A personal injury solicitor will be armed with all the information you need to make a compensation claim. The amount of compensation awarded in personal injury claims varies depending on a number of different factors. This is because injuries affect people in different ways, and each person’s circumstances are taken into account. The most common types of claim include whiplash, road accident, and medical negligence. Take our easy 30 second test to see if you can make a claim for compensation.
When to use a personal injury solicitor
Most compensation claims are made for injuries that have come about as a result of negligence. This could be by a wide variety of people or circumstances. For example:
• Restaurant or retail owners
• Medical professionals
• Drivers or other road users
It is at times like this that you need an expert on your side. And an expert in compensation such as a personal injury solicitor can help you get all the information together that you will need to make a claim for compensation. People in positions of responsibility have a duty of care. For example, employers must do all they can to maintain a safe and healthy environment for employees, and road users must take care not to endanger others. A personal injury solicitor will be able to advise exactly how to proceed if you think you have been affected by negligence on the part of someone in a position of responsibility.
If you are injured as a result of someone ignoring their responsibilities, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.
