NEWS, UPDATES AND FURTHER INFORMATION - ACCIDENT & COMPENSATION LAW & LAWYERS

Some of the most common types of accidents and injuries include:

* Slip Trip and Fall Accidents. Slip trip and fall accidents are one of the most common types of accidents people have. Most of these can occur in shopping centres, supermarkets and grocery stores. A simple slip can cause very serious injuries such as back injuries, paralysis, broken bones and head injuries. Many slips and trips happen in the working environment due to poor health and safety regulations.Slips are very common in public places where they may have walked on wet surfaces, oil or other slippery material on the floor. In the working environment someone may half spilt some liquid and not cleaned it up properly, a simple error like this could end up in someone else slipping and causing serious harm to themselves.

* Agricultural Accidents. Whether you have been injured due to your employer's actions, those of a work colleague or due to dangerous machinery, we can help.

* Industrial Disease. Industrial diseases may not appear immediately and the symptoms may develop later on. However, in the working environment people can be affected and can sometimes be classed as industrial disease.

* Accidents in a Public Place. The safety of all the public and visitors to privately owned land or property is the responsibly of those individuals. Insurance is in place for the most part to ensure that any injured parties are able to make a personal injury compensation claim in the event of an injury.

* Accidents in shops and restaurants. Shop premises at all times need to be free from any slipping hazards. This is the responsibility of the owner; managers. A wet floor due to spillage or unfinished cleaning must be properly signed and erected to alert members of the public to the hazard. If you have suffered an accident due in your local supermarket or shopping centre then you may be entitle to make a personal injury compensation claim.

* Faulty goods and product liability. These cases arise out of situations where products are defective and cause injury as a result of the defect. Have you been injured as a result of purchasing a standard consumer product which is defective? You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim from the manufacturer/supplier as well as individuals/companies through whom the goods may have passed.

* Solicitors' Professional negligence. If you have had a claim before and you believe that your solicitors did not act in your best interest, you may have a claim. Perhaps your claim did not succeed because your solicitor failed to do bring the claim within the required limitation period.

* Medical negligence. Did your doctor or nurse make you worse, did they put your recovery in reverse? You may have a claim if they did.

* Accidents within the home. It is possible to pursue a claim against a householder's insurance company. For example, you may have been injured by a piece of glass whilst visiting a friend, neighbour, or even a relative. In which case, you may have a claim.

* Animal Attacks. You may have a claim against the owner or keeper of an animal, if it attacks you.
