Personal injury lawyers

We work with a network of experienced no win no fee personal injury lawyers across the UK.

How is a personal injury lawyer different from other lawyers?

A personal injury lawyer is a solicitor who represents people who have been injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault. They specialise in helping people secure compensation following an injury.

As well as helping people make a compensation claim, they may also be able to help them access rehabilitation or counselling if they need it.

Who can make a personal injury claim?

Typically, we can help you make a personal injury claim if:

  • Your accident happened within the last three years
  • It was somebody else’s fault
  • You were injured as a result

There are some exceptions to this. For example, children can make a claim any time after their accident, up until their 21st birthday.

In some cases, such as head injuries, where your injury may have affected your mental capacity, you could have longer than three years to start your claim.

The best way to find out whether you can make a claim is to get in touch with us on 0800 376 0150. With 20 years’ experience, we can give you the help and advice you need.

If you don’t feel ready to speak to us yet, you can try our online claims checker.

Starting your claim

The idea of starting a personal injury claim can seem intimidating, and it’s likely you have a lot of questions. We’re here to help you.

As a helpline, we’re here to offer free, impartial advice. We can also guide you through the first steps of making a personal injury claim. We promise to never rush or pressure you into starting a claim either. So, you can decide whether you’d like to go ahead in your own time.

But, if you do decide you’d like to take the next steps, we can put you forward to one of our specialist solicitors. They’ll be happy to answer any further questions and discuss our no win no fee agreement with you.
