Personal Injury Claims

Injury Types

If you’ve been injured in an accident, you may be unable to work or enjoy life in the way you used to. Compensation can help by easing your financial worries and paying for rehabilitation and physio.

When making a compensation claim, it’s important to have experienced solicitors on your side. Our personal injury experts help thousands of people to claim compensation every year.

As one of the leading personal injury teams in the UK, you can rely on us to fight tirelessly for the compensation you need. We know however that compensation is only part of the story, so we’ll also advise you on rehabilitation and any benefits that you and your family may be eligible for.

With hundreds of personal injury experts based in our offices across the country, we’re experienced in all types of claims, from sprains and strains right up to life-changing brain and spinal injuries.

No Win No Fee Claims

Most of the claims we handle are on a no win no fee basis, which means:

  • You won’t have to pay a penny out of your own pocket
  • There’s no financial risk to you if your claim is unsuccessful*

How Much Compensation Could You Receive?

The amount of compensation you get will depend on your personal circumstances. When negotiating a settlement for you, we’ll take a range of factors into account, including your pain and suffering, loss of earnings and how the injury affected your life.

Injury Types - More Information
    • What If I Don't qualify for no win no fee?
    • If your case doesn’t meet the no win, no fee criteria, there may be other options available to you.

      You may have Legal Expenses Insurance on your home insurance policy, for example, or you may be a member of a trade union which covers legal expenses. We’ll discuss the best options for you during your initial consultation. 

    • Are there exceptions to the three-year time limit?
    • Adults can make claims for children up until their 18th birthday. If they reach 18 and a claim hasn’t been made for them, they can make their own claim up until their 21st birthday.

      There’s no time limit to make claims on behalf of people who lack the mental capacity to make a claim themselves.

      If your claim relates to a criminal assault, generally the limit is two years. However, this can be extended in some circumstances, for example if you were too ill to claim.

      If you were injured by a faulty product, you’ll have 10 years from the product launch date to make a claim.

      Finally, if the injury happened abroad, the time limit may be shorter. We can advise you on specific regions.

      Regardless of the circumstances of your injury, get in touch with us as soon as possible. The earlier you contact us, the easier it is for us to gather evidence to support your claim. 

    • What are interim compensation payments?
    • Where applicable, interim compensation payments cover ongoing costs while you recover from your injury, for example, travel expenses to and from hospital. These funds are awarded before your final settlement and will be deducted from your final compensation amount. We’ll let you know if we think you will benefit from interim compensation payments.

    • what if my opponent doesn't accept responsibility?
    • We always try to negotiate an out-of-court settlement for you as this is generally less stressful for all parties, particularly during difficult recovery periods. If your opponent denies responsibility or disagrees with the proposed settlement, we’ll begin court proceedings.

      Often, even when trial dates have been set, claims are settled before reaching court. If it does go to court, we’ll guide you through every step.

Your encouragement and advice to pursue the claim was good and we are both grateful for your support. Thank you again for your diligence and support throughout the process."
