Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims should be made within a 3-year window in most cases.
In most cases, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Making your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your solicitor.

Will you need to choose a local Mansfield lawyer ?
Going for a local lawyers office is less important as cases are managed without the need to meet the solicitor.
However, you should select a firm that offers national medical centres (possibly even home visits) as you will almost always need to go to a medical exam.

Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Experience can also have an impact on the amount of compensation your solicitor will be able to negotiate. Get more information about how much you can claim.

Our specialist panel of solicitors covering Nottinghamshire and Mansfield have handled clinical negligence claims made against health services including Mansfield Community Hospital, Stockwell Gate, Mansfield, NG18 5QJ.
Slip, trip and fall accidents
HSE data reveal that employee slips, trips and falls are by some margin the most common cause of injury in the Nottinghamshire workplace. Slips and trips are sometimes related to accidents attributed to other reasons for instance being hit by another person, a crush injury from something overturning or an electrical discharge accident. Public place (Mansfield local authority) litigation for injuries such as broken arms happening on pavement cracks are also quite prevalent with street falls having happened on Southwell Rd West and on Carter Lane.
We understand the vital difference a compensation claim can make to seriously injured Claimants. Damages will lessen the financial burden on an injured person and their family so they can focus on recovery and rehabilitation.
