London Personal Injury Lawyers
All too often, the negligence of one London resident can have serious repercussions for many other people when their wrongful actions lead to injury-causing accidents. Even if only one person sustains a physical injury because of someone else’s wrongful conduct, the accident can have a negative effect on their personal and professional relationships.
Injured accident survivors often rely on their family members for emotional and financial support after sustaining serious injuries. Plus, the injuries sustained by accident survivors could impact their ability to complete the duties of their jobs, jeopardizing their professional lives and career goals.
Sustaining an unexpected injury in a traumatic accident can cause London residents to encounter all kinds of problems, many of which may seem unmanageable. Cohen Highley LLP have experience providing effective and innovative legal solutions to the injured victims of serious accidents. Our team of specialists recognize how issues arising from personal injuries can affect an entire family, and appreciate our clients’ needs for a timely and effective resolution to their cases.

Accidents like these are, unfortunately, common occurrences in the London area.

Furthermore, our London personal injury lawyers have handled injury claims resulting from workplace accidents, medical malpractice, accidents caused by defective products, and violent crimes, including assaults, batteries, and other forms of abuse.
The injuries sustained by the survivors of traumatic situations like these can range in severity from mild to debilitating. Even injuries that appear to be negligible in the immediate aftermath of a traumatic accident could have severe effects later in the recovery process. All areas of an accident victim’s life can be impacted by the injuries they have sustained, including:
- Head injuries

In addition to the physical injuries often sustained by the victims of traumatic accidents, London residents who have been hurt because of someone else’s negligence often develop issues related to their mental health. Surviving a serious accident, physical assault, or other unexpected, injurious situation can be traumatizing. The process of recovery can be long, demoralizing, and lonely. In many instances, the injured survivors of serious accidents develop severe mental health issues, including:
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Sleep disorders
- And more
If you were injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our London personal injury lawyers may be able to help you pursue a civil claim so that you can obtain compensation for your injuries.

Certain injuries resulting from traumatic accidents might qualify you to receive certain types of insurance coverage.
