Personal Injury Claims

If you have suffered a personal injury due to someone else’s negligence you may be able to make a personal injury claim.

At Clodes we take on a range of Personal Injury cases including but not limited to the following:

  • Accidents and Injuries at Work
  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Accidents in Public Places, Shops, Supermarkets and Carparks
  • Cycling Accidents
  • Sexual Abuse and Physical Abuse

Is there a time limit to bringing a claim?

In most cases, claims need to be brought within three years from the date of the negligent act or from the date when you first realise that you have suffered a serious injury. In fatal cases, it is three years from the date of death.

How long will my claim take?

By their very nature personal injury claims can take a number of months or even years to conclude. This is due to the volume of evidence we may need to obtain. We can give you an idea of the likely timescale of your case once we have further information about your particular claim.

Funding your case

We know that many people worry they will be saddled with a large legal bill should they bring a personal injury claim. At Clodes we will carry out an initial assessment of your case and inform you whether we can take the case on a no win no fee basis within 2 weeks of receiving all requested information from you.  

If we are able to offer you a no win no fee agreement and you win you may have to pay a success fee although we will discuss whether or not you will be asked to pay a success fee at the start and before you enter into the agreement with us.

In some cases we will advise you to take out after the event insurance and we will be able to advise on that before we start acting.

We do not operate call centres or deal with referral companies.

If you wish for us to consider your claim or wish for further information in relation to our no win no fee agreements please contact us today.

What is an Inheritance Act Claim?

In short it is an application made (Pursuant to the Inheritance Act) by a person seeking to be either a beneficiary of a deceased’s estate or a larger beneficiary. It is not a challenge to the validity of the deceased’s will not is it a claim against the estate. It should be viewed as redistribution of the estate between the beneficiaries of the estate under the existing Will or rules of intestacy and the applicant.

An application can be made for various reasons however the most commons scenarios are where insufficient provision has been made for a disabled person or where an unmarried couple have no valid will and the rules of intestacy make no provision for the surging partner.
