Personal Injury

Sometimes accidents happen and nobody is to blame. However, if it is somebody’s else’s fault you may be entitled to claim personal injury compensation.

Do you need a trusted personal injury lawyer?

Here at Watsons, we understand that every personal injury claim is different. That’s why our dedicated team of solicitors always treat each case on its own individual merit.

The personal injury claims industry is huge, and unfortunately there are many claims firms that only judge cases on prescribed factors. This may be the easiest route to take, but there is a high risk that they will not be able to get the personal injury compensation you deserve.

We take a personal approach to our clients, so we explain everything on a face-to-face basis and discuss, in detail, the amount of compensation that you are likely to receive from your claim.

The personal injury claims process varies in length from case to case, and we will not settle until we are able to negotiate the best, and most appropriate personal injury compensation for you.

If we are unable to settle, then we will take your claim to court.

We are an APIL Accredited Practice, dedicated to helping the victims of accidents or negligence get the maximum amount of personal injury compensation for the distress they have suffered.

When possible, this involves recommending physical or psychological rehabilitation to ensure that you can get back to normality in the shortest possible time.

Personal injury claims where we can assist include:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Slips and trips in the street or in public places
  • Medical negligence
  • Professional negligence
  • Catastrophic injuries and fatal accidents

Our team of specialist solicitors are able to undertake work on a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win, no fee), Legal Expense Insurance or Privately Funded basis.

Criminal injury compensation applications

Here at Watsons, we have many years’ experience in making applications to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority, so that crime victims can get the compensation they deserve.

This includes representation before the Criminal Injuries Compensation Appeals panel.
