What is an Accident Claim?

If you or your loved one has been involved in an accident, it may be possible to make a compensation claim for the injuries and financial losses suffered as a result. A personal injury claim will be successful if we can prove that another individual or an organisation is at least partly responsible for what happened.

Additional information on Accident Claims

Reasons you might need an expert solicitor:

  • If you or a loved one have been involved in a road accident as a driver, pedestrian, passenger, cyclist or motorcyclist
  • If your child has been involved in a different type of accident, such as a serious playground accident or an accident at school or nursery
  • If you or a loved one have been involved in an accident at work such as falling from a height, an object has fallen on you or your limb has been caught in an unguarded or defective machine
  • If you or your loved one has developed an illness or disease through their work
  • If you or a loved one have been involved in a different type of accident, for example a fall in a public place
