Personal Injury

Unfortunately, accidents can and do happen. Sometimes this is caused by our own mistakes but sometimes we get hurt because of the actions of others. If you have been seriously injured in an accident or sustained a serious injury that was not entirely your fault, you could be entitled to compensation.

Suffering a personal injury can have a considerable, sometimes devastating, impact on your life. It can affect many aspects, such as your ability to work and your ability to do the things you enjoy , and can be the cause of much pain and suffering. Compensation can help you return your standard of living - as far as is possible - to where it was before your injury.

Our specialist areas include:


With our Senior Partner, Hugh Potter, heading our serious personal injury department, we have well-regarded team that focuses on complex and high-value catastrophic injury cases.

Clinical Negligence

Unfortunately, we know that sometimes doctors, nurses and other health professionals make mistakes when treating patients. Potter Rees Dolan’s clinical negligence solicitors are committed to helping you make a claim for compensation.

While we like to think professionals will always carry out their duties with care, they are only human and mistakes can and do happen. If this leads to suffering on your behalf, however, you may be entitled to claim compensation. This money can be essential in making sure you are able to get back on your feet and able to live your life as you did before, or as close to this as is possible.

Potter Rees Dolan’s clinical negligence solicitors have secured substantial compensation awards including:
