How can Morr & Co assist if you have been injured in an accident at work?

At Morr & Co, our personal injury solicitors understand that each case is bespoke and treat it as such, ensuring that our advice is individually tailored to our client and their rehabilitation and lifestyle needs.

To enable early access to treatment and rehabilitation, we strive to obtain early interim payments for clients and believe in involving rehabilitation managers and case managers at an early stage. We have relationships with high quality rehabilitation providers so we can arrange private and prompt treatment when applicable.

We also take time to get to know our clients’ families to gain a strong understanding of their family dynamics and needs. This is crucial as a life changing injury can affect the whole family, not just our client.

We work with a very strong body of experts in areas including medicine, accommodation, finance, assistive technology, prosthetics, care/assistance and employment, along with barristers who we instruct based on their experience with specific types of injury cases.

Several of the barristers we work with come from a medical background which further strengthens the technical ability of the entire legal team. We have worked with many of these experts for years, bringing a ‘tried and tested’ and collaborative approach to our cases, which can go a long way to helping clients feel comfortable with the claims process.

We are particularly good at valuing claims. We strive to identify even the most unusual financial losses to ensure that our clients are not only restored to the financial position that they would have been in had they not sustained injury, but that they also have funds available for any future financial losses and, importantly, future treatment and care they may require.

At what is likely to be a very stressful time in your life, we provide an incredibly supportive and sympathetic service, ensuring that you have easy and direct access to your legal team including, where necessary, visits to your home and frequent updates on the progress of your case.

We offer a free, no-obligation initial assessment of your claim with one of our experienced specialists. This gives us a chance to assess the strength of your case and, where appropriate, arrange suitable legal cost funding for you.

With our extensive court and advocacy experience we can successfully manage client expectations and prevent the process from adding to what are already difficult circumstances.

We support injury charities such as Headway and The Spinal Injuries Association to signpost our clients to their non-legal services. As members of APIL (Association of Personal Injury Lawyers) we strive to protect the interests of those who have sustained an injury as a result of an accident/negligence, and we feel very passionately that everyone should have appropriate access to justice.
