When it comes to compensation claims one of the most important things to remember is that you don’t have to suffer in silence.

Rebuilding your life after an accident can be hard if you don’t have the financial basis to start from . Perhaps you have been left financially disadvantaged after your accident, or in many cases you may find that your medical bills are really starting to pile up. Have you received an injury that is so severe you have had to take an extended time off work? Or perhaps you are unable to return to work altogether? If you find yourself in this situation then you could be financially struggling.

When it comes to making a compensation claim then you need to be able to prove that someone has been negligent towards you, whether it’s a friend, employer, teacher or just another member of the public. If you can prove this then they are responsible and liable for any injuries and damages that you have incurred. In this situation you could be able to make a compensation claim. 

What is Negligence?

Negligence refers to any accident which has happened which could have been avoided if more care had been taken by a person. Some of the most common situations of negligence that we come across include:

  • Motor vehicle drivers – If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident due to the fault of another driver who is careless or under the influence of a substance (drugs, alcohol) then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim
  • Medical negligence – If you have been mis-treated by a doctor, nurse, GP or dentist you could be able to make a claim for medical negligence
  • Workplace negligence – If you have been injured in your workplace through the negligence of your employer you may be eligible for a claim. This could include a lack of workplace safety procedures or not providing the appropriate safety equipment to you. 

What should I do next?

If you believe that you have been mis-treated or neglected and you have suffered an injury as a result then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim. Manners Pimblett are the experts when it comes to personal injury claims and we can work with you to assess how much compensation you might be eligible for.
