If all three of the above are correct, then you could make a successful claim for compensation.

Accidents on the road
Roads are very dangerous, accidents that occur on roads can unfortunately lead to life changing injuries, it’s not just road traffic collisions that you can claim for. If you have been injured on the road as a pedestrian, cyclist or on public transport you could also claim for compensation.
We understand that even the smallest of accidents on the road can lead to very serious injuries with a large amount of financial loss. Our solicitors are not only here to win you the compensation you deserve but to also ensure that you make a full recovery.
Claiming for an injury that you suffered at work can be very daunting, you may be worrying about losing your job if you’re still employed by the same company. But you are struggling to make ends meet at home as your injury has reduced how much you can work. Whether you have suffered an injury as a result of faulty equipment or whether it was due to a health and safety failing that the company had made you could be entitled to claim compensation.
The compensation won’t be paid by your employer but by the insurance company that provides their policy. Employers would need a reasonable reason to dismiss you and making a claim for compensation would not be a reason to dismiss you.
Slips, trips and falls
The consequences of a slip or trip will often be minor but can sometimes result in serious injuries such as broken bones and severe ligament damage.
Whether the slip or trip was an accident at work, in a shop or even on the pavement, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.
When you consult a doctor or general practitioner you should feel in safe hands, you do not expect accidents, errors or sub-standard care. This is unfortunately what some of us are receiving, if you have received an injury or your condition has been made worse due to medical negligence you could be entitled to claim compensation
Medical negligence covers a wide spectrum, from misdiagnosis to hospital or dental negligence and many more.
We have specialist medical negligence solicitors waiting to help you make a full recovery and get the compensation you deserve.
Have you got a claim?
Although all cases are different and the best way to find out is to speak to a solicitor take a look at the information below which can help you understand if you have a claim to make.
For a claim to be successful your solicitor must be able to prove somebody else was at fault for your injury. This could be from them not ensuring the correct health and safety procedures are being followed to them not paying attention whilst driving and many more.
Other reasons that could make your claim successful include:
- Failing to inspect equipment
- Failing to keep pathways and aisles clear of tripping hazards and obstacles
- Ignoring laws and regulations in place to keep you safe
What can you claim?
When working out how much your claim is worth we will consider all expenses that have been caused from your injury. But we will also think of any future costs that may occur.
When receiving compensation, we consider:
- Lost Earnings from time off work
- Loss of future earnings
- Care you’ve received
- Adaptations to your property
- Medical Costs
- Pain you’ve experienced from injury
Why make a claim?
If you’re undecided whether to make a claim it could be for several reasons, whether it be due to fear of losing your job or if you’ve heard that the claims process is stressful or any other reason. We would highly recommend that you do make a claim even if you’re worried about doing so. Our specially trained solicitors are on hand 24/7 to answer your calls.
If you’ve suffered an injury that has stopped you working you could be due compensation for any loss of pay that has occurred. This means that you have plenty of time to fully recover rather than rushing back to work, which is only likely to cause further injury or prevent full recovery.
All claims made with us are no win no fee, so there is no risk for you, our costs will come out of any compensation received so there’s no financial risk for you. If we don’t win your case you won’t have to pay us a penny. It’s in our best interest to secure the maximum compensation possible.
How much could you claim?
All claims are different and there is no way of predicting how much your case could be worth until we find out more details about the injury you or your loved one have received. But our specially trained personal injury solicitors will ensure they take every possible cost into account when negotiating your claim. Some of these include:
- Loss of earnings from time off work
- Future loss of earnings due to halted career progression
- The care you gave received
- Adaptations that may need to be made to your property or vehicle
- Travel expenses
- Treatment costs
As well as many other expenses that can be claimed back and we offer and no win no fee agreement you don’t need to worry about you being left out of pocket.
