At A.F. Brooks & Company we understand that being injured in an accident can not only result in immediate pain and symptoms but can also cause anxiety and distress if you are not able to work or carry out your day to day activities and there may be associated financial worries.
We firmly believe that if you have been injured through the negligence of someone else then you deserve to be fully compensated for your injuries and financial losses.
You may have had an accident:
• in a motor vehicle
• whilst at work
• in a public or other private place
• on a pavement or highway
• on holiday (in the UK or abroad)
• whilst participating in a sport
Alternatively, you may have contracted an illness/condition whilst on holiday, been injured following, for example, a criminal assault/attack by another person or lost a loved one in circumstances where another person or organisation is at fault.
You are likely to have many concerns and questions about what is involved in making a claim for compensation.
We will guide you through the claims process and answer any questions you have. Besides helping you to claim compensation for your injury we will also make sure that you are seen by appropriate medical experts who will advise on the type of rehabilitation treatment you may require.
The injuries sustained by our clients are wide ranging from spinal injuries, head injuries, fractures and psychological injuries.
In addition to recovering compensation for any injuries sustained you may also need to claim reimbursement for out of pocket losses/expenses such as:
• Loss of earnings/overtime
• The cost of painkillers and prescription charges
• Travelling expenses to and from medical appointments
• Treatment fees
Your claim can be funded in a variety of ways including a Conditional Fee Agreement (often referred to as a “no win no fee” agreement) all of which we will explain to you and advise on the most appropriate option for you.
We review every case and carry out an assessment as to the risks that may be relevant to that case. This assessment is not charged to you. After this assessment we will advise you of the level of the Success Fee that we would propose to charge in your individual case which may be anything from 0% to 25 % of the damages (or compensation) awarded to you depending on our assessment calculated on the costs incurred (i.e. work carried out).
