I Have Been Injured Due To Someone Else’s Negligence, Can I Claim Compensation?
The key fact in any personal injury claim, is whether you are eligible to claim compensation or not. If your injuries were caused by a third party either directly (such as in a road traffic accident), or indirectly (such as a workplace illness), a valid route to making a claim could exist.
In the UK, there is a vast amount of legislation in place to protect the public from hazards presented by organisations and other private individuals. When one or more of these legislations is breached, and the result of the breach is an injury to a private citizen, then the party guilty of the breach (defendant) becomes liable. The injured party (claimant), can then engage a solicitor to process a personal injury claim on their behalf.
Legal Expert can act as your solicitor to process your injury claim. Call us on the number at the end of this page, and we will explain how we can help you.
Getting The Right Legal Team Is Vital To Your Claim
Choosing the right personal injury solicitor to process your claim is vital. Consider for a moment, that some claims can take months or even years to reach a resolution. Using the best solicitor for your particular claim, could potentially reduce this delay significantly. Furthermore, the amount of compensation you receive, will directly relate to how competent your legal team is. So, we can clearly see that the better your lawyer is, the quicker your claim could be settled, and the higher your compensation payment would potentially be.
All solicitors in the UK are required, by law, to be registered with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority (SRA). However, registration doesn’t mean the solicitor is competent; it just means that they have complied with all the requirements that the SRA sets out.
Legal Expert is an experienced and skilled legal team, that can process a claim on your behalf. If you would like to know more about the service we offer, and begin your claim with us, call us now on the number at the bottom of this page.
Reading Reviews Of Legal Services Covering Ipswich
Arguably, the best way to find a good solicitor is to pick up the phone and start calling potential candidates. However, the smart way to approach this problem would be to first check reviews of solicitors, to create a shortlist that you will then phone. If you do decide to check out some reviews, consider the following:
- Is the review you are reading recent enough to be useful?
- Is the review you are reading related to a claim similar to your own?
- How has the reviewer rated the solicitor? What were the good and bad points of their experience?
- What kind of fee structure did the solicitor offer, or what kind of percentage if they operated under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA)?
- If there are any comments left about the review, do the commenters generally agree with the reviewer or not?
Once you have shortlisted a number of solicitors by reading reviews, it is time to move on to making a selection. Keep in mind though, that many reviews are written by members of the public, and therefore may not have been checked to make sure they are correct. Always double check the facts. Alternatively, you can give us a call here at Legal Expert, and we will offer you some free advice on how to proceed with your claim. Call us on the number below to facilitate this.
Do I Have To Use A Lawyer Or Solicitor In My Area?
You may think that you must use a local personal injury lawyer, to process your claim for you. Of course, you can use a local firm if you prefer, but there is no compelling reason to. A much more important consideration is how effective your legal team will be in pursuing compensation for you. Location is a secondary consideration.
You are free to use any solicitor you like, no matter where they are located. Some solicitors, such as us here at Legal Expert, specialise in personal injury claims and provide our service across the entire UK. We help people regardless of where they live, to get the compensation they are eligible for.
We can also arrange for you to receive a free medical examination in your local area. We will use the results of this examination to support your claim. Give us a call on the number at the end of this guide to learn how we can help you.

Common Accident And Injury Claims We Conduct
Legal Expert can act as your personal injury solicitor, to make almost any type of injury claim. As long as there is clearly a third party to blame, then you should be eligible for compensation.
However, there are certain types of claims that we see time and time again. These frequently seen claims are covered in their own sections below. If your own accident doesn’t fit into any of these sections, it doesn’t mean we can’t help you, we likely can. Just give us a call on the number at the end of this page, tell us how your accident happened, and we will let you know if we think we could process a claim successfully for you.
Industrial Disease Claims And Cases
Industrial illness and disease are something we can help people claim for. These types of claims are often made long after the cause of the disease was encountered. For example, workers who were exposed to asbestos dust many years ago, contracting mesothelioma recently.
If you need some advice on making an industrial illness or disease claim, call us on the number at the bottom of this page. You can also check out the guide at the link below:
Clinical Negligence Cases In Ipswich
Despite the best efforts of the NHS, occurrences of clinical negligence are still quite common in the UK. Every medical professional has a duty of care towards their patients, to never do them any harm. When a doctor, surgeon, specialist, nurse or some other kind of medical professional fails in this duty of care, and harms a patient, a case of clinical negligence may have occurred. This is not a clear-cut situation. It must be proven that the medical professional could have taken alternative action that would not have harmed the patient.
Legal Expert can act as your medical negligence solicitors, to process a negligence claim on your behalf. If you call us on the number at the end of the page, we can explain how we can help you. You can also check out the guide at the link below:
Accident In The Workplace Claims
The graph above, provided by the UK Health & Safety Executive, shows the number of work days lost due to work-related injuries and sickness going back to the year 2000. As we can see, a great many work days are still lost every year.
Every employer in the UK is required by law, to provide their workforce with a safe and healthy working environment. When the employer fails in this legal obligation, and this directly or indirectly results in harm to an employee, the employer may be liable to pay compensation.
Legal Expert can process a claim for a work-related illness or injury on your behalf. Call us on the number at the bottom of this page to proceed. You may also like to read the following guide:

Road Traffic Accident Claims
Road traffic accidents are the most common of all accidents in the UK each year. Anyone involved in a road traffic accident, including passengers and pillion riders, have the right to make a claim if they are injured in an accident caused by a third party. Furthermore, the dependants of a person killed in an RTA will also be able to make a compensation claim.
Road traffic accidents can range in severity from simple rear shunts, causing a minor case of whiplash, all the way up to high-speed accidents involving multiple vehicles, that resulted in one or more fatalities. No matter how your accident was caused, or what injuries sustained, you should be able to have a claim processed for you. However, in some cases, such as a person who intends to claim for whiplash, we would advise that the claimant submits to a free medical examination, which we can provide. This will enable you to prove the severity of your injuries.
Legal Expert can process a personal injury claim for you, if you have been injured in a road traffic accident. Call us on the number at the end of this guide to start your claim today.
