Legal Expert is a team of solicitors with a proven track record of successfully winning compensation across a very wide range of claims. We have hundreds of happy customers, let us process your personal injury claim for you, and you will join their ranks.
Our personal injury solicitors for Liverpool approach every claim to get the claimant the maximum level of compensation possible. We never push things too far, though, and won’t take any action that could put your ability to claim risk.
As part of our national claims service, we offer additional ways to help you, free of charge. For example, we can arrange for you to receive a completely free medical examination in the Liverpool area. The doctor’s report can be used to prove how bad your injuries were and the effect they had on your life.
The better your accident claim solicitor is at processing injury claims, the higher chance you have of winning compensation. All solicitors are not the same; some focus on specific types of cases, others only provide legal services such as witnessing a will or certifying legal documents. And then there are others, such as us here at Legal Expert, who specialise in claiming compensation for people who have been injured in some kind of accident. Choose the legal firm most suited to processing your claim. And please continue reading to find out more about the Liverpool personal injury solicitors.
Reviews Of Injury Solicitors Can Be Helpful To Read
Choosing a good solicitor can be challenging. If you have never had any dealings with a legal firm before, you don’t have any point of reference; you don’t know what is good and bad. Community reviews sites, the kind that let members of the public write reviews, can be a great starting point in your search. If you can find such a site, be sure to compare and make a note of the following things;
- Is the review you are reading up to date?
- Is the review you are reading about a claim that is similar to yours?
- What does the reviewer have to say?
- What are the good and the bad points?
- What fee structure does the solicitor offer?
- Can they take your claim under a No Win No Fee agreement?
- What percentage of the final settlement will they charge?
Does The Location Of A Solicitor Affect Your Claim?
You might believe you need to use a local solicitor in Liverpool to process your injury claim. You can if you wish, but this might not be the right choice. There is no reason to use a local solicitor; you are free to choose any legal team you like, no matter where they are situated.
Some legal firms, such as us here at Legal Expert, work nationally, helping people all across the UK claim compensation. We could even organise a medical consultation in Liverpool with one of our experts, such as,
Jahanzeb Noor Ali
88 Rodney Street
72 Rodney street
Legal Expert is a personal injury firm that handles a whole range of different injury claims. We can tackle any type of claim, from a minor injury caused by tripping in a restaurant to fatal road traffic accidents and clinical negligence cases. Below, we have covered some of the more common types of claims we process. Although Liverpool personal injury solicitors can handle any type of claim, these below are the most frequent we help people win compensation for. And we can advise you further on how to claim.
Industrial Disease Claims
Some types of jobs expose workers to the risk of industrial illness. For example, miners at risk of developing lung conditions or nuclear waste workers could be at a greater risk of developing cancer. Additionally, there are legacy risks, such as breathing in asbestos dust, causing people to become ill many years, even decades after they were exposed. If your employer has put you at risk, resulting in a work-related illness or disease, Legal Expert should be able to process a claim for you.
Medical Negligence In Liverpool
When a doctor, nurse, consultant, or any other member of the medical staff who is treating you fails in their duty of care, causing you harm, medical negligence may have occurred. Legal Expert can help people to claim for injuries and medical conditions caused by medical negligence in Liverpool.
Workplace Accidents and Injuries in Liverpool
Every employer in the UK has a legal obligation to maintain a safe working place for their employees. This is outlined in the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974. When Health & Safety protocols fail, leading to an accident at work that injures a staff member, Legal Expert should be able to help the employee claim compensation.
Slip, Trip, And Fall Claims
Slips, trips and falls are very common reasons why people approach us here at Legal Expert to process an injury claim. An accident leading to slip, trip, and fall claims can happen in many ways, indoors or outdoors, for example:
- Falling due to stumbling over a badly set paving slab in the street.
- Tripping on warped wooden floorboards in a shop.
- Slipping on spilt food in a fast-food restaurant that was not signposted as a hazard.
These accidents can happen anywhere. In an office, at the local health clinic, the library, a supermarket, or just walking down the street. If you injure yourself in a slip, trip or fall accident, no matter the location, Legal Expert should help you claim for your injuries.
Serious Injury Compensation Claims
When Legal Expert begins processing a claim for a person who has sustained serious injuries, we know we may need to claim additional types of damages. These injuries often leave the victim permanently disabled in some way. Because of this, we would seek compensation for the effect the injury will have on the future life of the claimant, for preventing them from working, loss of future prospects, etc.

What is the personal injury claims time limit?
The victim of an accident that wasn’t their fault has 3 years in which to make a claim.
When does this time limit begin?
It starts from either the date of their accident or their date of knowledge about their injuries via the accident.
Are there any exceptions to this 3-year rule?
Yes. The rules are different for historical sexual abuse claims via the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA).
How is this the case?
So, for sexual abuse claims via the CICA, you generally have 2 years after reporting the abuse to the police.
What would I have to prove for my case to be successful?
This is proving the defendant breaching a duty of care owing towards you, thus causing an accident and your injuries.
How long does a case usually take to reach its conclusion?
The majority of cases result in an out-of-court settlement within 12-18 months of legal proceedings beginning.
How close to the potential trial date would the settlement agreement happen?
This depends on whether the defendant accepts liability, but it could happen right up to the day before the trial.
When will I receive my compensation settlement?
You will be in receipt of your settlement no more than 28 days after reaching the agreement between both parties.
