Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury

Personal Injury

Our personal injury lawyers are committed to offering a personalised service, tailored to the individual. We are accessible and approachable. When you contact Bindmans, you will get through to one of our specialist team; we do not rely on call centres to take your details.  

Bindmans LLP is a ‘market leader with an increasing profile’ and is ‘very highly rated in this area’. The team is described as ‘thorough and balanced’ and ‘a breath of fresh air to work with’: the lawyers ‘involve their clients in each stage of the legal process and ensure that the claimant is able to become an empowered participant’.

Legal 500

Over the years our personal injury solicitors have obtained millions of pounds in compensation for our injured clients. However, we know that financial compensation is only part of the picture. At Bindmans, we pride ourselves on offering a holistic service, which emphasises the need for rehabilitation to start as early as possible.

Recent personal injury claims cases include obtaining significant awards of compensation for:

  • Brain and spinal injuries following motorbike and other road traffic accidents
  • Orthopaedic, head and brain injuries following accidents at work, whether from falling from a height or from defective machinery or unsafe systems of work
  • The families of people dying as a result of road traffic or workplace accidents

While ensuring that you are properly compensated for your injuries is central to what we do, our personal injury lawyers also recognise the importance of getting you the right kind of rehabilitation as early as possible. See our rehabilitation and interim payment page for information about how we can help support you.

Bringing your claim can be expensive and Legal Aid is no longer available for personal injury cases. There are different ways of funding a claim, depending on the type of case and your financial situation. We will discuss these funding methods with you in detail to work out the best one for you. Please see our funding page for more detail.
