A friend of mine fell over in a restaurant the other day. She tripped up a small step, and as is the law of the sod, fell flat on her face damaging her knee badly, as well as her shoulder and back. When she told me, I jokingly said, “where there’s blame there’s a claim!” and we had a good old giggle about it.

Except that now, a week or so later, she is still in agony with her knee. She can’t bend it properly, and can’t walk without pain. She’s not been back to work properly since her accident, and now the idea of getting compensation for the pain she’s in isn’t quite such a joke.

Leo Claims are a specialist team of personal injury solicitors  with over forty years’ experience in accident claims and personal injury. They’ve worked with over 100,000 clients, helping them to claim the compensation they deserve on a no win, no fee basis.

The fact of the matter is that if you’re injured or ill, in whatever way, that can have a massive impact on your life. As a single parent, if something happened to me that made me unable to work even for a day, S and I would be out of pocket and I would struggle to recoup that loss.

Leo Claims deal with all types of personal injury, including road traffic accidents,  personal injury, medical negligence and accidents at work. Their no win, no fee basis means you’re not out of pocket if you try to claim compensation but are not successful.

My friend is not one of those people who enjoys having to sit still; she’s a busy woman spinning a lot of plates. Having to sit on the sofa with her leg up is not her cup of tea at all; I think I’ll pass her the number for Leo Claims!

Well hopefully you'll never need their help but it's good to know there are helpful firms out there if needed! #WeekendBlogHop

What puts me off any of these claims companies are their cheesy adverts. They always too well dressed and far too smiley for my liking. But I can see why people sometimes need to use them. <br /><br />If your friends knee was better in a day or two then no harm done, but as you pointed out not everyone has weeks to recover from an unnecessary injury. I hope your friend gets back to spinning her
