    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Injury solicitor in Oxford

    Slips, trips and falls are one the leading causes of personal injury claims in Oxford. If you are one of the unfortunate people that have suffered a slip, trip or fall in the Oxford area then perhaps you are wondering about contacting a personal injury solicitor in Oxford and starting a claim for compensation. So, do you know exactly how to do this and who can help you?

    What sort of case do you wish to start with a personal injury solicitor in Oxford?

    A personal injury solicitor in Oxford can help with a broad range of slip, trips and falls. The type of claim that they start for you will depend on where you were and what you were doing when you slipped, tripped or fell.

    If you were at work at the time then a personal injury solicitor would probably be starting an occupational accident claim for compensation. These are often paid out of an Employer’s Liability Insurance Policy. The employer is the one that you claim from because they have a duty to protect your health and safety whilst you are at work. The compensation figure will be dictated by how severe your injury is and on how much money you have lost because you are injured.

    If you were walking in a public place in Oxford when you fell then your personal injury solicitor may be starting a claim against a person or organisation that has responsibility to keep that public place safe for you to walk around in. The amount of compensation that you get will depend on how seriously injured you were and on how much money you have lost but is often paid out of a Public Liability Insurance Policy.

    How do you start a claim?

    For either of the above claims you can call us at Accident Advice Helpline. We have a team of friendly advisers who are waiting to listen to the details of your claim. You can take the Accident Advice Helpline unique 30 second test which will tell you quickly and simply if you have grounds to start a claim. You will be asked:

    • Was the accident your fault?
    • Was the accident more than three years ago?
    • Did you receive medical attention for your injuries?
    • Which part of you was injured?

    It is best to call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as you can after your accident. If your accident was more than three years ago then it is unlikely that you will be able to get a claim off the ground. This is because there is a legal time limit for personal injury claims.
