What Types Of Injury Claims Do We Deal With?

The Carlisle personal injury solicitors on our panel deal with a wide variety of claims. The next few sections will give examples of some of the more common claims we handle. If how your injury took place is not listed below, do not worry. It doesn’t necessarily mean that we can’t help you claim compensation.

Road Accidents

Cars and other vehicles have never been safer but our roads have never been busier which makes road accidents a common occurrence in the UK.

If you are the victim of a road accident and it was not your fault then you may well be entitled to make a claim for compensation for your pain, suffering and losses. This applies to you whether you were the driver, passenger, motorcyclist, cyclist or even a pedestrian.

Examples Of Road Accidents Include

  • Injuries sustained whilst a passenger on a bus
  • Cyclist struck by a car
  • Car driver injured by another car

Accidents at Work

Workplaces in the UK are safer than ever thanks to various UK and European legislation and the sterling work of the Health and Safety Executive. However, accidents still do happen in all kinds of workplaces including:

The types of accidents can range from simple trips, falls in an office to falls from height and machinery accidents in a factory or on a construction site.

Our Carlisle injury team are very experienced in all types of accident at work claims so get in touch to see if you have a valid claim.

Examples of Accidents

At Work

  • Accident due to dangerous machinery
  • Back injuries due to no manual handling training
  • Trips over wires in an office

Industrial Diseases

As well as accidents at work, industrial diseases are a common occurrence. The most common are those related to asbestos. With many people who were exposed to it in the past now beginning to suffer symptoms, if you’re one of them you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation with our Carlisle personal injury solicitors team.

Examples of industrial diseases include:

Accidents In a Public Place

These can include accidents or injuries sustained whilst walking on a Carlisle path, road or other public places such as in a shopping centre or leisure centre. The most common of these are simple trips, slips and falls.

Whilst some injuries sustained can be relatively minor, some can have long-lasting effects. If you’ve had an accident in a public place in Carlisle, our personal injury solicitors are ready to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Examples Of Public Place Accidents Include:

● Tripping over stock left in a supermarket aisle
● Slipping over spilt liquid in a restaurant
● Falling over a cracked paving stone in the street

Proving Your Injury Claim

By law, compensation for personal injuries is only payable where blame or fault can be established and losses proved. In any claim, it is not enough to simply state that an accident has happened and an injury has occurred.

Evidence From Witnesses

In some cases, it is not possible to prove fault or blame without gathering evidence. That means that in some personal injury cases, it is necessary to find and interview people who saw the accident as well as appropriate experts to give their opinion. Other forms of evidence include things like medical reports and photographs.

Our personal injury solicitor for Carlisle will carry out these investigations and interviews but any information you can provide to help track these witnesses down will be much appreciated.

Calculating Your Compensation

There are a few different sums to take into account when considering how much your claim could be worth. Below, we’ve broken these down into some of the more common categories. This is not an exhaustive list, so call our advisors for more information.

Pain and Suffering

Described also as “general damages”, this part of your compensation claim is for the pain and suffering caused by your accident and injury as well as any consequent reduction in quality of life. This is based on medical evidence. This sum is calculated by using a legal publication called the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG).

We’ve included some of the entries from these guidelines in the table below. As you can see, the range that can be awarded for many injuries can vary. This is often due to more severe injuries tending to be worth more money.

InjuryDescriptionAmount

Lung(f) Injuries that cause collapsed lungs, but a full recovery takes place without complication£2,060 to £5,000

Expenses

Because of your accident, you may have had expenses that you may not otherwise have had. This could include vehicle repairs, taxis, car hire, extra telephone calls, prescription charges, clothing, laundry or any other expenses that you may have incurred. It is recommended that you keep records and receipts of any such expenses.

Loss of Earnings/Loss of Profit

Your accident and injury may have caused you to take time away from work which means that you will have lost the opportunity to earn money. This is the case whether you are employed or self-employed.

Loss of Future Earnings

In some cases, you may find that your injury has long-lasting effects that inhibit your future work which means you may not be able to earn as much as you might have before your injury. If this is the case, you may be entitled to claim for future loss of earnings.
