For more than 50 years George Ide LLP has provided high quality legal advice and legal services. With offices in Marylebone, London, we provide expert and accessible advice delivered in a professional and friendly manner to all clients.
Experienced and expert legal representation is essential. If you or a loved one has suffered personal injury in an accident caused in part or in full by another person, it may be possible to claim compensation.
George Ide provides bespoke legal advice as one of the UK’s leading specialist personal injury law firms. With a focus on serious injury claims, including brain and spinal injuries, George Ide acts for clients across the country and abroad.
When appropriate we can provide access to independent, professionally trained case managers who will identify the extent of an accident victim’s rehabilitation needs, and help throughout your claim. Our personal injury solicitors can negotiate the successful payment of rehabilitation and treatment costs from the responsible party’s insurers – we offer a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement when appropriate. Our team works together to provide the very best settlement package for you.
Our personal injury lawyers work to understand your individual needs, arranging the best available therapies, treatment and rehabilitation for your specific circumstances. We work to keep you fully informed and updated throughout every stage of the process of your claims case, outlining the steps ahead and the timeframes involved.
As experienced specialists in brain injury injury claims, we provide professional support and advice to brain injury survivors, their families and carers. George Ide is proud to work in conjunction with Headway West Sussex, The Brain Injury Association and the Brain Injury Group amongst others, to ensure our clients receive the best possible legal advice.

This will always depend on the nature of the injury that you suffer – this includes the severity of the injury, as well as how long the injury lasts for. The amount you can claim will, therefore, vary dramatically from case to case. It is wise to be wary of any legal advice that tells you the value of your claim before you have started the process. At George Ide we specialise in ensuring you receive the maximum compensation based on the facts of your case.
The majority of personal injury cases are completed within six to nine months of the process being started. However, it should be noted that depending on the nature and details of your claim, the amount of time can vary from a few months to a number of years in order to see it through.
It is not usually the case that claimants need to go to court. It is quite rare because cases only generally go to court if the facts of how the injury occurred are in dispute from the other side. In the majority of cases, where the defendant admits liability, the case settles without court proceedings being issued.
You may still be able to make a claim depending on the specifics of the case. It may be that you can make a claim against an individual, or against an insurance policy held at the time.
Being partly responsible for the injury will not be a barrier for you to make a claim. In the case that you were partially at fault for the accident that led to your injury, an adjustment will simply be made at the end of the case in order to reflect the degree to which you were responsible for the incident. The team at George Ide will be able to advise you on this.
