Criminal Injuries

The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) deal with compensation claims from people who have been physically or mentally injured because they were the victim of a violent crime. We can assist you with your application to the CICA. We can also advise as to the merits of a review or appeal against an application that has been refused or where the level of compensation is to be challenged. We have dealt with many cases under the CICA scheme including those arising from physical, mental or sexual abuse as well as cases involving substantial levels of compensation.

Accidents At Work

If you’ve been injured as a result of an accident during your work you may be entitled to compensation for your injury and any losses – for example; loss of earnings.  This may be so whether you were working as an employee or as an independent contractor. Everyone should expect, as a minimum, a safe place of work and safe equipment to work with. The failure to meet minimum standards can also result in disease e.g. through exposure to asbestos and noise. We have acted in hundreds of workplace accident claims. We recognise the hardship that can be caused by losses of earnings often coupled with needs for care and medical treatment.  In the early stages of the claim we assess immediate needs so that they are recognised and dealt with – funded rehabilitation and return to work is then as important as compensation if not more so. We specialise in portal claims. A quick turnaround for low value claims where we can use technology to get a fast outcome for you. If you’ve been involved in a no fault accident at work within the last three years and you want one local person to deal with your claim contact us.  

Free first meeting – no win/no fee/no problem – So you‘ve nothing to lose by contacting us today.

Road Traffic Accidents

We would like to help you if you have been injured in a road traffic accident which wasn’t your fault whether your involvement was as a driver, passenger or pedestrian.  With this in mind we have produced a glove box guide to help at the time of any accident.  Free copies of the guide can be collected from our offices or posted to you. It is well known that following a road accident you are likely to be bombarded with calls and texts offering compensation claim services in respect of your injury.  In most cases this will not be a local company and you will not be able to meet the people dealing with your claim.  We believe that a personal relationship is essential to understand your claim and that communication is key. This was shown in a case which we took over from another firm which was over a hundred miles away from our client’s home in the Southend area.  He complained that several people had dealt with his claim, he had never met any of them and that in being advised to accept damages in the sum of £5,000 for a wrist injury a more serious condition was overlooked.  We settled the case for £94,000. We specialise in portal claims. A quick turnaround for low value claims where we can use technology to get a fast outcome for you. If you’ve been involved in a no fault accident within the last three years and you want one local person to deal with your claim contact us. 

It’s important that you try to get everything right at the time of the accident. BTMK’s glove box guide will help. A free copy of the guide can be collected from our offices or posted to you – you can request this via our contact form here, or download your own version ready to print.

Free first meeting – no win/no fee/no problem – So you‘ve nothing to lose by contacting us today.

Tripping & Slipping Accidents

It is what it says on the tin. These type of accidents can happen on the pavement, on the road or in premises visited by the public e.g. shops, schools.  Those responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of these areas have a duty to ensure that they are safe and do not represent a tripping or slipping hazard.  If they fail in this duty those who suffer injuries and losses may be entitled to compensation from them. We specialise in portal claims. A quick turnaround for low value claims where we can use technology to get a fast outcome for you. If you’ve been involved in an accident of this type within the last three years and you want one local person to deal with your claim contact us.
