Personal Injury Solicitors

If you are unfortunate enough to be the victim of a serious accident you need to choose the right personal injury solicitor to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. At Hart Brown, we have a specialist team of dedicated personal injury compensation solicitors who are highly knowledgeable with over 50 years experience in helping victims of accidents.

Our personal injury solicitors understand the effects an injury can have on your home life, social life, work, and finances. We will deal sympathetically, yet professionally, with your accident claim to make the process as straightforward as possible. The aim of our personal accident solicitors is to get you the maximum amount of compensation as quickly as we can by acting on your behalf.

We deal with all types of serious accident compensation claims, acting for clients locally, nationally and internationally.

If you have legal expenses insurance, your insurers may agree to pay for our services. Alternatively, we might be able to offer you a “no win, no fee” agreement with no hidden charges. Either way, in the vast majority of cases we can recover most of our costs from the other side’s insurance company.

Our personal injury claim solicitors are often able to offer:

  • a home or hospital visit
  • expert advice on “no win, no fee” agreements and legal expenses insurance

Partner, Head of Personal Injury & Clinical Negligence

Gerard Sanders

Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims, achieving seven figure settlements in personal injury cases involving amputation, multiple orthopaedic injuries and head injuries.

His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.

Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.

Gerard’s other professional qualifications include a Diplome D’Etudes Juridiques Francaises from Strasbourg University.

What do people say about Gerard?

“I have the highest regard for you and your company.” – Dr Philip Steadman , Consultant Psychiatrist.

“He is a pleasure to work with and always gains the absolute best outcome for those who instruct him. He is highly responsive and he has an eye for detail with a sensible overview of the global issues.” – Colin McDevitt, Barrister, 3 Paper Buildings.

“I think that is an excellent outcome!. You have phenomenal negotiation skills. I work with insurers every day and to say the very least they are a challenge!” – client.

“It has been an unbelievably difficult time over the past few years. The decision to have my leg amputated was not particularly easy, nor was the rehabilitation. To do all of that whilst worrying about my case would have quite simply been overwhelming. Having you there meant that I had none of that worry. I have always known as I was in incredibly good hands and that I had nothing to be concerned about… You have made a unfathomably difficult situation immeasurably easier, and I will be forever grateful to you.” – client.
