Our personal injury expertise
We’re proud to have some of the most experienced personal injury solicitors Birmingham has to offer. Our team can help with:
Accidents at work
When you’re at work, you have an expectation that your employer will take all reasonable measures to eliminate risk and ensure your safety. If your employer fails in this responsibility and you’re injured as a result, you could claim for accident at work compensation.
Our Birmingham personal injury specialists regularly handle cases involving:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Equipment-related injuries - caused by inadequate training or faulty machinery
- Manual handling injuries
- Falls from height
- Exposure to dangerous or toxic substances
These are just a small number of examples of accidents at work that could have been prevented with the right training, equipment, workplace setup or a proper health and safety risk assessment.
If you’ve been injured at work, our personal injury solicitors in Birmingham can offer advice on whether or not you have a claim for compensation. Please call freephone 0808 175 8000 to give us the details of what happened and to find out what to do next.
Asbestos-related illness is caused by exposure to dangerous asbestos dust or fibres, often while at work in an industrial or construction environment. People who’ve been exposed to asbestos can go on to develop a number of asbestos-related illnesses, such as pleural thickening, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer or mesothelioma.
There are strict regulations and guidelines that have been in place for many years about working with asbestos and how to keep employees safe. If your employer failed to take measures to protect you from the dangers of asbestos, and you’ve been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, you could claim for compensation.
Road traffic accidents and cycling accidents
Unfortunately, road traffic accidents are quite common. They’re often caused by a motorist’s mistake, error in judgement, carelessness or even recklessness. If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident and you believe someone else’s negligence was at least partially to blame, you could claim compensation for what happened.
Our personal injury solicitors in Birmingham can help everyone from drivers and passengers to cyclists, pedestrians and other road users to start a claim.
Sometimes accidents happen, and no one could have prevented what happened. In other cases, negligence or mistakes are to blame. If you’ve had an accident on holiday and it could have been prevented by a health and safety measures being put in place, you could be entitled to claim compensation.
Common holiday accident claims tend to involve the following:
- Slips, trips and falls in hotel resorts
- Accidents around the pool
- Cruise accidents and illnesses
- Injuries taking place on excursions
As a holidaymaker, you have an expectation that your travel company, tour operator, hotel, airline or tour guide will take all required measures to keep you safe. If they neglect this important duty, you could not only be injured while in unfamiliar surroundings, but you could also have your holiday spoilt, which would be a waste of hard-earned money spent saving up for a relaxing break.
Our Birmingham personal injury solicitors have extensive experience in holiday accident claims. We can help no matter where in the world the incident took place, and no matter how complicated the situation may appear. Trust us to handle the claim on your behalf - simply call freephone 0808 175 8000 to find out more.
Faulty product claims
Manufacturers and retailers have a legal responsibility to sell products that are safe and fit for purpose. Unfortunately, faulty product claims are common. This is when a product causes illness or injury due to poor design, failure to display sufficient warnings on packaging, contamination during manufacturing or another reason. If the manufacturer doesn’t warn you or recall the product immediately as soon as a fault is detected, you or your family could face injury.
If this has happened to you, please call or contact us online to start a personal injury claim with our Birmingham specialists.
Accidents in public places
One of the trickiest aspects of starting a personal injury claim can often be determining who to claim against. This is the problem that many of our Birmingham clients have with accidents in public places. If you trip over a poorly maintained pavement or have an accident due to broken lighting in a public place, our experienced personal injury solicitors can find out who was responsible and help you to start a claim. In many cases, it’ll be the local authority, who have a responsibility to take reasonable measures to maintain property to prevent accidents.
If you’ve had an accident in a public place, we’re happy to answer your questions and provide expert advice on what to do next. Please call our personal injury solicitors in Birmingham on freephone 0808 175 8000.
