Do I have a Personal Injury Claim?

Before going down the route of legal action it is important to determine whether there is a claim to be made. There are a few factors to consider before going down the legal route, one of the most important being that the accident must have occurred within the last three years. Other factors that must apply to your case include:
  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.
One of the first things we will do with you after you get in touch with us is to establish whether you have a valid claim. One of our experienced team will sit down with you and discuss, in detail, your case. Using this detail, we will then be able to determine how the factors listed above relate to your case and, if there is a claim to be made, we can then proceed with the case. We are able to provide legal advice on a wide variety of accidents, including:

 

Accident at Work Personal Injury Claims

We have helped a large number of clients who have sustained injuries in the workplace. Workplace injuries can come in many different forms and we have seen them for all manner of different industries and professions. Our track record of success makes us a great choice to handle your case if you have been injured at work. All employers owe a duty of care to their employees and must take all reasonable measures possible to mitigate the possibility of an accident in the workplace. If you have suffered an injury at work due to the negligence of another party then you are likely to have a strong claim for compensation. Even if some of the blame was your own, there may still be a claim to be made. The vital factor in making a claim for injuries sustained in the workplace is to prove that your employer did not have in place appropriate safeguarding measures.  Many of our clients in these situations are concerned about the effect making a claim against a current employer will have on their job position. It is important to remember that it is the employer’s insurance company that the claim is being pursued against and not them employer themselves.
 

Road Traffic Accident Claims in Biggleswade

Although a small market town, Biggleswade has a number of busy roads that run through or near it, particularly the A1. Sadly, road traffic accidents (RTAs) are a common occurrence on busy roads and as such, injuries related to RTAs happen fairly regularly. If you sustained an injury in an RTA that was not your fault then you may have a claim for compensation. No matter what kind of road user you were at the time of the accident, be it a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian (or any other kind of road user) you may still be entitled to a claim. To begin legal proceedings the RTA must have occurred within the last three years and, even if the person at fault was uninsured or untraceable we can still help you with your case.

Some of our clients come to us after suffering life changing injuries and families also come to us after losing a loved one in an accident.

We know we have the experience necessary to make a successful claim on your behalf and we also pride ourselves on our personal approach to these kinds of cases.

Slips, Trips & Falls

The occupiers / public liability laws state that all landowners owe a duty of care to any member of the public who is using the landowners land or property. If a member of the public is injured in an accident that happened as a result of the landowners negligence then they will be liable.
An example of this would be if a member of the public slipped or tripped in a shop or restaurant. The owner of the establishment would be liable if they had not taken all reasonable measures to mitigate the possibility of the accident occurring. The local councils and highways authorities can also find themselves liable if a member of the public is injured on a poorly maintained pathway or pavement.
 

Other Commonly Seen Injury Claims

Faulty Products

Product recalls have been popping up in the news with seemingly increasing regularity lately. Recalls happen as a result of a product being found to be faulty or not fit for consumption by the general public and this can range from cars to food stuffs. Unfortunately, however, there is often a lag time between a product being released and then being recalled and so members of the public can be exposed to the product. If you have been in the unfortunate situation where a faulty product has caused you injury or illness then get in touch with us today. We can help in determining whether you have a valid claim and how best to proceed with legal action. If you keep the associated documentation that came with the product such as receipts, instruction manual, the product itself (if possible) and any packaging then this will only serve to strengthen your position.

Animal Injuries

We have dealt with cases involving a wide variety of injuries caused by animals over the years. These have ranged in severity and have been anything from a dog bite to an injury sustained by being kicked by a horse. Animals can also cause accidents that lead to injuries indirectly. RTAs that have been caused by animals are one of the most common form of indirect animal injuries. If you have been injured by an animal, either directly or indirectly, then get in touch with us today to see how our expert team can help you pursue your compensation claim.
