Personal Injury

Shanahans Solicitors has a specialist Personal Injury department led by Domenico Nigliazzo who has extensive experience in dealing with all types of personal injury claims.

People unfortunately have accidents and suffer injuries in all types of different situations. You may be out in your car, in work, walking along the pavement or simply out shopping. You may also suffer injury while undergoing medical treatment. In all of these situations and many more, you may have a claim for compensation.

Domenico, who has also taught Personal Injury litigation to post graduates on the Legal Practice Course, is dedicated to ensuring that you get the compensation that you deserve. Domenico and his team will handle your claim in a friendly, sympathetic and understanding manner.

Domenico is assisted by trainee solicitor Zac Zac Nicholas who is a personal injury specialist./span>
