Personal Injury Solicitors Dewsbury
Have you been the victim of an accident? Or have you developed an illness or injury because of another person’s acts or failures to act? If so, you may have a legal claim for compensation. Under law, you may be entitled to money to remunerate you for any pain, suffering or loss that you have suffered as a result of someone else’s carelessness.

As a result, we know this field inside out and are best placed to act on your behalf in a local personal injury claim. We have represented many other clients in and around Dewsbury in cases stemming from accidents at work or other incidents, and know how to get you the compensation you deserve.
Bringing a personal injury claim: the requirements
The first requirement of any personal injury claim is that your loss or pain has to be attributable to someone else’s fault. Many people owe you a duty of care – including your employer, public authorities, doctors and other road users. Common types of personal injury claims are therefore road traffic accidents, accidents at work, accidents stemming from hazards in a public place, or road traffic collisions. However, personal injury cases are not confined to these categories and can cover any situation where you suffer loss because of another’s action or inaction. If in doubt, contact us today to see if you have a claim.
The second requirement is that the claim must be made within the time limits. Your injury or illness must have arisen, or been discovered, in the last three years. Our specialist lawyers can advise you whether or not your claim has been made in time, and can also make sure that you meet all of the strict deadlines that the court will require throughout the case.
The third requirement of any personal injury claim is that, as the person seeking compensation, you have to show that you are entitled to it. This means that you have to argue your case and prove any allegations. The lawyers at Personal Injury Solicitors Dewsbury are experts in doing this. They will obtain all the evidence that you need. This may involve drafting witness statements or making further investigations. In this regard, it is particularly useful to use a local firm, such as ours, as we are best placed to seek more information on your behalf.
No Win, No Fee*
Personal injury cases are just that – personal. As such, our lawyers know how important it is that you receive the maximum amount of compensation. We work on a no win no fee basis*, meaning that if you do not receive your compensation, we do not receive our fee. Even in the event that you are successful, we will never take more than one quarter of your compensation to pay our lawyers – meaning that you will be left with the vast majority of the money you deserve.
If you have been injured or live in the Dewsbury area, you may be legally entitled to financial compensation. That money is yours, so contact us today on 01924 589 664 to make your claim.
