Accident At Work Claims

If you are looking for a personal injury solicitor to assist you with launching an accident at work claim, look no further.

All employers are required to provide a safe and healthy workplace by law. If they fail to do this, and you have been injured as a consequence, you could be entitled to compensation. There are many ways your employer could be responsible. Here are a few examples:

  • They failed to carry out a risk assessment. (Such as in a warehouse environment etc.)
  • They failed to act on the findings in a risk assessment.
  • They did not provide you with adequate training for the job.
  • They did not provide you with the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
  • They did not allow you to take breaks.
  • They failed to replace defective machinery.

Road Traffic Accident Claims

If you have been involved in any type of road traffic accident as a result of third-party negligence, you could be entitled to compensation.

Road traffic accidents include those involving drivers, passengers, motorcyclists, cyclists, pedestrians, or anyone on the roads. Our advisors and articles can give you more information on how much compensation for whiplash and back pain you could receive following the recent Whiplash Injury Reforms 2021.

From 31st May 2021, any drivers or passengers aged 18 or over with injuries valued at £5,000 or below must make their claim through a Government portal. Contact our advisors today to learn more.

It’s important that if you do wish to claim that the accident happened within the past three years and you can prove that someone else was to blame. We can help you establish these facts, however. A quick call to our legal helpline will see all your questions answered.

You can find the Legal Helpline guides on road traffic accident claims below:

Medical Negligence

When in a hospital or a care home, we put our health in the hands of professionals. We don’t expect to suffer as a consequence. However, not all instances of errors or mistakes in your treatment are examples of medical negligence.

All medical professionals owe a duty of care to their patients, which means the treatment they provide must meet the correct standard. If this standard is not met, and you suffer harm as a result, this is medical negligence.

Medical negligence claims differ considerably, with some examples including knee and hip replacement surgical errors, cosmetic surgery issues, GP negligence, prescription errors, delays and misdiagnoses in cancer cases.

Not only does medical negligence cause physical pain, but also it can cause emotional trauma too. If you’ve endured such pain and suffering, you could be entitled to compensation. Speak to our legal helpline today to learn more.

To learn more about medical negligence, you can find some official Legal Helpline articles below:

Slips, Trips And Falls And Accidents In Public Places

Slip, trip, and fall claims are actually some of the most common types of accidents at work according to the Health and Safety Executive, and they can happen in many different ways.

Perhaps you fell due to a deep pothole? Maybe you slipped on an unmarked wet floor in a supermarket? Or maybe you tripped over a loose wire in the gym.

No matter what has occurred, if you have been injured in a slip, trip, or fall as a result of third-party negligence, contact our legal helpline today to see if you could be entitled to compensation.

Criminal Injury Compensation

Being injured by a criminal committing an illegal act can be deeply traumatic. Did you know that if you did suffer an injury, whether psychological or physical, you could be entitled to compensation?

The government set up a body known as the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), which is designed to compensate the victims of crime. They will compensate you if the following applies:

  • You were the victim of a crime and suffered an injury in the process of the act being committed.
  • Or you are the relative of someone who has suffered a fatal accident due to a violent crime.
  • You have sustained psychological injuries as a result of witnessing a loved one experiencing a violent crime.
  • If you have been injured while taking reasonable steps to prevent a crime.

The panel of solicitors who we work closely with have lots of experience handling these types of cases. They can help you start your claim, and can provide more information on CICA payouts. Simply call our legal helpline today to find out more.

You can also learn more about claiming criminal injuries compensation and CICA payouts in our guides, which you can browse below:

Data Breach Compensation Claims

We choose to share our personal data with many different organisations, from social media platforms to banks. In many cases, this exchange of information is necessary to access services and products.

When we share our data with third parties, we trust that they’ll keep it safe and secure. We also trust that they’ll only use that data in the manner that we consent to.

Issues arise when data is accessed, lost, misused or shared in ways we didn’t agree to. This may arise because of human error, such as sending an email to the wrong recipient. But they could also occur because of cyber security issues, like hacking and bypassing firewalls.

If as a result of the data breach you suffer financial losses or psychological distress, you could claim compensation. Reach out to our legal helpline today to learn more.

No Win No Fee Claims

Whether you have sustained a minor or a serious injury, our helpline is always open for advice and information regarding claims that could stem from these injuries. Not only that, but we could connect you with a No Win No Fee solicitor from our panel. If we think your claim could be valid, then they will take it from there.

No Win No Fee arrangements exist so that the financial stress sometimes involved in enlisting legal help can be reduced. Our panel of solicitors offer their services through a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), which means you are only expected to pay them a success fee following the conclusion of a successful claim. Paying this fee takes place in the form of a small percentage that is taken from the compensation you are awarded.

If your claim does not succeed, you do not pay a success fee.

Call our accident advice helpline today for more information and free guidance.
