Personal Injury Law is a source of increasing work for law firms and other legal service providers. There are over 10 million accidents in the UK each year alone, with 2 million of these occurring as the result of someone else’s negligence. The majority of personal injury compensation claims in the UK arise following car or motorcycle accidents. However accidents can happen at any time and in any situation including public places, work places or as a result of industrial disease.

What our clients say...
Now that I have qualified, I have taken on files which would otherwise have been dealt with by solicitors. Passing this course has helped me so much both in terms of my knowledge and my confidence. The course has clarified points, filled knowledge gaps and trained me to think about dealing with everyday situations in a different, more practical and more efficient way. My confidence continues to grow!

I enjoyed the programme because it allowed me to organise my studies around my full-time job, and still have free time within the schedule. Since completing the Qualification in Personal Injury Law, I have gained more confidence in performing my role as a Legal Services Assistant. I also feel able to offer more support to my manager, the Trust's solicitor. My advice would be that it's never too late to start a career in the law. This programme allows one to achieve this whilst continuing to work concurrently. Catherine Aherne, BTEC Graduate, Legal Services, Weston Area Health NHS Trust
I have a far better understanding of how a personal injury claim works the length of time these types of cases can take to complete and the processes/terminology used by solicitors. I am one of two newly qualified Paralegals in the entire business dealing solely with all Subrogated Claims so the benefit to the company has been invaluable. I decided to become a Paralegal to gain more confidence in my job role and to support me in day to day decisions. Martine Vear, Subrogated Claims Advisor, Simplyhealth
