Personal Injury Solicitors
Support every step of the way…
Suffering a personal injury that wasn’t your fault can have significant consequences. Apart from the pain you will have suffered, the injury may also mean a loss of income while you recover, travel costs to receive treatment and other associated expenses.
Personal injury claims can vary in their severity, from an accident that knocks you off your feet for a while to life-changing injuries, industrial diseases and even death. Of course, not every injury is physical, the psychological impact of an accident or injury can be just as significant, impacting every aspect of the victim’s life.
With any injury, getting back to your lifestyle as soon as possible is the main priority. Receiving appropriate compensation can help with this, whether the funds are used to adapt your home, pay off debts or cover costs while you recover, having the financial resources to move on with your life can make a huge difference to your recovery.
While not exhaustive, personal injury claims may include:
- A slip, trip or fall
- A workplace or industrial injury
- Industrial disease
- A road traffic accident
- Medical negligence
Before taking on a case, we take the time to properly understand your situation. From there we can make an informed decision as to whether we can pursue your claim on a no win no fee basis.
Successfully handling a personal injury claim requires the right legal expertise, and with five senior solicitors within the team, supported by experienced paralegals, you can be sure your claim is in safe hands.
