Services for You

Personal Injury Claims

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 solicitors who will use their expertise to maximise your compensation settlements.

We know the areas of loss suffered by victims may not always be spotted by less specialised lawyers, and we work with medical experts, as well as barristers, who are leaders in their field.

With membership of the Law Society Personal Injury Panel, Headway - the brain injury association’s Personal Injury Solicitors List, and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers Corporate Accreditation, we offer highly specialised and experienced teams.

Our team is also included on the Spinal Injuries Association’s (SIA) approved list of personal injury solicitors.

Particularly experienced in acting for clients with spinal and cerebral injuries. Also skilled in handling military cases and accidents abroad.'

Further sources report: "They know what they are doing and they work very hard to achieve it."

We are based in Shropshire and Herefordshire, with offices in Shrewsbury, Bromyard, Hereford, Ludlow, Oswestry and Telford, but our experts can visit you at home anywhere in England or Wales, subject to an initial telephone brief on your claim.

You can drop into our offices during working hours. No appointment is needed, just call in. It won't take long and could be a very wise investment of your time. Whilst we cannot guarantee you will see a legal advisor on the day, you will be able to speak with a member of the team who will record some key information so that a lawyer can discuss your matter further with you. Most of our offices have disabled access and convenient parking.
