Complex personal injury claim advice

choosing the correct solicitor

A complex personal injury claim means you need advice from a specialist, expert personal injury solicitor, and it’s important to know that not all firms are the same.

As a firm, we actually specialise in serious and complex personal injury claims, with a high proportion of such claims in our caseload. In fact, we have a whole team of experienced lawyers and legal minds who are solely dedicated to nothing but the difficult cases and the high value claims.

There’s a lot that can differentiate law firms from each other, and the quality of your lawyer could mean the difference between securing a fantastic and fair compensation package as opposed to nothing, or an under settlement.

Warnings over ‘toxic’ slime borax ingredient

child abuse claims

Warnings have been issued over a ‘toxic’ slime borax ingredient that children may be being exposed to unsafe levels of.

The popular children’s slime toys have been tested by consumer group Which? and the results are worrying.

They tested 11 of the most popular children’s slime toys and found that eight of them contained levels of boron – a chemical in borax – that were above recommended safety levels. It’s understood that the ingredients lists may simply say ‘contact lens solution’ which contains borax, the levels of which are not actually listed.

Drone accidents and liability – where do we stand?

drone accident claims

In the same way there are a lot of unanswered questions over the liability and indemnity for autonomous vehicles, the same questions are also plaguing the growing use of drones.

You can buy outdoor drones and use them with barely any restrictions, but let’s face it; they can be dangerous and are known to come down unexpectedly or end up out of control.

With companies like Amazon wanting to use them for delivering parcels, we can safely say that the insurance and liability ought to rest with them; but what about the drones being used for personal use causing someone some serious damages?

Supreme Court blames local authority for child abuse inflicted by foster parents

child abuse claims

Last October, the U.K.’s top judicial body, the Supreme Court, held a local authority vicariously liable for the abuse suffered by a foster child.

How do we calculate what a broken arm injury claim is worth?

Personal injury compensation is awarded to someone who has been involved in an accident that was not their fault. Those that have been injured due to someone else’s negligence can generally recover two things: general damages, and special damages.

General damages are to compensate for any pain, suffering, or loss amenity due to the injury. Special damages covers expenses and future losses that a person will incur directly because of the incident. This can include travel expenses, clothing, loss of earnings etc…

This financial settlement is meant to help those who have suffered an injury to get their life back on track, or as near as, before the injury happened. So how do we calculate a claim for a broken arm, for example?
