Accidents can happen anywhere & at anytime; we all assume that we can go out and about in public without the risk of being hurt or injured. The reality is that we never really know what is around the corner.
Businesses are supposed to ensure your safety when on their premises, whether you are shopping in supermarket or in a session of paintballing.
They need to ensure all health and safety measures are accounted for to protect you from injury. Many injuries occur from Slips, Trips and Falls due to hazards such as wet floors or obstructions, but they can also occur due to negligence such as inadequate clothing and training.
It is not only businesses that have to ensure you are safe. Public bodies also have a duty to ensure you are safe when you are out and about. When you are walking to the local shop, getting to your car in a public car park or even cycling in your local park, local authorities have a duty to make sure public highways and public property are well maintained.
As members of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and the Law Society's Personal Injury Panel, our aim is to get you back on track as quickly as possible. Our team of specialists have vast experience in dealing with all types of personal injury claims, meaning we uncomplicate the legal process and guide you every step of the way, allowing you to move forward with the compensation you deserve.

Yes, we will require evidence of your accident. We would advise that if you want to make a claim you keep a note of all doctors’ appointments / prescribed medications you had to take for your injury as well as providing any photographic evidence of the injury you have suffered. We will also require photographic evidence of the obstruction/hazard which caused your accident.
In most cases the law requires that any claim is brought within 3 years of the injury date. There are, however, a few exceptions to this in certain circumstances. It is always best to contact a Solicitor as soon as possible to ensure that you have enough time to undertake the necessary investigations before bringing your claim. To find out if you can make a claim on an accident suffered more than 3 years ago please use the below to make an enquiry form.
You may be able to bring a claim on behalf of someone else if they are either under the age of 18 or do not have sufficient mental capacity to bring a claim themselves.

We cannot thank Michelle enough, for everything she has done for my mum. Michelle has been magnificent throughout. FBC are very fortunate to have Michelle working for them and future clients will be incredibly lucky to have Michelle as their solicitor.
I am very Grateful to Adam and his team for putting their effort in my case and taking care of me through all this time. They have helped me in getting therapy, helped me in getting a prosthetic, have helped me personally, have given me kind words of support and answers to all kinds of questions I had. Thank you for always showing understanding and having the patience to explain to me anything I would ask you, advising me and keeping up with my instability. Thank you very much with all my heart for all you you did for me, it brings me to tears knowing someone, you, who paid attention to me and my injury, to my mental needs without judging me or ever making me feel less. I appreciate deeply your attitude towards me all this time. Thank you again for everything. I will always remember what you have done for me.
FBC Manby Bowdler Solicitors are great, taking on my case 4 years ago when other solicitors told me I didn’t have a claim and I wasn’t entitled to any compensation. The people that work there are really nice people and make you feel very welcome. They gave me all the help and support I wanted and needed throughout my case and Susan Todhunter got me the best outcome ever. I was amazed by the result!
Having fought five years against an employer which had caused me exceptional harm, resulting in the catastrophic and premature end of my career, I could not be more pleased with the outcome secured by my Solicitor and Barrister. As a result I feel completely vindicated and my mental health, which had suffered so greatly, is well on the way to recovery. My Solicitor was a huge support because he understood the implications of the case on my health but also fully grasped the enormity of what I was fighting for. His communication was second to none - always timely, warm, friendly but he would often contact me in his own time, at home etc. I could not have asked for a more committed and dedicated legal representative in my corner.
I want to extend my sincere thanks to Randip Birring and FBC Manby Bowdler for taking my case on a no win no fee basis. From the outset Randip supported me and believed in me and was patient and answered all queries. I cannot thank her enough for this. Without Randip’s support I would not have been able to get to a satisfactory conclusion.
On behalf of my dad and my sister, I would like to thank you for all the hard work you have done to reach a successful conclusion to our claim. You have treated us with sensitivity and empathy throughout this sad and upsetting process for which our appreciation is immeasurable. For myself, to describe working with you as being a pleasure seems strange under the circumstances but nevertheless true!
The attention to detail in terms of my sons welfare from Adam Wilson has been exceptional. Everything that was done was purely in my son's best interests. The aftercare was superb, which has given me every confidence that my son received exactly the right treatment he needed at exactly the right time. The communication and organisation has also been second to none. I would have no reservations whatsoever to enlist your services in the future should I need to, or recommend you to anyone in a similar position.
We instructed FBCMB not really understanding the personal injury process but we liked their association with Headway and how professional they were when we first enquired about starting a claim.
Sue and Tonia have been amazing. Both approachable and friendly, totally non-judgemental not just caring about the claim and getting the right outcome for Paul but genuinely interested in his well-being and the human behind the claim. Always responsive and on the end of the line explaining the process simply and with patience.
In such difficult circumstances a life changing outcome was achieved.
The level of care and support provided by Sue and Tonia was what we valued most about our relationship with the FBCMB Team. Without their expert instruction, advice and guidance we would never have gained a diagnosis for Paul so quickly all whilst keeping his interest and the family at the heart of the work they have done.
