Personal injury and accident claims

Being involved in an accident is always distressing so you need to be sure that your compensation claim is handled properly by a specialist who has obtained a kite mark for expertise and competence.

PTP has that kite mark as an office Accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

We are accredited as specialists by the Law Society in the field of Personal Injury Law and are members of the Accident Line (administered by the Law Society). We are also an accredited firm of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers.

  • Accident to a child

What to do first

Just call us to arrange a meeting or fill in the online enquiry form. We offer a free initial consultation, generally lasting half an hour, without any obligation. We will tell you there and then if we think you have a good case and whether or not we can help you. We will see you at our office in Hammersmith (opposite the Library) within 48 hours of your call to make an appointment, or we may be able to visit you at home or in hospital if you cannot travel.

What do personal injury claims cost?

If you have a good case we can offer you a conditional fee agreement so that your claim will not cost you anything if you lose. This is sometimes known as a “no-win, no-fee” arrangement.

How much compensation can I expect to recover?

As soon as liability for the injury is established or if your opponent admits that they are liable to you, we obtain a medical report from an independent doctor describing the nature of your injuries and how they affect your ability to lead a normal life. Your claim is then valued by comparison with the amounts awarded by the courts to people with very similar injuries. We will be able to give you some idea of this at the first consultation before you decide whether to pursue the claim.

You can also claim reasonable financial losses and expenses which result from your injuries. We will work with you to draw up a calculation of these losses.
