Accident injury claims

Anyone who suffers personal injury or loss of property in an accident caused by the negligence of another person or party may have a legal right to financial compensation from whoever was responsible.

In many cases the claim will be brought as a breach of Common Law duty - negligence, but liability may also arise under statute eg. Sale of Goods Act, Consumer Protection Act. In the case of injury to employees there are numerous statutes and regulations which, if breached, can create liability for compensation.

An accident injury can occur on the roads and footpaths, at work, in public places, at home, at school, during medical treatment and in many other situations but whatever the location, if the accident was caused wholly or partly by someone else, a right to compensation is likely to exist.

Your accident injury claim may include compensation under various headings such as pain and suffering, loss of past and future earnings, medical expenses, travelling expenses, loss of property. This is by no means an exhaustive list and areas of claim will vary considerably according to the circumstances of the claim.

Accident in Supermarket
Mrs H was shopping for a small fold out table in a Supermarket. She reached to take one when the stack collapsed falling onto her right foot. X-rays to her foot showed no fracture but she was still forced to use crutches for a few weeks afterwards.

Within 6 months of being instructed Cooks had obtained a settlement offer of £2,000.00 which Mrs H was delighted to accept. She said
"My Granddaughter found your website and recommended you to me. Thank you for all your efforts for my accident claim, I appreciate your kindness. I received my cheque today and will be taking my grandchildren away on holiday with the money you recovered for me"
