This type of agreement reduces your risk because there are no fees to pay upfront. And if your personal injury case is not successful, then you do not have to pay any legal fees, so long as you have co-operated with us and have not misled us. In other words, you can focus on your recovery, without worrying about legal fees.
But, if your case is successful, then our fees will be no more than 25% of your compensation.Information about No Win No Fee

Work-based accidents can include anything from injuries from manual handling to loss of limbs. Contact our personal injury solicitors if you think you may have a claim for compensation.Accident at Work Claims

Can I make a Personal Injury Claim?
If you wish to make a compensation claim, you need to act fast. There are strict legal time limits in place. This means the sooner you seek legal advice, the more help can be provided.
It is also important that the injury was caused by another party (either directly, or indirectly) who owed you a duty of care.
How do I make a Personal Injury Claim?
If you are suffering from an accident and believe you have a claim, it is important to follow these simple steps:
Report your accident
After any necessary medical treatment, it is vital that you report your accident to the person or authority you believe is responsible. As a result, an official record of the incident, including time and date, exists.
For example, for slips on a wet floor in a shop, you will need to record the accident with the shop owners. Likewise, injuries at work will need recording your employer. Meanwhile, trips on the pavement will need recording with the local authority.
Collect the contact details of any nearby witnesses. Gather more evidence by taking photos of the area the accident took place and any injuries you sustained, for example.
