Expert legal representation is essential. If you or a loved one has suffered a personal injury in an accident caused in part or in full by another person, it may be possible to claim for compensation.
As one of the South of England’s leading specialist personal injury law firms, George Ide focusses on serious injury claims, including brain and spinal injuries. We act for clients throughout the UK and abroad.
With access to independent, healthcare-trained case managers, we will identify the extent of an accident victim’s rehabilitation needs. Our personal injury solicitors can negotiate the successful payment of treatment and rehabilitation costs from the responsible party’s insurers. When appropriate we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement, providing the very best settlement package for your specific needs.
Our personal injury lawyers will work hard to understand your individual situation and needs and, where appropriate, will arrange the best available therapies, treatment and rehabilitation. We will also keep you fully-informed and updated throughout your case and, when possible, we will outline each of the steps ahead and the timeframes involved.
George Ide is proud to work in conjunction with Headway West Sussex, The Brain Injury Association, and the Brain Injury Group amongst others. As experienced brain injury solicitors, we provide professional support and advice to brain injury survivors, their families and carers.
The amount that you can claim in compensation depends on the nature and severity of your injury, and how long your injury lasts for. This means that the actual amount varies enormously from case to case. You should be wary of anyone who tells you the value of your claim before you have started to make it. The team at George Ide will ensure you receive the maximum compensation available to you.
Once again, this can vary enormously depending on the nature of your claim, as it can take anything from a few months to years to see a claim through to its conclusion. Most cases are completed within six to nine months.
Not usually. It is quite rare for a personal injury claim to need to go to court – it generally only occurs when the facts of the case are disputed. In most cases, when the defendant admits liability, the case settles without court proceedings being issued.
Many people who suffer an injury will see their GP, but it is not necessary to do so. A claim can still be made even if you did not seek medical attention at the time or later.
This will not be a barrier to making a claim. If you were partially at fault for the accident which led to your injury then an adjustment would be made at the end of the case to reflect the degree to which you were responsible. Our team will advise you on this.
