Personal Injury

We understand the distress caused to you and your family when you suffer injury through no fault of your own. Our specialist personal injury team can provide you with the best level of service to take you through the process smoothly and fairly. We are experts in personal injury including fatal accidents, accidents at work, road traffic accidents and children’s injuries. We act in claims against other solicitors when they have failed to deal with a personal injury claim properly or personal injury professional negligence.

We particularly represent clients with claims that are likely to have a value of over £25,000 for accidents that might include a road traffic accident, an accident at work or whilst you are out and about. We have recovered millions of pounds of compensation for our clients over the years.

We specialise in representing clients who have been offered a settlement at the early stages of a claim by the Defendant insurance company but are entitled to claim much more. In the vast majority of our cases this results in us seeing claims settled by tens or even hundreds of thousands of pounds more than the original offer.

We can help set up and advise on management of PI Trust Funds. If you are to be awarded a significant damages sum and are in receipt of benefits you should have been advised on how to keep your benefit rights and yet still have access to your compensation. The rules for what you can and cannot do once a trust fund is set up are not complicated but the rules on how and when the trust fund is to be set up needs careful consideration. We can prepare all the paperwork a bank will need for you to open this special type of account. It’s all part of the service for our personal injury clients.

If you do not have legal expenses or insurance to fund your claim then we may offer to run your claim on a no win no fee basis. Please give us a call to find out how we can help you. Here are some examples of personal injury cases we have dealt with.

We can advise on building and managing a property portfolio. We work quickly and efficiently to ensure you are getting the most from your property dealings. We can also advise on conveyancing professional negligence if you have been poorly represented by another solicitor or professional such as an architect. Here are some examples of conveyancing cases we have dealt with.

Landlord & Tenant

Are you a landlord with a concern over a lease or a tenant?

We can help whether it is a commercial or residential premises and can be relied upon to look after all property legal matters regarding tenants including eviction and chasing rent payments.

Commonly issues crop up with tenants who are a problem and will not leave rented or leased premises despite falling behind in paying the rent. When instructed by a landlord in such circumstances and after having obtained the appropriate court order we often will attend with bailiffs or other enforcement officers to evict the tenant.

Building Disputes

Have you had building work carried out and the standard of work is not what it should be?

Is a builder chasing you for payment but they have not done what you were told would be done?

Is the building work incomplete or greatly behind schedule and having an impact on running your business or your life?

Unfortunately these disputes are on the increase we know that they are really stressful but here at Glassbrooks we have the experience to help you sort out the mess.

Here is an example of a building dispute case we have dealt with.

Medical Negligence Claims

We can offer you more specialist and experienced understanding of clinical and medical negligence cases than the average law firm, which allows us to explain matters to you in an easy way.

We will take you through the difficult and often very sensitive areas of such a claim.

We have represented clients with issues ranging from, GP’s failing to refer, a misdiagnosis, inappropriate treatment, poor nursing care or shoddy surgery.

If you do not have legal expenses or insurance available for your claim we may offer funding on a no win no fee basis. Please give us a call to find out how we can help you. Here is an example of a medical negligence case we have dealt with.

Insurance Claims

Insurance policies are taken out to give you peace of mind. Yet when you go to make a claim on them the insurers are often not interested and will not pay out. This is where we can help. We have experience of how to deal with insurance companies and have no fear of taking such matters before a court when necessary. When you cannot get satisfaction in a claim on your own insurance we might be able to help you. We have represented a client in respect of a claim against a ‘Keyman style’ policy where the view taken by the insurer is such that they won’t pay out when the purpose of the policy is clearly intended to pay up in circumstances where the policyholder is unable to work due to ill-health. We also successfully fought against a provider of a house insurance policy who declined to pay out following damage at the property. We were able to resolve the issue for the client with some skilful negotiation and avoided taking the matter before a court. If you think we can help, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Solicitor Negligence

Have you been let down by a solicitor and don’t know what to do?

Has that professional failed to give you proper advice or look after your best interest or maybe they have charged extortionate fees?

If your previous legal expert wasn’t quite expert enough we may be able to help.

If this has happened to you, you may be entitled to compensation. Please feel free to have a chat with us about how we can help.
