Redbridge Personal Injury Solicitors – No Win No Fee Claims
By Mark Ainsdale. Last Updated 27th September 2021. Welcome to our Redbridge personal injury solicitors guide. The London Borough of Redbridge is in East London and borders the county of Essex. If you are a Redbridge resident who has been injured in an accident attributable to someone else in the last three years, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. Whether your accident involved: medical negligence, a road traffic accident, an accident at work, or another scenario, as long as your accident was attributable to negligence, which itself was due to the actions of a third party, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries.
Trust Legal Expert, a specialist and expert personal injury law firm, presents a top-class personal injury solicitor covering the Redbridge area to handle your claim.
What Does A Personal Injury Solicitor Do?
A personal injury solicitor represents an individual who is claiming personal injury compensation. The solicitor provides the claimant with legal services and handles the workload of the compensation claim. Suppose you have been made injured, sick, or harmed in Redbridge or elsewhere in an accident that you were not responsible for. In that case, you could be entitled to claim compensation from the person, business or organisation responsible.
If you trust a personal injury solicitor from Legal Expert to handle your claim, we are sure that you will be happy with the service that you receive. Our personal injury solicitors for Redbridge have up to thirty years of experience in the field. They will always fight to secure you the best possible compensation settlement you are entitled to.

If you have valid grounds to claim, we will supply you with an excellent personal injury solicitor covering London (or elsewhere) to help you to claim compensation. Call 0800 073 8804 today to enquire about making a personal injury claim.
How The Specialist Team From Legal Expert Can Help You
Legal Expert is a personal injury claims law firm that provides solicitors to people across the country, including Redbridge. Suppose you have valid reasons to claim compensation for an accident or injury attributable to negligence due to somebody else’s actions. In that case, we can probably help you claim compensation for that negligence. We will now look into what criteria you need to meet to claim personal injury compensation in more detail.
How Can Our Specialist Team Help You?
Below are some of the main criteria for making a personal injury claim. To successfully make this type of claim on behalf of you, your personal injury solicitor will have to prove the following:
- First of all, your solicitor will have to provide evidence that you (the claimant) were owed a “duty of care” by the defendant. In legal terms, this means that you had a relationship where the defendant was supposed to uphold your health and safety. For example, hospital staff are obliged to deliver high standards of care towards the patients, and drivers have a responsibility to drive in a way that will not endanger other road users.
- Secondly, your personal injury lawyer will have to prove that the defendant did not uphold the duty of care, and this negligence caused an avoidable accident. So if we take the example of a drunk driver that hit you as you were crossing the road, they failed their duty of care towards you as a pedestrian.
- Thirdly, the solicitor will have to prove that the accident was a direct cause of your injuries. For example, suppose you suffered a pedestrian accident because of a drunk driver. In that case, your solicitor could use eyewitness accounts, CCTV footage and your medical report to prove this was what caused your injuries.
If you believe you meet the criteria to make this personal injury claim, call Legal Expert today. The Redbridge personal injury solicitors that we work with can then help you from that point onwards.
Things To Consider When Choosing A Personal Injury Lawyer
Here are some quick tips for finding your personal injury lawyer covering the Redbridge area to represent your claim.

In that case, whether they are in London or elsewhere or a claims management company (CMC), we recommend that you use a personal injury law firm like Legal Expert to ensure that a qualified personal injury solicitor handles your claim.
- Ensure that your solicitor is fully qualified and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Alternatively, call Legal Expert to find the right personal injury solicitor to handle your claim. We can provide you with a solicitor that has the right skills and experience to handle your claim.

Personal Injury Claim At Work

If you have been involved in an accident at work because your employer neglected to provide you with a safe and hygienic working environment, call Legal Expert today to see if you are entitled to claim compensation.

Industrial Disease Claims
As we have already mentioned, according to the Health and Safety Act of 1974, employers have a duty of care towards their employees. This means that they are responsible for providing them with a safe and hygienic working environment. One area where this is essential is when employees work with hazardous substances. In this case, your employer is legally obliged to apply control measures to protect you from contracting an industrial disease such as asthma, siderosis, cancer, or diseases related to asbestos exposure, amongst other illnesses.
If your employer failed to protect you from exposure to harmful substances, which led you to become ill, you could be eligible to make an industrial disease claim. Settlements can often be higher in cases of serious illnesses. Call Legal Expert today to enquire about finding a solicitor to represent your injury claim.
Clinical Negligence Claims
If you have experienced clinical negligence in Redbridge or London, you could be entitled to make a clinical negligence compensation claim. What is clinical negligence? Clinical negligence, also known as medical malpractice or medical negligence, is when a medical institution or practitioner fails a patient by delivering substandard care. This could include making a surgical error, misdiagnosing a patient, overdosing a patient on their medication, or many other forms of negligence. Suppose this medical malpractice causes the patient to become injured, ill or worsens a medical condition that they are already suffering from. In that case, the patient could be entitled to claim compensation for the resulting harm caused. Call Legal Expert today to get started with your clinical negligence claim.
For more information about clinical negligence, see our online guide today.
Slip, Trip And Fall Injury Claims

Call Legal Expert today to take advantage of our slip, trip and fall claims.
Severe Injury Claims
Sadly, some of the people who come to us to claim compensation do so because they have suffered a severe or life-changing injury or illness because of negligence on the part of someone else. Suppose you have legitimate grounds to claim compensation for a severe injury or illness. In that case, you must do so because it will hold the party responsible, accountable, discouraging them from neglecting their duty of care towards others in the future.

Redbridge Personal Injury Solicitors FAQs
When could I receive my first compensation offer?
This might come at any time once the claims process begins and the defendant admits liability.
Will the first offer match my compensation target?
This isn’t usually the case, with the opening offer often falling short of what you wish to receive.
Why is the first offer lower than your settlement target?
The defendant wishes to avoid paying the maximum if possible, determining if the claimant would settle for less.
Should I turn down the opening offer?
The final decision always lies with the claimant, but we recommend rejecting it because larger offers are to come.
What will happen if I do turn down the opening offer?
If you do this, then that offer is no longer on the table. And so you cannot suddenly decide to accept that same offer further down the line.
Could I make a counter-offer?
Yes, you and your solicitor could respond by suggesting an alternative figure that you would happily settle on.
Would the defendant be willing to present my counter-offer?
They may do so as long as you’re able to justify why that particular figure would be suitable.
How long does it take for me to receive my settlement once the agreement happens?
The defendant has a maximum period of 28 days in which to pay compensation to the claimant.
