If an accident claim has been issued against you, or you have been accused of negligence let us help you to vigorously defend the case
Why Taylor Law?
Defendant personal injury solicitors
At Taylor Law, our experienced defence team offers advice and representation in respect of personal injury claims across a range of sectors.
Commercially astute advice and representation
If a personal injury claim is made against you or your business, it is important to seek legal advice without delay. There are time limits for responding to correspondence and failing to adhere to these could result in a court order against you.
The claimant will almost certainly have legal representation, sometimes by an experienced personal injury lawyer, and may be bringing the claim on a no win, no fee basis, meaning they have nothing to lose in suing you. By engaging an expert legal adviser, you can defend yourself and your business and
limit or even eliminate damages payable. As well as seeking legal advice as soon as you become aware of any claim, you should also notify your insurer.
At Taylor Law our advice is practical and commercially-focused. We understand the importance of reaching an acceptable solution without undue delay and we will work proactively on your behalf to resolve any claim. Our solicitors are expert negotiators and will put together a strong case on your behalf to defend the action against you. If there has been contributory negligence on the part of the claimant, we will ensure that this is taken into account when negotiating.

Defending a personal injury claim
If you do not have an insurer who is willing to defend a claim against you, for example if you are an individual or your policy has a large excess, you should instruct an expert personal injury lawyer to act on your behalf. If you do not have professional representation, you could miss opportunities to
mitigate your loss and you may miss deadlines if you are unaware of them.
Often, a settlement can be negotiated without the need for going to court, and if the claimant has contributed to their injury by way of contributory negligence, a reduction in compensation can be agreed because of this.

“Had trouble in the past with firms not having a regular point of contact and having to chase up personally for information. Found Taylor Law to be extremely well equipped to manage every element of my case and got me the outcome I asked for in our initial meeting. Wouldn’t use anyone else in the future or even consider it”.
