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

Accidents On Holiday
​Accidents At Work
Criminal Assaults
Industrial Diseases
Medical Negligence
Road Traffic Accidents
Slips, Trips Or Falls

​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 information do you need?


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 the incident happen?
• What happened?
• What injuries did you sustain?
• Who do you consider to be responsible?
• What will it cost?

Most people don’t want, or can’t afford, to pay directly themselves. That’s why at Askews, we can usually act for you on a ‘No Win No Fee basis’ meaning there is no financial risk to you.

We would also advise that you check 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/they have, then we can use this insurance cover to deal with your claim at no financial cost to you.

Remember, as the policy-holder you have the right to choose your own solicitor, not your insurance provider. We are happy to speak directly to your insurance company to sort this out for you.
