Personal Injury Solicitors

If you have been injured through no fault of your own or as a result of someone else’s negligence, it can have serious consequences for you and your loved ones. This is where personal injury compensation can help you to get your life back on track.

At Lyons Solicitors, we are local personal injury solicitors with a proven track record of success and are here to fight your corner. As a small Bristol firm, you can rely on our personal service, as your claim will be dealt with exclusively by experienced and qualified solicitors. We do not delegate any of the work we complete for our clients.

In addition, we have built up a wide network of professional helpers to assist you too, such as barristers, medical experts, legal insurers and rehabilitation agents, so that you can feel in control every step of the way.

Over many years we have recovered millions of pounds for claimants, ranging from severe and life changing injuries to injuries lasting only a few weeks or months.

We also have particular expertise in taking on risky cases that other firms may have rejected. We are happy to provide an independent second opinion, and where we believe your case has been mishandled, we will be happy to take over to get you the result you deserve. DON’T GIVE UP – CALL US ON 0117-950-6506 FOR A SECOND OPINION.

Whilst we will advise you on the most appropriate form of funding, we generally deal with cases on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis.

The team is headed by Duncan Shaw, a Partner in this firm, who has more than 20 years’ experience in acting for claimants locally and nationally throughout England and Wales. He is always happy to take initial instructions either over the telephone or in person and can arrange for out of hours or home visits where appropriate.

Types of personal injury claim we can help you claim compensation for

Abuse claims

Our team understand exactly how difficult it can be for victims of abuse, such as child abuse, sexual abuse or sexual assault, to approach a solicitor to discuss the details of their case and the process of pursuing abuse compensation.

At Lyons Solicitors, we are committed to making the entire process as straightforward as possible, taking robust legal action to help you access compensation that goes some way to helping you move on with the next stage in your life.

We have expertise in bringing forward claims against a number of organisations and individuals, including:

  • Care homes and institutions.
  • Religious organisations, including the Catholic Church.
  • Actions against public and private schools, including boarding schools.
  • Actions against professionals who have held a position of trust.
  • Abuse within the workplace.
  • Rape and sexual abuse within the home.
  • Date rape and Criminal Injury Compensation (CICA) claims.

Accident at work claims

Suffering a workplace injury that was not your fault can be incredibly distressing particularly if it has left you unable to work, or with long-term health issues. A workplace injury could occur for a number of reasons, including human errors, faulty equipment or outdated procedures.

Our personal injury claims solicitors in Bristol have substantial experience in helping workers to claim compensation, including care workers, nurses, delivery drivers, construction workers, catering staff and office employees.

Asbestos claims

Living with the consequences of an asbestos-related disease, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and pleural thickening, can be devastating, both for sufferers and their families.

Making a successful asbestos compensation claim can make a real difference to anyone living with an asbestos-related disease, as it can be used to help pay for medical care, replace lost income, and cover any other related costs.

Car and bike accident claims

Whether you were a driver or passenger or were hit by a vehicle as a pedestrian, you may be in a position to claim road traffic accident compensation.

Our car and bike accident claims solicitors in Bristol have substantial experience and expertise in these types of claims and can work alongside you to carefully review the details of your case, the effect on your life and the level of compensation you may be able to claim.

Medical Negligence claims

Suffering from a case of medical negligence can be particularly difficult to deal with. We are all entitled to receive a certain standard of care when receiving medical treatment, and when that care fails, resulting in an injury or the worsening of an existing condition, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Our medical negligence solicitors in Bristol believe that anyone affected by a medical accident has a right to a straightforward and appropriate explanation and compensation at a fair and just level.

Serious injury claims

There are a number of potential circumstances where a serious injury can arise, but regardless of the circumstances, if it was caused by someone else’s negligence, it is essential to seek immediate legal advice.

We can work with you or a loved one who has suffered a serious injury to establish what the circumstances of the case are, what you need to do to make a claim and what steps need to be taken on your behalf. In the most extreme cases, we will arrange for a specialist case manager to work alongside you and your family.

Spinal injury claims

Given how serious spinal injuries are, the physical and mental effects can be devastating, especially if it is a long-term injury. These types of injuries are life-changing, and even where full recovery may be possible, it will still take years of specialist care and support to come close to reaching that stage.

Our personal injury solicitors in Bristol will do everything we can to support you with the process of claiming compensation for a spinal injury, including putting you in touch with rehabilitation experts and arranging for a dedicated case manager to help you with your specialist equipment and day-to-day requirements.

Trip and slip claims

A trip or slip can happen at any time and, in many cases, could be the fault of someone else. It may be because of insufficient lighting, slippery floor surfaces or uneven steps. No matter the cause, the potential effects can be devastating.

Our personal injury solicitors have previously claimed compensation for these types of injuries and many more, ensuring that our clients are able to access the compensation they deserve following a slip or trip.

Whiplash injury claims

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, you may have also suffered ‘whiplash’ injuries.

In the worst-case scenarios, these can be very painful and long-lasting; we can help you access your potential claim and arrange early medical assistance to support your recovery.

Our personal injury claims fees

We offer No Win, No Fee personal injury claims funding. This means that if you win your claim, you will recover your compensation, subject to any possible deductions that we will discuss with you.

If you lose your claim, you will almost certainly have no fees to pay, meaning there is no financial risk in making a personal injury compensation claim.
