Types of Injury

Experiencing an injury due to an accident that was not your fault can have a huge impact on your life and in some cases prevent you from doing the things you want to do.

At Rotheras, our personal injury team will endeavour to make the claim process as simple and straight-forward as possible, so that you can focus on your wellbeing and recovery. We understand the physical and emotional implications of being involved in an accident and we will thoroughly assess your case to give you a clear idea of the likely prospects of your claim succeeding and what you can and cannot claim.

While we know that compensation can make a big difference by easing your financial worries and enabling you to cover your day to day living costs, as well as any additional costs, arising as a result of your accident, it is not necessarily the be-all and end-all. That is  why we work closely with you to understand  your full needs as a result of your injury and help you with any additional requirements, whether that is  extra care, or treatment, adaptations to your home, or pointing you in the direction of support groups.

Why use Rotheras to make a Personal Injury claim?

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

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

You will be assigned a dedicated member of our personal injury team who will discuss your circumstances with you, to ensure we can aid you with your recovery in the best possible way.

We will discuss your claim with you in detail, so we can be completely open and honest about the 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 progress at all stages, so you know exactly what is happening with your case.

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

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

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

We will take your specific needs into account when calculating a compensation settlement, such as any rehabilitation, or medical care you need and your future income if you can no longer work.

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.
