The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal injury compensation claims are a complex area of law. It is essential that you employ an accredited personal injury specialist to ensure your claim is dealt with in the most professional manner, heightening your chance of success.

The Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) was established in 1990 as a non-profit organisation providing official recognition to solicitors, barristers and legal executives specialising in personal injury law.

The principal aims of APIL are to provide legal assistance to those that have suffered a personal injury or illness through no fault of their own and, to campaign for an improved law to help these people. They now have more than 5,000 members.

Experienced personal injury lawyers

All accredited APIL lawyers have at least five years' experience of handling personal injury claims and many specialise in particular fields such as medical negligence, product liability or child injury. Depending on the amount of experience they have, they are known as Senior Litigators, Fellows or Senior Fellows.

When selecting a personal injury solicitor approved by APIL, you will have the opportunity to ask what level of accreditation they have and the level of experience that they have with specific types of personal injury cases. Read more about types of personal injury.

An initial consultation with an APIL lawyer is usually free from cost. This will allow you to discover whether you have an eligible compensation case. You will also be advised about funding; although legal aid is not available for most types of personal injury cases, many personal injury solicitors work on a no win no fee basis.
