We are specialist personal injury lawyers who help individuals and families claim the compensation they deserve. We specialise in serious injury claims for children and adults who have suffered severe and life-changing personal injuries, offering expert guidance throughout each step of the process.
A personal injury is an injury to the body that is a direct result of another’s negligence. Sometimes the physical injury or the circumstances in which that injury was suffered also leads to a psychological injury and PTSD. When someone is injured as a result of another person or organisation’s breach of their duty of care (negligence), the injured person may be entitled to claim compensation for their injury and its financial consequences.
The claim for compensation is made against the person or organisation that was responsible for the injury and is usually met by their insurer. The legal process of claiming compensation for injuries that are caused by negligence is known as a personal injury 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”).
We offer initial advice to new clients free of charge. In serious injury cases, we often visit our clients in the hospital or at their home if they are unable to get to our offices. At the meeting, we will discuss next steps and your funding options.

£1million compensation in an accident abroad RTA claim for a man who suffered head and facial injuries when he was hit by a lorry whilst standing on the hard shoulder awaiting roadside assistance in France. His family were not involved in the accident but under French law we were able to secure additional settlements for them for the impact that our client’s injury had on the family.
£1million settlement in a fatal accident claim for the widow of a man who was killed when the intoxicated defendant driver’s HGV veered onto the hard shoulder fatally injuring him and another man. The HGV driver was convicted of causing death by dangerous driving whilst over the legal limit for drugs including heroine and crack cocaine and was sent to prison.
Substantial compensation settlement in a fatal RTA claim for the bereaved husband and young child of a pregnant woman whose car was hit from behind by a driver speeding at over 100mph. The young woman and her unborn baby were both killed in the accident. At the inquest, we secured a verdict of unlawful killing which, if the defendant driver had survived, would have amounted to gross negligence manslaughter.
£3 million CICA payment for a ‘shaken baby’ who suffered a brain injury, blindness, learning disability and behavioural problems. The Official Solicitor instructed us to take over the five-year-old boy’s existing claim. We secured interim payments to appoint a case manager who helped the boy through the transition from full-time education at a specialist school to living in a local authority assisted home. The final compensation payment will pay for him to live in brain injury specialist accommodation for the rest of his life, with ongoing support from his case manager and our Court of Protection deputyship team.
£300,000 settlement in an accident at work claim for a labourer who suffered a moderate head injury when he was hit on the head by a co-worker’s pickaxe whilst working on the road.

£650,000 settlement in a difficult RTA brain injury claim for a teenager who was hit by a car whilst rollerblading across a poorly lit dual carriageway. We overcame unsupportive witness evidence and the driver’s insurer’s strong defence and secured a settlement which guaranteed substantial compensation for our client but reflected his ‘contributory negligence’ in failing to check that the road was clear before crossing. Interim payments paid for the boy to have in-patient rehabilitation. Final settlement provided our client with £650,000, representing 40% of a full valuation of £1.6 million.
Judgment at trial and £25,000 interim payment in an ongoing claim for a child who was hit by the defendant's car when she ran out into the road at a pedestrian crossing.

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.
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.
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!
Excellent service from Claire and her team at all times. We were kept up to date at each stage of our claim. The outcome was much better than we expected and we would not hesitate to recommend Boyes Turner to family and friends.
Kim handled my personal injury claim after a car accident with immeasurable expertise and compassion. Boyes Turner arranged every part of my private rehabilitation, which greatly improved the speed and quality of my recovery.
Each stage of the litigation process was dealt with efficiently and succinctly. This was then always explained without using unclear legal jargon.
On both health and financial levels, I would be in a far worse position without Kim’s invaluable input. I cannot recommend this firm enough.
