Do I have a Personal Injury Claim?

One of our most frequently asked questions is from people wondering whether they have a valid claim after they have suffered an injury. It is very important to make sure that there is a strong claim against the defendant before embarking on any legal action. In the vast majority of cases you must begin legal proceedings within three years of the injury being sustained. In order to make a personal injury claim, the following four factors must apply: 
 
  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 our personal injury experts will discuss your case with you to help you decide whether or not there is a claim to be made and in what way the above points relate to your claim. We have a vast amount of experience in the following types of claim:
 

 

Accident at Work Personal Injury Claims

We have many years of experience of representing clients from a number of different professions and industries and have been successful in helping them gain compensation. There is a duty of care upon all employers meaning it is essential that they have all reasonable measures to safeguard the health and safety of their workforce. If you have been the victim of an accident at work that happened as a result of someone else’s negligence then you may be due compensation. Even if some of the fault was your own in the accident there may still be a case for legal action. If you are able to prove that your employer did not put in place reasonable practices to ensure your safety whilst you were carrying out your duties and the accident happened as a result of this negligence then it is likely you have a strong claim for compensation. Many of our clients are concerned about making a claim against their current employers, however, in effect, it is not the employer that is being pursued but the insurance company through which the employer has their employee liability insurance.
 

Road Traffic Accident Claims in Luton

Luton is a busy town with many major roads bisecting the town centre and the surrounding areas. Unsurprisingly, there a large number of road traffic accidents (RTAs) every year in Luton and many of these cause injuries for which you may be due compensation. To begin your claim, the RTA must have occurred within the last three years and no matter whether you were a driver, a passenger, a cyclist or a pedestrian, if you suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence you are likely due compensation. Even if the driver of the vehicle who was at fault for the accident is uninsured or cannot be traced, we are still able to help you gain the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.

Slips, Trips & Falls

Whenever a member of the public is using a piece of land or building belonging to someone else, there is a duty of care upon the owner of the premises to ensure the safety of any visitors. The owners are liable for any accidents that may occur, due to their negligence, under occupier’s liability and/or public liability laws.
For example, if an accident occurs as a result of a dangerous defect on a pathway, such as a pothole, then the highways Authorities and local councils (who are responsible for the proper maintenance of these pathways) would be liable. In much the same way, the owners of shops and restaurants have to ensure their premises are fit for public use.

Other Commonly Seen Injury Claims

Faulty Products

There have been numerous stories in the news of late reporting on product recalls which is often a result of a product found to be unsafe after a number of people have had adverse effects whilst using the product. From children’s toys to cars, if you have been hurt as a result of a product not being fit for purpose then compensation may be due. One of our expert solicitors can assist you with the process involved in making a claim. However, in the initial stages it would be beneficial if you have as much of the product’s identifiable material as possible. This includes, receipts, product packaging, instructions and, if possible, the product itself.

Animal Injuries

Animal injuries vary in severity but are a surprisingly common occurrence. From injuries caused directly by the animal, such as being bitten by a dog or kicked by a horse, to injuries where the animal has indirectly caused the accident, such as when an animal causes an RTA, there is often the possibility of a claim. Get in touch with us if you have been injured by an animal and see how we can help.
