Legislation concerning personal injury and work-related accident and illness compensation claims has been around for many, many years. It is a specialist area of law which is why Legal Expert’s panel of solicitors is compromised of some of the most experienced personal injury lawyers across the UK.
With many years of experience advising claimants on the likelihood of their compensation claim, the Legal Expert panels of solicitors have helped thousands of claimants.
But time is of the essence. There is a three-year deadline on personal injury compensation claims. Within this period, if you intend to claim compensation, you must lodge your complaint.
The deadline begins to tick from the date you received your injuries if you were hurt in an accident, road traffic collision or another incident. For people with industrial diseases or other work-related injuries, such as vibration white finger, industrial asthma etc., the deadline begins from the moment of diagnosis.
To make a claim, the Grimsby personal injury solicitors or those covering this area you choose to use will need to demonstrate that;
- You were owed a duty of care by the defendant, such as your employer
- This duty of care was breached, that is the accident that happened
- And that this breach caused you to be injured, such as a broken bone or to suffer from an illness, such as industrial asthma or vibration white finger
Even though we have stated you have three years within which to make your claim, it is important to understand that the sooner you begin your case, the better. This is because to demonstrate the breach in the duty of care, your lawyer will need to present a case based on sound evidence. The evidence is easier to collect and more accessible in the immediate aftermath of an accident or injury.
With something as important as claiming personal injury compensation, you need to be confident you have the right personal injury lawyer for you and your case.
All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), the body that ensures that the high standards of practice expected from a solicitor are met.
What this doesn’t mean is that the level of service you receive will be the same from one solicitor to another. You will have specific needs relating to your case and you want to be confident that the personal injury lawyer has what it takes to see your case to its conclusion.
Claims for personal injury compensation can take several months to resolve. In the cases relating to severe, life-changing injuries or fatalities, it can take years to bring them to a conclusion.
Thus, you need to ask yourself – is this the best personal injury solicitor with a high level of service to help me win my case?
Like most things, you will probably research and review the personal injury solicitors who you think may be able to bring your compensation claim to a successful conclusion. There are many ways you can review potential personal injury solicitors.
- Online reviews – what do previous clients say about their service? As well as testimonials that the personal injury solicitor provides, take a look online to see if there are reviews on independent review sites about how the solicitor handled previous cases, what they specialise in terms of personal injury claims, how approachable they were, their fee structure and so on.
- Talk to them – there is no substitute for talking to a personal injury lawyer directly about your case. You’ll want to know if they have handled cases like yours before but you also want advice regarding your own specific case and the chances of success.
It is very important to ask the solicitor about their fee structure. With No Win No Fee, you may not pay anything if you lose your case but you will if you win your compensation claim. And you want to know how much a personal solicitor in Grimsby or anywhere else in the UK will charge.
If you live or work in Grimsby or suffered your accident in this place, you may assume that using local, Grimsby personal injury solicitors would make sense.
In some ways, it does BUT what is more important is that you get the right personal injury solicitor who can see your case through to a successful conclusion. And this is why our panel of solicitors are drawn from lawyers from across the UK. You do not have to use a local solicitor for your claim.
What we do ensure happens locally to you, is the medical examination you may need to undergo as part of your compensation claim. This minimises travel time and stress, as well as making sure that your rehabilitation is not interrupted by having to travel across the country to see an independent medical examiner.
No matter where your chosen solicitor is based, they will have the expertise you need to make a compensation claim. They will have an in-depth understanding of the situation and circumstances that caused the accident. This may be an accident at work or the injuries you received after a slip, trip or fall.
Personal injury solicitors can also be experienced in compensation claims after road traffics accidents, as well as working with claimants who have suffered, life-changing injuries serious injuries. Working with the families who have suffered a bereavement due to fatal injuries received by a relative is also something a personal injury solicitor can do.
There are several industrial diseases that result in compensation claims being made today. You may have been exposed to substances that you didn’t realise were causing you harm but even though your employer did, was negligent in providing you with the correct personal protection equipment. Claims for mesothelioma compensation, for example, can be handled by a personal injury lawyer as can other industrial disease claims.
Medical negligence can occur in a range of medical circumstances, such as during birth, and may lead to life-changing illnesses or injuries. Specialist medical negligence claim lawyers can guide you through the process of making a claim against hospitals, clinics, a negligence claim against a GP or when medical procedures, treatments and misdiagnosis have occurred.
Accidents at work happen – and if it has happened to you, you must report it to your employer as soon as you can – with over a million workers in 2019/20 suffering some kind of accident at work. The resulting injuries vary from one that someone will recover fully from to those injuries that are life-changing. Unfortunately, during 2020/21, there were also 142 workplace fatalities.
Statistics Regarding Injuries At Work
Statistics from the HSE show us some of the most common causes of non-fatal workplace injuries. The numbers for slips, trips and falls at work all combine to account for 37% of injuries. Manual handling and lifting heavy loads are other big contributors.
We’ve included a graph below to better illustrate this breakdown.
The cause of these accidents could be anything from inadequate training to slipping on a wet floor. Either of these could be an example of employer negligence, meaning they may have breached their duty of care toward their employees as laid out in section 2 of the Health and Safety At Work etc. Act 1974.
Slips and falls don’t just happen at work, although the table above indicates that they were common in the workplace in Grimsby. In fact, slips and falls can happen anywhere such as in public spaces. From slipping on a wet floor at a supermarket to falling over an obstacle left out in a leisure centre, there are many different situations where the duty of care may have been breached.
Serious injuries are those that are life-changing or life-limiting. You may have been paralysed after an accident or a claimant may have suffered brain injuries that not only limits what they can do for themselves but alters their personality, leading to round-the-clock care. These claims can take years to resolve but with the right serious injuries specialist lawyer working alongside you, you have peace of mind that everything that can be done to bring your case to a successful conclusion will be done.
