Frequently asked questions

This page lists some common questions asked by our clients. If you have a question that is not answered here, please contact us and we will answer it for you.

Have you dealt with my type of case before?

Serious Law has dealt with some of the largest personal injury cases to have been concluded in the UK. We have achieved numerous multimillion pound settlements and we have won cases rejected by other law firms.

We have extensive experience of cases from across the entire personal injury spectrum including road traffic accidents, workplace accidents, criminal assaults, accidents in public places, medical negligence and work related disease. To discuss your particular circumstances, please contact us.

How much will it cost for me to use your services?

Funding arrangements need to be considered on a case-by-case basis as circumstances can vary greatly. ‘No win-no fee’ agreements, otherwise known as Conditional Fee Agreements, are available in some cases and alternatively, we often represent our clients under an already-held policy of legal expenses insurance.

Whatever arrangements are made, however, we have a long and proud history of ensuring that our clients receive 100% of the damages that they have been awarded. To learn more, visit funding.

 Do you have any testimonials from previous clients?

We pride ourselves on having an extremely high standard of client service and demonstrate this through testimonials from previous clients, healthcare and other professionals and charitable organisations


My injury is not severe. Can I still use your services?

Although our services focus on serious and catastrophic injury cases, we are still able to offer alternatives to help you in your situation.

We will gladly discuss your specific case and provide advice and assistance wherever we can, and you are welcome to request our services.

How long will my claim take?

No two serious injuries are exactly the same, and due to their complexity, there is no set duration of time for a serious injury claim to reach a conclusion. It is important for medical and legal professionals involved in the case to assess and fully understand the long-term impact that the injury will have on a person’s life.

It is only with an accurate assessment that the correct settlement package can be achieved. For more information, go to claim process.

I need immediate financial assistance. How can you help?

During legal proceedings, financial assistance can be provided (when necessary) by what is known as an interim payment. In simple terms, this is where you receive part of your expected compensation before the actual settlement date.

Legal proceedings can take time to complete, so it is standard practice to secure interim payments where required during the lifetime of the case. If you would like to discuss any financial issues that you may have with our serious injury claim experts, please contact us.

 I already have a solicitor. Can you help?

Yes we can.

We at Serious Law LLP often have cases transferred to us from clients who are unhappy with their present solicitor. This is often as a result of lawyers without the necessary expertise and experience acting in complex serious injury cases for which they are not suitably qualified.

To find out how to transfer your serious injury claim to us, please visit change solicitor.

How soon should I get in contact after an injury?

Only as soon as you feel ready to do so. In most cases, starting at the date of the injury, there is a three year time limit to make a personal injury claim.

Therefore the earlier we are instructed, the sooner we will provide you with the help and peace of mind that you need, and deal with any concerns you that may be experiencing. If you would like to learn more, please contact us.
