What Is A Personal Injury Case?
A personal injury case is when an individual is harmed, either injured, made ill, or in some cases has a medical condition worsened due to an avoidable accident that was caused by negligence on the part of another party.
Examples of this could be a customer slipping on a wet floor caused by a spilt drink in a restaurant, which would not have happened if the spillage had been mopped up and signposted.
If you have suffered an injury or been made ill because of an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to claim compensation from the party responsible.

What Criteria Do You Need To Make A Personal Injury Claim?
Clients often ask us “Can I make a personal injury claim?” The answer is yes, if you meet certain criteria. To win a personal injury compensation claim, your personal injury lawyer will have to gather evidence to prove that your claim meets certain criteria. We have explained the criteria for making a personal injury claim below:
- That the Defendant (person or organisation that you are claiming compensation from) owed you, the Claimant, a “duty of care”. What does a duty of care mean? In legal terms, a duty of care means that a person or organisation is supposed to behave in a way that upholds the health and safety of others. For example, drivers have a duty of care towards other road users, and businesses have a duty of care towards their employees.
- That the Defendant broke that duty of care towards you by a negligent action or inaction. The solicitor will have to prove that this negligence caused the accident that you were involved in.
- That the accident caused by Defendant was the result of the Claimant becoming injured or ill.
An example of how this could play out could be a case of medical negligence (also known as medical malpractice or clinical negligence). For example, a doctor, or any other medical practitioner has a legal duty of care towards their patients. If the doctor misdiagnosed a patient’s illness and prescribes the wrong medication, this is negligence on the part of the doctor.
If this incorrect diagnosis causes the patient’s condition to worsen over time, and the wrong medication makes the patient ill, this situation would meet the criteria to make a personal injury claim for clinical negligence. A personal injury and clinical negligence solicitor would be responsible for gathering evidence to support this claim.
If you have experienced a personal injury due to negligence on the part of someone else, call Legal Expert today. If you have valid grounds to claim compensation, we will provide you with an excellent No Win No Fee lawyer, who will get started on your claim right away.
What To Look For When Choosing A Personal Injury Solicitor
Choosing the best personal injury lawyer to handle your compensation claim can be overwhelming. Here are some tips from Legal Expert about what to look for in your solicitor.
Top 5 Tips For Choosing A Personal Injury Lawyer:
- You may wonder whether it is better to a qualified personal injury solicitor, or a claims management company (CMC) to handle your claim. We recommend always choosing a personal injury solicitor provided by a reputable personal injury law firm, to handle your claim.
- Make sure that the personal injury solicitor that you select, is accredited by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA).
- Do your research. Perhaps you require a specialist solicitor to help you claim compensation such as a clinical negligence solicitor or a road traffic accident claims solicitors. It pays to understand what sort of personal injuries different personal injury law firms specialise in. alternatively, opt for a free consultation with an advisor from Legal Expert. We can provide you with an excellent specialist solicitor, with the right skills and experience to handle your claim.
- Ask a friend or family member who has made a personal injury claim in the past to recommend what they think you should look for in a solicitor.
- Take advantage of the free legal consultation offered by Legal Expert. If you are looking for a personal injury solicitor in Barnet, or covering the area, we can review your personal circumstances and recommend one of our personal injury lawyers to handle your claim, based on their skills and experience.
Where To Find Personal Injury Solicitor Reviews
Personal injury solicitors reviews can help you get an idea of what a personal injury law firm’s previous clients thought of the service that they received. To find online reviews of personal injury solicitors go to an online search engine like Google or Bing and enter terms such as “No Win No Fee personal injury solicitors” or “Barnet personal injury solicitors” and you will see reviews written by people that have used their services.
Do I Need To Use A Solicitor Near Me?
Clients often ask us, “Do I need to use a solicitor near me?” It would seem that if you live in Barnet, you would need to use a personal injury solicitor that is based in this borough, or a North London accident claims solicitor, to handle your claim.
However, this is not actually true. With today’s easily accessible digital communications technology, you can just as easily work with a solicitor based elsewhere in the country, if one based elsewhere is more suitable for covering your personal injury claim.
At Legal Expert, we will prioritise your personal injury solicitors skills and experience over their location. If you need to go for a medical assessment, Legal Expert will arrange for you to have one done locally.
What Are The Most Common Personal Injury Claims We Handle?
At Legal Expert, we handle all sorts of personal injury claims for our clients. Many clients are anxious to know whether or not we will handle a personal injury claim for an accident and injury, or illness like theirs. If your injury or illness was serious enough to warrant you taking three or more days off work, you could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation. We will now look at some of the personal injury claims that we often handle, in more detail.
Personal Injury And Clinical Negligence Solicitors
Have you experienced medical negligence (also known as medical malpractice or clinical negligence). Call Legal Expert today for medical negligence advice and to see if you are entitled to make a clinical negligence compensation claim. What is medical negligence?
