Serious Injury Claims

When an accident results in a serious injury, the lives of both the victim and those close to them can change in an instant.

Being affected by a serious injury can mean a total rethink of major life decisions and can have implications on family members and those close to the victim of the injury. Such an event can also have a huge impact on employment, healthcare and of course, everyday life.

Put simply, serious accidents such as those which result in head, brain and spinal cord injuries or amputations, are incredibly disruptive and can completely change lives.


As experienced personal injury solicitors, accredited by The Law Society, we are dedicated to the needs of clients with even the most devastating of injuries. Our team were also involved in creating The Serious Injury Guide, a collaborative work between the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Forum of Insurance Lawyers (FOIL), which is an agreement between claimant and defendant solicitors to act in the best interests of the injured party.

Our serious injury solicitors pride themselves on making a real difference in assisting victims and are here to help you return to living a life that is as close as possible to life prior to your accident.

To find out how we can assist you, call us now on 0800 195 95 90 to talk to one of our expert solicitors. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are here to help with all of your questions.

Making A Serious Injury Claim

Using a compassionate approach, our solicitors will fight tirelessly to ensure we obtain the highest level of compensation for the accident that you have been affected by.

We are here to help whether your case involves a clear-cut claim for damages, or a complex claim that requires future care and rehabilitation arrangements. In certain cases that may require cognitive rehab, physiotherapy or care and assistance with supported living, we may work with case management organisations who help oversee all the rehabilitation and liaise between parties to ensure a joined up approach to care is taken.

With any claim, we will also work to ensure the victim is not only fully compensated for any injuries sustained, but also for any other unexpected expenditure arising as a result of the accident. This of course, includes any on-going support, care and rehabilitation needed.

In 2013/14, 100% of our clients told us that they were satisfied with our service, with 73% rating us as ‘outstanding’. 4

Serious injuries such as brain injuries, head or spinal cord injuries and adjusting to life after an amputation require dedicated support. We believe that a claim of this nature is about far more than the sum of damages awarded and will ensure our clients are provided with the finest possible care and rehabilitation.

We have previously assisted clients with the following serious injury claims:

  • Severe workplace accidents
  • Support for relatives of victims of fatal road traffic accidents
  • Amputations / loss of limb
  • Traumatic head / brain injury
  • Burns
  • Disfigurement
  • Quadriplegia
