Scott Rees & Co is a personal injury solicitor firm based in Skelmersdale, Lancashire. As a personal injury solicitor, this means that we work only with claims involving injury caused by accidents. These injuries are mostly physical, but can be psychological too.
A claim is a demand for monetary reward to recompense for the damages that you have received in person, in property and financially as the result of an accident that was not your fault.
Our job as a solicitor is to determine the liability for the accident. This basically means that we have to find out who was to blame for the accident, and if we can prove that the fault of the accident lies with someone else, even partially, then you may have a case for compensation.
Introduction to Scott Rees & Co
Scott Rees & Co was founded in 1992 by Peter Scott and Daniel Rees. They wanted to provide a service that could offer victims of accidents caused by someone else’s negligence with an access to justice. You shouldn’t have to suffer injury, financial loss and property damage because of the carelessness of someone else. Peter and Daniel had one simple aim and vision with Scott Rees & Co, and that was to provide the best personal injury legal service, advice and care for accident victims in the UK.
The size of the company has grown considerably since it was founded in 1992. We now have more than 250 employees spread across the different departments in the firm. As we are a specialist personal injury firm, we have separate departments for our solicitors who specialise in medical negligence, industrial disease, road traffic accidents, employers negligence, public liability and more. Outside of personal injury, we have workforce departments in human resources, marketing, information technology, costs and accounts.

A stress-free claims service

No win no fee solicitors
We were one of the earliest personal injury solicitors to become predominantly a no win no fee claims firm. As such, most of our claims abide by the no win no fee structure. A no win no fee policy means that we do not charge you any money for our service should we be unsuccessful with assisting your claim for compensation. For the few claims that do not follow the no win no fee basis, we will let you know at the beginning of your claim.
Being a Lancashire-based solicitor means we are ideal for the local people of this region, see Locations.
