Personal Injury & Medical Negligence
Personal injuries and the consequences of medical negligence can be life changing. They can leave a victim unable to return to their usual employment, in significant pain and with financial worries. In the most extreme cases, personal injuries can leave a victim with life threatening conditions, including significant physical and mental impairment.
So the ethos of our highly regarded personal injury team is simple; to ensure the victims are not overlooked and to use the law to make a practical difference to their lives. We believe everyone would wish for this on behalf of their own family and friends, ourselves included.
We are not “ambulance chasers” or “claim handlers” from an anonymous call centre many miles away. We are your local trusted highly experienced personal injury lawyers on your doorstep. We are here not just to secure a settlement, but a settlement that best fits your circumstances. Our team will leave no stone unturned in their thorough conduct of your case, instructing leading experts when required.
Led by partner Julie Bennett, the department has extensive experience of cases worth from £1000 to in excess of £3 million, and having dealt with cases in the House of Lords, now the Supreme Court.
The team have particular expertise in brain injury, industrial diseases and medical negligence. In addition, a full range of personal injury work is undertaken to include accidents at work, tripping and slipping claims, road traffic claims and holiday claims.
The quality of the work has been recognised with EDS being the first law firm in the local area to be accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers, and Richard Holt having previously been appointed to serve on its national executive committee.
We will talk to you entirely free of charge at the first meeting to give you all the information you need and establish whether you have a viable claim. We work locally, nationally and internationally where required.
We also boast a Solicitor with 20 years experience specialising in medical negligence.
