Do I have a Personal Injury Claim?

There are a number of factors that must be considered before embarking on a personal injury legal case. Almost all cases must be pursued within three years of the accident which caused the injury. The following four factors must also apply to your case:
  1. The defendant owed you a duty of care
  2. The defendant breached that duty of care
  3. You suffered injury/damage as a result of the defendant’s breach of duty
  4. The injury/damage which you suffered is not too far removed from the defendant’s wrongdoing.
When you initially get in touch with us our first goal is to establish whether you have a claim to be pursued. One of our expert team will sit down with you and discuss your case in detail and determine how the above factors relate to your claim. Once this is done we can begin work on the legal proceeding. We can provide legal advice on injuries sustained in a variety of accidents, including:

 

Accident at Work Personal Injury Claims

This is one of our most common personal injury claims and, over the years, we have assisted with a wide variety of clients from many different industries and professions. We are proud to say we have been successful in the vast majority of these cases. All employers owe their employees a duty of care in the workplace and it is of paramount importance that all reasonable measures have been put in place to ensure the health and safety of the employees is protected. If you have been injured at work as a result of the negligence of someone else, then you may have a strong claim for compensation. Occasionally, even if you were partly to blame, you may still have a case. The most important thing with these types of claim is to prove that your employer did not have in place the necessary actions to mitigate the chances of an accident. Many of our clients are concerned about the affect that taking legal action against a current employer will have on their job (if they are still employed by the party in question). In this case, it is important to remember that it is the employer’s insurance company that is being pursued and not the employer themselves.

Road Traffic Accident Claims in Baldock

There are many busy roads that go through and go around Baldock and, unfortunately, this often means that road traffic accidents (RTAs) are a common occurrence. Even in what may seem like a minor RTA an injury may still be sustained and, if you were injured in an RTA that was not your fault then you may be due compensation. It does not matter in these situations whether you were the driver of a vehicle, riding a bike, a pedestrian or any other kind of road user, if you sustained an injury you may have a right to a claim. The RTA must have occurred within he last three years for you to be able to pursue legal action and we can even help if the vehicle at fault for the accident was uninsured or can not be traced. Our main goal is to get you the compensation you deserve.

Life Changing Injury Claims and Fatal Accident Claims Baldock

Unfortunately, we do find ourselves working on cases where the injured party has sustained life changing or fatal injuries. In this scenario it is important you get the very best personal injury solicitors available. Our years of experience and expert knowledge makes us a fantastic choice to pursue your claim for you. Not only that, but we add in an extra element of personal and friendly service to answer any questions that you have at this difficult time.

Slips, Trips & Falls

All landowners owe the general public a duty of care if they are using the landowners land or property. If an accident occurs due to the landowner’s negligence, then they will be liable for any legal action the injured party decides to take. This liability falls under he occupiers liability/public liability laws.
For example, if someone slips in a shop or restaurant due to negligence then the owner of the shop would be liable for that accident. Another example would be an accident that has happened due to a poorly maintained road or pathway. Defects such as cracks and potholes make trips a possibility and, if someone suffers an injury as a result the highways authority / local council would be liable as these organisations are responsible for the proper upkeep and maintenance of these pathways.
 

Other Commonly Seen Injury Claims

Faulty Products

There have been multiple reports in the news of mass recalls after a product has been found to be faulty or not fit for purpose. These products could range from food stuffs to cars. Unfortunately, the recalls usually only happen after the public have been exposed to the, potentially harmful, products. If you have been unfortunate enough to have been injured or been made unwell by a product that was not fit for purpose then get in touch with us today to see if you are due compensation. If you have kept supporting documentation such as receipts, packaging, the product itself (if possible) and any other associated documentation then this will only strengthen your claim. Once you have enquired, one of our team of expert lawyers will talk your case over with you, ensure you have a strong claim, and then pursue further legal action if required.
 

Animal Injuries

Animal injuries are a surprisingly common occurrence. They may range in severity and we have seen a huge number of different cases, from dog bites to horse kicks in our many years as a personal injury solicitor. Animal injuries can also be applied to an injury that was sustained by an accident indirectly caused by an animal. Road Traffic accidents caused by animals, for example, is one more common indirect animal injury we deal with. If an animal has caused you injury, either directly or indirectly, then you may have a claim for compensation. Get in touch with us today and we will help determine whether you have a case and proceed with legal action.
