Meet Our Team

Girlings Personal Injury Claims are just one a handful of firms in Kent who specialise in both personal injury and clinical negligence claims.

A list of our numerous accreditations can be seen at the bottom of the page, demonstrating our proven competence in the areas of personal injury and medical negligence.

We have many years of experience in dealing with all types of claim, from relatively low value claims to highly complex, multi-million pound claims. The importance of seeking advice from a solicitor specialising in personal injury or medical negligence cannot be overestimated. There are several firms who “dabble” in this area of law, but it takes a specialist to achieve the full amount of compensation to which a victim of negligence is entitled.

We have access to advice from highly skilled medical experts who help us to maximise our clients’ claims for compensation. We understand that our clients often need compensation to help them pay the mortgage if they have been left unable to work, or to fund care or vital treatment for their injuries. Where possible, we try to get an early admission of liability from the person who caused the injury, which enables us to ask their insurer for money up front. This money can help to fund anything from household expenses to care, equipment, therapy and other vital treatment.

We are a sensitive and understanding team who fully appreciate that recovering from, or living with, a health problem can be extremely stressful. We do all that we can to ease the burden on our clients and to help them get their lives back on track.
