    Compensation for faulty product injuries in the UK


    What happens with compensation for faulty product injuries with UK law firms?

    They are highly trained specialists handling personal injury claims from non-fault accident victims. This includes compensation claims for:

    • Road traffic accidents
    • Accidents at work, such as industrial illness or disease
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Helping victims of violent crimes to appeal at Tribunal, if their application to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority has been turned down in the first instance.

    Do compensation for faulty product injuries UK lawyers represent people at court – wearing wigs and stuff?

    Sorry, no wigs! Most claimants’ cases are actually dealt with over the telephone and many are settled out of court. Once the negligent party accepts liability, their insurers are typically the ones who foot the bill. An accident victim’s compensation lawyer will send an offer-to-settle letter to the negligent party which will outline the amount of compensation the claimant – or accident victim – expects to receive for their pain and suffering, their loss of income and any expenses they were forced to pay as a result of the accident.

    Only when the negligent party refuses to accept liability will the accident solicitor or compensation for faulty product injuries UK law firm discuss with their claimant if it is a viable option to challenge the other party at court. If the claimant decides to go ahead, their accident solicitor or compensation for faulty product injuries UK law firm will prepare the claimant for court. All the claimant really has to do is to give evidence, as and when the judge asks for clarification of medical points concerning the accident victim’s injuries.

    The judge will decide if compensation is to be paid to the accident victim and how much that should be. There’s nothing to worry about, as accident solicitors prepare their claimants really well to deal with the day at court.
