Do I Have A Personal Injury Claim?
Whether you have a viable personal injury case or not, depends on a single pivotal factor. This is that the accident which caused your injuries, was at least partially the fault of a third party. For example, you slipped on a wet floor in a restaurant, that the staff had failed to clean up. In this case, we can clearly see the restaurant was to blame.
Additionally, you may be able to claim for accidents that were partly your fault. For example, if you were to trip over an obstacle in the street where workmen are repairing it, while talking on your phone. The defendant could argue that you were not paying due care and attention as your mind was on the phone call. However, the simple truth remains that the workmen should not have caused a hazard in the first place. In this case, the defendant could admit a percentage of liability, for example, 70%. The compensation awarded would be driven by this.
If you are unsure of how eligibility works, give Legal Expert a call, and we will explain it to you fully. Use the number at the bottom of this page to contact us.
How To Find The Right Solicitor For Your Injury Claim
Every personal injury solicitor that operates in the UK, must be registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). However, it is important to note that this isn’t a guarantee of their competence, only their ability to comply with the requirements laid down by the SRA.
Consider for a moment, that how effective your solicitor is at processing your claim, will have a direct effect on the chances of winning the claim, and also on how much you receive in compensation. It is vitally important that you choose the right legal firm. Some are generalists, providing a full range of legal services, with injury claims being just one of them. Others specialise in certain areas, such as property conveyancing.
Some solicitors, like us here at Legal Expert, specialise in personal injury cases. If you would like to learn how we can help you, give us a call on the number at the end of this page.
Look Into Reviews Of Personal Injury Solicitors In Newport Pagnell
You are going to have to put in some effort to find the perfect solicitor for your claim. However, a good way to trim the task down, is to read reviews of solicitors and use them to make a shortlist of potential legal firms to consider. Remember though, that these reviews are generally written and published by members of the public, they may not be 100% accurate, so it is always best to double check the facts. Consider the following when you are reading a review:
- How new is the review? Is it too old to be relevant?
- What is the claim being made for? Is it similar to your own claim?
- What was the reviewers experience like? The pros and cons of dealing with the solicitor?
- Did the solicitor offer to handle the claim under a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), and if they did, how much did they charge as a percentage of the compensation as their fee?
Keeping questions such as these in your mind as you check reviews, is a good way to sort the wheat from the chaff. If you would prefer some advice from Legal Expert, give us a call on the number down at the bottom of this page.
Am I Restricted To Using A Solicitor In Newport Pagnell?
You may think that you need to use a local personal injury lawyer to process your claim for you. This is incorrect; you can use any legal firm, no matter where they are located. If you want to use a local solicitor, you can. A much more important consideration though, is whether the solicitor you choose will be effective in processing your claim. You should choose the most suitable legal team, rather than one that is handily close by.
Some legal firms, such as us here at Legal Expert, operate on a national level. We help people all over the UK to claim injury compensation. Whilst we are not based in this area, we do also provide local value-added services, such as arranging for a medical examination in your area to support your claim. Call us on the number at the bottom of this guide to learn more about the Legal Expert national injury claims service, and what we can do for you.
What Personal Injury Compensation Claims Can We Conduct?
Legal Expert can handle almost any type of personal injury claim, including non-fault claims. However, some kinds of claims are more frequently seen than others. We have given each of these common types of claims their own section in this guide below. If your accident doesn’t slot into one of these sections it doesn’t mean we can’t help you make a claim, we can. Just give us a call on the number at the bottom of this page, explain how your accident happened, and we will let you know how we can be of help.
Industrial Disease Compensation Claims
Legal Expert, working as your personal injury solicitor, can help you to claim for work-related illnesses and diseases. Your employer has a legal obligation to provide you with a safe and healthy working environment at all times. When they fail to meet their obligations in this matter, then a valid route to making a claim will exist. This is also true for diseases that were caused many years ago. The time limit for making a claim starts from the moment your disease is diagnosed. So, for example, if you were exposed to asbestos dust many years ago at work, and you have contracted an asbestos-related disease, you should be able to claim, regardless of how long ago you were exposed to the health hazard. For more information, give us a call on the number at the end of the page, or check out this guide below:
NHS And Private Sector Medical Negligence Claims
Every medical professional automatically has a duty of care towards their patients. They must never do anything that could cause harm to a person they are caring for. This goes for all medical professionals: doctors, surgeons, specialists, therapists, nurses, care staff, etc. If one of them fails in this duty of care, harming a patient in a way that could have been avoided, then clinical negligence could be deemed to have occurred. The onus would be on your medical negligence solicitors to actually prove that the negligence took place, as there is a process that must be followed to show that the medical professional is, indeed, liable.
If you have been injured due to medical negligence, call Legal Expert on the number at the end of the page for more information. You can also read this guide, which covers medical negligence specifically:
Accident At Work Claims
As mentioned in the industrial disease section above, your employer must provide a safe environment for you to work in.
