Compare Personal Injury Solicitors

If you have suffered from an injury as a result of an accident and someone else was to blame, then you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Personal Injury Solicitors typically works on a no win no fee basis.  This means that you won't usually have to pay any fees unless you are successful in your claim and the soliciyors fees would be deducted from your compensation.

Some personal injury lawyers do not work on a no win no fee basis however, so it can certainly pay to shop around before deciding which firm to instruct.

Many people are reluctant to make a claim as the whole process can appear quite intimidating.  Persona Injury (sometimes referred t as 'PI') solicitors are used to working with victims of accidents and tend to be very caring and sensitive in their approach.

With some exceptions, you can start your claim within 3 years of the actual date of the accident.  This is clearly not possible in cases such as asbestos related disease or noise induced hearing loss, so the 3 year limit applies to the date that the victim becomes aware of the illness and that it results from conditions at the place of work.

If you intend to make a claim on behalf of a minor, then the claim can be initiated at any time up to the child's 18th birthday.  Thereafter a claim can still be made within 3 years if the victim wishes to do so.

A common question relates to the amount of compensation a victim is likely to proceed.  Compensations vary enormously depending on the severity of the injury, the quantifiable loss the victim has suffered e.g. through lost earnings and whether there are ongoing care needs.

Personal injury solicitors tend to deal with a vast array of different cases.

Broadly speaking these can be categorised as follows:


  • Accidents at work
  • Accidents abroad
  • Accidents at home
  • Aeroplane accidents
  • Amusement park accidents
