Personal Injury

Have you had an accident or injury?

A serious injury can have a huge impact on someone’s life.  Aside from the shock and pain of an injury, an accident can have serious financial implications too – and not just for the injured person but also for his/her family.

Our team in Devon represents clients across the South-West and throughout the UK.

Bartons solicitors are not a ‘claims factory’ firm.  We will generally turn down claims where there has only been a minor injury.  Bartons specialise in serious injury claims, where the compensation will be many thousands of pounds.  These claims demand a high level of client support, and require the expertise of experienced lawyers.

We will offer you a ‘no win, no fee’ arrangement.  There will be no financial risk to you.

And, unlike most solicitors, we won’t charge you a success fee.

 Personal injury compensation

When someone has been injured, as a result of another’s negligence, the injured person is entitled to be put back into the same financial position as they would have been if the accident had not occurred.

Our personal injury lawyers, based in Devon, are highly experienced in recovering the maximum amount of compensation for injured Claimants.

We will work quickly to gather the evidence required, to ensure your claim has the best chance of success.

Accidents and injury

We will act for you if you have a serious injury claim arising from:

  • An accident at work;
  • An accident at sea;
  • A road traffic accident;
  • An occupation-related illness;
  • An accident in a public place; and
  • Any other accident when someone else is to blame.

Where liability is admitted, we will do our best to make sure you receive timely medical treatment where possible.   We can often secure an interim payment to cover your immediate financial losses.

We will assist you to make the best recovery possible, both physically and psychologically.

Accidents at sea

Bartons are specialists in marine law and maritime matters.  We have experience in dealing with claims arising from accidents on yachts, fishing vessels, pleasure boats and passenger ships.

We understand the hazards of working in the marine environment, which makes us particularly well-placed to deal with personal injury claims from accidents at sea.

There are often different time-limits which apply to claims arising from an accident at sea.  Contact our marine personal injury specialists, who will be happy to discuss your claim.

Claim for personal injury

Taking the first step to bring a personal injury claim is not always an easy decision to make.

Call us and we will be happy to discuss your situation with you, and advise whether we believe you have a case.

We are based in  the South-West but, if you live further afield, we can arrange to visit you at home if required.

No win, no fee, and no success fee

We will discuss different funding options with you.  Usually, we will offer you a ‘no-win, no-fee’ agreement.  This means we will not charge you for our time, if your claim does not succeed.

Normally, if you win your case, the Defendant will pay your legal fees.

Most solicitors charge their personal injury clients a success fee, which can often lead to large deductions from their clients’ compensation.

Here at Bartons, we want to help you keep your compensation.

 No success fee – Bartons will not charge you a success fee.

In addition, we can put in place an insurance policy on your behalf.  Providing you comply with your obligations (which we will discuss with you), there will be no financial risk to you to bring a claim.
