If you have an accident or suffer an injury on the road or pavement, at work or at home, out shopping or on holiday, in someone else’s home or vehicle, on public transport or in fact anywhere at all you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
We offer expert advice on all aspects of personal injury:
Sport, leisure and holidays should be enjoyable experiences. These activities, some of which may have been planned and saved for some significant time in advance, may be ruined if you are unfortunate enough to have suffered an accident that resulted from someone else’s negligence. In these circumstances, you may be entitle to make a personal injury compensation claim.
The nature of your injuries could be minor (mild food poisoning, short-lived gastric illness or bruising) or they could be very significant (broken bones, head injuries or spinal injuries). We have specialist teams of lawyers who can advise you whether you have a valid claim, and will be pleased to answer any queries you may have relating to your injury/losses.
Defective and Faulty Goods
When a product is sold to a consumer, it must be safe for its intended use and the Consumer Protection Act 1987 provides that if any product causes personal injury which was not due to its misuse, the injured person has the right to make a compensation claim against the manufacturer or retailer responsible. This may be the case even if you did not buy the faulty product.
Successful claims can be made for a wide range of faulty products. Our specialist team will be able to advise you as to whether your claim is likely to be successful, to explain the claims process and to answer any questions which you may have.

Criminal injuries compensation can be complex. Our specialist team can advise you whether you have a valid claim, and will be pleased to answer any questions you may have relating to your injury/losses.
