Having an injury is always stressful, but applying for compensation shouldn’t be. At Romain Coleman, we understand that your wellbeing is of the utmost importance, which is why we will deal with your claim on your behalf.
At Romain Coleman, our team of personal injury solicitors will work tirelessly on your claim, so you won’t have to worry. We have experience in all manner of personal injury claims – from minor accidents to catastrophic injuries. We understand that every injury claim is different, which is why we treat every case as unique, tailoring our approach to best suit you.
It can be difficult dealing with the aftermath of an accident, and we endeavour to help you move your life forward with the best results possible. We will guide you step by step throughout the process, so you can focus on improving your health.
Suffering a personal injury can be traumatic and making a claim can seem like a daunting prospect. Having a team of professional personal injury solicitors on your side will help you get through this tough time quickly and efficiently.
The first thing you need to think about is whether or not you want to make a personal injury claim in the first place. Once you’ve decided that you do, you should contact a solicitor to help you process the claim and to handle all the legal aspects. Our solicitors take the time to discuss, analyse and understand your injury so we can help you achieve maximum compensation. Some insurance companies may try and convince you not to seek legal representation, but according to the Law Society, your case must be represented expertly. This will give you the greatest chance of success.
It is important to provide evidence of your injury/injuries during the claim process, and we can arrange a medical examination for you, at a convenient time and location. This will allow us to understand your injuries and estimate the time of recovery properly. This examination will help us value your claim and give you a rough idea of how much your injury is worth. During the examination, you will be questioned about how the injury has affected your life – your job, hobbies, time with your family, etc. Avoid accepting an offer from an insurance company before you have had a medical examination, as it will not take into consideration the extent of your injury and the potential of ongoing care.
It is also crucial to provide evidence of any financial losses as a result of your injury, such as loss of earnings, missed work time and medical costs.
Keep in mind that there is no rush to make a personal injury claim. You have up to three years from the date of your accident to make a claim, or three years from the ‘date of knowledge’- when the injury in question became significant. However, acting while the incident is still fresh in your mind will make for an efficiently dealt-with case, allowing you to move forward with recovery.
The time taken for a personal injury claim to be settled can vary; depending on how cooperative the other side is, your injuries and whether the case goes to court. A short-term injury may be resolved quickly, but a more serious case may stretch to two-four years.
Our personal injury solicitors are experts at what they do and have been incredibly successful at getting the best outcomes for their clients. Consulting with us, we can give you the best advice regarding the next steps for your claim. We can also approximate the compensation you should receive if your claim is successful. This will help us to negotiate a settlement on your behalf and may lead to your case being taken to court if we feel that a judge is needed to decide on a fair award. We focus on the legal matters, so you can take the time to concentrate on getting better, with the knowledge that your case is being taken care of by experts who have your best interests at heart.
During the claims process, you can expect regular and informative updates on the progress of your case. Unlike other personal injury firms, Romain Coleman only hires qualified solicitors, which guarantees that a skilled and experienced team will handle your case.

Many people may worry about the costs of making a claim, especially if they lose the claim. Working with Romain Coleman means you can rest easy knowing that you will not be facing a hefty legal bill. Your personal injury solicitor will only complete the necessary work to process your claim, so if you, unfortunately, lose your claim, you won’t have to worry about incurring a substantial fee. We put you first – and won’t blindside you with complicated legal jargon or long, drawn-out negotiations – we keep it simple.
If you win your claim, the losing party, most likely an insurance company, will pay for your legal costs. You will also receive compensation for your injuries. If you lose your claim, an insurance policy should cover the legal costs of the case and will pay these costs to the winning party.
Romain Coleman can help you with this process, from beginning to end. Whether your accident has happened at home, at work, on holiday or on the road, we will ensure that we achieve the best results possible for you.
In some situations, heading to court is the only way that you’ll be able to receive a fair compensation payment, especially if the opposing party is refusing to negotiate. This may sound like a daunting experience, but you may not be asked to attend court or to give evidence if the claim amount is under £25,000.
However, if the nature of your injuries is more serious and the claim is over £25,000, you may be required to give an account of your accident in court and how it affects daily life. We understand the need for professional support and prompt action in such situations. In this capacity, the personal injury solicitors as Romain Colman can help.
As experts in this field, we have ample experience in giving those who are required to provide evidence in court the best possible support and advice. We will be there every step of the way, so you feel confident going into the courtroom. You should never feel alone during the process of a claim, and with us, you don’t need to be.
At Romain Coleman, we are specialists in personal injury claims. We understand how much an injury can affect the lives of our clients and work unremittingly to achieve the appropriate amount of restitution. With us, you won’t have to worry about navigating the legal side of your claim and can focus on improving your physical and mental wellbeing. Our primary goal is to help you.
