Claim Today Solicitors is not like other law firms. We champion our clients, backing them throughout their cases. This passionate dedication to client service, in response to injustices faced by claimants in the past, gives us the edge.
Claim Today Solicitors is synonymous with reliable, fast claims. For almost 20 years, we have offered award-winning service to clients across the UK, rapidly evolving to become one of the leading national firms in the country. While the legal sector has changed, often minimising the compensation claimants recieve, we are proud to still offer Claim Today isn’t like other law firms. Our drive to support our clients and offer service excellence in response to injustices faced by claimants in the past gives us the edge. A Legal 500 firm, we will always fight for maximum compensation for our clients.
Our Origins & Ethos
Claim Today was established in 1999 in response to the expensive, poor quality legal services available to claimants at the time. Those who had suffered accidents faced heavy deductions from national claim providers, which left them with very little to show for their claim.
We decided this was unacceptable, and launched with a simple mission: to offer a legal service that championed claimants, and helps them receive the compensation they deserve.
Many of our clients have suffered serious injury as a result of conditions they had no control over. We do not believe you deserve to be penalised for accidents that take place in the workplace or in public spaces.
It is our mission to defend victims of non-fault accidents wherever they take place. We never work on behalf of defendants or insurance companies. Claim Today Solicitors remains dedicated to our simple ethos:
- Exceptional client service with top solicitors and medical professionals
- Promoting links between business and the wider community
This mission was well recieved and we grew rapidly to become a leading provider of legal aid for personal injury claims across the UK.
Our clients responded well to the service they received and Claim Today grew quickly, becoming the go-to service for personal injury claims, particularly in the Asian community across the UK. We began to offer our services nationally, serving clients from all corners of the country, and our tag-line ‘don’t delay, claim today’ became a by-word for high-quality claims service.
Over the years we have been supported by some big names, including Bollywood giant, Shah Rukh Khan, renowed presenter Reham Khan, and more recently Pakistani celebrity, Nadia Hussain.
We began to offer legal service in many languages, including all South Asian languages from Punjabi and Hindi to Urdu and Tamil. Offering easy access to legal services for non-English speaking clients has become a cornerstone of Claim Today, with the introduction of well-reputed Polish and Slovak departments following soon after.
Over the years we have been working to continually improve our service, and the rewards for our clients have been clear. We have received a wide number of accredications and awards, ranging from Legal 500 Recommendation and being listed as one of the Times 100 Best Small Firms to Work For, to awards for our charity work, such as the Big Tick and National CSR Awards. In 2014 we became the first law firm to recieve the Customer Service Excellence Award from the Government Cabinet Office. Click here for more about our Awards and Accreditations.
Our brand has evolved with us over the years
New Offices and a Growing Team
In developing to become a wider UK practice, we established a new base with larger offices at the heart of Birmingham City Centre‘s Colmore Business District. From here we conduct our work on claims across the country, with a large team of experienced personal injury and medical negligence solicitors handling all kinds of claims cases. We pride ourselves on our diverse team, who offer exceptional service to our clients. In 2013, we decided to reward their hard work with lower hours at the same pay and have never turned back since.
Beyond offering award-winning service to our clients, our team have been heavily involved in our community outreach and charity programmes, laying the foundations for the development of our rapidly-expanding business in the community initiative, DBS Heart.
Clock on to Safety with DBS Heart
DBS Heart began as a series of office-based fundraisers and charitable donations, including donating our old computers to charity, bag packs, sponsored walks and runs, and other one-off activities to raise awareness for local charities. We focussed on a cause that was close to our hearts – helping to prevent road accident related injuries (by far the most common claims we work on) through education and supporting national accident charities. We partnered with several of these, including Break and Midlands Air Ambulance, and eventually approached Birmingham City Council to assist them with a more involved road safety education program.
This evolved into Clock on to Safety, a series of workshops delivered by our solicitors in schools, with accompanying resources to encourage children to be responsible on the road. In 2013 we joined forces with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra to deliver a Road Safety Concert to over 3,000 school children, educating them on principles of road safety through music and interaction in a stage spectacular. Our road safety projects have gone from strength to strength, and in 2015-16 we have been working alongside our partners to foster greater involvement from communities. We teamed up with St Clare’s Primary School, working with a team of parents, teachers, and children, to produce another stage show, StreetWize. Clips from the filmed production will be made available to schools through an online platform as part of a pack of learning resources and lesson plans, so that workshops can be delivered in over 300 schools across Birmingham.
As the company grew, we decided that we wanted to do more to give back to the communities we serve and promote better relations between businesses and their communities. In 2015, DBS Heart grew to encompass these aims and became a Community Interest Company (CIC) in its own right. Read more about DBS Heart on the DBS Heart Website.
We now offer award-winning claims in all areas to clients across the UK. Now our service is nationally recognised for its excellence both by clients and the wider business sector. In 2017 we won Feefo’s ‘Trusted Service Award’ and won acclaim from the National Peer Awards for Excellence. We have expanded to offer our services to more communities across the UK, including the Polish, Slovak and Romanian communities, with multi-lingual specialist advisors.
