Platt and Fishwick Solicitors

Personal Injury

We have represented accident victims in and around Wigan for over 90 years winning compensation measured in millions of pounds as a result in cases ranging across the whole spectrum of injury claims, from motor accidents or accidents at work or elsewhere to product liability and industrial disease claims.


We understand how traumatic even the most apparently straightforward accident can be and that the rules and processes involved in securing proper compensation can seem daunting. Our expertise and emphasis on communication with clients means you will be taken through the process in a straightforward way with the minimum of fuss.


Pursuing a personal injury claim through a conditional fee agreement (commonly known as a “no win no fee” agreement) is the norm these days as legal aid has generally not been available to accident victims for a number of years. We offered “no win no fee” agreements to our clients as soon as we were allowed to do so and as a result have built up significant experience of pursuing cases in this way.

Personal Injury

We are not dependent on the insurance industry for our cases, or any other middle man and we will not sell you an insurance policy you do not need. We will only act in your best interests and not otherwise.


All accident claims are handled by Mark Richardson who has been a personal injury solicitor for over 20 years. He is a member of the Solicitors Regulation Authority Personal Injury Accreditation Scheme (Law Society Personal Injury Panel) and is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers – accredited as a Senior Litigator.


We offer a free initial consultation which can be at our Head Office in Wigan, at our Standish Office or at home if need be. If you have been injured as a result of an accident, it is always worth checking the position with us, even if you are not sure just how somebody else might be to blame or even if you think you may be partially to blame.
