Research by the Health and Safety Executive has found that in 2017/18 alone, 144 workers were killed at work, an estimated 555,000 workers sustained non-fatal injuries, and a staggering 1.4 million people suffer from a work-related illness. This equates to 30.7 million working days lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury, which in turn costs the UK economy £15 billion annually.
Add to this 1,793 reported deaths and 24,831 serious injuries due to road traffic incidents (Department for Transport), injuries sustained during sport and leisure activities, and accidents caused by slipping and tripping, and it’s plain to see that hiring a specialist legal firm is essential if you require advice or wish to take action.

We have a specialist Personal Injury Department that deals with all types of personal injury and medical negligence claims. All cases are dealt with by experienced lawyers and the Firm is fully accredited by The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, which means that your specific situation and best interests will always be at the core of the service that we deliver.
Whilst applying a wealth of experience and in-depth understanding of this area of law to your case, we also deal with everything sympathetically and with the utmost respect, minimising the stress that can often come hand in hand with such a sensitive process.
Our emphasis is on ensuring the best possible settlement for your claim. You can rest assured that we will do everything in our power to guide you through the process, explain any developments, and recommend the best course of action.
The result is a straightforward and smooth customer experience, with many claimants receiving satisfactory settlements that help them to maintain their usual standard of living following the accident or injury.
In appropriate cases we can deal with the matter on a No Win No Fee basis. In the first instance, we will assess the viability of your case before deciding whether or not we can accept it on a No Win No Fee basis and no charge will be made for the time spent in carrying out this assessment.
Thereafter, and if the case is accepted by us, you will not have to make any payments to us during the life of the case. In the event of the claim being successful, any fees then due to us will be deducted from the compensation you receive, but those fees will never exceed 25% of the compensation you are receiving.
If you’ve been in an accident or sustained an injury, contact us today for expert advice.
