Mercury Legal Solicitors – About Us


Mercury Legal Online is a trading name of Russell Worth Solicitors, a personal injury law firm specialising in:
Medical/Clinical negligence
Industrial diseases
Catastrophic injuries
Accident claims
Military injuries
Unlike some law firms that’s all we do. This does mean that our solicitors are specialists in their field and each has a wealth of experience that they will bring to bear when helping you secure the compensation that you deserve.

Mercury Legal was established in 2007 initially as a small niche industrial disease practice but we have grown over the years as demand for our services increased. In 2011 we opened our clinical negligence department based upon the same ethos as we have always applied to our diseases cases, namely small caseloads run by highly experienced staff who have the time to get to know our clients and fully understand their needs. By keeping our caseloads small not only does it ensure that we always have time to discuss your claim with you thoroughly it also means that we can progress your case proactively. In 2021 Mercury Legal Online became part of Russell Worth Solicitors, our name may have changed but our values certainly haven’t.

While we do embrace the latest technology we also unashamedly believe in doing things what some may call the old fashioned way – we call it the right way. When it comes to claiming the compensation that you are entitled to then there is simply no substitute for experience and knowledge, we have both in abundance.

When you call us we will talk through your circumstances and give you our expert opinion on your case. You will be under no obligation whatsoever to proceed with a claim, if you decide that you don’t want to go ahead then that is entirely your decision.

Personal injury law can be extremely complex and demanding. As a specialist practice we cannot help everybody who needs our assistance while ensuring that we can still give the personal and professional service we have built our reputation upon. We have therefore teamed up with a small number of hand picked law firms to pool our resources and expertise in order to ensure that we are there for you when you need us most. When you contact Mercury Legal Online your enquiry will be handled directly by either Russell Worth Solicitors or one of our carefully selected partner firms.
