Free Personal Injury Clinic Available to Those in Telford

In the current climate it is not very often you hear about someone getting something for nothing.  However, here at Lanyon Bowdler we continue to run a free advice clinic at our Telford Office each Friday between 2pm and 5pm, where we provide assistance to people who have had accidents and wish to know whether or not they are entitled to receive any compensation. 

Our Personal Injury Team consists of one partner, three associate solicitors, two legal executives, two trainee solicitors, and two legal assistants who all specialise solely in relation to the law surrounding personal injury claims. 

Our wealth of knowledge and experience covers all areas of personal injury work such as road traffic accidents, accidents at work, slips and trips, industrial diseases, product liability, accidents aboard, dog bite claims and criminal injuries compensation claims.  Our specialists are also experienced in handling catastrophic accidents such as amuptations, head, brain and spinal injuries.

Whilst people suing for whiplash as a result of a road traffic accident is now more commonly known, not many people realise that the victims of crimes of violence are entitled to claim compensation from the Criminal Injuries Compensation Recovery.  These victims may be innocent people who are mugged, or people experiencing violence at the hands of estranged partners or neighbours with whom they have a dispute.  The Claims are not limited to assault only so if you are not sure whether you, or someone you know, is the victim of crime telephone one of our Team and they will be happy to help.

Karen Clarke of Lanyon Bowdler says, “We continue to run the free advice clinics as it enables people to drop in, with or without an appointment and have 15 minutes free advice with a specialist adviser.  There are always some cases, due to their sensitive nature, that some people may not feel comfortable talking about over the telephone, or indeed they may be so sensitive it takes time for the person to summon up the courage to ask someone for help, and we feel that allowing people the option to just drop in and get some help is a valuable service. 

"The Team are able to provide advice in all areas of personal injury law and it is great to feel we are able to offer a service to clients who need help and advice where some unplanned event has taken place and where their future is not always certain.  Whilst many people are often dismissive of whiplash injuries, these are well recognised injuries and whilst the majority of these types of cases do recover within a short space of time, there are many other accidents where the injuries are much more severe and have a knock on effect to people’s families and ability to work.  These people are vulnerable and need advice for securing their future and it is good to know we are able to offer them valuable advice and assistance.”
