We offer a highly personal service that’s tailored to every case. Our friendly and approachable team of experts will listen to you, and speak to you in plain English without legal jargon, as we want you to know exactly what’s going on at every stage of your claim.
To have a valid case, you need to be able to show that somebody else was at fault for the injuries or illness you’ve suffered. Sometimes that’s very straightforward. For instance, if your car is hit by a speeding car running a red light, then there’s little doubt as to who is responsible.
But in many cases, the fault isn’t quite so obvious and there’s uncertainty over where the liability lies.
This is why you should speak with a specialist Personal Injury Solicitor as soon as possible after the accident, so investigations can start immediately.
We’ll ensure a lead Solicitor is assigned to your case who will oversee your claim.
We fight hard to obtain the best results for our clients. Luckily, most cases don’t have to go to Court but rest assured, we have a skilled team of Solicitors and Barristers who will fight for you and represent you at Court if it’s needed.
We’re great negotiators and we’ve successfully recovered millions of pounds for our clients over the years.
We actively explore and encourage all settlement options for you including mediation and settlement meetings.
And we’re fortunate to work with some world-class clinicians, including doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapist, psychologists, cosmetic surgeons and prosthetics experts, who are able to recommend the very best and most appropriate treatment package for you.
In cases involving life-changing injuries, we don’t just act for the client. We also act for and support their families too.
Family matters and we provide help and advice to loved ones. We’ll also advise you if any of your family members can pursue compensation themselves for a secondary victim claim.
Our expertise and experience can make the difference between winning and losing a case, and be crucial in helping people injured in accidents to get the best possible compensation and rehabilitation support.

Frequently asked questions
- What is the claims process?
After taking on your claim, we’ll start to gather evidence and collect statements from you and any possible witnesses. We’ll need copies of any photographs taken at the accident scene, as these can help to prove your case. In road traffic accidents, helmet cam videos or dash cam footage can be vital.
A thorough investigation can then be carried out to find out exactly who’s responsible and should be held liable for your injuries.
We’ll also get hold of your medical records and ask an independent medical expert to assess your injuries, and to provide a written medical report. This will also help us determine how your injury has affected your life and identify any care and rehabilitation needs you may have.
When all the information has been assembled and reviewed by a specialist Personal Injury Solicitor, we can then calculate how much compensation you’re entitled to.
- How long will it take?
At this point, we approach the other party on your behalf to let them know you are making a claim for compensation. If they agree to settle straight away, the case could be resolved in a matter of months.
But if they deny liability and your claim has to be heard in Court, don’t worry, as we’ll be there alongside you, offering support every step of the way.
- How will I pay?
Claims can often be funded through a No Win, No Fee agreement - ask us for details.
