Do I have a claim?

Qualifying for personal injury compensation

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.

Whether claiming for a road accident or work-related illness, there are three components to proving a claim. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.

A free phone consultation with an expert solicitor can give information and useful advice.

How much can I claim?

The amount of compensation you will receive will depend on a number of points. Our online compensation calculator provides a good idea of the compensation you could win.

Other claims we handle

Slips and trips

Health and Saftey Executive statistics expose the fact that employee slips and trips are, by a considerable degree, the most frequent accident at work in East Riding Of Yorkshire in 2014/15. Slips, trips and falls are sometimes the precursor to injuries recorded in another category for instance being hit by a moving object, being trapped by something collapsing or a harmful substance accident. Public liability compensation claims for injuries like broken collarbones experienced on spillages are also quite common with incidents having occurred on Main St and on Bude Rd.

Clinical and medical negligence in Beverley

Medical negligence describes when a patient is injured or becomes ill as the result of the lack of care of a GP or other health worker. If you have been affected by clinical negligence, we can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic responsible.

If you are just looking for a deeper understanding of what happened rather than injury compensation, you could make a formal complaint. To make a formal complaint against Humber NHS Foundation Trust, for example, you can write to Trust HQ, Willerby Hill, Beverley Road, Willerby, Hull, Yorkshire(East Riding).
