Personal Injury and Industrial Disease

Our expert personal injury lawyers can help to minimise the effects of an accident, by recovering the compensation you are entitled to, and ensuring you receive the correct support and treatment.

We have specialist local lawyers experienced in all types of injury claims, whether the injury resolves in a few months or is a catastrophic injury from which a full recovery is not expected. We strive to make the process of claiming compensation as simple and hassle-free as possible, and to provide a high quality personal service.

We act for clients based both in the South West and throughout the country as a whole. We are pleased that much of our work stems from recommendations from clients we have helped. Our Personal Injury Team is the largest in the area, reflecting the success we achieve. We will use our high level of practical experience and expertise to achieve the best result for you.

If liability is denied, we vigorously pursue our client's right to be compensated. We are committed to ensuring you are properly compensated and receive the best possible guidance to be able to get on with your life. All of our personal injury specialists are members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers and endorse its commitment to justice for injured persons.

Our personal injury lawyers spend all their time handling injury and disease claims, and each has thousands of hours of experience.

We are confident about our ability to successfully pursue claims and so we undertake most claims under conditional fee (no win no fee) agreements. We are paid if and when we succeed for you. We are also happy to act under legal expenses insurance and trade union funding where available.

Unlike some other firms, we make absolutely no deductions from your compensation for costs and expenses.

Appointments can be arranged at any of our offices in Somerset and Dorset, or we can deal with your case by telephone. We know the importance of personal contact. Home and hospital visits can be arranged where serious injuries or other restrictions prevent you coming to see us. We aim to be as accessible as possible, to help you bring your claim with the least inconvenience.
