Personal injury

Expert guidance and support from trusted personal injury solicitors

Understanding personal injury law

We have a deep understanding of the medical and legal issues involved and, most importantly, we really care so we fight hard for every client.

We are experienced in dealing with a wide range of claims, from orthopaedic trauma cases to catastrophic injury and fatal accident cases. Slips and trips, road traffic accidents, work accidents but also historic sexual abuse and fatal claims and inquests. 

Importantly, we’re independent of insurer panel and claims management companies. This means we can run our cases as we see fit with complete freedom of choice in terms of experts and counsel.

How our personal injury solicitors can help you

Legal experts in life-altering injuries

Our lawyers have particular expertise in life-altering brain and spinal cord injury and are currently working on several cases of maximum severity for those affected by tetraplegia and paraplegia.

Many claims we handle involve cross-border elements – either the injury happened overseas or the victim is a non-UK resident injured in the UK. We are used to working with overseas agents where appropriate.

We have had a key role in the Grenfell Tower public inquiry and assisted with the inquest work arising out of the deaths resulting from the fire.

Our approach

Offering flexible funding arrangements to suit your needs

We can offer flexible funding arrangements for clients. The financial strength, size and diversity of the firm also means that in certain circumstances we can offer in-house funding for claims which have a strong chance of success but where the client is in difficult financial circumstances. This is part of our commitment to ensure access to justice for all.
