No Win, No Fee

A ‘no win, no fee’ claim is also known as a conditional fee agreement.

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. This means you can focus on your recovery, without worrying about legal fees.

If your case is successful, then our fees will be no more than 25% of your compensation.

Accident at Work

Your employer has a legal duty to give you a safe working environment. This means they should provide safe equipment and safe working practices. Employers should also provide protective equipment and appropriate training.

When an employer fails to provide these, serious injuries can happen that can affect your ability to work.

Accidents at work can occur in many different industries but are prevalent in the construction industry, manufacturing, and agriculture.

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

Road Traffic Accident

Being involved in a car accident can be a traumatic experience. The injuries sustained can vary from minor whiplash to severe and life changing. Injuries could require rehabilitation and on-going medical support.

Road traffic accidents can be caused by several factors. These include poor weather conditions, negligence of other road users, vehicle malfunctions and even poor road maintenance.

If you have been involved in an accident on the road, as the driver or a passenger, it is important to seek legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

Claims can be made for medical bills, repairs to your vehicle. But also, any income you have lost because of having had to take time off work because of your injuries. By contacting us, you can see if you have a case.

Serious Injury Claims

Serious injuries can have a life-changing impact not only on the individual who was injured but their family too.

Suffering a serious injury could mean that you need immediate and long-term care. Adaptations to your home and ongoing medical care may be required. It is also likely your injury will affect your ability to work in the future.

Serious injury cases can be incredibly traumatic to everyone involved. They can involve serious brain and head injuries to loss of senses such as hearing or sight. Claims can also be made on behalf of a relative that has suffered an injury.

Slips, Trips and Falls

Suffering from a serve slip, trip and fall can have an impact on your quality of life. Injuries to your back can limit your mobility. You could find that your injury has resulted in the loss of earnings. Potentially you may need to make adaptions to your home or had to require extra care.

In many cases, these accidents are the result of someone else’s negligence. This means they could have been avoided.

Slips caused by wet floors with no warnings, uneven flooring, poor lighting, or unexpected hazards are all common negligence issues. Has your life been altered because of negligence? You may have a case. Contact us for a free initial meeting.

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Failure to treat

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.

Personal Injury compensation claims should be brought within three years of the data of the occurrence.

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 think you have suffered 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. This ensures an official record of the incident, including time and date, exists.

For example, if you slipped on a wet floor in a shop you will want to record the accident with the shop owners. If you were injured at work, you will want to record the accident with your employer. If you tripped on the pavement, you would want to record the accident with the local authority.

Gather evidence

Collect the contact details of any nearby witnesses. Take photos of the area the accident took place and any injuries you sustained.

Seek legal advice
