Suffering a life changing injury requires a whole new approach and perspective to life and everyday living. The legal issues arising are complex. Just as the medical care you receive is likely to be provided by specialists, the solicitor you choose to help you will need to be a specialist  - experienced and expert in securing the right support and the right outcome via the litigation process. Trust us. We can help and we won’t let you down.

Who are we?

Brethertons have established a national reputation in specialist life changing injuries litigation.

What do we do?

We help people who have suffered catastrophic injuries. We have particular expertise and experience in spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injury, amputation and polytrauma cases. We can also help in Fatal Accidents cases.

Most of the compensation we recover is measured in six or seven and sometimes eight figures (lump sum equivalent).

When can we help?

We are often approached by patients or their families soon after the life changing injury. Occasionally we are asked to take over cases commenced by other solicitors. Most of our work comes through recommendation.

In cases where evidence might need to be preserved in order to establish your claim time may well be of the essence. Accessing the further support you may need after discharge and securing an interim payment may also be crucial for you. We can help.

Where are we based?

Our offices are based in the Midlands (Banbury, Bicester and Rugby) but we have a national reach and we help very seriously injured people all over the country.

We will travel to you as soon as practically possible for a free and no obligation meeting and wherever you are.

Why us?

We have built our practice so as to focus our injury litigation work on injuries of utmost severity. Those cases are where our expertise and experience has the most significant impact. The type of negligence that caused the injury is of less significance to us. We are passionate about helping very seriously injured people access justice and secure their futures.

Our small team secures literally millions of pounds in compensation each year for people who need it. We also have a close network of colleagues and contacts who can help you and your family with a range of related issues from legal advice and assistance, financial planning help, access to benefits, peer support and more.

How do we work?

The way we work is unique. We pride ourselves on our approachability. We take on a relatively small number of cases and it is very much a ‘first names terms’ approach and engagement with all of us. We aim to help you live your life rather than living the claim – that should be one less thing to worry about. We work on a no win no fee basis.
