Welcome to Barratts

The leading personal injury and clinical negligence solicitors for the Midlands

Clinical Negligence

You can talk to Alison, Julie or Emma about your claim for Clinical Negligence. We are all experienced lawyers and Clinical Negligence Panel Members. This means a “senior” lawyer has “close control over the case” which makes us “stand out”. It is really important that you get the right expert advice when you are making a claim. Our team can promise that this is what you will get. We provide “absolutely individual and personal attention”. If you cannot manage your affairs, often because of  brain damage, our Court of Protection Department  is also on hand to assist.

Solicitor, Jay Tomlinson, joined us in 2018 and heads up our Court of Protection team, supported by solicitor Rebecca Tomes. Jay also advises on Special Education Needs (SEN) and review of EHCPs. 

Your needs come first.

Personal Injury

Your claim for personal injury matters. That is why you will meet David, Ed and Lesley who are highly experienced solicitors. We have years of experience which means our advice is “spot on”.  We are “not shy to take on more…difficult cases” and we “advise the client all the way through”. This is the reason that Barratts Solicitors has a formidable reputation in Personal Injury. We are totally committed to getting the right result for you. If you need help to manage your affairs, usually because of a head injury, our Court of Protection Department is on hand to help you.

Our SEN solicitor, Jay, can also help with advice for clients with special needs at school or college.

We offer a personal service to suit your needs.

We’re here to help

If you aren’t quite sure where to start, what to ask or who can help, don’t worry. We know it can be a bit confusing when you first start dealing with claims. That’s why we take time to listen, understand and explain.  Just arrange a convenient time and we can get started.
