Personal Injury Law

We have always had a strong presence in personal injury law in the North Staffordshire area and we are now taking cases from Shropshire, Cheshire and from Derbyshire as our reputation spreads across the North Midlands.

All our cases are handled personally by our specialist solicitor Stephen Brookes who is an Assessor of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme and he has been a panel member of the scheme since 1996.

  • No win, no fee.

    If the case succeeds, there will be a number of charges involved. If the case fails, we charge nothing.

  • Free initial case review.

    We offer an initial consultation in personal injury claims, on a no obligation basis.

  • Taking over cases.

    We are frequently approached to act in place of a client's former solicitors.

  • Cutting a layer of fees.

    You don't need a claims manager. Come to us directly and cut out extra administration and cost.

  • Compensation levels.

    A number of payments may be deducted from the compensation in the event of success.

  • Recommendations.

    Over 80% of our work is from former clients or recommendations made by a former client.

Setting the Standard

We were one of the first firms in the geographical area to be granted a legal aid franchise for personal injury work in 1994. A franchise amounted to a badge of excellence and we have adhered to those high standards since then, even though legal aid is really no longer available for almost all personal injury claims.

Benefits of using our services:

  • We are a member of the Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme (or Personal Injury Panel) of the Law Society.
  • We have a successful track record in winning claims.
  • We do not engage in distasteful practices such as ambulance chasing, or “cold-calling” for business; a successful specialist legal practice does not need to accost you in the street or call at your home to pressurise you into signing up with an inexperienced and unregulated “claims manager”.
  • We advise about all possible funding methods.
  • There is no requirement to purchase insurance or sign up to anything before seeing a solicitor.
  • Advice is provided directly by a consultant-level solicitor – not by middlemen putting you in contact with their “panel solicitors”.
  • We can offer home visits in appropriate cases.
  • We offer information about prospects of success, the value of the claim, time to conclude, costs involved and funding.
  • We have an effective complaints procedure.
