What we do

We can offer “no win no fee” agreements and can assist you with all types of accident or injury compensation claims including:

Dental and Medical negligence compensation claims

If you have had an injury – or an existing condition has been made worse as a result of poor medical treatment – you may have a medical negligence claim and be entitled to compensation.

A medical negligence claim (often called a clinical negligence claim) arises where those treating you have failed in their duty of care and this has caused injury or has worsened an existing medical condition.

Such a claim can include failure to diagnose a medical condition at all, delay in diagnosis or appropriate treatment, an error in surgery or medical procedure or prescribing the wrong drugs or treatment.  

Road traffic accidents

A potential injury claim can be made for compensation for road traffic accidents. This includes accidents involving cars, buses, motorbikes and cyclists.

A claim can be made whether you were the driver or a passenger at the time of the accident.  

If you were a pedestrian at the time of the accident then you can also claim for compensation.

Accidents or other injuries at work

Your employer has a legal duty to ensure you are safe at work as far as possible. If your employer has failed to do so, then you may have a claim for compensation.

The most common types of accidents at work include trips and falls, manual handling, muscle strains, lifting injuries and injuries from heavy machinery and power tools.

Occupiers Liability (Slips/trips in a public place)

If you have suffered an injury while on another individual’s land or property, you may be entitled to make an occupiers liability claim.

An owner or occupier of land has a duty to take reasonable steps to ensure their property is safe to visitors and also trespassers.

This means that if you suffer an injury as a result of an accident on someone else’s property such as in a shop, on a foot path or in a public place then you may have a claim for compensation.

This covers a very wide variety of cases and therefore it is important to contact us to discuss whether you have a claim.

Fatal Accidents

When somebody dies as a result of an accident caused by another person then family members or a person dependent upon that person may be able to make a claim for compensation.

This is the case whether the death has occurred as a result of a road traffic accident, accident at work, medical negligence or any other event which is somebody else’s fault.

We have solicitors who specialise in fatal accident claims. We understand that when a fatal accident occurs it is always a catastrophic event for those left behind. We understand that whilst no amount of compensation can adequately compensate a family for the loss of a loved one, a claim for compensation can provide immediate financial support and long term financial security.

A claim in these circumstances can include financial compensation for dependents of the deceased including future loss of earnings and loss of services (e.g. childcare, DIY and housework).

The procedure for a fatal accident claim can be complex and it is vital that you seek advice from an experienced senior solicitor as soon as possible.

We can also advise you on and arrange representation for you at any inquest in the Coroners’ Court.

Catastrophic Injuries

Our specialist solicitors have experience in advising on catastrophic injury claims including those resulting in brain damage and fatal accident claims frequently attracting damages of very high value.

We appreciate that injuries of this severity will have lifelong implications. We are specialists in the management of complex and high value injury claims. These involve advising upon and negotiating claims for ongoing care and rehabilitation, past and future loss of earnings, case management, and significant use of expert evidence as well as complicated settlement and financial structures including periodical payment orders.

We also advise upon the need for and involvement of the Court of Protection as well as the use of Personal Injury Trusts.

Time Limits

The usual time limit for a personal injury claim is 3 years from the date of the accident or date your illness was diagnosed. However there are a number of exceptions to this rule. Time limits are strict and we would recommend you contact our team of personal injury solicitors as soon as possible.

We can then advise you as to which time limit will apply to your specific claim.

What is a no win no fee agreement?

A no win no fee agreement is an agreement between you and us that we take on your claim on the basis that if you do not obtain compensation then you do not have to pay us a penny for the time we have spent investigating and pursuing your claim.

Why is a no win no fee agreement good for you?

We understand that the risk of being left with a bill if your personal injury or accident claim does not proceed is a worry.  A no win no fee agreement takes away that risk for you. If we do not obtain compensation for you – we charge you NOTHING for the time we have spent advising you, investigating and pursuing your personal injury claim.

What you need to know

The big worry for clients is always whether they will have to pay legal fees if the claim is unsuccessful. Under the terms of our no win no fee agreement we can guarantee that you will not receive a bill from our team if your personal injury or accident claim is unsuccessful. This means that you can pursue a claim knowing that we have put all the necessary protection in place to give you complete peace of mind.

What will you have to pay?

Our promise to you:

  • You pay nothing to us for the service of our specialist personal injury lawyers if you are not successful in your claim.
  • If you lose then our legal costs are written off and the policy of insurance will cover any expenses incurred.
  • If your claim is successful, you will only need to pay a small fraction of the damages you have been awarded.
  • This means that you will always keep the lion’s share of the damages and you have the peace of mind of knowing that if the claim is not successful you pay us nothing.
