Catastrophic Injuries

If you suffer a serious accident you need a serious injury specialist to fight your case. We have a dedicated team of serious injury experts with many years experience of helping victims of serious accidents in particular those with complex, multiple injury claims.

We act for clients locally, nationally and internationally in claims involving hundreds of thousands to millions of pounds in damages.

We understand the effects that a serious injury can have on your home, your working life and above all your finances. We will deal quickly, sympathetically and professionally with your serious injury claim making the process as straightforward as we can. Our aim is to get you the maximum compensation as quickly as we can.

We understand that if you have suffered a very serious, life changing injury there is a huge amount to cope with and fresh challenges every day.  Over the years we have recovered tens of millions of pounds in compensation as a result of our thoroughness and imagination in terms of claiming every penny in losses and expenses to which our clients are entitled. Life changing injuries deserve life changing settlements.

We offer a highly specialised and highly personal service dealing with all aspects of your claim. If you need a personal injury trust so that you can continue to receive means tested benefits we can set that up. If you wish to buy and adapt a house we can deal with the legal aspects of that. If you are unable to manage your financial affairs as a result of your injuries we can act as a Court of Protection appointed deputy. If you have any legal expenses insurance your insurers will probably agree to pay for our services. Alternatively we can offer you a “no win, no fee” agreement with no hidden charges.

We offer free, no obligation, initial chats followed, if appropriate, by a home or hospital visit at a time that suits you.
