Accidents & Injuries

Being involved in an accident that was not your fault can be a frightening experience.  If you receive a personal injury because of the mishap, the distress can increase ten-fold.  Not only do you have to recover and perhaps adjust to a ‘new normal’, there are likely to be pressing financial worries to contend with if you have to take time off work for rehabilitation.

If your accident was caused by the negligence of another person, local body or corporation, you may be entitled to compensation.  Our accident injury solicitors can advise and guide you through the claims process.

Types of accidents you can claim for

There are many types of accidents you can claim for.  It is not necessarily the type of accident you have had or the personal injury sustained that determines whether you can claim compensation; what is essential is that negligence can be proved.

To claim compensation for a personal injury, you must be able to show:

  1. the person or body responsible for your injury owed you a duty of care,
  2. they breached their duty, and
  3. that breach resulted in you suffering harm

Our accident injury solicitors have an in-depth understanding of personal injury law and will provide you with support and robust representation.  We can draw on a panel of expert healthcare professionals to help build a strong case for compensation.  Many claimants are concerned they will have to appear in court; however, most of our cases settle well before the hearing date thanks to our team’s strong negotiation and mediation skills.

No win, no fee

We understand that many personal injury victims are facing financial pressure because of the accident they have suffered. Therefore, we provide no win, no fee arrangements for most of our personal injury cases.  This means if your case does not succeed, you will not pay any legal fees (although you may pay disbursements).
