You can usually claim for personal injury compensation if it is possible to establish some fault against another party after an incident which caused you harm or suffering. According to the Law Society, over three million people in the UK are injured in accidents every year. Personal injury law can be very complicated, so it is best to get the help of a qualified solicitor if you wish to claim for a personal injury to help make the claim much more straightforward. Forbes Solicitors work on a no win, no fee basis meaning we will not charge if the case fails. If the case is successful we will claim our costs from the other party and you will only be charged a small success fee. Generally, personal injury claims must be made within three years from the date of the injury. If the accident involved a child, then the three-year rule runs from the child's 18th birthday. There can sometimes be exceptions to this rule; so, for this, it's best to speak to a personal injury solicitor.

All the way through my claim I have had matters thoroughly explained. Leonie Millard was most helpful and helped me considerably understand anything that needed to be dealt with.
I have found all the staff and the solicitors that I have seen have been very kind, thoughtful and very helpful. I cannot praise them enough and I would not go to anyone else at all.
Easy, regular and relevant communications both written and orally.
The entire process from my claim being taken was dealt with in a highly professional and more importantly timely manner.
I have used Forbes when pursuing a claim for a friend, along with every other legal matter I have been involved in, both personally and professionally. I cannot rate Forbes highly enough.

I am happy with the way things progressed, the service was professional, quick, and my solicitor Leonie Millard was very approachable and explained things well.
I approached John Myles when I was at rock bottom and felt that I had exhausted every possibility of proving my case.
The service I received far exceeded my expectations.
