Claiming for a serious injury from a fall

roof falls

We all suffer from small trips and falls over the course of our lives. In some cases, the consequences of a serious injury from a fall can be devastating.

A fall can induce pain and/or reduced mobility in any number of body parts, and the effects do not stop at physical damage. They can often provoke long-term mental health struggles as a result of the harm a serious injury can cause to your quality of life. While such incidents may not be reversible, compensation claims can often help to mitigate the impact on a victim’s life, providing recompense for the daily difficulties they now have to face.

A serious injury from a fall can arise in all manner of situations and environments, even in those where the risk is not overt. It is important to equip everyone with information regarding the actions they can take in the aftermath of such an unfortunate event.

Making a claim if you are a passenger in a car crash

road traffic accident claims

If you are a passenger in a car crash, it is likely that you have an almost guaranteed claim for personal injury if you have suffered injury as a result.

I can say this because in most cases, as a passenger, there is nothing that you could have done to have contributed toward or prevented the accident. After all as a passenger you are probably not in control of any vehicles involved in a crash.

So if you are a passenger in a car crash then we can help you.

Advice for trip or fall claims caused by poorly repaired roads and paths

When a defect appears in the road or on the pathways, there is a duty for the council or local responsible authority or agency to make safe the area or make appropriate reparations. But sometimes, repair work doesn’t quite go as it should do, or is perhaps not done to a proper and safe standard.

So what happens if you trip or fall because an area that has been worked on has either been poorly or incorrectly repaired? Can you claim for personal injury compensation?

Make a No Win, No Fee claim against the Council with THE Injury Lawyers

Making a claim for personal injury compensation against a council, local authority, or highways agency isn’t easy when it comes to winning a case.

Potholes – they can be a real pain in the backside when we are forced to dodge them on the roads and pavements. Falling by stepping in one or tripping due to one, or driving over one in a vehicle or on a bike, can lead to some fairly serious injuries.

100% Compensation for Council Claims

Council claims can be risky – and thanks to government law changes that happened in April 2013, lawyers are not allowed to recover the same level of fees we used to be able to. The result is that other lawyers will now want to deduct up to 25% from your compensation to cover their Success Fee which is designed to help offset the cases we take on and cannot win.

But we can still offer you a 100% compensation agreement for a council claim. So read on for more info!

But unfortunately, we take on a lot of claims where people have been injured by covers collapsing, flipping, or injuries caused by covers simply not being there.

If you are the unfortunate victim of a manhole cover incident, what can you do about making a claim for personal injury compensation?

Have you ever tripped over a raised grate resulting in injury?

If you have tripped on a raised grate and injured yourself, you are entitled to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Compensation is based on your suffering and losses incurred as a result of injury. For example, if you are suffer a broken leg it is likely you would have to take time off from work resulting in you suffering a loss of earnings if you are not paid at all or in full for having time off work.

Pothole claims against a council – advice from The Injury lawyers

The colder seasons of the year normally result in an increase in people making a claim for personal injury compensation as result of a pothole injury. Generally speaking, potholes are more commonly formed in colder weather because water seeps in to cracks in the highway surface and expands when it freezes overnight, causing the ground to crack and break open.

So if you are the victim of a pothole accident, what are your rights for a pothole claim against the council?
