If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you could be eligible for compensation in respect of your injury and the financial loss you may have incurred.
Our specialist solicitors have experience in running a wide range of accident claims, including:
Road Traffic Accident Claims
Road traffic accidents come in many different forms, including:
- Bus accidents
- Car accidents
- Motorbike or Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian claims
- Motor Insurance Bureau claims when the driver responsible was not insured
Injuries can range from bruises and whiplash to catastrophic injuries.
Whether you were the driver, a passenger or a pedestrian injured by the actions of a road-user, our lawyers may be able to assist you.
Claims can also be brought on behalf of children who have been injured in road traffic accidents, and we can guide you through the claim and the infant settlement approval procedure.
Accident at Work Claims
Employers have a duty of care under Health and Safety Law to ensure their staff are safe from harm. This applies to all types of employment, from office to construction work, but may be particularly relevant to workers who are exposed to dangerous substances and equipment during the course of their employment.
Our lawyers may be able to assist you if you have sustained an injury at work, including injuries resulting from:
- Trips and slips
- Faulty equipment
- Inadequate risk assessments
- Manual handling
Asbestos-Related Illnesses and Industrial Disease
Long-term exposure to certain substances, or working with machinery without proper Personal Protective Equipment can lead to serious illnesses and conditions through no fault of your own.
If you have recently been informed that you are suffering from an industrial disease, our experienced lawyers may be able to assist you in obtaining the compensation you deserve, including in claims for the following:
- Asbestos-related lung cancer
- Pleural plaques
- Repetitive strain injury
- Noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus
- Vibration white finger
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
Accident in a Public Place
Businesses and local authorities have a duty of care to individuals while they are within an area they maintain. Our lawyers may be able to help you if you have been injured while in any public place, including a shop, gym or street.
Manufacturers have obligations to ensure their products are safe. Products, such as medicines, food and electrical items, must be tested and meet certain safety standards.
If you or your child have been injured as the result of a product falling below the required standard, our lawyers may be able to help you claim compensation for your injuries.
Finding out a loved one has passed away is distressing enough, without the additional trauma which comes with knowing the accident wasn’t their fault and could have been avoided.
If you have recently lost a family member in these circumstances, our lawyers may be able to help you claim compensation to ensure your family does not suffer financially.
We will treat the matter sensitively and will be on hand at every step of the way.
We will take the stress of the claim off your hands, while keeping you fully informed through every step. Should specialist advice or assistance be required from a barrister, our team can instruct experienced counsel to assist with your claim when appropriate.
In the event your claim cannot be settled and progresses to court, we will arrange for an experienced advocate, whether it be a solicitor or barrister, to attend all hearings with you and put all representations to the judge on your behalf.
Depending on the facts of your case, we may be able to run your claim on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis, which will take away any financial risk to you. If your claim is successful, our fees will be paid by your opponent and we will deduct a small percentage of your damages. If your claim is unsuccessful, you will not be required to pay our fees
There are strict time-limits in place to bring personal injury claims, and you should therefore contact us today for a no obligation discussion about your accident.
The effects of a personal injury can have a devastating impact on both you and your immediate family. It is for this reason we suggest you have a will in place to ensure that your loved ones are protected. View our wills and probate services here.
