Pelvic injury claims for compensation

workplace accidents

A pelvic injury can present the injured person with significant pain, discomfort and mobility issues. In the worst cases, they can leave the victim with permanent difficulties, which is why it is important that victims can seek justice where they have come to harm through the fault of someone else. Those who have sustained an injury to their pelvis due to the negligence of another person or a company could be eligible to pursue pelvic injury claims for compensation.

As specialists in injury claims, we have represented thousands of clients who have been injured due to the avoidable negligence of another party. Injuries can be frustrating enough in themselves, so it can feel like an even greater injustice when they are caused through no fault of your own.

We want to empower as many victims as possible to seek the justice they deserve. Anyone who needs expert advice and representation about a potential compensation claim can contact our expert team for free, no-obligation advice on their case.

Leg injury compensation claims

ankle injury compensation claims

Leg injuries are the subject of some of the most serious injury claims that we deal with, as these injuries can often severely incapacitate the people they affect. Whether they involve a temporary broken bone, or a long-term mobility issue, they can be serious. Regardless of the severity of the condition, those who have sustained a leg injury through no fault of their own may be able to make a leg injury compensation claim.

Our specialist injury claims solicitors want to make sure that all our clients receive the best possible pay-out, which is why we evaluate all the potential avenues of compensation as part of bringing your claim. We know that compensation cannot make up for the harm caused to you, but it can be comforting to know that the costs of dealing with your condition have been covered, and to know that the negligence that caused your injury has been accounted for.

Read on to find out more about how we can pursue leg injury compensation claims.

Serious neck injuries – advice from The Injury Lawyers

serious neck injuries

Anyone who has sustained serious neck injuries as a result of another party’s negligence may be eligible to claim compensation for the harm caused to them.

Neck injuries can vary significantly in the nature and severity of the effects, with some victims experiencing temporary movement issues, whereas others with serious trauma may struggle with long-term pain and mobility problems.

Compensation claims take account of the severity of the injury, meaning that those with serious neck injuries could receive a 5 or even 6-figure compensation pay-out (or higher). As specialist personal injury lawyers, we know how to make sure that you receive the compensation you deserve for the suffering you have endured. Read on to find out how we approach a neck injury claim.

Arm injury compensation claims

When it comes to arm injury compensation claims, there’s often a lot more to it than just the pay-out for the injury alone, which we will look at here in this blog.

There’s also the losses and expenses side of a case which can be substantial. If you can’t work for the rest of your life as a result of a serious arm injury, we need to take this into account. When it comes to talking about potential valuations, we can only really give rough advice for the injury side of the case alone. When it comes to the losses, that’s a very different thing to consider.

Here’s a little insight into how we can work out the valuation of an arm injury case and what you may be able to expect.

The Injury Lawyers win fight for manhole cover compensation claim against local council

We take on a lot of manhole cover claims. In fact, we take on so many that I daren’t even walk over manhole covers myself anymore. It’s not a superstitious thing at all – its come from seeing so many people step on them and end up injured when covers collapse inward or break!

In this case our client approached us for help when she stepped on a cover that collapsed resulting in one of her legs falling down in to the hole at around knee height. The council tried to defend the claim but we fought to overturn the decision and she was successfully awarded a payout.

Ms W awarded £5,650 for whiplash injuries in rear end shunt

Whiplash – ignore the rumours that the press love to spread, which is largely fuelled by the insurance industry who don’t want you to make a whiplash claim for a road traffic accident.

Why don’’t they want you to claim? Simple – it helps them to make even higher profits when people don’t pursue a whiplash claim when they are perfectly entitled to do so.

Insurance is there to cover you, which is why Ms W approached our expert road accident team here at The Injury Lawyers for help with her claim.

The consequences of Contributory Negligence

Have you suffered an accident resulting in injuries which would not have occurred “but for” the fault of someone else? If you have, you may have a claim; but what happens if you are partially at fault for the accident or have done something that has contributed to making your injuries worse?

Here is a little insight in to how it can affect your claim if someone else is at fault, but you are partially to blame in some way as well.

Injured Crossing A Road Near A Zebra Crossing

Crossing a road is part of everyday life. We are all well aware of the dangers – whether it be as a driver looking out for pedestrians or as a pedestrian trying to safely cross to the other side of the road. Zebra crossings are in place to assist pedestrians in crossing the road. On busy roads, it would be very difficult without some kind of crossing in place to get to the other side. It would be very dangerous without some kind of crossing. Of course there are duties upon both drivers and pedestrians when it comes to zebra crossings. Liability can often be split depending on the circumstances of the individual case.

Pedestrians should wait for cars to stop in both directions before stepping out into the road. Other factors to consider include the speed of the vehicle, whether the pedestrian had waited for it to be safe before stepping out into the road etc. Especially in this type of claim, witnesses could be crucial.

The Zebra, Pelican and Puffin Pedestrian Crossings Regulations 1997 prescribe an absolute duty for the driver to stop if anyone is on the crossing. Therefore even if the pedestrian ran out into the road it can be difficult for a driver to escape liability all together. Hence in some situations it leads to a split in liability whereby the driver and the passenger are both to blame to some extent.
