Employment Law

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.

Working on a no win, no fee basis with a free initial consultation, you can discuss your situation and understand what your claim may look like from the outset without obligation. We will even come to you to suit your requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions

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.

What Our Clients Say

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!

Susan Todhunter

Miss S


I wish to place on record my thanks to Rachael and the practice for the exemplary manner with which you have handled this case, in particular the degree of consideration for my feelings and the sensitivity that has been shown all the way through.

I had not anticipated that the matter would be settled so soon or at the level you achieved and I am most grateful for all your efforts. Although any amount of monies are no substitute for the loss of my wife, the fact that there is now a sum providing a legacy in her name for our grandchildren is indeed some comfort.

Rachael Lomas

Mr T


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.
