Personal injury * insurance claim * no win no fee solicitors * personal injury claim * compensation * personal injury at work * medical negligence * road traffic injury claim
Personal injury claims tend fall within the categories listed below and whilst some personal injury claim solicitors will handle all types of injury compensation claim, they generally specialise in one or two areas of injury compensation. It is best to have a specialist personal injury solicitor helping you, as they will be fully aware of the best ways to handle your type of injury claim.
Road Traffic Injury
If you were the driver of a car, passenger, cyclist, motorcyclist or a pedestrian hit by a vehicle, your personal injury claim will fall into this category. Even if you have been injured by a 'hit and run' driver, we will still be able to help you.
Injury at Work
If you have suffered an injury whilst attending work, we can help. The injury may happened in an office or factory or shop or any other work location connected with your employer. The types of injury may range from a minor fall on a slippery floor, over a carelessly placed box, slipping on spilt oil, through to serious injury caused through faulty machinery.
You may have suffered a criminal injury and been the victim of a criminal assault. We have criminal injury solicitors who specialise in criminal injury compensation claims and are able to assist you. Due to the way in which legal costs are structured, the criminal injury solicitor may charge a fee for this type of compensation claim. Legal costs would be discussed with you prior to any action being taken.
If you have been exposed to excessive noise, chemicals, asbestos or fumes, airborne particles, etc, you may be the victim of this type of industrial injury.
Slip or trip injury
A slip or trip injury typically occurs in public places such as roads, pavements, roadside kerbs, car parks, shopping precincts, universities, schools, etc. The injured victim may fall on a loose paving slab, trip over boxes outside a shop, slip on a wet surface or trip over a hole or a raised manhole cover for example. If you have suffered an injury in this way, contact us and we will try to help.
When patients visit their GP, Dentist, hospital or clinic, they do not always receive the level of professional treatment they expect. Medical procedures can be carried out incorrectly or carelessly, leaving the patient with medical complications. If it can be proved that the patient was not treated fully and in the correct medical manner, the patient may have grounds to make a medical negligence claim.
Other types of injury
Any type of injury suffered, that does not fit neatly into the above mentioned categories may still be equally valid for an injury compensation claim. If you have suffered an injury and someone else is to blame, tell us about it and we will do our best to find a specialist injury claim solicitor to help you.
