Can I Make A Personal Injury Claim?
Personal Injury applies to physical or psychological harm resulting from an accident or incident that was usually caused by someone else’s actions.
According to figures released by The Law Society, over three million people are injured in accidents each year – at home, in their cars, at work, in public places or outdoors.
There are a wide variety of personal injury cases that lead to claiming compensation, but the law is complex.
In many situations someone else or something else is to blame and the accident was not your fault. If this is the case, you have a right to claim damages. Although personal injury law is complicated, with the help and guidance of Simpkins & Co Solicitors the process of making a claim can be quite straightforward. We offer a free initial consultation and will be able to tell you if you have a justifiable claim.

What are the costs of legal advice?
In the first instance we offer a FREE initial consultation with a personal injury specialist from Simpkins & Co Solicitors. We will discuss the circumstances of your potential claim and before proceeding will advise you on your chances of winning.
Legal aid for personal injury cases in the UK is no longer available. However, if you win your case the Defendant (other side) will be liable to pay your legal fees and your compensation.
Simpkins & Co Solicitors may be able to act on a no win no fee basis, or fixed fee arrangement, plus we can advise you on whether you may have legal expenses insurance cover already in place via other means.
This will be fully explained at your FREE initial consultation.
Other funding options will also be explored and if available they will be fully explained to you.
