Personal Injury Law


Stephanie Lee our personal injury specialist solicitor is Accredited as a Senior Litigator by the Association of Personal Injury lawyers (APIL).  She is the only lawyer in Clitheroe holding this recognised specialist accreditation.

Stephanie Lee has over 21 years experience representing Claimants injured in accidents.

Personal injury claims have attracted some negative publicity. This is unfortunate because many innocent people do suffer genuine injury and financial losses through no fault of their own and the law exists to give them the protection and the compensation they deserve.

At Lewis Mitchell Solicitors we assess the accident claim and identify whether the client has a legitimate and winnable case to present. If so, then we will do everything we can to bring about a successful outcome – one that properly compensates the client for whatever injury or financial losses that he or she has sustained. We are happy to act on a no win no fee basis for cases we take on.

Personal Injury Claims

These are some of the accident cases we deal with

  • Accidents in the workplace
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Trips, slips and falls in commercial or public spaces
  • Whiplash injury claims
  • faulty products
  • children’s accidents

Personal Injury Claim Criteria

In order to be entitled to make a legitimate personal injury claim, the following criteria should apply:
You suffered the injury or illness through no fault of your own, and:
The incident was caused by an individual or organisation that failed to take reasonable care for your safety, and:

  • The incident took place within the last three years, and:
  • The injury or illness caused you pain or distress, or:
  • It caused you to entail a financial loss (e.g. through being unable to work) or:
  • It caused you to entail exceptional expenses (e.g.  the costs of medical care, adaptations or equipment required during your recovery) or:
  • It caused your quality of life to suffer (e.g. it resulted in a disability of some kind)

Injuries may be physical or psychological and may have temporary or permanent effects.
