Pages On: Personal Injury

Personal injury claims are usually made against an organisation or individual who has failed in their duty of care to you. Duty of care is the responsibility to maintain the health and safety of people interacting with you or a business. This can be in a store (occupiers liability) or in your place of work (employer’s liability), a medical professional (medical negligence), or even another road user (road traffic accidents). Regardless of how the personal injury came about, if the accident wasn’t your fault, or you were a victim of negligence, you are likely entitled to compensation.

I was treated exceptional by all who I have spoken to and have been talked through everything so I understand what is going to happen. This is my first time in contacting a injury expert and I would definitely recommend them in the future.

I received a very prompt phone call, after I had made an initial enquiry, from a young woman called Emily. She was both professional & personable, her questions were clear and concise, and she was/is an excellent advertisement for the compensation company she works for.

I can’t rate this company highly enough. I was very sceptical at first as I had not had any dealings with this sort of thing but believe you me, they were very good to me right from the start. There is no pushing you to do anything you don’t want to do, they are always simply sympathetic with your plight. I didn’t think I’d stood a chance but they came through for me for which I am very grateful. Believe you me they are first class.

I was undecided whether I wanted to make a claim because of the hassle involved, which I could well do without, mainly because of the ongoing problems after my injury. After contacting, it became clear that it is a very professional company & the inquiry was dealt with promptly & professionally with a pleasant manner. I got a decision on whether I had a claim very quickly without too much hassle.
