The police have a special role in society to enforce the law and protect us, but they are not above the law. In certain instances they can overstep their boundaries and legal powers, causing personal injury to a member of the public.
I was a passenger in a car involved in a road traffic accident and suffered serious injuries to my right shoulder, my elbow and scarring to my forehead. I was unable to work for a long time. First Personal Injury dealt with my case from the outset. I never expected that I would receive £21,191.00 of compensation for my injuries and other losses I had as a result of the accident. I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and would definitely recommend First Personal Injury to anyone who wants to make an accident claim.