Medical negligence is when a medical practitioner delivers substandard care to a patient. This could be a medical mistake, error in surgery or a misdiagnosis of the patient’s condition. If this negligence results in the patient becoming injured, ill or their existing medical condition worsening then they could be entitled to claim personal injury compensation for this medical malpractice.
If you live in this area or elsewhere and have suffered as a result of medical negligence because of a doctor, nurse, dentist or any other medical practitioner, call Legal Expert today for medical negligence advice and to see if you are entitled to claim compensation.
Slip, Trip And Fall Claim Solicitors
Unfortunately, a simple careless action, such as not mopping up a spillage, or fixing a broken floorboard can result in a slip, trip or fall accident, anywhere from an office to a restaurant. Whilst many injuries resulting from a slip, trip and fall injury are minor, such as light bruising, other injuries can be more serious such as a strain, sprain, broken bones or fractured bones.
If you have experienced a slip, trip or fall injury, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries from the party responsible.
Call Legal Expert today, to see if you could claim compensation for a slip, trip and fall injury.
Accident At Work Claims
Whether you work in this borough or elsewhere, if you have been injured or made ill due to an accident at work that was caused by negligence on the part of your employer, you could be entitled to compensation. According to the Health And Safety At Work Act of 1974, employers have a responsibility to make sure their employees are safe at work. This is known as a duty of care.
This means that they are responsible for providing them with a hazard free environment that is safe and hygienic. If they fail to do so and their negligence results in an employee becoming injured, or ill, due to an accident, they could be held liable for the employee’s injuries and have to pay the employee compensation.
If you have been injured in an accident at work, which was caused by negligence on the part of your employer, call Legal Expert today, to enquire about finding a personal injury solicitor to handle your accident at work compensation claim.
Fatal Workplace Accidents
Injuries caused by accidents in the workplace can be so extreme that they result in the death of the injured party. These are known as fatal accidents. HSE statistics show that there were 142 workers killed in workplace accidents in Great Britain in 2020/21.
The graph below shows which industries had the most cases of fatal accidents. As you can see, the construction industry is amongst these. However, there are others.
Industrial Disease Claims
As we have established, employers here and elsewhere have a responsibility to keep their employees safe at work. This includes protecting them from processes or exposure to harmful substances, which can result in them contracting industrial diseases.
Examples of industrial diseases can include cancer, the worsening of asthma, industrial deafness, hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS), white vibration finger (WVF), asbestos-related diseases, silicosis and dermatitis. If you contracted an industrial disease or medical condition because of negligence on the part of an employer, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.

How Much Could Your Claim Be Worth?
You may be wondering how much Barnet personal injury solicitors could get you in compensation. However, every personal injury claim is different. Therefore, this is no specific figure we can give you in this article that will be accurate to everyone’s circumstances.
What we can do is to provide you with some example figures that are awarded for differing reasons.
This amount is awarded to reflect the severity of your physical and mental injuries. It’s calculated using a legal publication called the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). These guidelines are made up of a wide array of injuries and what they could be worth in compensation. The amount will vary depending on how severe the injury is, as well as things like your recovery period.
The table below contains some example figures taken from the latest edition of the JCG (2019). Don’t worry if you don’t see your injury listed, this is only a small cross-section of the guidelines.
|Post-traumatic stress disorder||(d) Less severe - an almost full recovery within 1-2 years with only minor symptoms if they do persist||£3,710 to £7,680|
|Sight||(b) Total Blindness||In the region of £252,180|
|Deafness||(c) Completely deaf in one ear||£29,380 to £42,730|
|Chest||(f) Injuries that lead to collapsed lungs, but a full recovery is made||£2,060 to £5,000|
|Illness||(iii) food poisoning that causes significant craps, fatigue, and altered bowel function. Complete recovery after a year or two||£3,710 to £8,950|
|Neck||(c) Minor - (iii) full recovery within 3 months||Up to £2,300|
|Shoulder||Clavicle fracture||£4,830 to £11,490|
|Arm||Simple forearm fractures||£6,190 to £18,020|
|Elbow||An injury that’s severely disabling||£36,770 to £51,460|
|Wrist||Uncomplicated Colles’ fracture||In the region of £6,970|
There are other sums that can factor into your final settlement amount. These are known as special damages. Some examples are:
- Loss of earnings – if you are prevented from working due to your injuries, you may be able to claim back the wages you would have earned during this time.
- Medical bills – there can be things like prescription costs and/or specialist care that isn’t available on the NHS that can be claimed back too.
- Damage to property – your property may be damaged during the process of your accident. Special damages can also cover the costs of these repairs or replacements.
You must have evidence of these losses and expenditures to be able to claim them back. Get in touch for more information on this subject.
