Key criteria

Claims should be made within three years in the majority of cases.

Whether claiming for a work-related illness or road accident, making a successful claim will involve three issues. It needs to be shown that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

Slips, trips and falls

Officially recorded statistics reveal that slips and trips are the most frequent cause of accidents leading to injury at work in 2014/15. Slips and trips are typically the initiators of accidents attributed to other reasons for instance being hit by a reversing vehicle or a harmful substance accident. Public place legal claims for injuries such as sprained wrists experienced on poorly maintained paths are also common with pavement trips having happened recently.

Clinical negligence in Tullibody

When a patient sustains an injury or illness due to the carelessness of a GP or other medical professional, it may be possible to make a clinical negligence claim. If you have been the victim of clinical negligence, we can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic.

Alternatively, you can raise a formal complaint if you are only looking for a formal account of what went wrong instead of a compensation award. For example, you can write to Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Stirling Road, Larbert, Falkirk, to raise a complaint against NHS Forth Valley.
