Personal Injury

Accidents, injuries and illness can have a dramatic, sometimes devastating effect on your life - whether you are the person who has been injured or you are someone close to them.

At Raleys Solicitors, we understand just what you may be going through, the fears and anxiety you have about what to do next and how best to deal with a personal injury. That’s why our team of expert personal injury lawyers will work closely with you to ensure that your specific needs are addressed – be it to pursue compensation, gain access to medical care and support, fund rehabilitation or any other help that you and your loved ones may require.

We appreciate the effects that a personal injury can have on the lives of all of those involved, and our sympathetic, friendly legal specialists will work tirelessly to secure you the justice you deserve. We are experienced in securing compensation on behalf of people who have sustained injuries through a range of circumstances, including:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Work-related illness
  • Fatal accidents
  • Head and brain injury
  • Amputation claims
  • Accidents in public places
  • Criminal injuries claims
  • Holiday accidents - at home and abroad
  • Injuries caused by animals
  • Injuries caused by faulty products
  • Accidents in private premises
  • Pavement trips/slips
  • Sports injury claims

We will fight to ensure that you receive the compensation you need in order to help you move on with your life, and we will do everything we can to make the process of pursuing a personal injury claim as clear, simple and stress-free as possible.


Personal Injury Trusts
If you receive means-tested benefits, then any personal injury compensation you receive will be taken into account when calculating your entitlement to those benefits. However, you can prevent your damages award from affecting your right to claim such financial assistance by placing your compensation into a Personal Injury Trust.

Even if you do not currently receive means-tested benefits, setting up a Trust when you receive your damages can prevent you from losing out on any future benefits you might need to claim if your circumstances were to change. A Personal Injury Trust can even be used to protect your compensation from being taken into account for the cost of current or future long-term care.

In order to avoid losing out on any benefits – now or in the future - a Personal Injury Trust should ideally be set up before you receive your compensation, but our experts can help you set one up at any time within a year from the date you receive your award.

If you think that you would benefit from a Personal Injury Trust, the specialist lawyers at Raleys will be able to advise you on whether a Trust is appropriate for you, and will guide you through each and every step of the process.
