We strive to achieve the best possible result for our clients, be it through negotiation and settlement or trial, in as short a time as possible. We represent clients in all courts from District to High Court. Our team of personal injury specialists have the skills and experience to guide you through the process of making a successful compensation claim.

Road Traffic Accidents

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, we can help you in seeking compensation not only for your injuries but also for the pain and suffering, medical costs and other financial losses incurred. We will seek compensation for your uninsured losses from the person responsible for the accident by claiming against their insurance policy.

General Damages

General damages are awards that are made for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity that are evidentially directly linked to the accident. The pain and suffering element of the award compensates the claimant for all past, present and future physical and psychiatric symptoms.

Loss of amenity means the inability to complete activities after an accident that you would have participated in previously, this loss can be temporary or permanent. This is an award designed to compensate you for the actual injuries suffered and the effect those have had on your quality of life.

Special Damages

This is a head of damages to compensate for any financial losses or out-of-pocket expenses as a result of the accident at work. This would include but is not limited to loss of earnings, future loss of earnings, medical treatment, damage to property, hire etc.

An injured person has a duty to take reasonable steps to minimise their losses/expenses and a Court will assess whether or not the loss was reasonably incurred before making an award.


If you are injured as a passenger in a road traffic accident you can bring a personal injury claim if the vehicle which you were travelling in was you are hit by another vehicle and also if the person driving the vehicle causes the accident. Often you will know this person, but this does not mean that you cannot bring a claim for personal injury compensation: You are still the victim of an accident which was not your fault and your personal injury compensation will be paid by an insurance company not by the driver. 

As a passenger involved in a road traffic accident you are not in control of the vehicle and therefore it is likely to be very easy to prove that the accident was not your fault. Full attention can be focused on your rehabilitation and obtaining your compensation as soon as possible. 

Our expert personal injury solicitors strive to provide an efficient service so that interim payments are obtained as early as possible and cases concluded on the best terms.

Accidents At Work

An Employers’ Liability claim or Accident at Work is an incident that occurs in the course of work which leads to a physical and possibly psychological injury.

Good employers recognise that proper health and safety is good for business and will take steps to ensure their systems of work and the workplace environment protects their employees. 

Sadly, some employers continue to breach health and safety law and even good employers' systems of work break down at times leading to workplace accidents.

We will use our wealth of experience when representing you to secure the maximum amount of compensation.

Our specialist workplace accident lawyers have dealt with work injury compensation claims. These include claims for:

  • Lacerations and cuts
  • Workplace burns
  • Soft tissue damage
  • Serious injuries, including brain and spinal injury accidents
  • Workplace fatalities.

If you have been the victim of poor health and safety practice, contact our accident at work specialists today to discuss making an injury at work claim.

Slips, Trips and Falls

If you have a slip, trip or fall because of a hazard or defect that wasn't your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your personal injury and financial losses incurred as a result of the accident.

These types of accidents usually fall into the following categories;

Accidents on roads and pavements – the council has a legal duty to maintain the roads and pavements to a reasonable standard. These claims can be difficult to prove as if the council can show they have adequate inspection records it can be a strong defence, however if these records are not up to a good standard you may be able to claim. 

Accidents in shops - shopkeepers have a legal duty to ensure the safety of their customers whilst on their premises, including car parks.

Accidents in other public places - places that are accessible to the public are also covered by laws to protect the public from suffering injuries.
