Whether you live in Rainford or anywhere in the country, our expert injury solicitors are able to assist with your claim and we will always set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Injury claims must be made in 3 years of an injury in the majority of cases.
To win a Rainford personal injury case, your lawyer must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
In all cases, a brief, no-obligation call with an expert Rainford lawyer can provide answers and advice.
What points to check when picking the right personal injury lawyer
Identifying the most appropriate law firm for your legal matter is a key step towards negotiating the highest settlement or award for your injuries.
How can you ensure you choose the most appropriate law firm to pursue compensation for you?
Do you need to instruct a local Rainford lawyer ?
Choosing a nearby solicitors office is not especially important as injury cases can be conducted without the need to meet the solicitor.
You will need to go with a company that provides a national network as you will almost always need to attend a medical examination.

Solicitors have a wide range of approaches to handling cases and clients, from strictly professional to sympathetic. Before picking up the phone, looking up injury lawyer reviews should give you a much better idea of the level of service on offer, and the factors that matter most to you.

The key questions to put to your prospective solicitor are "what success fee and ATE premium do you charge?" and "how much of the compensation will I keep?".

Slips and trips
Officially recorded figures underline the fact that employee slips, trips and falls are by far the most prevalent cause of injury at work in Merseyside and the UK. Slips and trips are frequently the initiators of accidents attributed to other causes for instance being hit by a falling object or a fire related accident. Public place claims for injuries like fractured wrists occurring on tripping on a street are also quite prevalent with recent incidents having happened on Wythburn Crescent and on Ormskirk Road.
