Do you need a solicitor in Middleton?
If you have been injured in some way that was not your fault, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. While you do not have to use the services of a qualified legal representative, it is often advisable to do so to ensure that you receive the best support and advice available to progress with your claim.
To find out more about making a claim and the steps involved, contact Accident Advice Helpline today and speak to our solicitor in Middleton. We will be able to provide you with free no-obligation advice over the phone, and you can then decide if you would like to proceed with your claim or not.
One of the most common types of claims with which our solicitor in Middleton deals on a weekly basis is those involving back injuries. Unfortunately, it is very easy to injure your back — even seemingly minor trips or falls can cause intense pain and long-term problems if you are not careful. This is especially true if a minor injury is not treated properly.
In such a situation, it may be possible for a solicitor in Middleton to argue that you have been the victim of medical negligence. For instance, we could help a client to make a claim for financial compensation after they had an operation on their back which did not go according to plan. Although such a client would have been advised of the potential for complications, the medical team might have made a number of errors which could (and indeed should) have been prevented. As a result of these errors, a solicitor in Middleton would likely be able to win compensation on the client’s behalf.
You may have suffered an injury at work as a result of actions taken by your employer. For example, they may not have kept the work place clean, tidy and free from hazards. This may have led to you tripping over something and therefore having an accident. They may even have failed to provide you with the necessary training to perform your job properly or safely. It may be that you were required to move some boxes from one area to another, and as you had not been provided with training on the correct manual handling techniques that should be deployed, you caused yourself an injury. It would be possible for an experienced solicitor in Middleton, such as those working for Accident Advice Helpline, to argue that this is the fault of the employer as they had failed in their duty of care to you.

The amount of compensation that is awarded in any given case will vary depending on several factors. These can include the nature of the accident and the severity of the injury which you have suffered.
