We communicate with our clients in an easy to understand & straightforward way because we understand that you’ve already suffered a traumatic experience following your accident.
Employing the best people and using the latest technology to manage claims ensures that Hampson Hughes constantly provides a speedy resolution to personal injury. We have awarded millions of pounds in compensation to satisfied clients over the past 2 years, and are constantly praised for our friendly, no nonsense approach and determination.

We work under a no win, no fee agreement.

Simply put, if we are successful with your claim for personal injury compensation, all legal fees are charged to your opponent.
If however we do not win your personal injury compensation claim you will not be charged any costs or legal fees.
Generally, you have a time limit of three years from the date of your accident to open a claim for personal injury compensation.
However, there are a few exceptions to this rule:

  • If you were under 18 years of age at the time of the accident, the three year period only commences when you reach the age of 18 (In Scotland, this is age 16)
  • If you were unaware of the injury or illness at the time – for example: asbestosis. In these situations the three year period runs from the time that the claimant became aware of the injury or illness.
  • In cases of mental disability, the limitation period does not commence until the disability ceases. It can start at any time in the future if the disability does not come to an end.
