Solicitor - Health & Injury
If you are seriously injured in an accident through no fault of your own, I will use my 30 years’ experience to build the strongest personal injury claim for you. I can advise and assist you through rehabilitation following injury, obtaining interim payments whenever possible. I will engage the most appropriate case manager and instruct the best experts for your case. If your work and career has been affected, I will build a case for you that claims all financial losses.
I am based in Sevenoaks, Kent but work throughout England and Wales. I receive referrals from solicitors who don’t undertake personal injury claims. I also take over ongoing cases where clients have become unhappy with the way their case is progressing.
I am a personal injury specialist acting for clients who have suffered life changing and catastrophic injuries. I conduct a wide range of cases, including:
Throughout the course of my career, I have seen time and again how destructive a serious accident can be – both for the injured person and their loved ones. Not only are there physical and psychological injuries, there are financial injuries too.
It is my duty to secure the support my clients’ need. Often this means guiding them through the rehabilitation phase. Given my long-standing role as a personal injury solicitor, I can advise which therapies are best suited to which injuries – including traumatic brain injuries. This ensures my clients have access to the right medical care going forward, expediting their recovery process and making their lives as comfortable as possible.
I am also acutely aware of the financial harm an accident can have. Many of my clients are unable to go back to work, or can only return in a reduced capacity. Sometimes their injuries mean that while they can resume their current role, the advancement of their career is no longer possible. This can result in a range of further damages, such as the loss of salary, pension, overtime and bonuses.
Where the injured person has sadly died, the relatives of the deceased often have a financial dependency and services dependency claim. These can be significant in value, and it is important to safeguard their future financial security. The same goes for accidents which happen abroad, where damages are often assessed according to the laws of the country where the accident occurred.
When I act on behalf of injured persons, or the relatives of those who have died, I take all these factors into consideration. This allows me to assess the true impact the accident has had on their lives. I then use my legal expertise, and instruct the help of leading experts, to obtain justice for those who have been injured through no fault of their own.
I am also known for running cases which other solicitors do not want to take, perhaps because issues such as liability, contributory negligence and causation are in dispute. I use my skills as a personal injury solicitor to assess the prospects of success on an ongoing basis, and to achieve the best possible outcome for the client.
“I thank Philip Scarles, of MW Solicitors for his incredibly hard work. I found Philip to be a diligent, methodical and personable solicitor. He worked tirelessly on my personal injury claim where we managed to reach an amicable settlement with the opposing party. The settlement amount we managed to gain far exceeded the amount I had initially thought I could get. He was not only professional but also easy to work with and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him for any personal injury claim” Chim Noov.
