Personal Injury

Experiencing a personal injury can be physically and emotionally traumatic and affect your whole life, from your ability to work and carry out day to day tasks, to taking part in social activities.

Whether you have been involved in an accident at work, a road traffic accident, or sustained injury as a result of a beauty procedure gone wrong, or a loved one has been injured in a care home, we may be able to help you claim compensation.

At Rotheras, our Personal Injury team are dedicated to helping individuals and their families get their life back on track. Not only are we committed to getting justice and compensation for those who have been injured through no fault of their own, but we help you get access to other things that you might need, to aid your recovery, from medical care and ongoing support from rehabilitation services.

We understand that bringing a claim for compensation can seem overwhelming and stressful but our team are with you every step of the way, in order to guide and support you and get you the compensation you are entitled.

We would always advise making a claim as soon as possible after your accident, as this makes it easier to collate information and evidence to help support your claim. This often includes photographs of where the accident took place and what caused it, to details of witnesses that can be interviewed and any official records of the accident.

Why use Rotheras for Personal Injury claims?

We handle everything from straightforward cases to complex high-value claims.

We handle cases on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.

When you instruct us, you will be assigned a fully qualified member of the personal injury team, and provided with their direct contact details. They will deal with your case from initial instruction to completion and support you throughout the process.

We will discuss your claim with you in detail, so we can be completely open and honest about the likely prospects of you winning your claim, as well as the level of compensation you may receive.

You will be supported by us from start to finish and kept updated on the progress at all stages, so you know exactly what is happening with your case.

We will travel to your home, or hospital if it is more convenient for you.

We can help you in accessing any additional services you might require, from ongoing medical care, to rehabilitation treatment.

We can try to arrange interim payments before settling your compensation claim, to ensure immediate care, or rehabilitation needs are met.

We can assist you if you are making a claim on behalf of a child, or a family member, who no longer has mental capacity, or a family member, who passed away as a result of the accident.

We are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

We are accredited with the Law Society’s Personal Injury scheme.

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.

Myth-busting – What are your Legal Rights in a Long-Term Relationship?

Between 1970 and 2015, marriage was in sharp decline. This cultural shift, as more people choose to live together, means there is confusion over the rights of individuals in long-term relationships. With the number of divorce and cohabiting cases on par here at Rotheras, this post answers questions you may have, what you can do and how to navigate a highly emotional period in your life.
