Lorraine Finney         Solicitor

I am a Member of the Law Society and the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and have been a qualified solicitor since 1992.
In April 2021 I became an APIL Accredited Personal Injury Specialist with Senior Litigation status.
I have worked in different parts of the country: Yeovil, Portsmouth, Stoke-on-Trent, and since 1997 I have been living and working in Derbyshire.
Since qualifying, I have successfully settled over 2,500 personal injury cases and have a wealth of experience in dealing with serious road traffic accidents, accidents at work, and accidents in public places.  
Every personal injury claim has 3 main elements:
  • liability (who is to blame)
  • quantum (the value of the claim to include compensation for your injuries and financial losses)
  • a 3 years’ time limit for claiming
During our initial free consultation I will provide guidance on the above and advise whether you have a claim for compensation. 
Legal Aid is no longer available for accident cases but I will also advise you on the alternative ways of funding your claim (e.g. paying privately, Legal Expenses Insurance, Conditional Fee Agreements ("no win, no fee" agreements) etc).
I have devoted my career to helping the innocent victims of accidents and am passionate about securing the best outcomes for my clients in a professional and speedy manner.
I am now based in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, and work through Scott-Moncrieff, a major London based law firm with a national network of independent solicitors. As one of the UK’s most respected law firms, Scott-Moncrieff offers legal experts from around the country working at the highest levels.
