Personal Injury & Accident Claims

Had an accident?

If you have been injured as a result of an accident which was not your fault you may be entitled to compensation, both for your injuries, any loss of earnings and incidental expenses.

Personal Injury Claims

We believe that you should be treated as an individual, not just a "case number" and that as local Personal Injury Specialist Lawyers we are ideally placed to help. Our aim is to ensure that you obtain the maximum amount of compensation to which you are entitled.

We handle claims for very diverse injuries caused by a wide range of accidents.

Our areas of expertise:

Road Traffic Accidents

Whether they result in whiplash, a fatality or some other injury. We advise pedestrians, passengers, motor-cyclists and drivers.

Accidents at Work

This is a major specialism for us and we handle hundreds of claims each year.

Industrial Diseases

We advise on a full range of industrial diseases including:

  • Asbestos induced diseases
  • Noise induced hearing loss and tinnitus
  • Vibration White Finger / hand/arm vibration syndrome
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Dermatitis
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) / Work Related Upper Limb Disorders

Public Liability Claims (trips & slips)

This covers anything from uneven pavements to hazardous wet floors in public places.

Fatal Accidents

The loss of a loved one due to someone else's fault has a devastating impact on the whole immediate family. Although nothing can ever compensate for this, we can help in recovering compensation for the financial effect this has had on the family.

Infant Claims and Settlement

If you are under 18 when an accident occurs there is a special procedure involving court approval of an award. We have a wealth of experience in this area and can assist you through the procedure.

Product Liability/Defective Product Claims

If a product you have bought has caused you injury then there may be a claim against the manufacturer/supplier for the losses you have suffered.

Animal Attacks

Dog bites are the most common and most highly publicised.

Accidents Overseas

Sometimes a claim can be pursued through us, but if you need to take it through another channel we can point you in the right direction.

Clinical Negligence

Fortunately there are comparatively few incidences locally but we can handle any that do arise.
