Do I have a Personal Injury Claim?

This is one of the questions we are most frequently asked and is something that is important to make sure of, before heading down the route of legal action. In most cases the claim should be made within three years of the injury occurring. There are four important points to consider when making a personal injury claim:
  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.

Our expert personal injury solicitors can help walk you through these points and determine whether these points apply to your claim, and in what way. We deal with the following types of claim:


Accident at Work Personal Injury Claims Bedford

We have represented clients from wide ranging professions and industries in helping them to gain compensation. All employers have a duty of care to their employees when it comes to safeguarding their health  and safety whilst in the workplace. If you have had an accident at work that was not your fault then you may be able to claim compensation. There is also the chance that, even if the accident was your fault, or if some of the blame lies with you, a claim can still be made. This is reliant on being able to prove that your employer did not take reasonable care for your safety whilst carrying out your job. Clients are often worried about pursuing a claim against their employer, but they do not need to be as every employer should have Employer’s Liability Insurance and so, in effect, you are pursuing the insurance company, rather than your employer.

Road Traffic Accident Claims in Bedford

It is a commonly known fact that most road traffic accidents (RTA) happen near your home. Bedford has many busy and potentially dangerous roads and, just like every major town and city in the UK, there are a large number of road traffic accidents every year. In order to claim compensation, the RTA which has led to you suffering personal injury must have occurred within the last three years. It is possible to claim no matter whether you were a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a cyclist or any other kind of road user. Even if the driver who was at fault for the accident is uninsured or untraceable we can still assist you in getting fair compensation for the injuries you have suffered.

Life Changing Injury Claims and Fatal Accident Claims Bedford

When your family has been affected by a serious accident, having a specialist to help with the necessary claim who you can sit down with, can make a big difference. We often help families with the initial questions and issues that are not necessarily part of the claim but are the main concerns in the aftermath of the accident.

Slips, Trips & Falls

The owners of land and buildings all have a duty of care to members of the public who are using their premises. These owners are liable under occupier’s liability and/or public liability laws if an individual hurts themselves as a result of this duty being neglected.

An example of this would be the Highways Authorities and local councils who are required to ensure that highways are maintained to a safe standard. This includes fixing dangerous defects such as potholes. Similarly, the owner of a shop/restaurant has a responsibility to ensure that their premises are safe for members of the public to use.

Other Commonly Seen Injury Claims

Faulty Products

It seems like there are more and more reports of product recalls due to the product being found unsafe after being released to the public. From children’s toys to cars, there is the potential for these faulty goods to cause harm to the user. So long as you keep as much of the product’s identifiable material (receipt of purchase, instructions, and the product itself, if possible) and the product caused harm to you in some way then you may have a viable claim. Our team of expert solicitors can walk you through the steps to making a successful claim against the manufacturer.

Animal Injuries

Animal injuries are surprisingly common occurrences. From being kicked by a horse, to being bitten by a dog, to even RTA’s caused by animals in the road, there is the possibility for a claim in all of these scenarios. Give us a call today if you have been injured by an animal to see how we can help.
