If you’ve been injured in an accident and somebody else was responsible, then you may have a good claim for compensation. With many years’ experience behind them, our specialist personal injury lawyers know a great deal about injury claims and will be happy to offer advice on the likely value of yours.
Accidents at work
In the UK, all employers have a legal obligation to ensure their workers can carry out their jobs in a safe and healthy environment. However, safety standards in some workplaces still fall well short of the required levels, with workers often exposed to avoidable risks. If you’ve suffered a workplace injury due to your employer’s negligence, then you may be entitled to claim compensation – and this applies equally whether you’re an employee, a contractor or even just a visitor to someone else’s work premises.
Over the years we’ve represented a huge number of crime victims – those who’ve sustained injuries during muggings or street attacks as well as those who’ve been victims of domestic violence or sexual attacks and suffered physical or psychological damage as a result. Claims on behalf of violent crime victims are dealt with slightly differently to other injury claims. Instead of being paid out by insurance companies, compensation payments are distributed via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), a government-funded body set up to take charge of payments ranging from £1,000.00 to £500,000.
We regularly act on behalf of drivers, passengers and pedestrians who’ve been injured in all manner of road and cycle accidents, from rear-end collisions to multiple pile-ups. The severity of your injuries, the cost of any rehabilitation you may need and the value of your loss of earnings will determine how much compensation you receive.
Trips & Slips
Every year A&E stats show a huge proportion of patients admitted with injuries sustained in public places such as supermarkets, restaurants and playgrounds. Some of the most common we deal with are those caused by:
- Uneven pavements
- Poorly maintained roads
- Spillages in retail outlets
To succeed with this sort of case, we need to be able to prove that the relevant authorities failed in their duty to make their premises safe and that the necessary procedures to prevent accidents were not followed.
