At Personal Injury we go out of our way to make personal injury claims as simple and straightforward as we can. We appreciate the fact that, for many people, the idea of launching any kind of legal action is daunting and stressful, and that’s why we strive so hard to take as much of the work as we can out of the hands of our clients and into the hands of our experienced and highly qualified personal injury lawyers.
In recent times the concept of seeking compensation has come to be seen as something of a ‘get rich quick’ scam, devised and practiced by unscrupulous lawyers, but, as a respectable firm our approach couldn’t be further away from this. We simply think that someone who has been injured as a result of another’s negligence has every right to seek compensation for this injury, and we intend to make sure that this compensation is within the reach of everybody.
The process of actually making a claim is simplicity itself. Find a local personal injury attorney in your area or call us at
The first is that the claimant has suffered a personal injury. This injury could be a physical injury or a psychological injury, which is to say that it could be something as simple as whiplash following a car accident, or it could be the more complex scenario of a serious case of anxiety and depression brought about by the aftermath of the incident in question. The second fact which needs to be established is that the circumstances which led up to the injury occurring weren’t your fault.
Obviously, life can be a dangerous business, with risks lying in wait around every corner, and if you suffer from an accident for which no one can be blamed then that’s just simple bad luck, and something which you have to move on from. Often, however, there is clear blame to be apportioned, due to the negligence of either another individual, or of an organization such as an employer, city council or retailer. When this is the case, we feel it’s only right and proper that the responsible party should pay compensation and that the victim shouldn’t have to suffer financial hardship alongside their physical or mental anguish.
A personal injury claim will be pursued on the basis of expenses which have arisen as a direct result of the injury in question and any losses which are likely to be felt in the future, possibly due to the injury’s impact on your earning power. Alongside this will be an amount awarded on the basis of the exact nature of any injuries received.
If you feel you may be in a position to claim compensation, but are hesitant to do so because of fears over how much legal action may cost, then rest assured that we work on a No Win No Fee basis, which means that we charge nothing up front and, should you be so unlucky as to lose your case, all the expenses of the other side will be covered. On the other hand, if you win your case you’ll be entitled to keep all of the compensation awarded – lawyer fees are paid by the other side.
