Suffering a personal injury that was not your fault can have a significant effect on your life
The term ‘personal injury’ covers a very broad spectrum, including serious brain, spinal and orthopaedic injuries, as well as slips, trips and accidents at work.
Our specialist personal injury solicitors are not only experts in their legal field but also receive specialist training from our healthcare partners.
This gives our solicitors a unique understanding of the medical side of injury as well as the legal side, ensuring that all our personal injury compensation claims are dealt with using the highest levels of understanding and expertise.
