Personal Injury

At Watkins & Gunn, our experienced and approachable personal injury  lawyers can quickly help identify if your  accident at work, on the road or in a public place is due to the negligence of others. We are also highly respected medical negligence lawyers and can help with negligence claims against medical professionals and health trusts.


No one plans to be injured. We see our role as to help to rebuild shattered lives after an accident. Compensation is not a windfall, it is intended to compensate you for the pain,  suffering and inconvenience of an injury and put you in the position you would have been in had the accident never occurred. Typically after an accident you may  suffer a loss of earnings, or need rehabilitation or have future care needs, we will ensure that you are fully supported in your recovery and receive the compensation you are entitled to. 

If you have had an accident or have been a victim of medical negligence within the last three years that caused you an injury and someone else is to blame, contact us. We offer a free initial appointment to advise you so that you may make an informed choice as to how you wish to proceed. We are also willing to act on a “no win no fee” basis, in appropriate cases.

These can include your loss of earnings, medical expenses and any care and wellbeing needs that you have received or will need in the future from a professional carer or family members.

How can you fund your claim?

We will assess your claim at an initial free interview at one of our offices or if you prefer at your home or at hospital. At that interview we will explain the options to fund your claim, which include the possibility of legal aid, legal expenses insurance via your home contents insurance policy, or a No win, No fee agreement.
