Latest news & insights:

If you or someone you know has suffered an injury from an accident caused in part or in full by another person, then you may be considering a claim for compensation. Penningtons Manches Cooper is regarded as one of the leading specialist personal injury advisers in the UK, especially for serious injury claims involving brain and spinal injuries, and has clients across the country.

We are known for our wealth of experience in advising on a range of cases, including those resulting from road traffic accidents, incidents at work and accidents overseas. We have particular expertise in handling cases involving complex and multiple injuries and where liability issues are complicated or there are multiple potential defendants.

The Law Society has appointed members of our team to its referral panel of personal injury specialists. We are also accredited by the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and our lawyers’ expertise is recognised by Headway and the Spinal Injuries Association. The two main legal directories, Chambers Guide to the UK Legal Profession and The Legal 500, identify us as one of the top teams in our field.

We provide a client focused service, making the earliest possible assessment of every potential claim and agreeing an action plan that sets out the steps to be taken in detail. Every case is different and we take time to get to know you so that we understand your injuries and objectives completely.

Initial advice is offered free of charge and without obligation. This can include guidance provided by telephone, a visit from one of our specialist solicitors or a review of your documents. We offer various forms of funding, including legal aid and no win no fee (conditional fee) agreements. Our team aims to ensure that you receive maximum compensation while minimising the legal costs involved.
