When someone suffers an injury and they are not to blame they are usually legally entitled to claim compensation.

The majority of injuries are not too serious, but in some cases, they will often be unable to work and may need extensive rehabilitation. They may also need specialist aids and equipment, for example a prosthetic limb or an adapted car, in order to try and lead as normal life as possible. They can also become dependent on others, for example family and friends to help look after them or sometimes professional carers may be required when it becomes too much for family to manage. The results can be devastating for all concerned. Your compensation may well have to last you for the rest of your life.

We will use our extensive experience to guide you through the whole process. This will usually involve taking statements at the outset, before going on to obtain expert evidence which will document the nature and extent of your injury. Often more than one expert report will be needed.

Once the expert evidence is complete, we will ensure that all of your out of pocket expenses are documented in a Schedule of Loss. We then start negotiating to get you the damages that you are entitled too. If the other side are not willing to properly compensate you, we will commence court proceedings and take the matter to a trial where a judge will decide the proper level of compensation.

More often than not, after court proceedings are commenced settlement offers increase.

We prefer to meet face to face from the outset, as it is important to get to know the client and learn about the impact of an injury on them and their family. It also enables us to identify difficulties that they face around the home so that we can help alleviate those issues as part of the claim process.

What type of Claims do we deal with

  • Accidents At Work
  • Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority Claims (CICA)
  • Defective Products leading to injury
  • Fatal Accident Claims
  • Head injury Claims
  • Motorbike Claims
  • Repetitive Strain Injury Claims
  • Road Traffic Accident Claims
  • Sexual Abuse Claims
  • Slip and Trip Claims
  • Spinal Injury Claims

How Much will I get?

Understandably, this is the most common question we get. It is also very difficult to give a precise answer until all the evidence has been gathered. You may however get an idea of what the appropriate level of damages for pain and suffering might be by reference to the personal injury calculator below.

Personal injury calculator

This calculator will give you an initial estimation of your compensation award, but the overall award will of course depend on past and future losses and a variety of other factors. Please contact us for a free assessment.

How long will it take?

It is impossible to say how long it will take for your claim to conclude. We would not recommend settling your claim until we have a full prognosis. Often, with nasty soft tissue injuries, it can take up to two years before we know whether or not a full recovery will be made. We will never recommend settling a claim until we have a full prognosis, otherwise we cannot value you claim properly and get you the compensation you are entitled too.

How much will it cost me?

  • No win no fee: We can take on your case on a no win no fee basis (Conditional Fee Arrangements). This is the most common method. We believe that this affords peace of mind and certainty. The absolute maximum that we will deduct will be 25% of your damages for pain and suffering and past losses. You will not be asked to fund any disbursements (e.g. medical records, expert reports, court fees).
  • Legal expenses insurance: you may be covered under your home, car or other insurance that will pay for all or some of your costs. We tend to find, however, that these policies restrict the charge out rates we use as a result there may be a charge taken from your damages to cover the shortfall.
  • Private funding: you can fund the cost of the claim yourself. The disadvantage here is that if you lose your claim you will end up paying both ours and your opponent’s legal costs. If however you win, no damages would be deducted from your settlement, but you would still be responsible for any shortfall in our legal charges.
  • Damages Based Agreements (DBA) means legal costs are based on the damages you receive. These are very complicated and rarely used. We can discuss this method of funding with you.

How long have I got to bring a claim?

There is a time limit for making a personal injury claim. Generally, it is three years from the date you were injured or the date you became aware of the injury This is relevant for industrial disease claims where the injury or condition will often not be apparent for several.

For children (up to 18 years of age) the three-year time limit starts from their 18th birthday.

For CICA claims there is a time limit of two years. This is also the case in claims involving defective products or an accident caused on a plane.

It is therefore advisable to contact us as soon as you are aware of an issue.

When can I speak to someone?

We operate outside of the usual 9-5 office hours, so please feel free to call from early morning until late at night when we will be pleased to help. From the outset, we prefer to see clients face to face and at a time that suits you, be it at the weekend or in the evening. Please either call us or fill in the contact form and we will call you at a time of your choosing.
