What do Personal Injury Solicitors do?

Personal Injury solicitors provide legal representation to people who have been injured either physically or mentally due to the negligence of an individual, company or other party.

Our experienced solicitors have specialist expertise in all areas of personal injury law. If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, we will guide you through the process of making a claim against the individual or organisation responsible for your injury.

Following any such injury, it is important to contact a personal injury solicitor as quickly as possible. Although by law, those injured in such incidents are allowed up to three years within which court proceedings must be commenced, we would always recommend commencing your claim as soon as possible so that all the necessary information can be documented as accurately as possible while your recollection of the accident remains fresh.

It is our job to assess your injury in terms of who was to blame and why. This may involve collecting evidence from a number of sources including witness statements and official reports such as from the police or independent medical professionals. Fentons has been providing legal services for over 80 years and we have pioneered the development of a national network of medical and legal experts.

Once it is clear that a person or organisation is responsible for causing your injury, it is a personal injury solicitor’s responsibility to prove that your injury was a direct and foreseeable consequence of that individual or organisation’s failure to take reasonable steps towards ensuring your safety. In short, it is our job to prove that your injury was caused by the negligence of the defendant.

Our experienced personal injury solicitors have dealt with many cases similar to yours. As such, after hearing all the relevant details of your accident, we will be able to evaluate how likely your case is to succeed and how much you may be able to claim in compensation following a successful claim.

To establish a full and proper assessment of your claim, a personal injury solicitor will need to know certain details such as on what date and whereabouts your accident took place, how exactly you suffered injury and what contact details you may have of anyone who witnessed what occurred.

Your solicitor will also need the details of your injuries as well as any diagnosis or treatment you have received to date. In addition, they may need to see any insurance policy documents you hold as well as any proof of lost earnings or other financial expenses you may have incurred as a direct result of your accident.

If your solicitor believes that your case can be won in a court of law, they will guide you through the often complicated process of filing your claim so that you can begin the first steps towards claiming the compensation you deserve.
