WE ENSURE THAT YOU GET THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF COMPENSATION

Accidents can happen at any time and can have a huge impact on your life. When they are not your fault and you are injured, the team of personal injury lawyers at Clark Willis Law Firm LLP is dedicated to ensuring that you receive the compensation that you deserve.

We have many years' experience acting for people just like you and have been successful in claims against some of the country’s largest companies and institutions. We go the extra mile to ensure that our client’s voice is heard and our aim is to get you back on your feet as soon as possible.

How much will it cost me?

Our initial interview is always free and during this time we will assess whether you have a valid claim. We offer “NO WIN NO FEE” agreements in personal injury and medical negligence claims. In addition if you have insurance to cover the legal costs of pursuing an injury claim, we can conduct your claim with funding under the terms of your policy.

How long do I have to claim?

If you are over 18 years old you only have three years in which to pursue your personal injury or medical negligence claim. However it is far better to deal with the matter sooner rather than later: we recommend that you seek legal advice as soon as possible.

How long will my claim take?

It is very difficult to say how long any case will take as each person is different and recovers from their injuries differently. The length of time a case may take will also depend on whether the other side admits that the accident was their fault or not.

How much compensation will I get?

This is dependent on your particular circumstances. At Clark Willis Law Firm LLP each claim is dealt with individually as each case is unique. If the claim is successful you will receive damages for pain and suffering and also reimbursement for any out of pocket expenses you incurred due to the accident. These may include loss of earnings, care or physiotherapy expenses, travel and medication costs.

What shall I bring to an initial appointment?

It is often helpful if a note is made detailing as much information as possible including names, addresses and vehicle registration numbers. However this is not absolutely necessary and we can assist with site inspections, photographs and arrange for witness statements to be taken.

Why Clark Willis Law Firm LLP?

We are a local firm of solicitors and we treat each individual as exactly that – an individual. No two people will experience the same injuries or have exactly the same rehabilitation and future needs. We take time to work with you and get to know you: our clients are not just a name or number to us. We will act in your best interests, we will provide you with clear and regular updates about your case and, most importantly, we aim to make a real difference and help you live as full a life as possible following a life changing accident.

Can I bring a claim against my employer if I still work for them?

Yes. Your employer is required by law to have insurance to deal with claims for personal injury. Further, your employer is not allowed to discriminate against you for bringing a claim and, if you were to lose your job for making a claim, then you would have a case for unfair dismissal. Starting a claim will help to ensure that a similar accident does not happen again and that your employer takes health and safety seriously.

I have been injured in a road traffic accident. Do I have to submit my claim for personal injury using my car insurance company?

No. In fact, there are many reasons to choose a local firm, such as Clark Willis Law Firm LLP, instead. If you submit a claim for personal injury through your insurance company, then the handling of your claim could be passed to a firm anywhere in the country. The chances are you will never meet your solicitor. Choosing Clark Willis Law Firm LLP instead, will mean that you will be able to meet your solicitor personally, and you will have their direct contact details enabling you to have regular contact with them. We get to know our clients so that we can obtain the best possible outcome for them, as individuals.
