Our personal injury claims services in Cambridge
Our Cambridge team have helped thousands of people from Cambridge and further afield to claim compensation following avoidable or preventable accidents. Our areas of expertise include the following types of case:
Slips, trips and falls
This is one of the most common types of personal injury claim, and it can happen anywhere. Anything from obstacles that should have been moved, and uneven surfaces, to slippery floors can cause slips, trips and falls. At best, you’ll escape with a few bumps and bruises. However, in the worst cases, these accidents can cause broken bones, fractures and even damage to the spine or brain.
If you’ve had a slip, trip or fall at work or in a public place, call our Cambridge personal injury specialists on freephone 0808 175 8000 to start your claim.
Car and cycling accidents
Car accidents can lead to a range of painful injuries, from whiplash to broken bones. They can also be much more serious and in the worst cases, lead to fatalities. If you’ve been in an accident and it was at least in part caused by someone else’s careless or dangerous actions, our Cambridge solicitors are perfectly placed to help. Our personal injury team are experts in handling road traffic accident claims involving cars, pedestrians, larger vehicles and cyclists.
Sadly, cycling accidents are among the most common type of road traffic accident our personal injury solicitors in Cambridge handle on a regular basis. Not all drivers give cyclists enough room when passing, or they fail to check their mirrors before turning or carrying out a manoeuvre. This can result in accidents which inevitably harm cyclists more than motorists.
To claim compensation for injury, damage to property or emotional distress following a road traffic accident, please call our personal injury solicitors in Cambridge on freephone 0808 175 8000 or fill in our quick online contact form.
Accidents at work
When you’re at work, your employer has a responsibility to provide you with a safe environment. You should receive the right support, information and training, as well as equipment, to do your job properly and safely. Your employer should also carry out and regularly review a health and safety risk assessment to identify and take steps to eliminate risks and hazards.
If your employer doesn’t take these responsibilities seriously enough, someone could get hurt. Our Cambridge personal injury team regularly hears from clients who’ve experienced the following at work:
- Exposure to asbestos and other toxic substances
- Trips and falls due to obstacles or unsafe surfaces
- Falls from height due to improper safety measures and equipment
- Accidents involving equipment - either due to lack of training and supervision, or faulty equipment
- Lifting and manual handling injuries

The process of claiming compensation can sometimes be simpler than you think, especially if your holiday or trip was booked through a UK-based holiday company or tour operator.
