Scenarios in which a personal injury may occur
If you or someone in your family has suffered a personal injury or developed an illness through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim for pain and suffering, loss of earnings, medical expenses and other damages. Below are some examples of successful cases that The Claim Solicitors have dealt with:
Personal injury - in the workplace
After leaving her desk to make a cup of tea, a female administration assistant from Manchester tripped over a set of computer wires that had not been bound up and tucked away neatly.
She twisted her ankle, fractured her wrist and suffered a head injury. The work accident was recorded in the company log book and she pursued a claim with our help. Her employer was found liable for her injuries and she was awarded more than £7,000 in compensation. Read more.
Personal injury - motorcycle accident
While travelling down the M11 at 60mph a motorcyclist was knocked from her bike by a car. The motorcyclist slammed on her brakes to avoid the car but swerved and was thrown from the bike into a lay-by.
She suffered several personal injuries and was unable to return to work for almost six months.
She decided to pursue a personal injury claim and was awarded £32,000 for her injuries and a further £9,000 for loss of earnings. Read more.
Personal injury - product liability
A seven-year-old child was temporarily blinded after applying face paints at a friend's birthday party.
Dermatologists advised that it was unlikely that the boy was allergic to the face-paint but it could have contained irritants that triggered the reaction.
His mother acted as his 'litigation friend' and pursued the case on his behalf. Read more.
Personal injury - medical negligence
During a gall bladder operation at a Greater London hospital, an elderly woman had a sponge left inside her by surgeons. This caused a serious infection that resulted in substantial swelling, pain and discomfort.
She was advised that the surgeon and his team were legally responsible for this terrible occurrence and she sought compensation accordingly. Her compensation claim was successful and she was awarded £20,000 for the medical negligence and a further £10,000 for the psychological injury she suffered. Read more.
Personal injury - trip or slip in a public place
While doing her weekly shop in the local supermarket, a 23-year-old woman from Nottinghamshire slipped on a squashed nectarine. She fell awkwardly; spraining her ankle and breaking her right arm.
She made an injury claim and the supermarket admitted liability for the slipping accident. They offered her an out of court settlement which she accepted. Read more.
Personal injury - Dog bite
A 10-year-old boy was playing football at his local park when a dog knocked the boy off his feet, pushed him to the floor and bit him on the face.
This was not the first time that this dog had attacked and the boy's father had good grounds to claim for compensation on his son's behalf and so enlisted the help of The Claim Solicitors. Read more.
Personal injury - industrial illness
A 75-year-old former dock worker from Portsmouth, Hampshire realised he had contracted mesothelioma after being exposed to significant quantities of asbestos dust at his place of employment over 50 years ago.
He realised that there was a problem when he started suffering from shortness of breath and chest pain. His doctor diagnosed him with the fatal cancer.
The man pursued a claim against his former employers for the pain and suffering this terrible illness had caused both him and his family. The man sadly died before a settlement was made but his wife continued the claim on his behalf. Read more.
