Personal Injury* Claims

When can you make a claim?

There are many circumstances in which a person can find themselves the victim of an accident that was not their fault. If this is the case, it may be possible to make a successful compensation claim for your injuries.

You can make a claim for injuries and losses sustained as a result of an accident, if a person, business or organisation is proven to be either entirely or partly to blame. You should always obtain legal advice before discussing matters with any other party.

An injury may be physical or psychological and can be as a result of a variety of different accidents including road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping over a raised flag stone, a faulty product or an illness caused by your working environment.
