Personal injuries can occur at any time and in any place but can cause significant financial loss and extensive disruption to your home and work life. This disruption may continue long after your initial recovery and rehabilitation. If you have suffered an injury as a result of third-party negligence it is important you seek advice from a specialist personal injury lawyer to asses if you are entitled to compensation.
What can you claim for?
Our personal injury claims solicitors are experienced in handling all manner of personal injury claims. These can include claims for injuries obtained at the workplace, slips and trips that were not your fault, road traffic accidents, dog bites, injuries abroad, faulty products causing injuries and many more.
In addition to your personal injury compensation you may also be entitled to claim for any out of pocket expenses which you may have incurred. These can include the cost of loss of earnings, any medication, hospital visits and parking, additional travel expenses as a result of the injury, and even care or assistance for domestic chores if you are no longer able to carry out these daily tasks.
If you think you may be entitled to personal injury compensation, then our team of personal injury claims solicitors have a wealth of knowledge in this area and will be able to quickly determine whether you have a valid claim.
How much compensation can you receive?
Our personal injury claims specialists have seen compensation amounts ranging from £850 – £190,000 for the injury alone. This of course depends on the severity of the injury and any future problems associated with this. However, at Sarah Waddington solicitors we will always ensure we get you the maximum amount of personal injury compensation which you deserve. We will therefore also include in your personal injury claim the total of any additional expenses you may have incurred, or are still expecting to incur, as an ongoing result of the injury.
Why Should You Claim Compensation?
If you have suffered an injury that was not your fault, there are many reasons why people would decide to fight for personal injury compensation. Many look for a sense of justice as their own day to day lives may have been deeply affected by the injuries sustained. These often may have been preventable if health and safety guidelines had been followed.
Therefore, claiming compensation can help ensure that a third party is held liable for your injury and can help ensure repairs or recommendations are implemented preventing the same injuries occurring to other people in the future.
The service here from Sarah Waddington solicitors is to provide you with personal injury compensation, determined by the Judicial Studies Board, which you are entitled to for any pain and suffering you have endured.
Why use a firm of Solicitors?
The Law Society states it is important to seek proper legal representation for any claim as it is not uncommon for an insurance or claims management company to try and settle for compensation amounts lower than we would expect. We would therefore advise you to use the services of a solicitor for all types of personal injury claims. As an SRA regulated firm of Solicitors, Sarah Waddington Solicitors can fight on your behalf, against even the biggest multi-million-pound companies and their extensive legal teams.
With personal injury claims being rarely straightforward, there are often multiple parties involved ranging from medical experts to witnesses. Therefore, using an experienced law firm to represent you in such circumstances will ensure you are getting the best advice, support and desired outcome. We offer all of our personal injury services on a No-Win-No-Fee basis looking after your personal injury claim from start to finish, and even in the unlikely event that your claim is unsuccessful, you will have no costs to pay.
We will however always strive to recover the maximum possible compensation for you, your injuries and your personal circumstances.

What details will we need from you?
The following information will be used to establish if you have a valid personal injury claim and will allow our team of personal injury claims solicitors to work out how much compensation you might be entitled to. Don’t worry if you don’t have all of this information to hand when you first speak to us though, you can send this to us later.
