Personal Injury Claims and Industrial Disease Claims

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.

Whether your accident is a  

  • Road Traffic Accident,
  • Accident at Work, or
  • Trip/Slip or Fall,   

we can help.

We also offer specialist advice on Industrial Disease and Asbestos-related claims including mesothelioma.

Locally based in Somerset and Dorset, we act for clients 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.  

Why Choose Battens?

Our Personal Injury Team is one of the largest in the area, with a high level of practical experience and expertise on a wide ranging portfolio including serious injury claims, whiplash injuries, accidents at work and dog bite claims.

We have qualified lawyers experienced in all types of injury claims, whether the injury resolves in a few months or is a catastrophic injury, for example head and brain injuries, from which a full recovery is not expected.    

We understand the trauma of the involvement in any accident in any setting, particularly car accidents or crashes.  That is why we strive to make the process of claiming compensation as simple and hassle-free as possible, all the while providing a high quality, personal service.

We are confident about our ability to successfully pursue claims and so we undertake most claims under No Win, No Fee Agreements (also known as Conditional Fee Agreements). We are paid if and when we succeed for you. Unlike some other firms, it is not our practice to make deductions from your compensation for our costs. We are also happy to act under legal expenses insurance and trade union funding where available.

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 (APIL) and endorse its commitment to justice for injured persons.
