If you have been injured as a driver, passenger, cyclist, or pedestrian as a result of an accident on the road, you can make a claim for compensation against the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident.
Accidents at School
Accidents at school may involve pupils, teachers, support staff or other visitors in any type of educational facility, such as nurseries, schools, colleges and universities.
Accidents at Work
Workers can sustain injuries as a result of accidents or negligence in any type of workplace, including offices, shops, restaurants, outdoor sites, factories, warehouses, construction sites, and so on.
Accidents in a Public Place
When people have an accident in a public place, they often believe that they are responsible for their own safety and that no one else is to blame. However, the owners of public and private organisations such as supermarkets, amusement parks, restaurants, and leisure centres all have an obligation to provide a safe environment to their visitors or customers, and are ultimately responsible for accidents that may occur on their premises.
Most sports involve a level of risk associated with physical activity and the game involved. However, some accidents that happen whilst playing sport may be a result of faulty equipment, an unsafe environment or playing surface, insufficient training or supervision, or inappropriate behaviour of other players. In these cases, responsibility for your injury may lie with the organisers of an event, the owner of sporting grounds, equipment providers, or other sports club members or players.
Many people are often unsure if they can claim for an accident that occurred in a foreign country which may have different laws and regulations, and whether their losses are covered by their travel insurance. If you have had an accident abroad as a result of health and safety negligence, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries, as well as the cost of medical treatment, other incurred expenses, and loss of enjoyment.
Faulty or Defective Products
All products that go on sale in the UK are required by law to undergo rigorous testing, in order to ensure they are fit for purpose, and meet strict safety, hygiene and quality standards. However, some products may have manufacturing defects or design faults which are missed at the testing stage, and can end up causing injuries or health hazards to the consumers that purchase and use them.
Serious Injuries and fatalities
Serious injuries, such as brain damage, paralysis or amputation can be caused by any type of accident, and can affect people in many different ways. For the person suffering, a serious injury can affect their whole life in ways such as learning to cope with a disability, extensive or ongoing medical treatment, loss of earnings, home modifications, and dependence on carers.
Medical negligence is where the standard of medical care given to a patient falls below the level expected in that field. All healthcare professionals have a duty of care to their patients, including all types of doctors, nurses, surgeons, dentists, and care home workers. Medical negligence covers a vast range of different cases, which can occur in a variety of ways and can cause both minor and major injuries and medical problems.
