Compensation claims for your injuries

If you have been injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault, our experienced team of personal injury solicitors can advise you on making an accident compensation claim.

We can help with accident claims for all types of injuries, including:

Under the Limitation Act 1980, there is generally a three year time limit to make an accident claim. If a claim is not formally brought before the expiry of this limitation period, then it will become statute barred, which means that you will be unable to pursue the claim any further. For further information regarding time limits for accident claims, please watch our video below.
