Personal Injury

Our experienced lawyers offer the very best in personal injury and can be trusted in striving to get the best outcome for all our clients.

We handle a wide range of claims on behalf of individuals suffering from personal injury or illness, including claims against hospitals, employers, other motorists, government bodies, shops, supermarkets and schools to name but a few.

At Setfords we understand that personal injury and illness can often be life changing. If you have suffered personal injury or illness because of someone else you may need support including rehabilitation, immediate and ongoing medical care and sometimes counselling. As result of your injury or illness you may have also lost your job or suffered from loss of earnings. You could therefore be entitled to significant compensation. Where possible, you will receive 100% of the compensation awarded and your claim will be pursued at no cost to you.

We offer specialist advice that consistently exceeds our client’ expectations in terms of quality, price and turnaround time. We will always fight to get you the best compensation possible for your personal injury claim, in the shortest period of time, with the least amount of stress and fuss possible.

We can also offer:

  • Advice and assistance with benefits claims and employment whilst you are out of work.
  • Assistance with medical treatment claims/rehabilitation whilst you are out of work by encouraging your opponent to enable this in accordance with the court procedural.
  • Assistance with applications for money on account if liability has been admitted.

Every case, no matter how small, is dealt with by a qualified specialist solicitor. Our aim is to provide a bespoke, expert service to every client. We do not have large banks of unqualified junior staff. You will not be treated as just a number. We value and look after our clients and you will have direct one to one contact with our expert solicitors.

We offer a free initial advice service for all types of personal injury claim. We will assess the merits of your case and advise you if we are able to take your case on a no win no fee basis.

If we are able to do so then we will provide you with a funding arrangement that guarantees you pay nothing unless you win your case. We will discuss the best funding options for you and give you clear and practical advice before you commit to anything.
