    How do personal injury compensation lawyers work?


    Personal injury compensation lawyers can deal with any case where you have been injured, or have suffered from illness or disease caused by somebody else’s negligence. You’ll need to prove that the illness, disease or injury was caused by someone else’s negligence, and a specialist personal injury lawyer will help you to compile evidence, which will then be presented to the other party’s insurers. They normally have three months to respond. Most personal injury claims can be settled out of court and straightforward cases could take between 6-8 months to conclude. More complex cases, for example those involving severe injuries, could take years.

    Claiming for compensation

    Below are some of the most common types of claims for compensation which personal injury lawyers deal with:

    • Accidents at work
    • Traffic accidents
    • Diseases or illnesses contracted at work
    • Dangerous products
    • Accidents in public places

    If you have been affected by any of these, you can seek advice from a professional personal injury lawyer, and it’s a good idea to have as much information and evidence to support your claim to hand as possible, although your lawyer will assist you with gathering any further evidence needed.
