Do you believe you have been injured as a result of the negligence of another person or organisation? Have you been injured as a result of an accident that was not your fault? If so , you might be entitled to compensation.
We will be able to advise you on whether the other party is likely to be found responsible and therefore whether you have a reasonable case.
Generally speaking, you can claim for two things.
First, you can claim for your actual injuries, the pain and suffering that you have experienced, and how your injuries have affected different aspects of your life, such as your working life and social life. How your injuries might affect you in the future is also considered. In most cases we obtain specialist medical reports regarding your injuries.
Secondly, you can also claim for past and future financial losses and expenses. For example, loss of earnings and the cost of treatment.
On average it takes between 1-2 years for a case to settle. It will depend on whether a claim is disputed. We will give you an estimate as to how long we think a case will take at the start and update you throughout. We will always ensure that a claim is resolved as soon as possible.
If you have had an accident then the usual rule is that unless your claim has settled, court proceedings have to be commenced within three years of the date of the accident.
If the injured person was a child at the time of the accident then usually the child has three years from their 18th birthday to have commenced court proceedings.
The time limit is not always three years - for example if the accident happened at sea.
More complex rules apply to industrial disease cases.
If you think you might have a claim then the best thing to do is to call us straight away. Our specialist personal injury solicitors can advise you about the time limit that applies to your case.
A No Win No Fee agreement (or a Conditional Fee Agreement) is an agreement which protects you against having to pay legal fees if you lose your case. Regardless of how your case is funded we will always keep you informed of your costs all the way through your case and we will always answer any questions you may have about costs as the case progresses.
How much compensation you will get very much depends upon what injuries you have suffered from, how they have affected you and how they might affect you in the future.
Our specialist personal injury solicitors will ensure that you claim everything that you are entitled to claim.
We will give you advice about how claims are valued and how much your claim is worth.
We have accumulated an enormous amount of experience over the years and we will use this to your advantage in terms of getting as much compensation for you as possible.
If you are successful with your claim, we will deduct a success fee from your compensation. The amount of the success fee is case dependent. However we can guarantee that we will deduct no more than 25% of your compensation. Also, we never deduct our success fee from any future financial losses at the time of settlement, for example your future loss of earnings.
It is of course completely up to you if you decide you would like legal representation, although we would highly recommend it. As experts in our field we can get the best outcome for you. It is more than likely you will get more compensation if you use a solicitor as opposed to trying to represent yourself.
One of our dedicated team will deal with your claim from start to finish.
Very few cases end up in a court room.
If the Defendant admits liability then the overwhelming majority of cases settle without the need to go to court.
In the unlikely event that your case actually goes to court, our specialist personal injury solicitors will support you and explain what will happen.
Not everybody who is injured is capable of dealing with a compensation claim. In some cases you can bring a claim on someone else's behalf, for example a child or for someone who lacks capacity.
Anyone who deals with your claim will be a qualified solicitor with many years of experience. We are very approachable and easily contactable via phone or email. Take a look at what some of our clients have said about our service.
