We understand that sustaining a serious injury is devastating. When bringing a compensation claim for your injury, it is essential that you place your trust in the most experienced legal team available.

About our specialist international injury lawyers

Our team of specialist international injury lawyers represents people from the UK who sustain life-changing or fatal injuries overseas, as well as foreign nationals who are severely injured or die following accidents in the UK.

We act for clients who sustain injuries in many different way including as a result of:

  • Accidents at work
  • Accidents at sea
  • Medical negligence
  • Film, TV and stunt accidents
  • Road traffic accidents
  • Skiing accidents
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Sports accidents (including extreme and professional sports)
  • Holiday excursions (including quad bikes and snowmobiles)

Our lawyers handle smaller caseloads than other law firms to ensure we provide a proactive and highly focused legal service for our clients’ complex injury cases.

Accredited serious injury and accident abroad specialists

While other firms have lawyers who focus on either serious injury claims or international aspects of the law, we are unique in having a team with dual focus and expertise.

Stewarts has more solicitors with the APIL accreditation in Accidents Abroad than any other firm and are the only firm in the UK with solicitors who hold dual APIL accreditations in both Accidents Abroad and Spinal Cord Injury and/or Brain injuries.

Our partners are also recognised as leading individuals in Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500, the two leading independent legal directories.

Our team of specialist international injury lawyers has successfully represented clients in many complex and ground-breaking cases in England and Wales and in courts overseas. We have recovered hundreds of millions of pounds in compensation for our clients.

We have also developed links with like-minded specialist lawyers worldwide and work with them to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

Obtaining a second opinion

We understand how devastating it is to sustain a life-changing injury or lose a loved one.

In serious accident claims, you usually only get one opportunity to achieve justice and financial security. It is essential that you place your trust in the most expert and experienced legal team available.

We are frequently approached to take over existing claims due to our expertise. Likewise, we are often asked to work alongside a lawyer in another country who has already been instructed but who has less experience than Stewarts in understanding the impact of the client’s life-changing injuries and related losses. Transferring a case to Stewarts is usually quick, simple and achievable within a few weeks.

If you have an existing claim but have concerns or queries about how things are progressing, our team of specialist international injury lawyers would be happy to discuss this with you free of charge and without obligation.

If you require assistance, please contact us or request a call from one of our lawyers.

Life Beyond Injury

We have created a series of films that tell the stories of our clients who suffered traumatic injuries. Each individual has had to face their own challenges in order to lead a fulfilling life.

By sharing these stories, we hope that recently injured people can see that with the right support they too can overcome adversity and continue to lead full and active lives.
