We are rated as one of the top firms in the UK and believe in speaking to our clients in jargon-free language and ensuring you're speaking to a highly qualified lawyer right from the outset

Our Personal Injury team recently settled a claim on behalf of a client who suffered an accident at work who was using a petrol saw to cut metal pipes, when the saw suddenly flew up and cut his face.

Our client ended up with a deep laceration between his mouth and his chin, which left him with a very visible and unsightly scar. The insurance company admitted liability for his claim on the basis that he had not been provided with the proper protective equipment.

Julia Prior, Associate Solicitor in our Personal Injury team, was able to obtain funding for him to have scar revision surgery privately. This significantly improved the appearance of the scar, and which would not have been available to him on the NHS. He has now received a settlement for the permanent scarring that he does still have, plus reimbursement of his loss of earnings for the time that he had to take off of work for hospital appointments.
