The choice is yours, but we have never had a case with employer’s offering being adequate to the injury. In many cases the compensation obtained by legal action exceeds the employer’s offering multiple times. If you accept the employer’s offering and sign the corresponding papers restricting your rights to sue, you may lose your opportunity to get adequate compensation.
Although the legal proceedings may take years, your employer may assume liability in a few months, and if liability is assumed we can request an interim payment.
The chief lawyer at our company is British, but her legal assistants are Lithuanians, so you’ll have an option to receive all communication from us in Lithuanian.
There was such a case indeed, but likely the firm was not registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). We are registered with the SRA and under their strict supervision – you can verify this at the Law Society website. Moreover, our lawyer and all her legal assistants are registered with the SRA and CILEX, so you can file a grievance with them should we make any breach of law.
That’s a myth: solicitors are under very strict regulation by the SRA and CILEX, and any malpractice leads to very severe sanctions.

It depends on the specific situation as well as severity of injury: it can be within a year, while some cases take a few years.
The compensation consists of general damages (injury estimates are available online) and special damages (financial losses – often these comprise the major part of the compensation amount and exceed the general damages many times). For us to win the largest amount possible for you, it is crucial to gather all the evidence available. This can take a while. Our aim is to do everything reasonably possible in order to maximize your compensation, because your injury can be compensated only once in the lifetime.
We will do everything on your behalf, all you’ll need to do will be to confirm you agree with the statements and sign documents, which we will explain you in full.
One of our key advantages is that our team includes Lithuanians who have been improving their professional skills in England, which enables us to give any answers and explanations in Lithuanian. However, please note that all the documentation must be in English, pursuant to the English law. Should you wish, we will be able to provide you with translations of certain documents (such as medical records) into Lithuanian.
This will depend on the quality and quantity of evidence supporting your claim. About 95% of the cases are settled out of court.
We will discuss your claim in detail and explain what you should do to help yourself and what not to do so as not to aggravate your situation, because there are many things in the legal process that depend on you. Our professionals are experts in the job they do, so if you fully cooperate you can rest assured we will do everything reasonably possible to maximise your compensation.
We do understand the effects injuries make on people’s lives, so yes, you can return to your home country. Should there be a need for you to come and meet the forensic medicine expert, we will help you to obtain travel tickets.
Every employee in England is protected against mistreatment by employer while exercising his/her rights to be compensated, so should you experience any discrimination at work it will give you grounds to take additional legal action for discrimination and victimisation at work. Therefore it is not very realistic that your employer could act so foolishly and risk facing additional legal action
