We all hope it won’t happen to us, but if you are the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault, or are suffering from an industrial disease, it’s vital to talk to an expert about your options.
Alternatively, if your spouse, partner or dependent has been injured or died as a result of an injury, you may be entitled to compensation. It’s an incredibly difficult time and while a legal claim might not be at the top of your priority list, we can support you through the process to see you are justly and fully compensated.
The Personal Injury team here at Lanyon Bowdler is regarded as one of the highest performing in the Midlands, but more importantly it’s made up of legal professionals with compassion and integrity.
Award-winning lawyer, Neil Lorimer, heads up a team of approachable, friendly private client solicitors who will use their expertise to maximise your compensation settlements.
