Call us on 0121 565 4317 or apply online to find out whether we can help you to make a no win no fee accident claim to get you the compensation you need.


What Kinds Of Accidents Can I Claim For?

Accidents happen in all areas of life and many of them can lead to injuries. Not all accidents can lead to a personal injury claim, but many can. The most important feature of accidents that can lead to a claim for compensation is that there must have been someone at fault.


Common accidents that often lead to personal injury claims include:


Accidents At Work Claims
All workplaces contain hazards. It is the responsibility of your employer to minimize the chances of you having an accident at work and to minimize the severity of those accidents that cannot be avoided. When making an accident claim for an accident at work, it is important to note that your employer is often not the same person as your boss. Making a claim does not mean that you are blaming your line manager or work colleagues. It is a claim against the owner of the company for not fostering a safe environment at work. If you have suffered an accident at work, you may be eligible for compensation. Examples of accidents at work that might lead to a personal injury claim might be:


  • Falls from a height

  • Electrocution

  • Lifting injuries, usually affecting the back

  • Forklift injuries

  • Injuries on a construction site

  • Tinnitus or work-related deafness

  • Asbestos

  • Black lung

  • Contact with toxic or noxious substances

  • Vibration-related injuries


Road Traffic Accidents Claims
Accidents on the road are very common and can lead to some very serious injuries. In many cases, these accidents lead to injuries that are eligible for personal injury compensation claims. It is not just drivers who can claim compensation following a road traffic accident. Examples of road traffic accidents that are likely to lead to compensation claims for personal injury might be:


  • Motorcycle accidents

  • Injuries sustained as a pedestrian

  • Accidents involving cyclists

  • Accidents involving buses

  • Injuries sustained as the passenger in a taxi

  • Accidents between cyclists and pedestrians

  • Injuries sustained as a passenger in a car

  • Accidents involving commercial vehicles such as vans


Accidents In Supermarkets
Any shop or other space where the general public have access is required to make sure that the environment is safe for everyone. This means that there should not be any slip or trip hazards or that any hazards that cannot be removed must be clearly marked and highlighted. All surfaces that members of the public may be in contact with must be kept safe. If the company has not done this and you trip, fall or suffer another form of preventable accident leading to injury, you may be able to pursue a claim for compensation.


There are a wide variety of other accidents that can lead to personal injury claims. If you are unsure whether your accident and injury are eligible for compensation claim. Please call us on 0121 565 4317 or apply online and we will discuss your case to find out.


Are There Any Kinds Of Accidents I Can’t Claim For?

Following your accident, the thought of making a personal injury claim can be intimidating. We are here to help you understand the process and the requirements of the legal system. In order to make a compensation claim for your personal injury following an accident, several things need to be true.


  • There must be someone who is to blame for your accident. You can only make a claim for personal injury if someone had a responsibility to prevent or mitigate the situation you found yourself in (make the injury less severe) and failed to do so. Your employer, for example, is responsible for your safety whilst you are at work and when you are carrying out tasks related to your job. If you are not provided with the appropriate training, equipment and working environment to carry out your job safely, your employer could be liable (legally responsible) for any accident you suffer.


  • You must usually know who you consider to be to blame. There are a few circumstances where you may be able to make a claim against an unknown person, for example following a ‘hit and run’ car accident where you cannot identify the driver. In most normal circumstances, however, you will need to know who you are claiming against before we can begin your claim.


  • You must have sustained an injury and/or loss as a result of your injury. The injury you sustain as a result of your accident need not be entirely physical in nature, as it is also possible to claim for psychological difficulties that have occurred as a result of your accident. Your claim amount is not limited to the immediate physical or psychological injuries you have sustained, but you cannot claim for near misses or accidents that did not lead to any actual consequences.


For most of these accidents it is also possible to work with us on a no win no fee basis. This means that you do not have to pay any costs up front and, if you do not receive compensation, you will not need to pay anything at all. There are a few accidents that would not be eligible for a no win no fee arrangement, such as medical negligence claims, but we would discuss these with you when you call us on 0121 565 4317.


Accident Claims Amounts and Payouts?

Compensation is a mechanism in law that is designed to help you to get yourself back to the state you would have been in had the accident not happened. It is not there to punish the other party but rather to make sure that you do not lose out as a result of what has happened to you. The amount you can expect to receive as a result of your accident and injury depends on a variety of factors. These include the severity of the injury, the impact it will have on your life in both the short and long term, any costs you may have incurred as a result including administrative and therapeutic cost and any impact it may have on your potential future earnings. There are national guidelines as to how much compensation you can expect from any particular injury, which give the broad range of amounts that are normally paid out. The ranges are very broad to allow for the variety of individual circumstances. The best way to discover how much compensation you may be entitled to is to call us on 0121 565 4317 or apply online. We will briefly discuss the details of your accident to make sure that we can give you the best possible advice as to how to go forward with your claim.

How Are Accident Claims Started And What Is The Process?

In order to begin your compensation claim following your accident, the best first step would be to call us on 0121 565 4317 or apply online. Calling our team of experienced personal injury solicitors allows you to receive our expert advice and guidance through the process of making a claim. In most cases, we are able to offer our services on a no win no fee basis, allowing you to pursue justice for your injury as a result of an accident that wasn’t your fault without financial risk.


When we take on your case, we will write to the person who was responsible for your accident, asking them whether they accept responsibility (this is known as liability in legal terms). If they do not, we will then gather information and evidence to support the belief that they were responsible and that they failed to take adequate care (this is called being negligent). The evidence required will differ depending on the type of accident you have experienced. Once we have established that the other party is liable for your accident, we will then enter negotiations on your behalf to decide how much compensation you are entitled to. This will often take some time, as the other party may try to offer much less than you are entitled to. This is known as making a ‘low ball’ offer. Our expert team are highly experienced at this type of negotiation and help to guide you, explaining when an offer seems reasonable and when we would recommend that you do not accept. In the end, accepting an offer of compensation is always your decision and we will support you throughout.
