  • Overview

    Leading team of personal injury compensation lawyers

    If you’ve been injured and you think someone else was to blame,our specialist personal injury compensation lawyers can help you claim compensation. Contact one of our specialists for a free initial consultation to see if we can investigate your case with the financial security of a no win no fee agreement.

    Our expert personal injury compensation lawyers understand that compensation is only part of the story, and could help you access the right rehabilitation, medical care and support you and your family may need.

    Can you claim compensation?

    Experiencing a personal injury can leave you with both physical and psychological injuries. Making a claim can get you the compensation you deserve for the financial losses you may have suffered and the future treatment you need.

    • You may be entitled to personal injury compensation if someone else was to blame for your accident. This can be through deliberate intent, such as an injury caused by violent crime, or through negligence in ensuring your safety, as in an accident at work
    • The accident can happen anywhere, for example, it can be on the road, on a sports field or an accident in a public place such as a supermarket
    • You can make a compensation claim for physical or psychological damage or both
    • You can claim compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your injuries and the things you need as a result of your injury
    • You can also claim compensation for financial loss. For example, for loss of earnings
    • You can do this on a no win no fee basis so there is no risk attached
       

    How can our personal injury compensation lawyers help with your claim?

    We're here to help you every step of the way, working in a supportive, considered and clear way. We are dedicated to gaining the best possible outcome for you.

    At the outset we will tell you whether you have a claim for compensation and throughout the case we will clearly explain each step of the process.

    If your case is already underway and you are in any doubt about the advice you are being given, it is important (and common practise) to get a second opinion. The advice you follow now can have a big impact on your future.

    • You will always have an expert dealing with your case as our personal injury compensation lawyers are highly ranked by two of the most prestigious independent guides to the legal profession "Chambers and Partners" and 'The Legal 500'
