Personal Injury

If you’ve suffered injury, you could be entitled to compensation. You might be able to claim for injuries caused by:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Slips, trips or falls
  • Industrial diseases
  • Criminal assaults
  • Accidents on holiday

For more information or to speak to someone please call us on 01642 475252 or send us a message via our enquiry form.

So that we can help you better, be ready to answer the following questions about your accident or injury:

  • What’s your name, address and phone number?
  • When did it happen?
  • What happened?
  • What injuries did you sustain?
  • Who do you consider to be responsible?

Of course you’ll wish that your accident had never happened - everyone does. You can’t turn back the clock, but we can help you to be fairly compensated for what you’ve suffered in terms of both physical pain and suffering and any out-of-pocket expenses resulting from the accident.

What Will It Cost?

Generally, you can’t get government funding (what used to be called ‘Legal Aid’) to pay for your solicitor to help with your personal injury claim and most people don’t want (or can’t afford) to pay directly themselves.

However, at Askews, we can usually act for you on a 'no win no fee basis’ meaning there is no financial risk to you.

It’s also worth checking whether you (your spouse or member of your family living at the same address) have Legal Expenses Insurance included with a Motor or Household Insurance Policy. If you have, then Askews can use this insurance cover to deal with your claim at no cost to you. Remember, as the policy-holder YOU have the right choose your own solicitor. We can speak directly to your insurance company to sort this out for you.

Why Should I Choose Askews?

You may be worried by recent adverse publicity about claims handling companies in the media. At Askews, you can be confident that you’ll be advised by properly qualified solicitors who specialise in personal injury work.

Our solicitors are members of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers. This means that you can approach us safe in the knowledge that our solicitors are experts in their field.

We will listen very carefully to your needs and advise you fully as to your legal options, entitlement and available legal solutions to your concerns.

Whilst we will work hard to resolve your problems as quickly and sympathetically as possible sometimes it is necessary to go to Court. Rest assured that our Solicitors are experienced Court Advocates and will be there for you to represent your interest in any Court proceedings.

We know that many people’s experience of dealing with solicitors is one of frustration, lack of communication and worry. However, at Askews, we are committed to delivering a personal, friendly service to all our clients and we will keep you regularly informed about what’s going on.
