If you’ve been involved in an accident which wasn’t your fault, and have suffered an injury as a result of this accident, then you may well be entitled to claim compensation. Many people who’ve been involved in an incident such as a car accident and have walked away in one piece are often so relieved to have survived that they don’t see the point of seeking compensation as well, but this can be a short-sighted view.
The instant an accident occurs, the costs to the victim start accruing – medical bills, prescription charges, travel costs and wages lost through time spent off work – and these costs can become substantial over the coming years. If the injury is serious enough, you may have to leave your job entirely and seek work of which you are now capable, and any resulting drop in earnings are a direct consequence of the original accident, as are any costs involved in seeking care. In such cases it’s surely only right that those who were responsible for the accident should be made to foot the bill, rather than the innocent victim.
At Personal Injury we not only think that compensation is about reimbursing the victim of an accident for monetary losses, we also feel it’s an important part of the recovery process. Being injured through no fault of your own is a traumatic occurrence and, while no amount of money can make up for pain and suffering, the fact that blame has been apportioned and the responsible party made to pay can help to restore a sense of justice and fairness.
Despite all of this, many people are hesitant to take such action, fearing both the costs and difficulty of launching a legal case. That’s where we come in. Our team of highly trained, vastly experienced personal injury lawyers have dealt with injuries of every kind, from those caused in the split second of a car crash, to conditions which have built up over years of working in an unsafe environment. They’ll listen to you, take the details of your accident, and use these details to build a case which has every chance of being successful, establishing that you’ve been injured, either physically or psychologically, and that it wasn’t your fault.
Any complicated legal matters will be dealt with by them, as will any questions you may want to ask and any concerns you have regarding your case. The cases we deal with range across the whole spectrum of circumstances, from rear end shunts in a car and slips on unmarked wet floors in supermarkets, to complicated cases of medical negligence which can take many years to even reach court. We approach all of these cases in the same diligent manner.

We work on a No Win No Fee basis, which means that you can make a claim without having to worry about paying any money beforehand or being out of pocket if you lose your personal injury claim. It also means that we won’t take any of the compensation you receive, because we feel that if you deserve to be compensated, then you deserve to keep it all.
