Can you claim compensation after your accident?
We help people to claim compensation for a wide range of injuries caused by many different kinds of accidents.
To make a claim, generally you’ll need to be able to answer ‘yes’ to the following questions:
- Did the accident happen within the last three years?
- Did someone else cause the accident?
- Did you suffer injury?
The quickest and best way to find out whether you can make a claim is to call us for free on 0800 689 5659. Alternatively, complete our online claim form and one of our friendly, legally trained advisors will call you back.
If you’re not yet ready to get in touch, our online claim calculator can give you an idea of how much compensation you might be due.
What types of accident does compensation cover?
We help people to claim compensation for many different types of accident. Commonly, accidents fall into one of three groups:
Road accidents often involve two or more drivers. Others involve cyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians and those using public transport.
Commonly, personal injury claims come from passengers who have been involved in car accidents. Passengers also claim for injuries sustained in coach and bus accidents.
Some claims come from pedestrians who’ve been injured by motorists. Motorcylists and cyclists also make personal injury claims after collisions involving drivers, and for accidents involving treacherous road conditions. We can help people injured in hit-and-run accidents, or by uninsured drivers.
Accidents at work occur in a huge variety of workplaces – not just factories, warehouses or construction sites. Handling, lifting and carrying are common causes of injury. Other accidents involve falling from height, being struck by a moving object and coming into contact with moving machinery.
Your employer has a legal duty to make sure you can work safely. If your employer could have done more to protect you, you may be able to claim compensation. Call us free on 0800 689 5659 if you’d like to find out more.
Slips, trips and falls are a major cause of accidents, both in the workplace and outside of it. Defective or wet flooring, hazardous obstacles and spillages can all lead to injury, sometimes serious.
You may be tempted to blame yourself for your slip, trip or fall. Perhaps you’re not clear whether another party was responsible for your accident. We can advise whether you could claim. Call free on 0800 689 5659 if you’d like to talk your accident through.
Why claim compensation?
Treating an injury may be a lengthy process. Even a mild injury can stop you from doing simple tasks. Sadly, some injuries can cause permanent disabilities. Others need treatment in specialist rehabilitation units.
If you need to take long periods off work, for treatment or to recover, you may find it difficult to keep up with the mortgage, rent or household bills. You might also have to depend on someone else to help you. Claiming compensation for loss of earnings could enable you and your family to cope.
If you were injured in your workplace, it’s important to report working conditions that are dangerous. This can bring about changes in training and work environments, helping protect others by reducing the risk of accidents.
Will your claim succeed?
Claiming compensation is not an exact science, and every case is different. That’s why it’s important to use a specialist personal injury solicitor, one with the knowledge, experience and expertise to help you get the highest possible level of compensation you’re due.
As we help you to build your case, we’ll consider:
- Your pain and suffering
- Any loss of earnings due to time off work
- Impact on your ability to work and earn in future
- The effects your injury has had on your social life and hobbies
- Costs of medical treatment, medication and home adaptation
- Any care you’ve received, even if it’s been given for free
We can’t give you an exact figure, but our online claim calculator can provide some idea of how much you could receive if your claim is successful.
