Personal Injury Claims

DSM Legal Solicitors are personal injury solicitors based in Warrington who specialise in making ‘no win, no fee’ personal injury claims, including serious and fatal accident claims, on behalf of clients who have been injured in accidents that were not their fault. We have clients throughout Cheshire, Merseyside and the North West.
Making a compensation claim is probably not the first thing on your mind. You may still be suffering and in pain with your injuries. We can help you with your rehabilitation, for example we can arrange private medical treatment, such as physiotherapy to help you on the road to a speedy recovery. We will claim the costs from your opponent so that you do not have to worry about funding the treatment yourself.

We can assist with claims involving broken bones right through to serious injury and fatal accident claims. We will claim for past and future loss of earnings if you have been unable to work and have been left in financial difficulties. If liability is admitted we can apply for an interim payment of compensation on your behalf.

We’re here to help you from start to finish and ensure that you receive the best possible service.

Medical Negligence

Sadly mistakes happen and, when they do, they can have serious consequences for the patient and their family. This is why hospitals, doctors, healthcare professionals, nurses and GPs have a duty of care towards their patients and are required by law to hold insurance cover for medical negligence and medical malpractice claims. If you have suffered pain, injury or other loss (such as the death of a loved one) as a result of medical negligence we can help.

Medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence) is a complex area of law but here, at DSM Legal Solicitors in Warrington, we have the experience and the knowledge to help you.

Employment Law

Employment law covers a wide range of legal issues and our services are tailored to your specific needs. We are committed to serving the best interests of our clients and resolving all employment disputes as efficiently as possible.

We can help with all aspects of employment law, including:

• Unfair Dismissal
• Discrimination Claims
• Workplace Bullying
• Constructive Dismissal
• Redundancy
• Compromise or Settlement Agreements

If you would like an informal discussion to see if we can help get in touch.

We will give you straightforward, no-jargon advice. Losing your job is stressful enough, and finances may be tight for a while, so choosing the right solicitor so that you don’t end up out of pocket is more important than ever if you find yourself in this situation.


“I’ll get around to it – life gets in the way and I have been busy”

Deciding to make a Will is one of the most important decisions you can make and should be a priority but life has a habit of getting in the way! That’s why we will make the whole process as efficient and smooth as possible. We can usually turn a Will around in less than a week.

A properly drafted and executed Will ensures that your wishes are made known to those left behind and gives you control of where your money, property and possessions will go. If you die before making a Will you will have died ‘intestate’ and your estate will be distributed under the intestacy rules in accordance with the Administration of Estates Act. This may mean that someone in your family that you did not wish to inherit will do so by operation of law.

Professional Negligence

Broadly speaking, professional negligence occurs where a professional (such as a solicitor) fails to perform their responsibilities to the required standard and that failure results in damage or loss to their client, for example missing a time limit for issuing Court proceedings or Employment Tribunal proceedings. A claim in professional negligence can be based on both negligent acts and omissions.

Professional negligence is a complex area of law and a number of requirements need to be satisfied in order for you (the claimant) to be able to bring a successful professional negligence claim.

Due to strict time limits, it is important that you speak to a solicitor straight away to discuss whether you have a professional negligence case or not.

At DSM Legal Solicitors we specialise in professional negligence so call 01925 937070 today for a free, confidential chat. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

My experience from start to finish with DSM has been excellent. Diane was very responsive to all of my emails and telephone calls and went above and beyond in helping me. I would highly recommend this solicitors for its professional advice and realism. Unlike many solicitors I felt they not only listened but cared too. The pricing was very fair and they don’t try and push legal jargon that no one understands but keeps it clear and concise. I would definitely use them again.
