People often ask us what kind of accidents are most common in personal injury claims. The answer to that is that there are many different types of cases we deal with. Indeed, the most important thing is not the type of accident people have suffered but whether it satisfies the criteria designed to decide whether or not someone should be able to make a personal injury claim. So if you’re looking for no win no fee lawyers it’s important to first understand how different accidents affect different claims.
Trafford ‘no win, no fee’ claims
The most common type of claims tend to fall into the following categories:
Road traffic accidents: These are the most common issues. When there has been a car accident, there is a fair chance that one of the drivers was at fault. When there has been significant injury, that’s when we get involved.
The important thing is to have the evidence. These can be over in a flash and it’s not always possible to be certain about who was at fault. Try to get the contact details of witnesses together with the name and numbers of any police officers who were there. Their testimonies will be useful in helping you to win your case.
Slips in the street: If you fall over in the street you may be entitled to compensation if the area was left in a dangerous condition. This can include wet floors, broken paving slabs or equipment left in the way. These tend to be the responsibility of the local council who should take out public liability insurance to protect them when this happens. It will be this insurance policy which you will be claiming against.
Injuries in the workplace: We spend most of our day at work so it’s no surprise that accidents are so common here. Your employer has to accept a duty of care while you’re on their premises. They are obliged to take all reasonable measures to reduce the risks you face when you’re in that environment and if they don’t succeed in this you will be able to make a claim.
People are often concerned that this may affect their job. However no company is allowed to take action against an employee who has made a claim against them. If they do, then they may be liable for further complaints to be made.
