If you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. With extensive experience across a wide range of personal injury cases, our expert team will evaluate your claim and advise as to whether and how we can take it further.
Some of the common types of personal injury we help people to claim for include:
- accidents at work
- road traffic accidents
- public liability claims
- criminal injury
- clinical negligence
No Win No Fee
Many of the claims we handle are on a no win no fee basis. This means that if your claim is successful, in most cases you can claim back your legal fees on top of any compensation you are awarded. We do however charge a success fee if we win your case. The amount of this fee will depend on the type of case and the fees we can claim back from the negligent party’s insurance company. This will all be discussed and agreed at the outset of your claim.
If your claim is unsuccessful, you won’t have to pay us anything, however you may be ordered to pay the other party’s legal fees and your own disbursements. This can be covered by an appropriate insurance policy which we can help you to arrange.
Not all cases can be handled on a no win no fee basis. This includes cases where the value of your claim is less than £1000, claims made to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, and claims against untraced motorists. In these situations your solicitor’s fees will not be paid by the other party and will therefore be deducted from your compensation.
How much personal injury compensation could I receive?
Every case is different. The amount of compensation you receive will be based upon the impact of the injury or illness on your life, taking into account factors such as pain and suffering, loss of earnings and medical expenses.
Clearly this will vary from one person to the next, so it’s impossible to predict a compensation figure without fully evaluating your individual case and circumstances.

The law imposes strict regulations on employers to protect the health and safety of their staff. This includes both physical wellbeing and mental health. If you’ve had an accident at work or suffered from any mental health issues as a result of working conditions, then you may be in a position to make a claim for compensation.
Don’t worry about any repercussions should you decide to pursue a claim. Your employer will have insurance in place to cover such events and is not allowed to victimise an employee for making a claim.
You can make a claim if you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident for which someone else was to blame, even if they were not insured or can’t be traced.
You can claim as a driver, passenger, motorcyclist, cyclist or pedestrian. As well as compensation for your injury, you can recover any loss of earnings and medical costs incurred because of the accident.
Accidents in this category range from slips and trips caused by badly maintained walkways, through to bites from dangerous dogs and many other scenarios in between.
Although not compulsory, potential defendants such as local authorities usually have public liability insurance in place to cover against such claims.
You may be eligible for compensation if you’ve been injured as a result of a violent crime. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority was set up to provide financial recompense for victims, and if your case satisfies certain criteria then you may be entitled to an award.
Whilst most medical care runs smoothly, things occasionally go wrong. If you’ve been injured as a result of negligent medical treatment, you may be able to make a claim against the hospital or doctors responsible.
