Blandford injury claims – local specialists
It is crucial that your personal injury compensation claim is run by specialists. ‘How will I know if my solicitor is a specialist?’ you may ask.
One good indicator is their membership of specialist legal panels. Our team includes a member of the leading specialist compensation claim solicitors panel: The Law Society Personal Injury panel.
By contrast, there are no solicitors in Blandford with membership of any of this panels, making our solicitors the smart choice.
Why choose us for your personal injury claim?
Here are just 5 reasons:

◊ No win no fee: you don’t need to worry about how you will pay legal fees because we can offer no win no fee agreements. A no win no fee agreement does just what it says on the tin. In principle, if your solicitor or law firm doesn’t win your case, then you don’t pay any legal fees.

Thinking of making an accident claim – don’t delay
It is important that you call our personal injury team as soon as possible. Strict limits apply to all personal injury claims and if you delay too long, you could miss your chance to claim.
In general terms, your accident must have happened within the last 3 years (although there are a small number of exceptions to this rule). And we strongly recommend that you get specialist legal advice about your possible injury claim as soon as possible. The sooner your solicitor starts to collect evidence to support your claim the better. Memories fade and if you delay, the opportunity to gather certain evidence (such as getting photographs of the scene of your accident at the time) may be lost.
Am I entitled to compensation?
That depends on your personal circumstances and the accident or injury you suffered. You will need to establish that you have suffered some loss – an injury or financial loss. And what’s more, your injuries must have been caused by a breach of the duty of care owed by a 3rd party or by their negligence – i.e. the accident was their fault, not yours.
And most important of all, we need to provide evidence to support your claim – which is why need to take expert legal advice as soon as possible after the accident.
Is legal aid available for accident compensation claims?
No. Legal aid was withdrawn for personal injury and accident compensation claims all the way back in 2000.
More recently it was also withdrawn from most medical negligence cases, although in very limited circumstances, legal aid can be granted for certain birth injury claims.
But you don’t need to worry about paying for your legal costs – we run injury compensation and medical negligence cases using no win no fee agreements – so you can concentrate on getting better.
