Can I Make A Compensation Claim For My Accident?
In order for a personal injury solicitor to successfully process a claim for you, a third party must be at least partially at fault for an event that caused you harm. Note that we say partially. This is because you can still claim for incidents that are partly your own fault. Your solicitor would negotiate a reduced percentage of liability with the defendant, and the compensation paid would scale based on this. You can claim for harm caused in several ways, for example:
- You have contracted an illness or disease due to a third party exposing you to some kind of health hazard.
- You have suffered injuries that were caused by an accident that a third party was responsible for.
- You have developed a psychological problem due to the trauma of an event that a third party was liable for.
As you can see, you are not restricted to only claiming for injuries. You can claim for other health problems as well. When we talk about a third party being liable, we many any specific legal entity. All of these are legal entities that you could claim against:
- A driving instructor.
- Your local Gym.
- A hotel you were staying at.
- A package tour company you booked a holiday with.
- A hospital or clinic.
- Your housing authority or landlord.
- A supermarket.
As you now probably realise, you can claim damages from almost any private individual, company, organisation or government body. If you are unsure of who is liable in your own case, call Legal Expert on the number at the bottom of this page, and one of our team will advise you.
Five Simple Reasons Why You Should Use A Personal Injury Lawyer
There are many excellent reasons why you should use a specialised personal injury lawyer to process your claim. However, some reasons are more compelling than others, such as:
- They are experienced in making accident and injury claims, giving them an advantage, and making it more likely that your claim will have a positive outcome.
- They are skilled in negotiating compensation settlements, meaning they could be able to get your more compensation.
- They can often arrange for local services, such as a free medical examination close to Havant to help with your claim.
- They will be able to help you prepare for your claim, gathering evidence and proving your losses.
- They should be able to defer their legal fees, with payment being conditional on them winning your claim.

Top Rated And Reviewed Solicitors
Finding a suitable team of solicitors to handle your claim can take some effort. You will need to track down a number of legal firms who might be suitable, and then vet them by calling them up. A smarter way to tackle this task would be to find websites that carry personal injury solicitor reviews. Use the facts you extract from these reviews to create a list of legal teams you think are a good choice. When you are reading the reviews, pay close attention to facts such as:
- What the claim was made for, and if it was similar to your own
- How old the review is, and whether it is still relevant.
- The pros and cons of dealing with the solicitor being reviewed.
- Whether the reviewer had a good or bad experience dealing with the solicitor.
- The fee structure, and whether a Conditional Fee Agreement was offered.
- How much the solicitor charged.
These are the kind of facts that are important. Comparing these across a number of reviews should enable you to start making an intelligent choice. However, it is still going to take some effort to go through this process. If you don’t have the time, you can let Legal Expert help you.

Do I Have To Use A Local Solicitor?
It is a common misconception that claimants must use a local team of solicitors to process their personal injury claim. This is wrong. There is no legal requirement to use a local firm at all. You can use any firm of solicitors in the UK.
It is far better to select the best solicitor for the job, rather than one that is handily close by. You can use your local solicitors if you wish. However, the benefits of using a specialist injury and accident lawyer were outlined in a previous section; you would potentially be losing all of these benefits in doing so. Benefits may include medical checkups with our local expert,
Legal Expert has designed our accident claims service specifically to meet the needs of claimants who have been harmed by a third party. We deliver all of the benefits discussed above, as we specialise solely in this aspect of the law. If you would like to learn more about the service we offer, speak to one of our team on the number at the end of this page.

Industrial Disease Claims
Workplace illness or industrial disease claims come about due to an employer exposing a member of staff to a health risk. When the member of staff becomes ill due to this exposure, personal injury solicitors should be able to process a claim. As the time limit to make a claim may be three years from diagnosis of the condition, it is possible to pursue both current and prior employers for compensation.
Legal Expert can leverage our years of experience in making workplace illness claims to get you the maximum amount of compensation you are entitled to. Call us on the number at the end of this guide to learn how we can help you.
Medical Negligence Claims
It is an unfortunate fact that medical malpractice is a fairly common occurrence in both privately run and NHS hospitals. Doctors make mistakes, as we all do from time to time. However, when a doctor harms a patient by mistake, then it could be deemed that clinical negligence has occurred. Every medical professional has a duty of care towards their patients. When they fail to fulfil this duty, leading to the patient being harmed, the victim should be able to make a claim.
If you need some medical negligence advice, or have questions about the claims process, you can call Legal Expert on the number at the bottom of the page. You might also find this guide to be of use:

Trip And Fall Claims
Serious Personal Injury Claims
Some of the largest compensation payments we have seen here at Legal Expert, have been for serious injury claims. If a young person is gravely injured, they could have a life expectancy of 80 or more years. If their life is changed forever by their injury, they would be compensated for every year of their life. This can very easily mount up to millions of pounds.
Legal Expert can help you to claim the maximum level of compensation possible in a serious injury claim. Speak to one of our team on the number at the end of this page to learn how. You can also read our complete guide to these types of claims here:
Havant Workplace Accident Claims
There are multiple levels of legislation that are in place to protect employees from harm. The most comprehensive of these are all of the regulations that have been set out by the Health & Safety Executive. Your employer must comply with all regulations that pertain to their industry at all times. If they don’t, and this leads to a member of staff being injured, then a valid reason to make a claim would exist.
