In addition to standard CICA cases, LSA`s lawyers take up historic and complex cases, reviews and appeals, and victims of criminal convictions or the "same roof rule".

LSA can help you with your claim.  Although you do not need a solicitor to claim, it can make a great difference.  Our solicitors are experienced in helping;
  • Prepare, submit and manage applications to the CICA and follow on queries
  • With complex cases
  • With claims involving serious injuries, particular brain injuries
  • With reviews and appeals
  • Children or adults who are unable to manage their own affairs
  • Asylum seekers and trafficking victims
  • Cases involving legal issues
We may be able to give you free or cheap legal advice.  You may be able to get legal aid.  There is no legal aid for appeal hearings. but we usually do this on a "no win no fee" basis.  This means that we only charge you a fee (agreed with you beforehand) if you claim is successful.

Once you have received a settlement it may be advantageous from a benefit or tax point of view for your funds to be placed in a Trust.  LSA can help with this also.
