If you suffered an accident while on holiday at Morecombe Bay or in the Forest of Bowland or while enjoying a city break in Lancaster itself, you can make a compensation claim in Lancashire, provided your accident was the result of somebody else’s negligence and the accident happened within the last 3 years.
What types of accidents would a compensation claim in Lancashire cover?
- Slips, trips and falls
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work, including industrial disease
There are many more instances, where a compensation claim solicitor may be able to assist. For example, if you were injured in an assault, but the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority turned down your initial application for compensation and you now have to appeal at the Tribunal, a compensation solicitor in Lancashire can help you win justice and compensation.

Hiring the right person for the job
For example, if you went on a hiking holiday in the Forest of Bowland and you fell down a steep incline because one of your fellow hikers accidentally pushed you while larking about, you are entitled to claim compensation for your spinal cord injury, an injury that has left you paralysed and in a wheelchair for the rest of your life.
As such injuries usually involve complex medical treatment and after care that will be life-term, you will need a solicitor specialising in spinal cord injuries. Such a specialist compensation solicitor will know from experience how much money an accident victim’s lifelong care will require and how this compensation amount is best managed. Advice about what to do with the large compensation cheque, once you receive it, is just as important as winning compensation in the first place.
If you are no longer able to provide for yourself and must rely on home carers or home help to perform household chores, help you to clean and dress, then the money awarded to you for your spinal cord injury must last for a very long time. The solicitor you appoint should have the relevant expertise to guide you with regard to compensation management.
