Our services for personal injury claims in Nottingham

Road traffic accidents, including motorcycle accidents, cycling accidents and e-scooter claims

Whether you are a driver, passenger or other road user, if you are hurt in an accident that was not your fault or not entirely your fault, you are likely to be able to make a claim for compensation if the incident has left you with injuries.

Our road traffic accident solicitors have extensive experience in handling this type of claim, successfully taking on the legal teams for large insurers and working to secure the best possible compensation.

Whether it is a more relatively minor injury such as low-level whiplash or a high-value accident claim, we will provide you with the representation you need.

Accidents at work

It can be particularly difficult to make a claim if you are injured at work, but if the incident was caused by your employer’s negligence or someone else’s actions, you should speak to a work accidents compensation solicitor as soon as possible.

We can step in to deal with your employer and their insurer on your behalf, securing evidence and making a claim for the compensation that you deserve.

Brain injury claims

Brain injury claims can be complex and lengthy and you are strongly advised to speak to a brain injury claim specialist to ensure that you or your loved one has the representation necessary to obtain full compensation and security for the future.

Our team includes specialists in this type of personal injury. We will make sure that any claim includes compensation for the cost of needs such as rehabilitation, personal care, specialist equipment and medical requirements not covered by the NHS, as well as compensation for pain and suffering and financial losses such as loss of income.

If you need to start a brain injury compensation claim, call us today and we will provide the robust representation necessary to secure the right payment.

Medical negligence and claims against the NHS, including surgical mesh claims

If you have been treated by a medical professional, such as a doctor, nurse, dentist or other healthcare or cosmetic professional, you are entitled to receive treatment that does not fall below the standard reasonably expected of a professional in that field.

Where the treatment you have received falls below this standard and you have suffered harm as a result, you are strongly advised to speak to an expert medical negligence solicitor about making a claim for compensation.

We have many years of experience in dealing with clinical negligence cases, including NHS compensation claims and surgical mesh claims, and we can represent you in securing damages for the pain and suffering you have been left with, as well as for any financial losses.

MOD claims

If you are injured while working for the military, you may need a specialist MOD claims solicitor to deal with the issue. This is because MOD compensation claims can require careful handling .

We have been dealing with MOD compensation for many years and work with a panel of medical specialists with expertise in military claims. They have a strong understanding of the types of injuries suffered by military personnel and are able to provide the comprehensive reports that will form the basis for your claim.

Military compensation cases we routinely handle include:

  • Military accidents at work
  • Military personnel road traffic accidents
  • Compensation for serious injuries in the military
  • Representation in front of boards of inquiry and inquests
  • Clinical negligence in the military

Public liability claims (including trip and slip) and supermarket claims

If you have been injured in a supermarket or in a public place, such as on a public pavement, because of negligence on the part of the owner, the occupier or the local authority, you may be able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries. For example, if you have fallen because of a tripping hazard or slipped on wet flooring and been hurt, you may be entitled to damages.

Our public liability solicitors can discuss with you what has happened and give you an assessment of your claim and the amount you might expect to receive.

Travel claims

If you were harmed while on holiday because of someone’s negligence, our travel claims solicitors can provide expert representation and make a claim on your behalf. Examples of travel injury compensation claims we regularly deal with include:

  • Road traffic accidents on holiday, including if you were a passenger or pedestrian
  • Slips and trips in hotels or other establishments
  • Food poisoning from hotels or restaurants
  • Injuries sustained in your holiday accommodation or complex because of negligence, for example, poor condition of buildings or inadequate maintenance

We deal with both claims through holiday companies and claims against overseas businesses for travel injury compensation.

Catastrophic injury claims

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, you need representation from a specialist catastrophic claims solicitor. We regularly deal with this type of claim and have the experience and attention to detail to successfully take on the complexity of a large case.

Serious injury claims can take time to settle as we will need to explore your long-term prognosis to ensure that you are fully compensated for all of your financial losses, including your future losses, such as future loss of earnings, as well as for pain and suffering and any loss of amenity.

Where necessary, we can make a claim for interim payments to ensure that financial assistance is available while your claim is ongoing.

Product liability claims

If you have suffered an injury because of a faulty product, we can advise you on making a claim for compensation. We will identify where liability lies and contact the party at fault and their insurer to inform them of your claim. Examples include faulty electrical equipment, badly designed products that have caused injury, including injuries to babies or children, defective medical equipment and contaminated food products, including those that have caused an allergic reaction.

Injuries suffered outside the UK

If you have suffered a personal injury overseas, you may feel that it is too difficult to pursue a claim. Our team have a network of agents we use based in other countries who are able to help bring a claim for overseas injury compensation.

Fatal accidents

If a family member has suffered a fatal accident because of negligence, a claim can be brought on behalf of their estate. This can be particularly important if there are children to be supported.

Our team are exceptionally understanding and know how difficult it is for a family to deal with this type of claim. We will make the process as easy as possible for you and do everything possible to secure substantial compensation for what has happened.
