We represent clients who suffer accidents in public places, such as parks, schools, housing estates, swimming pools, pubs or tourist attractions.
Our clients include children, adults and also families bereaved as a result of such injuries. We specialise in representing people who have suffered very serious injuries, such as amputations, brain, spinal or complex orthopaedic injuries and pain syndromes. Our in-depth medical knowledge of these types of injuries, and experience working alongside medical experts ensures we have an in-depth understanding of what injuries our clients have suffered and the full impact they have on their lives. This allows us to efficiently process the administration associated with accidents in public places, and focus on what is most important - justice for your injury.

We are happy to have a free, initial conversation with you about the circumstances of the accident and whether you might be entitled to bring a claim before you make a decision, even if only to put your mind at rest.
