Personal Injury Compensation Claims

If you’ve been involved in an accident and you weren’t to blame then you have the right to claim for compensation.  Personal injury solicitors are experts in recovering compensation in the shortest time possible. Their experience and knowledge will enable them to negotiate the maximum amount of compensation that is fair depending on the type of injury you have.

There are many types of injuries you can make a claim for. Some of the most common types are:

Accidents At Work

The employer is responsible for ensuring the work environment is safe and should you be involved in an accident at work, which was caused by unsafe working conditions, or by another employee you can make a claim. An injury caused by machinery or defective tools for example is a legitimate reason to pursue a claim.

Industrial Disease

If you are a victim of a condition caused by exposure to a particular substance. A good example of this is asbestosis caused by contact to asbestos fibres, which have been inhaled.

Clinical Negligence

If you have been misdiagnosed or have been affected by a medial procedure that has resulted in an injury, then you can make a clinical negligence claim.

Road Traffic Accidents

A road traffic accident claim can be made against other car and motorbike drivers, passengers, cyclists and even pedestrians, if you were a victim of an accident and it wasn’t your fault.

Making a claim for compensation isn’t just confined to a physical injury but also for mental illness. Your injury might have stopped you from working. It’s likely that you have suffered stress as a result of financial difficulties.

Making a compensation claim is simple. Just contact a personal injury solicitor and they will access your claim and the circumstances behind it. The average time for a successful claim is usually between about 3 – 4 months. The insurers of the party responsible pay out the value of the claim.
