Other areas we can help with
Everyone has the right to feel safe at work - and all employers have a duty of care towards their staff. If you have been injured due to an accident at work that was not your fault, then you could be entitled to claim compensation. Whether you’ve been hurt at the office, on a building site or in a factory - our personal injury lawyers can help you make a claim.
If you have suffered a serious brain injury, this can affect your life dramatically. It may hospitalise you for many months and you may not be able to return to work or your home immediately. You may also need specialist therapies to help you to learn to walk and talk again. Our specialist Personal Injury team has represented many brain injured clients in complex and high value cases.
Anyone who has been the victim of a crime, or been abused as a child, is likely to have been through a traumatic experience and suffered long-standing effects. If you have suffered injury as a result of a criminal act, whether physical or psychological, our experts are experienced in dealing with the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board and can guide you through the process of making a claim.
The vast majority of doctors, nurses and dentists provide superb quality healthcare - but sometimes things do go wrong. You could be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you feel you have suffered injury, unnecessary pain or scarring, emotional trauma or psychological damage from cosmetic surgery or dentistry.
Losing a loved one is a devastating and traumatic life event. We have experience in helping hundreds of people who have been bereaved in tragic circumstances - and in these situations, our priority is to ensure that you and your family have access to all the care and advice you need. We will apply for interim payments for financial support, as well as ensuring that all of your losses - now and in the future - are included when seeking compensation.
Everyone experiences stress - however, certain types of stress can be physically and psychologically harmful. If you have witnessed a serious accident or been directly involved in a serious accident yourself, you could be suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our specialist solicitors can provide a free initial consultation and then investigate your claim to determine if you have a case.
Road traffic accidents are the most common type of personal injury claim – and for low impact or minor injury cases, we aim to recover your compensation within months of your accident. You don’t even have to be the driver of a car to make a claim. Passengers, motorcyclists, pedal cyclists and pedestrians who have been involved in accidents on the road are equally entitled to claim for compensation.
If you are a visitor or customer on someone else’s premises, you can claim against the owner or occupier if you suffer an injury after a slipping accident - which you do not believe was your own fault. If you have slipped on something that should not have been on the floor, in a public place or at work - then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
If you have been injured through a trip or fall, we can help you to find out if you are able to make a claim for compensation. It is essential that accurate measurements of the defects are taken as soon as possible after the accident, as repairs are often carried out very quickly afterwards. Photographs of the wider area are also essential, as the courts have been known to take into account the general condition of the surrounding area.
We operate under the ‘no win, no fee’ system, which removes the financial risk of bringing a claim. Essentially this means that if you lose, you won’t be out of pocket - because we take out specialist ‘after the event’ insurance on your behalf which covers the other side’s costs. If you win, any of the legal costs not paid by your opponent will be deducted from any compensation paid to you.
If you receive compensation as a result of a Personal Injury Claim, this may put the savings or capital held in your own name above a certain limit. This could mean that you lose entitlement to certain means-tested state benefits, local authority care or other support – and your benefits may be reduced or even stopped.
Being involved in an accident can be a life-changing experience and sometimes rehabilitation can take many months or years. As well as helping you to get the compensation you deserve, we can also help to secure the finances you need to pay for equipment and physiotherapy, or support with other care and therapies that are vital to your recovery and long-term needs.
