Supporting you Throughout Your Claims

Making a claim can be a daunting experience, especially if you have suffered harm and are not at your best and most able. In these situations, it is vitally important to have someone on your side, making sure that your case is effectively argued.

If you have concerns about filing a claim and are not sure whether this would benefit you, having an informal discussion with one of our claims specialists can help you to understand whether you have a claim and give you peace of mind that you will be supported throughout the entire claims process.

“They are always polite and helpful, and always respond to questions in a timely manner.” Legal 500 (2020) Personal Injury: Claimant.

An Experienced Claims Team

Our claims team regularly helps clients to resolve a wide range of legal claims, some examples of which follow. We have a separate page covering a range of legal disputes, where you can find information about employment disputes, boundary disputes and more. Please get in touch to see how we can help you.

Personal Injury Claims

You never know when an accident will leave you with an injury that could have long term, even lifelong, consequences. At Fraser Dawbarns our claims team are extremely experienced in dealing with personal injury claims and we can help guide you through this stressful and difficult time. We deal with all sorts of claims, including road traffic accidents and injuries that have occurred at your place of work or in a public place.

As every injury is different, so is every claim, Fraser Dawbarns offer a bespoke service built around your needs and those of your claim. We use independent medical experts to prepare reports on our clients’ injuries and do not use medical reporting agencies who choose the experts to be used. 

We also work on no win no fee agreements if the claim has a reasonable prospect of success, with no initial outlay from you. We also offer a free, no obligation, initial appointment to assess personal injury claims and advise you. If you’ve had a road accident, been hurt at work, suffered injury due to someone else’s fault or you are suffering the ill effects of a defective product or service, please contact us to discuss how we can help. 

Professional Negligence Claims

Individuals and businesses often need to use professional services. Solicitors, accountants, financial advisors, or surveyors or valuers give professional advice that their clients rely upon to be accurate. When such advice turns out to be wrong this can cause significant loss and distress. Professional Negligence can arise from many factors, such as administrative errors, technical or legal errors, or overlooking a client’s best interests.

There will also need to be consideration as to whether any loss has been caused by the breach of duty and how it should properly be assessed or valued. There may also be limitation issues to be considered such as whether the claim is time barred. Seeking professional advice on these issues is a vital step when bringing or defending a claim.

We can guide you through the process from the initial assessment, advising you on the merits of your claim through to pre-action correspondence and procedure. We can help with the negotiation of any settlement as well as taking the claim through mediation and if necessary Court proceedings. If you believe that you may have been given incorrect advice by a professional or if you are a professional facing a claim by a client, please contact Fraser Dawbarns.

Reclaiming Care Fees

Our claims team have considerable experience helping our clients to claim back nursing home fees. As the population ages, increasing numbers of people will need later life care, many of whom will receive that treatment in a care or nursing home. There has been considerable press coverage about care home fees, and weekly charges of £700-1,000 are not unusual.

It is equally true that large numbers of people will have to sell their houses in order to pay their care home fees. But should they have to or is there an obligation on the Local Health Authority to pay for continuing care?

It is possible to challenge a refusal to fund on-going care by a Local Authority, depending on the specific situation the individual find themselves in. The assessment focuses on 12 care domains that must be considered, and 3 levels of severity for each domain. The Local Authority must complete their review for continuing care within 3 months of your request being made, but you only have 6 months to request the review from the date the original decision is made.

So if you think you, or a relative or friend may be entitled to their care home fees paid by the Local Authority, call us today to make an appointment with one of our specialist solicitors for advice on claiming back nursing home fees. It could save you thousands of pounds.

Motorcycle Injury Claims

As the roads get safer, the number of road traffic accidents is thankfully decreasing. However, bikers are one group of road users who are not benefiting as much from this positive trend. At Fraser Dawbarns both the head of our Claims team and our Managing Partner are keen bikers and founders of the BMF Biker Legal Line. We understand what it means to be a more vulnerable road user and will do everything we can to support your claim.

Contact the Claims team at Fraser Dawbarns for help with your Motorcycle injury claim or any other road traffic accident claims.
