Personal Injury Bideford

An accident can turn your world upside down. Without warning and through no fault of your own you can suffer a sudden injury, leaving you struggling to cope. Money worries, job security and child care are just some of the problems you can be unexpectedly confronted with. This can be particularly upsetting at a time when you are most vulnerable. It is therefore important to appoint an experienced and specialist firm of solicitors who can manage all these issues on your behalf while you concentrate on getting better.

How we can help you

Our injury claim team are recommended by the influential and totally independent guide to the law, the Legal 500. So when you choose us to deal with your case you will have the peace of mind of knowing that your case is in safe hands.

Our team of specialist personal injury lawyers have many years of dedicated experience between them and you can rely on us to take away the stress of pursuing a legal action. We will press your opponent for an admission of fault, calculate your financial losses, prepare witness statements and make sure that you have access to the best medical experts to support your case. We will do everything we can to ensure you recover the compensation you deserve.

Our experience

We have dealt with thousands of accident claims, recovering many millions of pounds in compensation along the way. This means there aren’t many legal problems that we won’t have encountered before and found a solution to.

The aggressive, ‘bully boy’ tactics used by some insurance companies will not deflect us. Our job is to ensure that our clients get the maximum compensation they are entitled to and that is exactly what we promise to do.

Why we are different

We are a firm of solicitors – unlike many of the unregulated accident claims companies you see advertising.

We are big enough to provide a specialist service, but small enough to care. Unlike the mega-large ‘factory firms’, we look after our clients’ individual needs.

We work on a No Win – No Fee basis. Quite simply if we do not win the case, we won’t be paid a penny. Our clients therefore know that if they lose they won’t end up facing a legal bill. And it gives us an obvious incentive to make every effort to win your case.

We will pay any expenses such as the cost of a medical report or court fees. It is not unusual for these fees to run into hundreds, if not thousands of pounds, so that is one less thing for you to worry about.
