Accident and injury solicitors Taunton

Accident and injury specialists with heavyweight credentials

If you’ve been injured in an accident, you have a right to claim compensation from the negligent individual, company or organisation. However, it’s vital to find a specialist solicitor with the relevant experience. At Clarke Willmott, our serious injury solicitors are experts in handling highly complex cases; some of which have made the headlines or even led to new laws.

Other firms may use unqualified case handlers to run personal injury claims, so they won’t know all the details of your case or understand what needs to be done. At Clarke Willmott, your case will be run or overseen by one of our most senior lawyers, to ensure you always receive the best possible service and advice.

We’ll take time to understand what’s important to you and your family, and what kind of care or support might be needed, including help you arrange rehabilitation and treatment from the country’s top consultants. We can also help with other legal matters arising from your injury, such as getting back to work, or buying a new home adapted for your independence – a level of service borne out of our extensive experience and hard to find elsewhere.

Frequently asked questions

What types of claims do you deal with?

We can represent anyone who has suffered a personal injury and specialise in handling complex cases involving severe, life-changing injuries such as spinal injuries, brain damage or neurological injury, amputation – and fatal injuries.

How do I make a claim?

Start by seeking advice from one of our specialist personal injury solicitors. The initial consultation is free and will help you understand whether your claim is likely to have a positive outcome for you. If the prospects of success are too low we will tell you.

How can I pay for the expenses of my claim?

It’s important to consider how you’re going to pay your legal expenses especially as the cost of pursuing a personal injury claim can be high. However, there are funding options available that could help reduce the expense, such as an existing insurance policy covering claims of this nature or a Conditional Fee Agreement (often called ‘no win no fee’).

Before you embark on your claim, we will talk you through:

  • The potential cost of pursuing your personal injury claim.
  • What percentage of these costs you might get back.
  • What funding options are available to you.

How much compensation could I get?

Every case is different, but here are some examples of compensation awarded to our clients:

  • £6.5 million – awarded to a child who suffered brain injuries as a motorbike pillion passenger.
  • £5.5 million – awarded to a motorcyclist who suffered a very severe brain injury leading to a need for 24 hour care.
  • £500,000 – (maximum allowable by (CICA) Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority) for brain injuries following an assault.
  • £240,000 – fatal injury claim for a widow following a motorway accident which caused the tragic death of her husband.
