If you do want to make a claim for personal injury then you should speak to an experienced injury solicitor in Onchan today to find out more about the process.
Types of personal injury
Personal injury covers a very wide spectrum of accidents and injuries, but generally speaking they can be divided into the following categories:
- Road traffic collisions
- Work based (this includes accidents and industrial diseases)
- Slips, trip and falls (either in public or private buildings)
This is of course not an exhaustive list, and your injury solicitor in Onchan will be able to give you more information as to whether or not your situation is covered and whether you are eligible to make a claim. Alternatively you can take our 30 second test which will confirm your eligibility immediately.
Road traffic collisions are very common occurrence on our roads. For the most part people can escape with no, or only minor, injuries. In other instances the injuries sustained can be more serious, sometimes even resulting in fatality.
If you have been involved in a road traffic collision, whether you were the driver of one of the vehicles involved, a passenger (even if you were the passenger in the vehicle in which the driver is deemed to be responsible), a cyclist or a pedestrian, then our expert injury solicitor in Onchan can help you make a claim for personal injury.
Work based incidents
If you are hoping to make a claim against your employer then generally speaking you are likely to want to do this as a result of an accident, or because you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have extensive experience of dealing with all sorts of work based personal injury claims and our injury solicitor in Onchan will be able to help you progress with your claim regardless of the circumstances.
If you have been diagnosed with an industrial disease, for example, asthma, hearing loss, vibration white finger or the more life-threatening mesothelioma, then our solicitors can help you make a claim.
Equally, your injury solicitor in Onchan will help you make your claim if you have been injured in an accident.
