Personal injury lawyers

Personal injuries are described as any damage done to any person or property, reputation or rights, which took place at the work place, due to a defective product or its repair, due to an inappropriate medical treatment or during a road accident, either psychological or physical. These injuries generally occur due to the unsafe activities or negligence of other persons or company like trespassing, slandering, professional malpractice or nuisance. Personal injury lawyers are needed when the injured person wants a professional to defend him or her against the personal injury court case. These lawyers know how to convince the court in favour of the compensation claim of the injured person. Normal people are not usually aware of the legal procedure regarding the personal injury law, but a lawyer with adequate experience is familiar with almost all the legal aspects of the laws.

The injured people are legally eligible to claim for compensation from the party that is responsible for their injuries, and they will definitely need a lawyer who will help them in exercising their rights. They are equipped with a vast amount of experience and knowledge on personal injury laws, which will be really helpful in claiming the compensation. But a personal injury lawyer will not be able to do anything if the specified time for claiming has elapsed. Therefore, it is important for the injured persons to contact a lawyer soon after the accident has taken place.

Most of the personal injury lawyers offer free consultation services and give the injured persons an opportunity to tell them in detail about the circumstances of the case before the person hires them. The best thing is that most of these lawyers are hired on the basis of ‘contingency fee’, which means that if the person looses the case and do not get any compensation from the other party, then they will not be required to pay any fees to the lawyers. These lawyers also deal in disastrous injuries, thereby dealing with the insurance company. They are able to assess the amount of the claim and also explain the advantages and disadvantages of pursuing a legal case. Therefore, it is wise to check the credentials of the lawyer before hiring him or her. It is quite important to hire a lawyer who is specialised in cases of personal injuries, who is well-experienced in dealing with the insurance companies, who is professional about the fees, contract, catering to your queries and anxieties and who will keep the injured person updated and informed.

Food Poisoning
Mr W was involved in a food poisoning incident at a Dinner Dance. Cooks obtained an admission of liability swiftly from the hosts. Mr W’s symptoms did not settle, he required surgery and Cooks referred him to a Gastrointestinal Consultant to provide a final diagnosis. On receipt of this Mr W agreed an out of Court settlement of £20,000.00
"At first the Doctors didn’t know what was wrong with me, but Cooks never gave up and in the end I received a correct diagnosis, the appropriate treatment and a cheque for far more than I had expected."
