How we can help you claim personal injury compensation

Working out whether you have grounds for a claim

In order to claim compensation, it must be the case that someone else was either wholly or partly to blame for your injuries. Proving this will be the first step in the claims process.

Our personal injury lawyers will obtain all available evidence, including medical records, accident reports, witness testimony and CCTV footage, making sure everything that supports your claim is brought to light. We can then give you the strongest possible legal basis for your claim.

Valuing your claim

Our aim is always to get the maximum possible compensation for our clients. This means ensuring that all of the ways in which your injuries have affected your life will be considered.

Out-of-court settlements for personal injury claims

In most cases, we are able to settle personal injury claims through negotiation, without the need for court proceedings. The advantages for you of avoiding court include allowing you to get compensation faster, provides certainty and is much less stressful for you.

Representation for personal injury claims in court

In the event that court proceedings are required to secure fair compensation for you, we will be by your side every step of the way. Our personal injury lawyers will prepare your case and ensure you have the very best representation.

Securing interim payments for personal injuries

Where required, we can assist you with seeking interim payments to cover your costs (eg, paying for rehabilitation and replacing lost income) while your claim is still ongoing. This ensures you get the support you need and reduces financial hardship while your claim is being pursued.

Managing your personal injury compensation

It is really important to make sure personal injury compensation is managed the right way after a successful claim. This is to ensure the funds will cover your long-term needs, as well as your immediate requirements.

We have strong expertise in managing personal injury compensation and can advise on options, including placing the funds into a Personal Injury Trust. A Personal Injury Trust allows you to protect your compensation, so it does not count towards means-testing for benefits.

Our Client Funds Management Team can also assist with managing compensation for anyone who is unable to manage their own financial affairs, for example due to the effects of a traumatic brain injury.

Helping you to access rehabilitation, care and support

Early access to the right treatment, care and support is important. This is something our Client Rehabilitation Service regularly assists with. Our Rehabilitation Co-ordinators are there to help guide you through the maze of therapeutic help and treatment and enable you to access all of the specialist services needed as swiftly as possible.

Funding for personal injury claims

“No win, no fee” personal injury claims

Most personal injury claims we handle are funded through Conditional Fee Agreements. This is sometimes called “no win, no fee”.

With a no win, no fee personal injury claim, we do not charge you anything when taking on your case, with our fees only being applied if and when we win compensation for you. This also means there is no financial risk to you in funding a claim this way[2].

Whilst most injury claims proceed with us on a no win, no fee basis, there may be other funding options / arrangements available to you, which we will be happy to discuss.
