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, in a public place, tripped on an unsafe pathway or been injured by a defective product or equipment, you may have a claim if it wasn’t your fault.
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.
2. Qualified lawyer — When you speak to us you will be talking to a member of our team who is qualified lawyer, not a legal advisor at a call centre.
3. Free 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.

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 40 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 40 years. We are local, professional and trusted.
