What Is A Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is when someone claims compensation for an injury or illness they have experienced, which was caused by negligence on the part of a third party. This third party could be another person, such as an irresponsible driver, or an organisation, such as a business or a hospital.
For example, if you are served food that was past its expiry date in a restaurant and suffer food poisoning as a result, you could be entitled to sue the restaurant management.
In Great Britain, there is a three year statute of limitations on personal injury claims, which means that you have three years from the time that you became injured or ill, or were diagnosed with your injury or illness, in which to make your personal claim. Compensation settlements for personal injury claims can be worth higher amounts if you have suffered a serious injury or illness. As such, they are always worth pursuing. If you believe you are entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, call Legal Expert today to speak to one of our advisors.
How Can Your Personal Injury Solicitor Help You Claim Compensation?
To be entitled to claim compensation, your personal injury case will have to meet certain requirements. Below is a summary of what your personal injury lawyer will have to prove.
- Firstly, your personal injury lawyer will have to prove that you, the Claimant, was owed a “duty of care” by the Defendant. In legal terms, being owed a duty of care means that another party is required to uphold the person’s health and safety, by fulfilling their responsibilities to them. In the case of a workplace for example, this would be providing the workers with a safe and hygienic working environment where there are not any hazards putting them at risk.
- Secondly, the personal injury lawyer has to prove that because of a negligent action or inaction on their part, the Defendant broke their duty of care towards you. Again in the case of a workplace, this could be not fixing a broken railing on a staircase.
- Finally your personal injury solicitor will have to provide evidence that the Claimant’s injury or illness was caused by the negligent action or inaction, on the part of the Defendant. Using the example of the workplace again, if an employee falls because of a broken railing on a staircase and breaks their ankle, this would mean that the employer’s negligence directly caused their injury.
If you use a solicitor from Legal Expert to handle your personal injury claim, it will be their responsibility to collect evidence to support your claim.

Do I Have To Use A Local Solicitor?
It’s a common misconception that if you are making a personal injury claim, you have to use a personal injury solicitor that is local to where you live. Many people think that if they live in a specific area, they will have to use a solicitor with offices in the same area or close by. In fact, Legal Expert can provide you with a solicitor that can cover anywhere in the country. This is because we prioritise the solicitor’s skills and experience being relevant to your personal injury case, over their location.
Understandably, many clients worry that communication may suffer if they do not use a local solicitor to make their personal injury claim. However, in this day and age of digital communications such as email, mobile phones and other methods, this need not be the case.
Of course, if you require a medical assessment, Legal Expert can arrange for you to have this done locally at a time and place which is convenient to you. Remember, whilst our offices are not based here, we can help you just as well. Our medical experts close by are;

What Type Of Personal Injury Claims Do We Help People With?
If you have been injured, or made ill by an accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

Industrial Disease Claims
When you are at work, your employer has a duty of care towards you. This is codified in the Health and Safety Act of 1974. This means that if you work with hazardous substances, your employer is legally obliged to take precautions to protect you from contracting an industrial disease such as asthma, asbestos exposure or siderosis, amongst other illnesses. If your employer failed to protect you from exposure to harmful substances, and this led you to becoming ill, you could be entitled to make an industrial disease claim.
Call Legal Expert today, to see if you are entitled to claim.
Clinical Negligence Claims
Clinical negligence is when a doctor, nurse, dentist or other medical practitioner, or a medical institution such as a hospital injures a patient, makes them ill, or worsens an existing medical condition because of negligence on their part. Examples of medical negligence can include a patient being prescribed the wrong treatment, or a doctor missing early signs of a serious illness like cancer. If you have experienced clinical negligence (also known as medical malpractice or medical negligence), in a hospital, doctor’s surgery, dentist or elsewhere, contact Legal Expert today to see how much compensation you could claim.

What Is No Win No Fee?
Legal Expert’s personal injury solicitors operate on a no win no fee basis. What does no win no fee mean for you? A no win no fee solicitor will offer you a conditional fee agreement (CFA), as an alternative to paying an upfront fee. This means that instead of paying any upfront or ongoing fees, the solicitor will handle your personal injury claim but will only charge you for their services if and when you win your claim. In the unlikely event that you do not win your personal injury claim, you will not be charged any solicitor’s fees, so there is no risk of going out of pocket if you do not win your claim. Because there is no financial risk involved in making a no win no fee claim and you do not have to pay an upfront fee, many of our clients find that making a no win no fee claim is the more affordable and less stressful option for claiming compensation for their injuries.
