Personal Injury

Compensation is available if you have been hurt as a result of negligence or Breach of Statutory duty.  If you think this is the case then please contact us and we can discuss whether we feel anyone is liable for your injuries.  We may be able to obtain compensation for your injuries together with any consequential financial loss you may have suffered.

We will discuss the claim with you and, if appropriate, lodge a claim on your behalf.  Most personal injury claims are dealt with under a Protocol which requires insurers to respond to us within 3 months.  They must either accept responsibility for what has happened or, if denied, explain why.

If responsibility is admitted we can then proceed to obtain medical evidence in support of your claim, which may also include obtaining rehabilitation treatment for you or an operation to assist with your recovery. Once you have recovered, you will be referred to an independent Consultant who will see you to prepare a medico legal report in support of your claim.  This report will help us assess the level of General Damages appropriate for your injuries/recovery.  We can also claim Special Damages, for any financial losses and expenses which you have incurred as a direct result of the accident.

If responsibility is denied we will discuss with you the options available, which may involve issuing formal court proceedings. Although even if we do this it is not necessarily the case that the matter will progress to a court hearing as many cases are settled by way of negotiation during this process.

In the first instance we will also discuss with you the question of costs.  It may well be that your claim is suitable for a Conditional Fee (or ‘no win, no fee’)  Agreement.

During this process one of our highly experienced team will support you through each stage of your claim, keeping you up to date with the progress of your case.
