Personal Injury

A Personal Injury

Coodes solicitors holds a free personal injury legal advice clinic at the Dracaena Centre once a fortnight on a Friday between 10 and 1pm.  If you want to make an appointment please contact the legal team on 01326 319414 or email at

 If you have suffered an injury or illness as a result of someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence, you may be able to claim compensation from those responsible. Coodes personal injury solicitors are here to advise if you could claim compensation, helping you get back to the position you were in before.

Coodes personal injury lawyers can talk through your situation with you over the phone, or face to face if you prefer. They can provide you with some initial free advice to help you decide if you wish to proceed with making a claim. We will guide you through every step of the legal process and ensure that you get the medical assessments you need to obtain the best outcome for you.

 Most of the PI claims Coodes handle are on a no win no fee basis, which means:

 · If you win your case your opponent will pay the majority of your legal costs. Any legal costs not paid by your opponent and the lawyer’s success fee will be deducted from the compensation that you receive.

 · If you lose your case, you won’t pay anything.

 ·What kinds of injuries could I claim for?

 Coodes can help you to claim compensation for a range of personal injuries, including:

 An accident at work, a road traffic accident, a fall or a slip.

 ·How long do I have to make a personal injury claim.

 You usually have three years from the date of the accident or knowing about your injury, to pursue a claim. There are some exceptions, which Coodes can advise you on.


 If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of medical negligence by an NHS organisation or healthcare professional, you may be able to claim compensation.

 If a doctor, nurse or any other medical professional has provided substandard treatment and care to you or a loved one, which has resulted in an injury, worsening of your medical condition, or in some cases, death, then you may be able to make a compensation claim against the NHS.

 The aim of any compensation received is to attempt to put you back in the position you would have been in but for the negligence. It is not awarded to you so that you can benefit from any award financially but is simply there to fill the gaps in your life caused by the negligence.
