Why Choose S. J. Edney?

S. J. Edney are a small firm (out of choice) and we believe that the key to our success is to ensure that we provide all our clients with an excellent service at all times – we know if we don’t, we simply will not survive.

With the new Legal Services Act, large concerns like the Co-op are now able to provide legal services to their customers and will be able to compete with the traditional law firm in the same way that supermarkets have been able to compete with other sectors. We are confident that we will be able to meet this challenge and continue to prosper in the future. Read the profile of Solicitor – Seamus Jude Edney and our testimonials.

What is no win no fee?

What is no win no fee?

Starting a case on a no win no fee basis means that if your compensation claim is not successful, you do not pay your solicitor’s fees.

If we win your case, the majority of your legal costs are likely to be paid by the defendant party, or their insurers. This enables people who have a valid claim to pursue a legal action, even if you don’t have the funds available for costly legal bills.

Levels of Compensation

The amount of compensation depends on each specific case...

Levels of Compensation

The amount of compensation depends upon the circumstances of each specific case.  For example: a medical negligence claimant whose complications caused a lifelong disability will likely be awarded many times the level of compensation awarded to someone who had a fall which kept them off work for a few weeks.

Once we have details of your injuries and financial losses, our no win no fee solicitors will be able to give you an idea of what compensation you could receive. Contact us to discuss your claim.

Types of Cases

Types of Cases

Our services fall broadly into two categories: Clinical Negligence cases (medical related) and Personal Injury (typically road accidents, accidents in the workplace or public areas). In addition, we deal with Inquests relating to deaths following medical and personal injury.

Specialising in these specific areas of the law means we have a wealth of experience handling client’s cases and are specialist in both categories.

What is the Claims Process?

An initial telephone consultation is usually adequate for us to establish if you have a claim which can be handled on a no win no fee basis.

Although not always necessary, our clients will often visit one of our offices to discuss the claim in more detail, or we can visit you at home or in hospital.  We then begin the legal process which you can read about in more detail here.

RECENT CASES

Compensation of £150,000.00 for Road Traffic Accident causing multiple fractures

We acted for a client (now aged 42) who was involved in a serious road traffic accident during November 2012. He was driving on the road close to his home in Cheltenham when he was struck head-on by another car, which was travelling in the wrong lane around a bend. The other driver was subsequently charged by the Police with ‘driving without due care and attention’, although at no time did his insurers admit liability. Our client sustained multiple injuries, including fractures to all four limbs (right leg, right elbow, left arm and left ankle), together with an injury to his bowel requiring a laparotomy and bowel re-section.

Road Traffic Accident
Compensation of £318,000.00 for delay in diagnosing and treating a stroke

We have been acting for a client who was unhappy with treatment he received at Great Western Hospital. During February 2012 (when he was only aged 48) he was admitted to the hospital complaining of a number of neurological symptoms (headache, dizziness and general unsteadiness). He was, however, advised that he was suffering with a migraine only and was discharged. About two weeks later, he was readmitted and a diagnosis of a stroke secondary to vertebral artery dissection (VAD) was made.

Delay in Treatment
Emma Cadywould was a 32-year-old, highly accomplished mother of a six-month-old baby. She lost her life in December 2011, after making her way to a railway track and being hit by a train. Emma had been experiencing severe perinatal (or ‘postnatal’) depression. She had been under the care of Avon & Wiltshire Mental Health Trust, but the care she received was woefully inadequate.
