Personal Injury — Do you have a claim?

If you have suffered an injury at work (including industrial disease), on a sports field, on the road or in a public place or tripped on an unsafe pathway or been injured by a defective product or equipment, you may have a claim.

You may also have a claim if you have been the victim of a criminal assault or suffered through clinical negligence.

Generally to pursue a claim the injury must have occurred within the last three years. However, there are exceptions, for instance for children or where the consequences were not immediately apparent.

Ten reasons to choose Thomas Dunton to represent you:

1.   Specialist Personal Injury Team – we have a specialist team headed by Robert Sardo who, with over 20 years experience,  has Senior Litigator Approved Status with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and is an Approved Member of the Law Society’s Specialist Personal Injury Panel.

He is a member of the United Kingdom Acquired Brain Injury Forum and the Association of Child Abuse Lawyers.

2.  Qualified lawyer —  When you speak to us you will be talking to a qualified lawyer, not a legal advisor at a call centre.

3.   Free one hour face to face interview —  We offer you a free one hour face to face interview – not just a phone call to an advisor at a call centre. This will enable us to see your injuries, the affect that they have on your health, finances and social life. We are then in the best possible position to judge the merits of your case and provide the best advice. There is no obligation to use our services

4.   Home & Hospital appointments – should you unable to attend our offices, we will be pleased to meet you at your home or hospital.

5.   Maximum compensation — We will strive to achieve the maximum compensation for your injuries.

Did you know that accident victims who turn down an insurer’s initial offer and seek legal advice get on average 2 – 3 times more compensation ?  (Source: The Law Society 2013)

6.   No win, No fee — We can offer you a full range of funding options including “No win, No fee”.

You do not have to pay any upfront costs and there will be nothing to pay should you lose the case.

7.   No hidden costs or extra fees – We will explain everything in detail so you know exactly what your costs are likely to be before you decide whether to instruct Thomas Dunton.

8.   Rehabilitation – something many others overlook but vitally important. Apart from striving for the maximum compensation, we will be actively pursuing the defendant to fund additional medical treatment to enable you to get back to full health as quickly as possible. As a local solicitor we will be familiar with local services such as Osteopathy, Physiotherapy etc.

9.   24 hours Response — We will respond to your enquiry within 24 hours. It is important for your peace of mind that you know someone qualified is looking into your case.

10. Established over 35 years – we have been representing clients with personal injuries, ranging from broken limbs to severe brain injuries, within Kent and S E London for over 35 years. We are local, professional and trusted.

  • Dear Lisa, Maria and Tessa,

    Thank you all for your amazing support throughout last year. It really was a hideous experience, but every time I got to the point I couldn’t breathe and I spoke to one of you, I felt instantly strong again. You really are a fabulous team.

    When Margaret left, I was really worried, but Maria you picked up the baton and ran with it brilliantly. Then when Maria you obviously had to put your own family first, Tessa picked up the baton and just kept running for me. Lisa you made me giggle and reassured me whenever I was about to cry or hide in a cupboard, often picking up the phone to check I was ok – so very kind. Crackerjack will now forever remind me of you!

    I will recommend you to any of my friends who decide they need to take this brave step. You are simply the best. I hope you all enjoy your acorns, and remind you of how much you’ve helped people like me get out of unhappy situations. As they say, from acorns mighty oaks grow.

    Many thanks to you all,

    I kind of miss you!!
