If you have been injured in an accident or incident in Islington, you may be rightly thinking about claiming compensation. This guide reveals everything you need to know about working with personal injury solicitors who covers the Islington area. You will discover how to find a quality personal injury lawyer, information on our service, which you can also get on 0800 073 8804, and an insight into the different types of claims.

What are personal injury claims?

A personal injury claim involves claiming to receive personal injury compensation if you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault. If you have sustained injuries, solicitors and lawyers can put forward a case outlining what has happened to you and why you need a payout. This is critical because it ensures you receive the money you need to help you through your recovery. Get in touch today about how to claim.

How our team help people to make personal injury claims

We have years of experience in the personal law sector, and we can help you get the full amount of compensation you deserve. As you will see from our website, we pride ourselves on being transparent and empowering our clients with all of the knowledge they need to make the right decisions. Our Islington personal injury solicitors will then handle your case for you so that you can focus on your recoveries.

Am I eligible to claim compensation for an injury, which was not my fault?

Generally, speaking you need to prove three things to be true to secure personal injury compensation. The first is that the incident occurred because of someone else’s error or negligence. After all, you can’t go ahead and claim if you are the reason you ended up injured. Being clumsy is not a valid excuse for securing a payout. If you were partially to blame, give us a call. You may still be entitled to a payout. However, you should expect this to be lower to reflect your involvement.

The second is that you received professional medical attention for your injuries. And thirdly, the incident must have occurred within the last three years, as this is the time limit for all cases. Nonetheless, all you need to do is give us a call on our legal helpline, and we will tell you whether you have a good chance of getting compensation. We will give you a realistic assessment regarding the strength of your case.

Five reasons why you need a solicitor to handle your claim

If you want to claim compensation, you need to work with accident claims solicitors in London or elsewhere in the UK. Here are five reasons why…

  1. Personal injury law is complex and requires an experienced professional
  2. You won’t get a second chance to make a claim
  3. You are likely to receive a lower settlement if you try to make a case yourself.
  4. There is a strict time limit on personal injury cases
  5. The other party will likely have a lawyer, and so you will be at a distinct disadvantage without one

It can be helpful to read reviews of different solicitors

The first thing that you should consider when determining who to employ to deal with your personal injury compensation claim is what previous customers thought about the service they received and whether the claim was a success or not. Reading personal injury solicitor reviews can be extremely helpful. After all, this is a great way to get an insight into the level of service offered and the success the solicitor or the company has had so far. A credible company will have all of their reviews available on their website for everybody to see.

This will not just be one or two reviews, which they have hand-selected themselves; this will be all the feedback that has been left accompanied by the person’s name and the date they left the comment. Moreover, ideally, their reviews will be left via a neutral, external reviewing website, like Trustpilot, to ensure authenticity, rather than being copied and pasted. Here at Legal Expert, we are more than happy to supply you with reviews we have received from our past clients. So please get in touch with our Islington personal injury solicitors at any time.

Do I need to make a claim with an Islington or local North London lawyer?

Many people assume that the only option available to them is to use personal injury solicitors in Islington or, at the very least personal injury solicitors in North London. However, this is not the case. You can use the services of personal injury lawyers based anywhere in the UK. This is because cases today are handled via phone and email. Therefore, you can choose someone based on their reputation and experience, rather than being forced to work with someone purely because they are based nearby. Please speak to us about how to claim online today.

Claim for instances of industrial diseases

There are many different types of industrial diseases that you may need to claim for. This includes asbestos-related illnesses, industrial deafness, and more. With these personal injuries, you will often claim an ex-employer. This is because some incidents of workplace accidents take place over a long period. This is relevant to the likes of industrial diseases. In these incidents, you will have three years to make a claim from when the injury was diagnosed rather than when the incident occurred, as it will be impossible to pinpoint this. Yet others, such as construction accidents, will be from the date the accident happened. This is an area that our Islington personal injury solicitors will be able to advise on further.

Claim for cases of medical negligence

We can also help you to claim clinical or medical negligence. We know that these cases are incredibly distressing and traumatic. After all, when you go to the hospital or see your GP, you expect to get better, not worse. However, there have been several instances whereby mistakes have been made, resulting in people falling ill or picking up an injury. This could be because a medical professional has incorrectly diagnosed an illness, for example, or they may have missed the illness altogether.

It could also be because there was an error made during surgery. Another example includes a lack of hygiene in the hospital, or simply it could be a case of poor care. Either way, it is only right that you claim clinical negligence or medical malpractice. You can call our friendly team today for expert medical negligence advice. Moreover, the table below gives some insight into the NHS hospitals, medical centres, and professionals in the Islington area, so you can see if you need a medical, then there are places nearby to go to.

Islington Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs

Who is the defendant?

This is the person or organisation that the claimant is suing.

What is a Letter Of Claim?

This is the written statement that the personal injury solicitor sends to the defendant stating the claimant’s intention to sue.

How does the defendant respond to the Letter Of Claim?

The defendant has 28 days to accept liability, thus potentially leading to a quick settlement.

But what if they deny liability?

At that stage, the legal proceedings will officially begin.

Why might the defendant not accept liability?

It’s possible that they may genuinely believe they don’t hold responsibility. But they may also do this to avoid accepting they were at fault in an attempt to avoid paying out compensation.

At what stage could the defendant choose to accept liability?

This could happen at any point, though the sooner they do so, the better if the evidence is overwhelming.

Might the defendant wait until the trial to accept liability?

Sometimes, it will be right before the trial that the defendant could finally begin to agree on a potential settlement.

But what if the defendant never admits liability until the case reaches court?

In that scenario, a judge and jury would potentially decide if the defendant truly is responsible and should pay compensation.
