Did you receive a personal injury?

WHAT TYPES OF INJURIES ARE THERE?
There are a wide range of injuries caused by medical negligence including dental negligence, misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis, cosmetic surgery errors, and birthing injuries to highlight a few.

DOES IT MATTER IF IT IS NHS OR PRIVATE TREAMENT?
No, you can pursue a case for medical negligence if the treatment was through the NHS and or a private facility.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?
In short for most cases, after our initial consultation, we will obtain copies of your medical notes and records from the medical facility that carried out your treatment indicating that you are considering a medical negligence claim.  Once we receive all the necessary medical records we will require these to be commented on by an expert from outside of this jurisdiction.  We will then discuss with you the outcome of the expert’s medical evidence and the next stages of your case.

WHAT WILL THIS COST ME?
If you are in receipt of certain benefits such as income support, we will advise you at the initial consultation as to what assistance can be obtained through legal aid.  If you are not in receipt of benefits then the cost of the case may be covered through your home insurance or we can apply for ATE (After The Event) Insurance.

AM I ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION IF I AM INJURED AT WORK?
At our initial consultation we will discuss with you the merits of your case.  In general terms, your employer has a duty of care towards you as their employee.  Typical injuries caused whilst at work are falls from heights, slips, falls, manual handling and faulty equipment.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE IF I TRIP, FALL OR SLIP IN A PUBLIC PLACE?
If your accident happens for example on a public footpath the body responsible in most cases, who you can pursue a case against, is the local authority. If the accident happens in another public area such as a restaurant then the owner or occupier of the premises will be pursued.

WHAT SHOULD I DO WHEN I TRIP, FALL OR SLIP?
We would recommend that you take a photograph as soon as you can of the area that your accident occurred.  If you can you should also obtained details of any witnesses to the incident.

WHAT WILL THIS COST ME?
