It does not matter whether you live in Halifax or another location in the UK because Legal Expert offers their services to everyone nationwide and so it is good to know that you do not have to choose specifically located Halifax personal injury solicitors whose service standards may not match our own. Instead, you are free to choose a Legal Expert personal injury solicitor from our nationwide panel to represent you throughout your own claim whether this is a No Win No Fee car crash claim (we are experienced road traffic accident claims solicitors), or medical malpractice claim etc.
It could be that you are still at the stage of seeking advice and we can help you with this too. Perhaps you are looking for medical negligence advice because you feel you have an eligible claim for medical malpractice? Legal Expert are a No Win No Fee compensation specialist and will not only advise you but can then provide a personal injury lawyer from our panel of No Win No Fee personal injury solicitors should you choose to instruct us to fight your claim.
Considerable legislation already exists to support people like you and help them claim compensation but in order to do this as efficiently as possible, it is important to choose the best personal injury lawyer to represent you as the legal field can be complicated. A successful claim is often the result of experienced negotiation where a claim does not even reach court but is settled between the parties involved. Personal injury solicitors and lawyers based all across the country can provide this experienced negotiation, making it all round an easier process.
Legal Expert has years of experience providing personal injury compensation solicitors. As explained earlier we provide not just road traffic accident claims solicitors but can advise on other personal injuries no matter what the circumstances including work related injury and sickness and clinical negligence etc.
Your solicitor however will advise you to make a claim as quickly as possible because there is a 3 year time frame from medical diagnosis of your personal injury/sickness in which to make a claim. This means that some clients will be able to claim for injury or illness that took place years ago as long as the actual diagnosis has taken place within the last 3 years. If you are still suffering the effects of a workplace accident or industrial disease and have been diagnosed within the last 3 years, then please do contact us as soon as possible to discuss your case.
Can I claim compensation for my accident or injuries?
To win your personal injury case a personal injury solicitor will have to determine:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant who is the person/organisation you are claiming against
- This duty of care was breached by the Defendant
- This breach caused your personal injury or sickness
Your personal injury lawyer needs to begin collating evidence to support your claim as soon as possible.
Five reasons why you need to use a personal injury solicitor
Need to know why using a personal injury solicitor is the best option? Here are just 5 reasons you might need one:
1. It’s hard to go it alone without legal expertise
2. You can use solicitors without putting any money upfront
3. They can help win you more compensation than you’d get on your own
4. They have experience in how these cases are played out and know what your claim should be worth
5. They’ll take the stress of claiming away
As winning a compensation claim can be a lengthy process, it is important that you and your solicitor are on the same page in order to have a clear end aim in sight. This should include an accurate estimate of your compensation claim settlement. If you search online you will find compensation calculators that will offer to estimate this compensation figure for you but there is no alternative to speaking directly to a No Win No Fee compensation specialist who has the experience to consider all the deciding factors of your personal claim in order to provide a realistic estimate of the monetary figure you can expect to achieve.
Halifax personal injury solicitors supplied via Legal Expert will also be able to provide you with this figure. At present, the law can award two types of damages; for the injury itself and for damage based on other variables such as expenses which may include time taken off work, medical bills as well as other factors such as future work prospects etc.
Rating solicitors and lawyers online by reading reviews
As mentioned earlier; clients can search for personal injury solicitor reviews online or gain recommendations for speaking to family and friends. However, you could simply pick up the phone and contact Legal Expert. We are regulated by the SRA (Solicitors Regulation Authority) so you instantly know that you are in safe, professional hands throughout every step of the claim process.
When discussing if ‘No Win No Fee‘ really is free, many clients do not give enough thought to the fees that become payable should your case be won simply because it is a percentage of the compensation and not coming out of their own pocket. However, there can be a BIG difference in the final monetary figure you receive precisely because of the different fees charged by different solicitors. Legal Expert’s provided lawyers operate a transparent fee structure – a practice supported by the SRA.
Am I restricted to using solicitors in my area?
We live in the modern age of the internet, phone, email etc as well as secure legal postal services. This means that you don’t have to choose a local solicitor but can choose a Legal Expert solicitor to fight your claim.
If you use Legal Expert’s provided lawyers then the only stage of your claim that would have to be carried out near you is the medical examination. However, this is no problem as our firm works with medical experts across the whole of the UK and so an appointment will be arranged with a local expert for your convenience.
What is considered to be a personal injury you can claim for?
Any injury or illness inflicted on you because of someone’s negligent or dangerous action or inaction can lead to a claim. This can include:
Industrial disease claims
The workplace is a much safer place than it was in times gone by but no matter the health and safety procedures in place; accidents will always happen and work-related sicknesses occur. You can still claim for injuries and industrial disease suffered years ago as long as the diagnosis has been made within the last 3 years. We commonly process claims related to such industrial diseases as Carpal Tunnel (hand-arm vibration), respiratory and skin conditions, and occupation related cancers and damage to sight or hearing.
Please contact Legal Expert regarding any Industrial disease claim you have to receive expert advice.
Medical negligence claims
We expect the medical field to provide treatment that makes us better but unfortunately increasing numbers of people are seeking medical negligence advice because a duty of care has been breached. This breach may be due to a misdiagnosis or surgical error and can include clinical negligence such as a duty of care breached in a non GP/medical setting such as a dentist’s office etc.
Slip, trip, and fall injury claims
It may be that your personal injury is due to a slip or fall that has taken place at work, on work premises or in a public place. The diagnosis of any injuries will need to have been made within the last 3 years for you to make a claim.
Please contact Legal Expert for advice regarding your eligibility to make a claim to receive the compensation you deserve.
Serious injury claims solicitors
We often worry about becoming ill but, unfortunately, it is more likely that we will face an accident resulting in serious injuries that can alter our lives in ways that we never expected.
Legal Expert can offer a wise and professional hand throughout the shock of adapting to life after suffering serious injuries when making a claim for compensation. Not only can a successful monetary award offer closure, but it can also help to financially secure your future for yourself and your loved ones.
