Personal Injury Claims
During the course of your life, the odds are that you'll be injured at some point. We would all like it, if these injuries simply did not occur, but sometimes the negligence of others leads to accidents and injuries that can have profound consequences for the victim. Sometimes, injuries may be down to our own carelessness or lack of awareness, but where the fault lies with a third party, you may be entitled to personal injury compensation to help you recover.
What Is Serious Injury?
Personal injuries can result from almost any accident, whether it's a slip on an icy walkway or an injury due to care home negligence. The severity of these injuries vary drastically depending upon the kind of accident, your own physical well being and any protective measures that may have been in place.
We deal with a vast number of personal injury claims where a third party has been responsible. These are often due to poor health and safety standards, negligent maintenance, or even plain ignorance in some cases. Our personal injury solicitors have been involved in cases where people have fallen on icy walkways or have fallen ill due to carbon monoxide exposure. Where such injuries occur, people need to come forward with their claim so that we can remind these companies and service providers that they have a duty to protect the public on their premises and that they should devote more time to maintaining high safety standards.
Our Personal Injury Claims Expertise
Our specialist personal injury solicitors have a wealth of experience in dealing with claims of this type and so they can consult with you to determine whether or not you have a valid claim. If you do, they can immediately work on documenting all the critical evidence for your case to ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.
The severity of your injury will largely dictate the amount of compensation that you are awarded. To help determine the value of your claim, we will assess the present impact of the accident on your health, as well as any future repercussions. We can then use this information to determine the potential costs of future health care and treatment, any equipment or medication that you may need, as well as accounting for any loss of earnings.
We specialise in a variety of personal injury claim types, including but not limited to:
Present Consequences and Far-reaching Effects
Many of the perosnal injuries we see could have been prevented if more suitable health and safety practices were in force. If you have sustained a serious injury, knowing it could have easily been avoided, you will likely find it frustrating and sad. When faced with long-term consequences, this can manifest as stress and even depression. We appreciate that the consequences of these accidents are more than physical, as financial and psychological issues can also make an already bad situation almost unbearable.
Many individuals find it hard to come forward with a personal injury claim. Some will have no hard feelings against the responsible party, whilst some will write it off as an unavoidable accident. What we do, is we claim your compensation and our costs from the liable party's insurer, not from them directly; so even if the business responsible has closed down, we can still trace their insurance policy and make a claim against it.
Where the company still operates, a personal injury claim can be just the 'kick' they need to re-visit their health and safety procedures. This can help to protect current and future visitors so that they can be spared a similar fate.
We pride ourselves on our provision of first-class legal advice and support. Our team of specialist personal injury solicitors have a wealth of expertise and knowledge that you will be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
