Claims For You are expert solicitors who specialise in trip or slip accident compensation.
If you have been injured in a tripping or slipping accident, you may have a claim for compensation against the party responsible for the accident. The compensation should cover the injuries you receive and any expenses or losses that you incur as a result of the accident.
The most common types of these accidents are slips on spillages in public buildings (such as shops, supermarkets, restaurants) and trips over badly maintained footpaths.
If you slip on liquid or objects on the floor whilst in a commercial premises (such as a supermarket, restaurant, shopping centre), then there may be a claim against the owner or occupier of the premises. They are responsible for taking reasonable steps to ensure your reasonable safety while you are on their premises. This usually involves them inspecting and cleaning the premises on a regular basis.
If you have an accident on a badly maintained footpath (such as a dangerous pothole or uneven paving stone) you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
The Local Authority is under a duty to regularly inspect the pavements and footpaths in your area. If the defect has been present and the Local Authority knew, or should have known, about it through their system of regular and reasonable inspections, and no action has been taken to remedy the problem or warn pedestrians about it, then you should be able to claim against their insurers.
Other accidents may occur on the highway and you may be able to claim if the Local Authority has failed to maintain or repair the roads, or failed to safeguard manholes or failed to guard or fence roadworks.
When you contact us in order to make a personal injury claim we will initially endeavour to fully understand the circumstances of your accident and injury. We may call on medical experts to assess your injury. We will then go through your personal injury claim with you, let you know how much you can claim and whether we think you will be successful. Our personal injury solicitors are specialists in all types of personal injury claims, including slip and trip accidents.
Since our firm was established 11 years ago, we prided ourselves on our clients receiving 100% of their compensation. As solicitors, we claim our legal fees from our opponents on top of any compensation and therefore, we gave you the guarantee that our clients receive 100% compensation.
However, following Government changes which came into force on the 1 April 2013, we are now not able to recover all of our legal fees from our opponent and therefore only on successful cases, we do make a small charge from our client's compensation. This will be capped at 15% of the awarded compensation.
Therefore, if you are successful in your claim there will be a charge of up to 15% (although in many cases it may not be as much as this) of your compensation. If for whatever reason, you are unsuccessful we will make no charge for our work and therefore our agreement remains a no win, no fee agreement.
We think our small deduction is very competitive and keeping in the tradition of ensuring clients get the maximum, and as much of the compensation as possible.
With our 98% success rate and the fact that we get 28% more compensation for our clients than the industry average, Claims For You is a great choice when looking for personal injury solicitors.
