Making an Accident or Personal Injury Claim

Birkett Long’s team understands the stress you are under following an accident or personal injury. We will do everything in our power to help your claim for compensation run smoothly.

Unlike national claims firms, Birkett Long will treat you as an individual – you will know who your lawyer is and will build up a relationship with them. Our team works from all our office locations, or will visit you at home, or in hospital, if required.

Anyone who has had an accident which was not their fault can claim compensation. For example:

  • Have you been involved in a road traffic accident?
  • Were you in an accident at work?
  • Have you had a trip, slip or fall?
  • Has an incident at hospital or a dentist's surgery resulted in personal injury?

The majority of personal injury or compensation claims are settled without even starting court proceedings and less than one per cent of all claims actually end up with a hearing in court. If you win your claim, the other side will have to pay a contribution to the legal costs.

We offer a free initial assessment of your personal injury claim and funding on a no win no fee basis, subject to approval. Fill out our accident claims form, with details of your incident, and we will contact you, or alternatively email or telephone Nadina Edmondson on 01245 453827 or

Other funding options are also available - take a look at our 'payment options for your dispute' page to find out more.


Birkett Long’s team has more than 40 years’ experience of accident claims and personal injury claims. Our team includes a senior litigator member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).
