Making a personal injury claim will help ease yours and your family’s financial burden which is especially important in cases involving serious or life changing injuries such a brain or spinal injury, loss of limb or severe orthopaedic injury, where long term care and assistance, ongoing therapy and treatment, aids and equipment or adapted vehicle and housing may be required.

Why choose Boyes Turner?

We have represented accident victims for well over 30 years and have a dedicated personal injury team who have a wealth of experience and expertise in dealing with complex or high value cases.

Whether you have an accident at work or in a public place, or whether you are involved in a road accident as a motorist, motorcyclist, cyclist or pedestrian, we can help you with your claim for compensation for your injuries and any financial losses or expenses you experience now and in the future. 

Joined up, comprehensive representation from a dedicated solicitor

We have acted in a number of high profile cases involving those injured in the Paddington rail crash, the Ufton Nervet rail crash and the sofa dermatitis group litigation claims.

Many of our clients suffer injuries which affect their ability to work, engage in social or domestic activities and hobbies and impact on their relationship with their loved ones. 

We offer a package of specialist legal support and expertise to help you with your personal injury and ongoing rehabilitation needs, and advise you in other areas relevant to your needs such as employment, education, housing, education, wills and probate and court of protection.

What is involved in making a claim?

We will take a statement from you and any witnesses regarding the circumstances of your accident and gather evidence such as police reports, health and safety reports and accident reports at work or in a public place.  If necessary, we will obtain expert evidence relating to your accident such as engineering evidence. 

This will help us to advise you whether you have a claim against your opponent, and if so, we will gather your medical records and instruct appropriate medical experts to advise on how your injuries were caused and the nature and extent of your injuries.

We will gather details of your financial losses from you and advise you on the value of your claim.  We may discuss the possibility of trying to settle your claim by way of negotiation.  The majority of cases are settled by negotiation.  Very few ever get to trial.  Where we do end up going to Court, each step of the process will be fully explained to you beforehand and we will continue to support and advise you throughout. 

How long will my claim take?

Every claim is different, but on average our serious injury claims are concluded within 2-3 years of instruction depending on whether your opponent admits liability and/or the severity and complexity of your injury and recovery.  In serious injury cases involving children (usually brain or spinal cord injury), it can take many years to reach a stage where the long term medical outcome is known.

How much will it cost to bring a claim?

An initial interview is always provided free of charge.  In serious injury cases, we often visit our clients in hospital or at their home if they are unable to get to our offices.  At the meeting we will discuss how to fund the claim.  We have a number of funding options available, all of which ensure you will have nothing to pay if your case is unsuccessful.  In the majority of cases, we can act under a Conditional Fee Agreement (“no win no fee”).

When do I need to make a claim?

In personal injury claims you have 3 years from the date of accident or injury (or date of knowledge that the accident caused the injury), within which to issue court proceedings, unless you are a child or a person lacking mental capacity.  In the case of a child, the 3 year limitation period starts to run on your 18th birthday and proceedings must be issued by your 21st birthday.  In the case of a person lacking mental capacity as a result of their accident, the 3 year limitation period starts to run when their mental incapacity ceases.

However, there are some circumstances where exceptions can be made, so please do contact us so that we can advise you appropriately.

"Thanks for everything"

“Thanks for everything. It’s been very nice to be able to put it all behind us and try to move forward.  I cannot thank you and Boyes Turner for all you have done for me. It goes without saying I would always recommend Boyes Turner. I couldn’t have done it without your support.”

"You got us the best outcome and I can’t thank you enough"

 Thank you for all your hard work on behalf of myself and my family. You were recommended to us by a close friend back in 2017 and I will certainly recommend you again. You’ve been amazing and very reassuring considering how complicated I made things at times. It’s been one of the hardest times of my life but I was glad I had you on the end of the phone. It’s a surreal feeling now it’s all over but very relieved you got us the best outcome and I can’t thank you enough.

"Extremely grateful for her professionalism and attention to detail. "

Through my dealings with Claire as my representative in a personal injury claim, I have been extremely grateful for her professionalism and attention to detail. 

I believe going above and beyond to help accommodate my needs and explain everything in a way that I could understand. Working around timing for video calls and zoom meetings with myself and my mum, often on weekends and evenings. We always knew she was just a phone call away to answer any questions we had and if she didn’t have the answer then it would be found out for us. Once the claim was settled, she has still offered her support and provided contacts to do with my injury fund and further surgery I need.

"Great support throughout a very emotional and difficult period"

Claire was very much the lynchpin in achieving settlement of a complex case. From the outset Claire ensured steps were taken to manage both rehabilitation and legal/case requirements in the correct sequence; this included the early appointment of a case manager.

In addition Claire has been a great support throughout a very emotional and difficult period in our lives.

"I cannot recommend them highly enough"

After being involved in a Road Accident I enlisted the services of Boyes Turner to help settle our compensation claim for damages and ongoing injuries that I incurred as a result. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Their ongoing support throughout an extremely stressful ordeal was second to none. I suffered multiple injuries and they organised all my ongoing medical needs both physically and mentally, to help aid my recovery and rehabilitation. They managed my case with the utmost professionalism, concluding it satisfactorily so that I can move forward with my life and recovery. Thank you to Claire and her team for their amazing ongoing support and work with handling my case, in a time of great stress and uncertainty. Thank you so much for all you have done for me and my family.
