Personal Injury & Medical Negligence

Personal Injury Solicitor Bedfordshire & Luton

Every year in Britain more than three million people are injured in some type of accident. These accidents happen in workplaces, homes, on the road, in shopping centres, in public parks, and in buildings and offices. In addition there may be injuries or illnesses due to medical negligence and industrial diseases.

The most common causes of these injuries are as follows:

  • 1. Car accidents
  • 2. Truck accidents
  • 3. Motorcycle accidents
  • 4. Pedestrian accidents
  • 5. Cycling accidents
  • 6. Slips, trips and falls
  • 7. Medical errors
  • 8. Nursing home abuse
  • 9. Medical malpractice

Life Altering Injuries

The sorts of injuries that are possible are broken limbs, facial and mouth lacerations, brain injuries, spinal injuries, burns and injuries to the internal organs. Many can be life altering with the chance of full recovery not likely even in the long term. Plastic surgery may be required, prosthetic limbs may need preparing and your house may need to be adapted. All these affects may result in severe hardship and all because you were involved in an accident that was not your fault.


In the majority of accidents, someone else is at fault and not the victim. That means that person may be entitled to personal injury compensation from the person who caused the accident.

If you have been injured in an accident and it was not your fault you should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible after the accident while the events are fresh in your mind. Fortunately, solicitors who handle this area of law are sympathetic towards your case and will do their utmost to see that you get the best compensation to cover for the financial hardship you have encountered because of your injury.

No Win No Fee Consultation & Compensation

A free consultation is usually offered and many personal injury solicitors do not ask for legal fees upfront as they offer a no win no fee service, meaning that you only pay the legal costs if your case is won. Personal injury solicitors do not waste time and will advise you as soon as they have assessed your circumstances if you are likely to win any compensation.

A personal injury solicitor knows that you are likely to be still suffering from the effects of your injury so many will work closely with you from the start of your claim right through to settlement. In most cases an out of court settlement will be reached that matches the severity of your injury. If however the insurer of the defendant won’t agree to the amount most solicitors will take the case to court and fight to ensure the requested amount is paid.

The services offered by most solicitors include :

  • 1. Free first consultation with an immediate decision on your eligibility
  • 2. A home visit to discuss your case in full and complete the necessary paperwork
  • 3. Gathering the necessary evidence to support your claim including police reports, witnesses’ statements, records of income loss, damage to your property and medical treatment.
  • 4. Arranging a medical assessment with a local doctor based on how long full recovery will take as your claim is based on the seriousness of your injuries.
  • 5. Negotiations will commence once you are satisfied with the medical assessment and your level of financial loss.
  • 6. Ensuring maximum compensation is agreed but if the insurer of the person at-fault offers less most solicitors will take the case to court.
  • 7. The personal injury solicitor will collect the settlement and at this point will deduct any legal costs.

If you, or a member of your family, have been involved in an accident and you know you were not to blame you should not wait too long before contacting a personal injury solicitor to ensure you get fully compensated for an injury and subsequent financial hardship that was not your fault.
