Merseyside is now a metropolitan county on the banks of the River Mersey, incorporating the city of Liverpool, and various metropolitan boroughs. Merseyside was a ship building area and the port of Liverpool ensured the development of the city, although when it was granted borough status by King John in 1207, the population was around 500, and it didn’t grow until after the middle of the 16th century. As a port city, Liverpool has the oldest Chinese community in Europe, and the oldest Black African community in the UK, making it a vibrant cosmopolitan place to live.
Do you need an Accident Solicitor in Merseyside?
If you have been injured in an accident which you could prove, with the help of an accident solicitor in Merseyside, was not your fault, you could be looking for one with suitable experience to help you file a personal injury compensation claim. It may not be as easy as you first thought to track down a suitable solicitor in Merseyside as there are many of them, all specialising in one, or perhaps two areas of the claims’ laws. You need an accident solicitor in Merseyside who has experience of dealing with claims for clients who were involved in the same type of accident as yours. For example, if you had an accident at sea, you wouldn’t need an accident solicitor in Merseyside who specialised in handling claims for people who were injured in road traffic accidents.

We are a law firm that works with a team of expert accident solicitors who live and work all over the country and who have diverse areas of expertise. They all work on a ‘no win, no fee*’ basis, and if you call us at Accident Advice Helpline we can probably put you in contact with a suitable expert.
Accidents at sea
If you have an accident at sea, whether as a passenger or a crew member, you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove that your accident (and so your injury) was caused by another person’s negligence. For example, if you were hit by a falling object, you may be able to prove that the object fell because it had not been stowed away properly by a crew member.
You have two years from the date of an accident that happened at sea to file your claim for injuries, not three years as is usually the case if your accident occurred within the UK.
