Can I make a claim?

Every case is unique and we will need to discuss your particular circumstances with you but if you have suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s fault, we would usually hope to be able to make a claim for you.

Are you a Claims Company?

No we are not.  We are a team of specialist solicitors with extensive experience in handling personal injury claims.

Are there any time limits?

Ordinarily, a person has three years from the date of the accident to make a claim.  This time limit can be extended but only if there are good reasons for this.

Is there a lot of form-filling involved?

There are some forms which we need you to sign but not too many.  We try and get these all signed by you at the start and once you have done so, you can then leave things to us.

Will I get to meet my solicitor?

We try and meet as many of our clients as we can although we can do a lot of our work over the telephone.  We will do our best to come and see you, wherever possible.

How long will it take?

A typical compensation claim will take between 6 and 12 months to conclude from first contacting us.

How much will I get?

This is a very difficult question.  We will discuss with you the likely value of your claim but the reality is that the more seriously injured you are, the more your claim should be worth.  Please have a look at our Claims Calculator as a basic guide.

Will I have to see a medical expert?

Generally speaking, you will have to see a medical specialist.  Whenever we arrange a medical appointment, we always try and make this as convenient as possible for you and with a specialist who is local to you.

Is your service totally free?

Yes.  If we win your case, the Defendants or their insurers pay our costs in addition to paying your compensation and if we do not win, we do not charge. You have our 100% guarantee of this.

Who pays for things like medical fees?

These can be covered by insurance which we can take out on your behalf at no expense to you.  As with our own costs, we would never look to you for payment of fees.

Do I have to go to court?

95% of cases settle without anyone having to go to court. We cannot guarantee that your case won’t be one of the 5% that do, but it is very unlikely.
