt your life and have an impact on you, your family and sometimes your future. Claiming compensation can set you on the right path to get your life back on track, so you can receive medical care and rehabilitation and make up for any lost earnings and expenses that you’ve incurred because of your injury.
Our expert personal injury lawyers have successfully helped hundreds of people claim for personal injury compensation. Get in touch for a free, no obligation consultation to find out if we can work with you to get the money you may be entitled to. Or fill out our claim form and we’ll ring you back.

When we take on any case, we want you to feel reassured and confident in every aspect of your claim. That’s why we offer a service that puts your needs over and above anything else.
We promise to:
A personal injury could be a physical or psychological injury caused by someone else. If your injury was not your fault and was caused by the negligence of others, then you may be entitled to compensation. Even if the injury isn’t somebody’s direct responsibility, it’s possible to make a claim if there has been negligence, either on the part of an individual or a company.
Common personal injury claim types include:
“We have to accept that we cannot and never will be able to prevent injuries happening in sports such as gymnastics, especially involving young children who may not show the same levels of caution and understanding of danger as adults.”
“However, there are many basic measures which can and must be taken to reduce risk of injury by sports clubs, and a failure to do so is not acceptable.”
The amount of personal injury compensation you’re entitled to will depend on your individual circumstances and will consider the seriousness of your injuries, the impact the accident has had on your life, and the expenses you’ve paid, or will need to pay, as a result of the incident.
If you have a successful personal injury claim, the compensation will consider several factors:
From relatively minor injuries, such as whiplash claims, to seven-figure compensation amounts for serious accidents, our expert personal injury lawyers have secured settlements for thousands of victims.
Below are a small number of examples of those we have been able to help to gain personal injury compensation and rehabilitation. They include:
We operate on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, so whatever the outcome there are no upfront costs for making a personal injury claim for compensation.
In some cases, you may already have legal expenses insurance to cover any costs. This type of insurance is commonly purchased with car or household insurance.
If your personal injury claim is unsuccessful, there will be absolutely no cost to you, provided you have given us honest and accurate instructions and fully cooperated with us with your claim.
If you are successful, we will limit the amount deducted from your compensation which will be agreed at the onset of the claim, so you’re completely aware of our fees from the beginning.
Either the victim of the accident or someone acting on their behalf can make a personal injury claim. If you or someone you know has suffered in any way, through no fault of their own, get in touch with our expert personal injury solicitors.
We’ll do all we can to take the worry and hassle out of making an accident claim and help you get the compensation you and your family deserve. All claims have a time limit, so get in touch today and we’ll guide you every step of the way.
Contact a member of our friendly team for a free, no obligation personal injury consultation or fill out a claim form. They will have an initial chat with you about your injuries and the circumstances surrounding the accident.
We’ll go through the details with you and advise the steps you need to take to if we think you have a claim. If we take your case, your lawyer will take the lead on everything and guide you through the process – no need to worry about anything.
To ensure the solicitor can put your case forward effectively, there will be some information that you must provide. This will vary depending on your circumstances, but generally, they will need to know:
Once you have discussed your case and collected all the relevant evidence, your solicitor will formally notify the person or company that is being held responsible for your injury.
The responsible party will then need to respond. If they accept liability (fault), we will also gather evidence from third parties, such as witnesses and independent medical professionals, to help us evaluate the amount of compensation you’re owed.
Your settlement will then be negotiated with the responsible party. In circumstances whereby agreement cannot be reached, court proceedings may be considered.
Once you start a claim, your solicitor will be on hand to guide you through the whole process, from start to finish.
You have three years from the date of the injury, or from the date you learned your injury was potentially caused by another party’s negligence. However, if you were under 18 years of age at the time, you have three years from your 18th birthday.
An exception to the rule is where the claimant is a ‘protected party’. This is a person who lacks the mental capacity to make certain decisions for themselves. Where the capacity never returns, there is no time limit for bringing a claim. However, if at some point the claimant regains capacity, there will be a time limit of three years from that date.
Yes, you can. If you, a friend or family member are unhappy with your current solicitor then yes, you or they are entitled to switch to a different solicitor.
We receive calls, on a daily basis, from clients who have an on-going personal injury claim but are unhappy with how their claim is progressing.
Transferring your claim to us is a simple process.
Please do contact us to discuss your case on a no obligation basis. Should you decide that you want us to take over your claim we’ll request your file from your existing injury solicitor. We will assess your file and begin the process of taking it over to resolve your claim as quickly as possible.
Our expert personal injury solicitors handle and lead very experienced teams in skilfully dealing with all road traffic, workplace, and holiday accidents.
We see all too often how injuries – both minor and serious – can have a massive impact on an individual’s life, and on those around them. It is therefore paramount that everything is put in place to best aid recovery and help cope with the challenges being injured brings.
We will assess your immediate needs and arrange appointments, for example physiotherapy, if necessary.
To help evaluate the amount your claim is worth, and what will be required to support you throughout your recovery, the personal injury team will:
