We Support Access to Justice

George Osborne’s Autumn Statement delivered a surprise for accident victims and their representatives. He announced an increase in the Small Claims Limit for damages for pain suffering and loss of amenity from £1000 to £5000 for all claims. There would be no compensation whatsoever for “minor soft tissue injuries”. As the vast majority of all accidents attract damages for pain suffering and loss of amenity below £5000, victims will lose and insurers will cash in. The consequences for clients are…

We’re in the Derby Telegraph

The Derby Telegraph has this week published an excellent feature on our work in the field of asbestos-related disease and, in particular, the background and experience of our very own John Das. John set up the law firm from home in 2007, and soon started securing significant sums of compensation for victims of asbestos-related diseases and their families. Since then, the team has grown and can now be found at their purpose-built premises in Derby, but still offer that same…

Reform gives insurers £1bn

John Das has written to the Derby Telegraph about the government’s disastrous plans to limit access to justice in personal injury cases. Since John’s letter, the government has changed its plans slightly, but is still proposing to significantly reduce the amount of compensation payable for ‘whiplash’ injuries and to massively increase the small claims limit in road traffic accident cases, along with a considerable increase in the small claims limit for all other types of personal injury case. This will…

How to transfer your injury claim

One of the questions I am frequently asked is whether it is possible to transfer an existing personal injury claim from the current Solicitors to us.

Their questions are usually can…
