Making an Accident, Injury or Illness claim

An accident can turn your world upside down. Without warning and through no fault of your own you can suddenly be left injured and struggling to cope. Money worries, job security and child care are just some of the problems you can be unexpectedly confronted with. This can be particularly upsetting at a time when you are most vulnerable. It is therefore important to appoint an experienced and specialist firm of solicitors who can manage all these issues on your behalf while you concentrate on getting better.

How we can help you

When you appoint us to deal with your compensation claim you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your case is in safe hands. Our team of specialist personal injury lawyers have years of dedicated experience between them.

You can rely on us to take away the stresses and the strains of a legal action. We will press insurers for an admission of liability, calculate your losses, prepare witness statements and make sure that you have access to the best medical experts you need to prove your case. We will do everything we can to ensure you recover the compensation you deserve.

Our experience

We have dealt with many thousands of accident claims, recovering many millions of pounds in compensation along the way. This means that there aren’t many legal problems that we won’t have encountered many times before and found a solution to.

It takes a lot to surprise us and in particular the ‘bully boy’ tactics used by some insurance companies doesn’t phase us. Our job is to ensure that our client’s get the maximum compensation they’re entitled to and that is exactly what we promise to do.

Why we are different

We are a genuine, regulated firm of solicitors – unlike many of the unregulated claims companies that advertise.

We are big enough to provide a specialist service, but small enough to care. Unlike the mega-large ‘factory firms’ we look after our clients’ individual needs.

We work on a No Win – No Fee basis. Quite simply if we do not win the case, we won’t be paid a penny. Our clients therefore know that if they lose they won’t end up facing a huge bill. And it gives us an obvious incentive to us to make every effort to win the claim.

We will pay any expenses such as court or expert’s fees. It is not unusual for these fees to be hundreds, if not thousands of pounds.
