“Our team like to use plain English and we know that the starting point for many is to clarify what ‘negligence’ means in the legal context: Negligence is a basic principle of English Law where somebody owes you a responsibility to take reasonable care to avoid causing you an injury.”

Do you really need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

If you have an accident that’s not your fault, the person or business who negligently caused the injury is legally liable. This liability means that they must pay financial compensation. However, you’ll need a Personal Injury lawyer or Accident Claims solicitor to do this.

The team here at Nash & Co Solicitors will ensure that if an injury to you was not your fault, you will be able to take fast legal action to receive compensation for the injury. You should also be able to recover costs associated with lost income and medical treatment. What’s more, we’ll do our best to secure you some interim payments too.

Accident Claims - Professional Handshake - Nash & Co Solicitors

We’ve all seen the big national TV advertising campaigns by Personal Injury lawyers. These ads claim they’ll be able to secure you huge pay outs for your injuries. What you probably don’t know about these firms, is that the person responsible for the day-to-day handling of your claim may have very little or no legal experience or legal qualification. Often, it’s impossible to speak to the same person twice.

That’s not how we work here at Nash & Co Solicitors. We have fully qualified Accident Claims lawyers with a wealth of experience and you’ll always be able to speak to your own lawyer whenever you need to.
