As expert claimant personal injury lawyers (we act only for the injured not insurers) we have a well-deserved reputation for successfully pursuing claims for our clients, to ensure not only that they recover compensation but also that they settle their claim for no less than they are entitled.

We have successfully recovered many millions of pounds for our clients, from whiplash to catastrophic head injuries.

We do not operate out of a call centre, but instead offer a friendly, personalised face-to-face service.

We regularly deal with the following:

  • Serious injury involving loss of limb, brain and spinal injuries
  • Car, motorcycle and road traffic accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Industrial disease
  • Clinical and medical negligence
  • Animal accident claims
  • Coroners’ Inquests
  • Fatal Accidents
  • Slips trips and falls

We have particular expertise in dealing with high value and complex personal injury claims, particularly those involving tetraplegic, paraplegic, spinal and brain injury.

Our team is led by William Weller, regarded as one of the best and most experienced personal injury lawyers in the South West. William is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel as well as the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers for which he is accredited as a Senior Litigator.

No Win No Fee

Experience tells us that an initial determination as to whether you have a valid claim will take between 1 and 2 hours.  As set out above there will be no charge for the assessment.

Full details of the basis upon which we will act for you are set out in the conditional fee agreement which we will ask you to sign if you choose to instruct us to pursue a claim on your behalf.

In simple terms however:-

If you lose your claim, then if you have at the outset elected to take out “After the Event” insurance provided by Accident Line Protect – we will advise and guide you in this respect – then the policy will meet any adverse costs order.

If you have no insurance and lose your claim, the court will not usually enforce any order for costs made against you, unless:-

  • The proceedings have been struck out, or
  • The claim is fundamentally dishonest, or
  • The claim includes a claim for the financial benefit of someone else.

If you lose you will not be responsible for our basic charges (but we may require you to pay our expenses and disbursements – this will be explained in detail before you choose to instruct us).

If you win your claim, you will pay us (and any Barrister instructed on your behalf and acting under a CFA with us):-

  • A success fee, amounting to the basic charges of this firm and any Barrister, inclusive of VAT, but
  • Capped at a maximum of 25% of your damages recovered (other than damages for future pecuniary loss), and
  • Any insurance premium due if you have elected to take out “after the event” insurance provided by Accident Line Protect.

If you lose you will not be responsible for our basic charges (but we may require you to pay our expenses and disbursements – this will be explained in detail before you choose to instruct us.

The No Win No Fee scheme we operate is Law Society approved which means that not only is your case then properly funded to take on the challenge of the insurance companies, but additionally you do not pay a penny in the event of your case being unsuccessful.

If you are unsure whether you may have a claim or not or are just looking for a second opinion, then call William Weller now on 01761 414646. We always provide a free initial assessment of your case and prospects of success. If you find mobility difficult, we are more than happy to come and see you either at home or at hospital.
