If you are looking for friendly, professional legal advice, along with welcome savings, BGA members receive a wide range of discounts and benefits from Morrish Solicitors, giving you peace of mind.
In the unfortunate event that you suffer an injury, you may be entitled to damages for this and the recovery of any financial loss caused as a consequence. As a BGA member you are entitled to free legal representation and will keep 100% of any damages recovered.
This is a major benefit to BGA members as most claimants who pursue a personal injury claim will be required to pay 25% of their damages to their solicitor to cover costs.
At Morrish Solicitors, you will also be represented by a solicitor with expertise representing individuals injured whilst working in the equine and racing industry (including strict liability claims arising under the Animals Act 1971) and will be provided with straightforward advice on the merits of a claim. We have successfully represented and supported BGA members in numerous cases, including those whose cases have been rejected or abandoned by other firms and would not otherwise have recovered damages.
Our focus is not just on the recovery of damages, but also the obtaining of early rehabilitation treatment and support members may need to maximise recovery and to return to work as soon as possible.
Whilst we know that the priority for any member suffering an injury is to get back to work and normality as quickly as possible, there are sadly some who suffer career ending and life changing injuries. In such circumstances, we aim to recover the damages that will provide the long term financial security and professional support that is likely to be required.
Further, the benefit of funding and legal representation does not just apply to accidents at work. Whatever the circumstances of the injury, we can provide expert advice and representation, as we have done for many members over the years.
We are also happy to extend our legal advice and representation to family and friends referred to us.
If you have been injured and would like advice on whether you have a claim, please contact John Morrison or call our team on 033 3344 9600.
In addition to our no win, no fee personal injury service (which is also available to family members) and free half hour legal consultation*, as a BGA member, you can also enjoy discounts on the following legal services:
