Bartletts Solicitors’ Walton Vale office was opened in 1984 with the aim of creating a good out of town office to match the best in the City Centre and service the entirety of Liverpool and Merseyside.
We take on claims in several different areas of the law which our other offices do not handle, one such area being injuries abroad. Many people do not know that it is possible to claim compensation for a holiday injury or illness if the trip was bought through a UK registered tour operator. Furthermore, if a holidaymaker is injured during an activity organised by the operator, then it is also possible to claim compensation in the UK. Slips and trips in hotels, food poisoning and road accidents on touring packages are some of the injury abroad claims we see most frequently. Find out more:
Our Walton Vale office also specialises in criminal injuries claims. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authorities (CICA) is a government-run scheme offering compensation to victims of violent crime in England, Scotland and Wales. It is possible to claim criminal injury compensation from CICA for both physical and mental injuries, provided the injury is worth over £1,000 (there is a preset scale of compensation awards). While claims can take one to two years to process, the scheme deals with more than 30,000 applications every year and has a high satisfaction rating of 95% from applicants (2018/19). Find out more:
Hit and run traffic accidents is another area in which our Walton Vale office has significant experience. These accidents can be made complicated if the driver is uninsured, drives off without leaving their details or gives false details. We use the DVLA and an enquiry agent to attempt to trace the driver, otherwise we can submit a claim to the Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB), an organisation set up to provide compensation for victims of uninsured and untraced drivers.

Bartletts’ Walton Vale office also handles claims for accidents at work, including back injuries from lifting and industrial diseases; slips, trips and falls in public places like shops and shopping centres; injuries sustained at hairdressers and beauty salons; and claims on behalf of tenants injured in unsafe rented accommodation.
Over the years, we have championed many causes and supported clients back to full health. Many claims lead to things being changed for the better, as well as compensation. We have grown by recommendation and the loyalty of our clients.
We are happy to conduct home or hospital visits as and when required. We are here to listen, easy to talk to, provide free advice and are always ready to act. All claims are handled by fully qualified solicitors who are experts in the field of personal injury claims to ensure the best results.
