In many Serious Injury cases, we’ll try to get you an Interim Payment. This can help you with any additional costs you have because of your injuries and would mean you won’t have to wait until your claim is completed to receive some of your compensation.

Can I Make a Personal Injury Claim?
To make a claim for compensation, we need to show that somebody else was responsible for your injuries or illness.
Sometimes that’s straightforward.
If your car is hit by a speeding car running a red light, then it’s easy to see who’s responsible.
But in many personal injury cases, responsibility isn’t so obvious and there can be questions over who is responsible.
We can help you to understand who is responsible for your injuries or illness.
Even if you contributed to your injuries, such as not wearing a seatbelt in an accident that wasn’t your fault, we can still help you, although your compensation will be reduced to reflect your responsibility.
How Much is Your Personal Injury Claim Worth?
This depends on a number of different things including:
- How serious your injuries are
- Whether you’ll need continuing care or adaptations to your home because of your injuries
- If you need rehabilitation or physiotherapy
- How much you lost in earnings due to your injuries
- Whether you were partly responsible for your injuries
Our specialist Solicitors will talk to you in more details about how much compensation they expect you to get, but the final outcome depends on many issues.
What Happens When You Contact our Personal Injury solicitors?
- You’ll get a free initial consultation
We’ll talk to you about your accident, your injuries and tell you how we can help you.
- We’ll make sure a lead Solicitor is assigned who will oversee your claim
You’ll know who your lead Solicitor is. They will make sure that you’re kept up to date on your care and work with you to get the best possible outcome.
- Contact the insurers of the person responsible for your accident
We will ask them to admit responsibility (liability) for the accident as soon as possible and pay for early rehabilitation for you.
- Ask for an early interim payment
To help with any financial pressure and to pay for medical and rehabilitation treatment, we’ll ask for an interim payment whilst we finalise your claim. We can only get an interim payment once they’ve admitted partial or full responsibility.
- Gather additional evidence
We’ll get more evidence to support your claim. This could include independent medical expert evidence, witnesses who saw the accident or can explain the amount of help you’ve needed after the accident, and anything else we think supports your claim.
- Fight to get you the best compensation possible
It’s important that we maximise your settlement. We’ll fight all the way to get you the best possible compensation. Once agreed, we’ll make sure you get your settlement money as soon as possible.

Will I have to go to Court?
Luckily, most personal injury cases don’t go to Court. But if yours does, our skilled team of Solicitors and Lawyers will fight for you and represent you in Court.
Most claims are settled out of Court and our experienced negotiators have successfully won hundreds of millions of pounds in compensation for our clients over the years. See our Personal Injury Case Studies.
We’ll actively explore and encourage all compensation settlement options for you, including mediation and round table settlement meetings.
Working with Personal Injury Partners
We’re fortunate to work with world-class clinicians, including doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapist, psychologists, cosmetic surgeons and prosthetics experts, who can recommend the very best and most appropriate treatment for you. We also have several partnerships with organisations including the Spinal Injuries Association, Headway, BRAKE, The Child Brain Injury Trust, The British Lung Foundation and Action against Medical Accidents.
Solicitors for Serious Personal Injuries
When a personal injury case involves life changing injuries, we don’t just act for our client. We also act for and support their families too.
We are able to signpost our clients to the best resources available providing support, rehabilitation and guidance in what can be a very traumatic time. This can also include getting early access to medical treatment which sometimes may not be available within the NHS which can be paid for as part of your personal injury claim.
Families matter, and we give help and advice to family and loved ones. We’ll let you know if any of your family members can pursue compensation themselves as a secondary victim, if appropriate.
Some of our Solicitors are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), Headway and Motor Accident Solicitors Society (MASS).
We’re also authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).

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.
