Personal Injury claims
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault you may be entitled to claim compensation. Every year over 3 million people are injured in accidents of one type or another from minor cuts and bruises to permanent catastrophic injuries.

4. We care
Our clients matter to us. We don’t treat accident victims as numbers on a conveyor belt of claims.
How much will it cost?
Wherever possible we work on a No win – no fee basis. This means you don’t have to pay legal fees as we usually recover all our fees from the other side’s insurers. Alternatively you may have legal expenses cover in which case we will ask your legal expenses insurers to cover our fees for acting for you.
* In very serious cases we may require you to contribute towards expenses.
What will happen to my claim?
We will obtain all the evidence needed, assess the strength of your claim, conduct negotiations and, if required, issue court proceedings. We will organise and send you for a medical and calculate all your losses and expenses due to the accident. This will include damaged belongings and any loss of earnings, along with physical and mental pain and distress. We will keep you up to date with progress. Our aim is to work with you throughout your case.
How long will it take?
Due to the many different circumstances found in accident claims, it is difficult to provide an estimate without specific details. At Ellis-Fermor & Negus we appreciate that no one wants a drawn out and protracted affair but at the same time, unlike some claims handling companies, we appreciate that injuries can take time to heal. Sometimes that means checking you have fully recovered before we agree any compensation settlement on your behalf. With this in mind, you can be confident that we will work hard to achieve an outcome you are happy with, as quickly as possible.
