A dedicated, personal and professional service.

Personal Injury


If you are unfortunate enough to be the innocent victim of a serious accident you need to choose the right personal injury lawyer to ensure you get the compensation you deserve. At Hart Brown we have a specialist team of dedicated personal injury experts with over 50 years experience of helping victims of accidents.

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

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 can 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.

Often we are able to offer:

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

To speak to a specialist personal injury lawyer who can help you with your personal injury compensation or insurance claim contact us now by calling, emailing or requesting a callback.

Partner, 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.

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.
