Personal Injury Claims
There are various types of personal injury claims, the usual types being road traffic accidents, accidents at work, slipping/tripping accidents and fatal injuries.
If you suffer an accident not only do you have to recover from it with the associated pain and suffering, you are likely to have also suffered out of pocket expenses, be it loss of earnings, travel costs or medical costs. If you had an accident within the last three years where you suffered an injury, and someone else is to blame then you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
We understand that being involved in an accident can be a traumatic and stressful experience. That’s why we offer a compassionate and personalised approach to every case we handle. We will take the time to listen to your story, explain your legal options, and guide you through the claims process.
No win, No fee.
For Personal Injury claims we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, also known as a conditional fee agreement, which is a method of funding a claim for compensation. It means that if your claim for compensation is not successful, you will not have to pay for our services.
What do I pay?
Should your compensation claim be successful, the majority of the legal costs incurred will be recovered from the compensator. Other costs will require payment by you and are taken at the end of the case, such as a ‘success fee’, which refers to a percentage of compensation that is recovered; along with any insurance premium (as your solicitor will advise you to take out a policy of insurance to cover costs such as medical report fees, barrister’s fee etc.)
Accidents at Work
This is a very broad category and can involve office based accidents to factory accidents caused by defective machinery or dangerous machinery. Various injuries can be caused by workplace accidents from minor slip and trip to serious head injuries, losing a limb and sometimes even fatal injuries.
Slipping and Tripping Accidents
These generally occur where you trip over a defect in the pavement or road, for example a pothole or raised slab but also can include slip accidents at supermarkets, shops, restaurants etc.
With any claim for compensation you are also able to claim out of pocket expenses including loss of earnings.
We are able to act on a no win no fee basis but will also check whether you have any relevant legal expenses insurance.

“I found Mr Howarth approachable, very caring, understanding and patient with my limited law knowledge and helped me to build confidence to proceed with my case.”
“It was a pleasure having Patrick as my solicitor, he was very professional and put me at ease throughout the process. He was easy to contact and always had time for me, I felt he had my interests at heart. I would recommend anyone wanting to pursue a claim to use Patrick. ”
“I just wanted to take the opportunity to say how incredibly impressed I’ve been by the level of service provided by Abhinav Mohindru. He guided me through a situation that was incredibly difficult for me. I had a claim submitted against me that was founded on lies and misinformation. Not only did Mr Mohindru guide me as to how to respond and deal with it but he also offered a lot of reassurance as he could highlight how poor the submissions were from the claimant.
Mr Mohindru was knowledgeable, professional, factual on his advice and confident in his assertions which is exactly what I needed in that situation. I want to state that I would highly recommend him to anyone requiring legal assistance.
