Shoosmiths' expert personal injury lawyers are experienced across a wide range of personal injury claims. We have helped clients with injury claims for road traffic accidents, accidents at work and serious spinal cord and brain injuries to get the rehabilitation and financial support they deserve so that they can move on in life.
Our clients are always at the centre of everything we do, so your needs are our sole priority. Our dedicated team of personal injury lawyers aim to get the best possible results for you and your loved ones.
Our team members are highly experienced in handling any sort of personal injury claim, so no matter what your injury or its immediate cause, if the accident was not your fault we can help. We will support and advise you and your family throughout your claim and well beyond if required.
We can arrange meetings at your convenience over the phone, at one of our locations or, when needed, at your home, in hospital or any other location you would prefer. We'll explain what's involved in plain English and answer any questions you may have.
Because we are part of a large and highly regarded UK law firm which has been helping people for over 165 years, We can also draw on additional in-house expertise if we need it.
If you've suffered any kind of serious injury, getting better and back to 'normal' is what matters most. That’s why we think it important to ensure that your immediate needs are met, especially if you are unable to work or require access to specialist rehabilitation services.
We can usually get any treatment agreed and funded straight away even before the other side has admitted blame and the legal process involved in your claim has begun. Therefore, we assess your medical needs as well as negotiating the best possible financial award we can achieve on your behalf.
Improving your quality of life will be our first priority. We have established partnerships with leading treatment and rehabilitation providers as well as national charities who can give you the immediate medical, material and moral support you require.
We can also call upon our colleagues in other teams who can help you manage your financial affairs particularly if you have received compensation following your injury. You will probably just want to get on with your life however you may want to consider setting up a personal injury trust to protect your award, or you may need advice on rewriting your will to reflect your specific circumstances. In the future, should you require another person to make decisions on your behalf, a lasting power of attorney would be an important tool.
