Suffering a serious injury is devastating. It can be a traumatic time as you come to terms with the impact of your accident.

A life changing injury is one of the most difficult moments you can face. Knowing how much uncertainty this can bring, our role is to help you secure the best possible future for you and your family. Our goal is to help our clients lead full and active lives.

Due to the complexity of these cases, we limit the number of cases our lawyers take on so we can ensure that yours can receive the full attention it deserves. We only act for clients who have sustained serious life-changing injury, in particular spinal cord injury and brain injury.

In 2022, we helped 51 of our clients secure damages awards of £1 million or more. Together those 51 clients received more than £240 million in compensation, an average of more than £4.7 million per client.

If you or a family member have been injured or you would like a second opinion on an ongoing case, please contact us.

Examples of our work

Grace was just 22 years old when she was involved in a car accident that left her with a spinal cord injury, rendering her tetraplegic. She underwent spinal surgery and was later transferred to specialist site Oaksey House, where she received intensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy funded through her personal injury claim.

During the claim, Grace received interim payments which enabled her to purchase a property and adapt it to meet her long-term accommodation needs. The claim eventually settled for an eight figure sum which will help Grace provide for her adapted needs throughout her life. In 2019, Grace married her fiancé Nick and was able to walk down the aisle with her ReWalk device.

“Stewarts get the results they set out to achieve,” Grace says in her testimonial. “The settlement has made a massive difference to my life since my injury.”

More personal experiences

We’ve 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.
