Personal Injuries

Personal Injuries

In a busy, modern world, it is an unfortunate fact that people are often injured because others fail to take reasonable care. Injuries may arise as a result of:

  • Motor vehicle accidents;
  • Medical negligence;
  • Negligence of government authorities;
  • Dangerous or defective premises;
  • Dangerous or defective products;
  • Sporting accidents;
  • Workplace accidents; or
  • Crime.

Injuries can present themselves physically and/or psychologically. Sadly, injuries can also result in death.

People who are injured face significant challenges in coping with ongoing pain, lifestyle restrictions and financial stress. They are often unable to continue working and this, together with expenses associated with medical treatment places significant pressure on injured people, their friends and families.

In certain circumstances compensation is available to people who have been injured or to the families of those who have died. Whether or not compensation is available is a question which can only be answered by considering the facts of each individual case.

Our personal injuries team is experienced in providing assistance to people with injuries ranging from minor to catastrophic. We understand the difficulties faced by you and your family. This, coupled with our understanding of the legal system, means we are able to assist you in drafting clear and effective claims for compensation.

Additionally, we negotiate and provide advice in relation to settlement offers. We are experienced litigators believing that litigation is a last resort, but one which is necessary in certain circumstances. We provide practical, cost-effective advice to our clients at all stages of their claim.
