Personal Injury Solicitors Specialising In All Injury Claims

The specialist lawyers on our panel work with a wide range of clients who are suffering from a variety of different injuries. Because of this, they’re very experienced in many different areas of personal injury claims.

The next few sections will focus on some of the more specific examples where you could sustain an injury due to negligence. If you have any questions at any point, then get in touch with us.

Road Traffic Accidents

If you have been unfortunate enough to have sustained an injury in a road traffic accident (RTA) then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Whatever your injuries may be, our Guildford personal injury solicitors are here to help you in your attempts to be awarded the compensation that you deserve.

Road traffic accident claims cover a wide range of incidents. This can include claims for car accidents, motorbike accidents and public transport accidents. Victims can be drivers, passengers or pedestrians and regardless of the circumstances, if you have been the victim of a road traffic accident then you should get in touch with our speciality RTA accident solicitors to see if you have a valid claim for compensation.

Accidents In A Public Place

Whether you are in the street, park or another public place in Guildford such as a shop, supermarket or restaurant, you should be free to go about your normal business without the risk of injury.

Businesses and public bodies such as councils are obliged to minimise any risks to ensure the public’s safety and for the most part, this is the case and most people are not accident victims. But sometimes accidents occur and if the accident was not your fault, then you should consider making a claim for your personal injury.

Serious Injury Claims

Huge disruptions in your life can occur if you have been the victim of a serious accident. Head, spinal cord and other serious injuries such as blindness or amputation can have lifelong consequences that can affect all parts of your life including:

  • Your family
  • Employment
  • Healthcare

Serious injuries can be hugely traumatic and as well as leaving you with life-limiting injuries, they can leave you with psychological conditions such as stress, anxiety and a host of other mental health issues.

Our specialist Guildford team of solicitors are proud to have made a real difference to countless people who have been the victims of serious accidents and have done all they can to help them claim compensation to assist them living a life as full as possible after their accident. If you have been the victim of a serious accident then don’t delay in getting help from our specialist Guildford personal injury solicitors.

Accidents At Work

All employers in the UK have a legal obligation to protect you from any possible risks that you face at work. From offices and shops to construction sites and factories, there is a wide range of accidents that can happen at your workplace if the appropriate safety guidelines are not followed.

Following an injury at work, your employer should report the incident to a government body called RIDDOR. If your employer fails to do this, then you can do it yourself.

Whilst there are many ways to suffer an injury work, the RIDDOR graph below shows that falling on the same level leads to over a quarter of all workplace injuries in the UK. This graph was put together using official RIDDOR statistics.

If you have been unfortunate to have been injured in an accident in the workplace, our accident solicitors are here ready and waiting to help you get the justice and compensation that you deserve.

Industrial Disease Claims

Thanks to the UK’s Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, your employer has a duty of care to protect you as an employee. Unfortunately, every year many people are the victims of industrial diseases due to employer negligence. These include:

  • Respiratory problems such as mesothelioma, asbestosis or occupational asthma
  • Repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, vibration white finger and bursitis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Hearing damage such as tinnitus, acoustic shock and noise-induced hearing loss
  • Chemical poisoning causing issues such as dermatitis

Defective Product Claims

Have you ever found yourself the victim of a defective product? In the UK, whatever you buy has to be by law fit for purpose and safe to use. Sometimes unfortunately this is not the case.

Maybe you have suffered an allergic reaction, been burned by hair colour or have been electrocuted by a faulty electrical product. Our Guildford personal injury team have helped many people claim compensation for a variety of these sort of claims so if you have been injured by a defective product, get in touch with our personal injury experts.

How Much Could Your Claim Be Worth?

There can be quite a few figures to take into account when considering your final compensation amount. Because of this, it can be difficult to come up with an estimate, especially in the early stages.

In this section, we will include some example figures from the Judicial College Guidelines (JCG). These are the guidelines that are used to calculate how much the injured party should be awarded for the pain and suffering associated with their injuries. You’ll find a small cross-section of these figures in the table below. This sum is known professionally as general damages.

Mental anguish(E) Where there is a fear that your life is about to end, or your lifespan is about to be severely reduced£4,380
Chest(g) Rib fractures or injuries of the soft tissue that cause pain/disabilities only a period of weeksUp to £3,710
Illness(b) - (iv) pain, cramps, and diarrhoea that vary in degree of severity and continue for a number of week or weeks (food poisoning, for example)£860 to £3,710
Neck(c) Minor - (iii) it will take no longer than 3 months for a complete recoveryUp to £2,300

Thumb(q) Complete loss£33,330 to £51,460
Leg(c) Less serious - (i) fractures or soft tissue injuries where the recovery is incomplete. A reasonably recovery will have taken place but the injured party will have been with an implant/limp etc.£16,860 to £26,050
Achilles Tendon(b) Serious - the tendon will have been completely severed and the repaired, but there will still be some weakness£23,460 to £28,240

There are also certain costs that you may need to cover as a result of your injury. For example, you may have prescriptions to pay for, or you may have experienced a loss of earnings due to your inability to attend work. These costs are known collectively as special damages.
