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.

What our clients say

"Exceptional"

Kim at Boyes Turner was recommended to me after I had received ineffective service from another company. From the outset, Kim has been professional, reassuring and supportive. I have always had faith in her ability to get the best outcome, not only financially, but also in helping my rehabilitation from a traumatic brain injury. She is friendly and empathetic, with unquestionable professional integrity. She was quick to grasp the important issues in my case, was meticulous in her investigating the details and analysing them, realistic in what the outcomes were likely to be and achieved a successful outcome.

I would not hesitate in recommending her and Boyes Turner.

"Amazing people"

Almost 5 years ago my sons suffered a life changing brain injury accident. A new life for everyone, so many unknowns so many difficult decisions. I met Claire and the team shortly after the accident. So many questions answered but more than that, amazing lovely people. Claire has been guiding me and the family throughout this ordeal with such compassion, there every time I needed her we couldn’t of asked for a nicer person. I have met many others with in Boyes Turner and all have been genuine lovely people, I’m now working with Ruth and Lindsay from the court of protection. Again, I can't say enough about them amazing lovely people. They truly do won't the best for my son and they did and continue to do so.

"Personal Injury Claim"

Claire is exceptionally knowledgeable in the personal injury legal domain, especially in the specific area of my injury. From our very first conversation, she was clear in explaining the potential different routes that the process could take and provided me with expectations of what I could expect along the journey.

She ensured that all bases were covered, organising meetings, discussions and necessary specialist appointments, in order to bring together the case and take it forward. Claire was then able to use her extensive pool of contacts, to appoint an "area leading" barrister, to represent me.

Overall, I was very pleased with appointing Claire and Boyes Turner to act as my solicitor for the legal claim that I pursued. Thank you for all of your support.

"Boyes turner workplace injury claim"

I approached Claire Roantree of Boyes Turner in regards to making a claim about a workplace burns injury. It was something that had scarred me physically and mentally and taken a huge toll on the lives of me and my family. Claire wasted no time in finding out what happened and made sure I was treated by known experts and quickly finding an answer to my burns scarring and how I could be treated to help manage my pain. Claire also helped me by appointing a psychiatrist to understand my situation and help me cope with post traumatic stress disorder. As well as taking as much stress of the claim away, she was thorough in every situation, making sure I had the best possible claim, and handled it all expertly, I am so very grateful to her and her team. They have helped guide my life back into a positive direction and I can't thank her enough!
