Powerful legislation exists to support people planning to make a claim, and our panel of injury solicitors have years of experience giving advice to clients regarding the likelihood of success.

- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
The lawyer will discuss each of these points and will look at how they apply in your case.
