If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s actions then you may be able to claim compensation for your pain and suffering, for any financial losses you have incurred and for any treatment or rehabilitation you require to help you on the road to recovery. You may also be able to claim compensation on behalf of a relative who has been injured or who has died in circumstances where someone else was to blame.
There are strict time limits for making a compensation claim for personal injury so it is important not to delay in seeking advice. A claim may be possible where you or your relative have suffered a physical or mental injury, contracted a disease, developed an illness or died prematurely.
Our experienced personal injury lawyers can help in a range of situations where injury or death has occurred as a result of negligence, including:
- accidents at work resulting in physical injury, including hearing damage or loss of a limb;
- mental injury sustained at work, for example severe stress brought on by a heavy workload;
- work-related illness, such as lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos;
- road traffic accidents resulting in injury or death;
- injury or death caused by the handling of faulty goods or inadequately performed services;
- injury or death sustained as a result of inadequately supervised or poorly maintained public spaces, including incidents of drowning in public swimming pools or tripping over uneven paving slabs;
- injury or death caused by mistakes made by medical professionals, including GPs, hospital staff, dentists, opticians and cosmetic surgeons;
- injury or death caused by routine vaccinations;
- injury or death caused by criminal behaviour where you or a relative have been the victim of a crime;
- injury or death resulting from mistreatment while you or a relative were in police custody; and
- injury or death caused by mistreatment while in a hospital, care home or residential setting.
