Personal Injury & Accidents
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault within the last three years, our personal injury team can help you claim compensation. Specialist advice is essential to recover damages due and resolve personal injury claims in a manner that minimises distress.
We understand personal injury law and have an enviable track record of successfully winning compensation for clients who engage us.
Our personal injury and accidents team is led by Michael Pace, a former police officer who regularly speaks and lectures on personal injury matters. We understand not only how personal injury law works, but the support our clients need.
Bringing a Personal Injury Claim
In order to bring a personal injury claim, you must be able to demonstrate that another party is at fault for your injuries. This may sound daunting, but the personal injury team at Andrew & Co Solicitors know how to prove your case.
Our experience enables us to deliver efficient, reliable advice and the peace of mind that your claim is being professionally handled.
We are 100% honest with potential claimants – if we know your claim is not robust enough to obtain a settlement, we will let you know upfront.
What Does a Personal Injury Claim Entail?
Our firm supports and complies with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) Charter, which is a code of best practice for cases involving personal injury claims. We provide guidance, advice and representation for a wide range of clients. We always attempt to settle through negotiation and mediation, but where required, we will represent you robustly and competently at related inquests or inquiries and at court.
Personal injury claims arise from an increasing number of causes but commonly involve:
• Accidents in the workplace
• Accidents in public areas
• Sporting injuries
• Injuries caused by defective products
• Road accidents (involving drivers, cyclists or pedestrians)
• Industrial diseases (including asbestos claims)
• Criminal injury cases
