What time’s best for you?
If you have been injured in an accident, no matter how minor, and it was not your fault, then you should consider making a claim for compensation. A specialist at The Byrne Practice will consult with you, investigate and advise you on the merits and prospects of your claim’s success before taking it forward.
We will carry out a free assessment of your claim either at our office or at your home and will deal with your claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis.
Our agreements are in plain English.
Road traffic accidents
If you are involved in a road traffic accident and it was someone else’s fault, then you could make a claim for compensation.
Accidents at work
No one goes to work to get injured but accidents in the workplace do happen. Thankfully, all employers must have an insurance policy in place to cover this possibility and so if you are injured during your employment you are able to be compensated for it. Whilst we can’t help you get better, we can ensure that you are at least covered financially.
Here at The Byrne Practice we will assess your potential claim and advise whether you are entitled to compensation, and if you are, we will leave no stone unturned getting it for you.
Accidents in public places
If you have an accident when out and about, there will always be someone who was responsible for your safety in that area whether that’s the shop, bar, restaurant etc that you are in or the street you are on. A legal duty exists which means all of these ‘people’ have to minimise and avoid, where possible, any risk of injury on their premises. If they failed to do this, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Accidents/illness whilst on holiday
Your holiday operator has a responsibility to ensure that your health and safety is not put at risk particularly when it relates to hygiene standards. If you have been ill whilst on holiday, you may be able to claim compensation.
A No Win, No Fee Agreement (also known as a Conditional Fee Arrangement) allows you to make a compensation claim with no financial risk to you and without paying any solicitors’ fees upfront.
We’ll assess your personal injury claim in a free initial consultation and advise you on whether we think you have a case.
From there, we will discuss your different funding options with you. Most of the claims we handle are on a No Win, No Fee basis.
If you win your case, your opponent will pay the majority of our basic legal costs and disbursements (e.g. court fees, medical reports).
In successful No Win, No Fee claims:
If you lose, we can promise that there is no financial risk to you if your claim is unsuccessful. This means that:
There’s no fixed compensation tariff but we’ll do everything we can to make sure you recover the maximum amount of compensation where possible. The amount of compensation awarded is affected by the quality of the preparation of a claim and our track record is outstanding.
Your compensation will be calculated using expert evidence that we gather. The amount will depend on factors such as:
Although the majority of personal injury claims are funded through a No Win, No Fee Agreement, there are other funding options available such as Legal Expenses Insurance, Trade Union Membership and Legal Aid:
Legal Expenses Insurance – this is often included on household insurance policies and may cover some or all of the legal costs involved in making a personal injury claim.
Trade Union Membership – if you’re a member of a trade union, they may provide assistance for some legal issues.
Legal Aid – this is available for birth injury claims on behalf of children who suffered a serious neurological injury during pregnancy or within eight weeks of their birth.
Our lawyers are very experienced in assessing whether you already have cover and advising on the best funding option available to you.
For a free consultation on making a claim, contact our No Win, No Fee solicitors or contact us online and we’ll call you back.
When you contact us, you’ll speak to one of our friendly team members who will talk to you about your injuries or illness. This initial consultation is free, confidential and from there we’ll advise you on the best way to take your claim forward and if there are any steps we can take straight away to help with your immediate needs.
We’ll contact those responsible for your accident or illness to see if they accept responsibility for what happened. If they accept responsibility, we’ll try to secure interim payments which can fund any immediate medical care, rehabilitation and expenses while your claim is ongoing. These interim payments will be taken out of your final compensation award.
Our experts will look into your case in detail gathering evidence from various sources such as witnesses and independent medical professionals.
We’ll employ medical professionals to find out how your accident or illness impacted your health and recommend the care, rehabilitation and support you’ll need in the future in order to make the best recovery possible.
This will depend on the severity of your injuries and the long term impact.
To work out how much compensation you’re entitled to, we’ll take into account factors such as:

If you have a personal injury claim underway with another law firm and you’re concerned about the way it has been handled, you can ask for a second opinion. We’ve helped many people who’ve been dissatisfied with the advice or service they’ve received and will make your transition between firms as smooth as possible.
If you’ve received poor quality service, we suggest that you present your concerns to your current lawyers first. After this, we’re happy to offer a second opinion and will give you free independent advice on your claim so you can make an informed choice about moving.
We’ll provide you with honest guidance about your claim and will quickly decide how we can best help proceed with your case.
