What could I claim for?

Our expertise includes:
Accidents at work
Accidents in the workplace are more common than you may realise. Most employers take their responsibilities with regards to health and safety very seriously, but mistakes can still happen. Examples of the problems that can cause workplace accidents include:
- Failure to carry out or update a health and safety risk assessment
- Failure to implement proper health and safety or fire safety measures
- Wet floors not marked with safety signage
- Spillages inadequately dealt with
- Employees not being properly trained to carry out a particular task or to use certain machinery
- Faults with dangerous machinery
- Failure to properly supervise work or training
- Falls from height due to proper safety standards being neglected
- Trips and falls over loose flooring, uneven surfaces or obstacles such as wiring
- Injuries caused by manual handling tasks
This list only represents a handful of the accidents and injuries that can and do happen in the workplace. If you’ve been injured at work and want to find out if you could claim compensation, Slater and Gordon Lawyers can help.
Car and cycling accidents
Road traffic accidents are among the most common types of claim that our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool see. Negligence causes a number of avoidable accidents on the roads, from collisions between vehicles to cycling accidents and injuries caused to pedestrians.
If someone else’s careless or dangerous driving, failure to check mirrors or bad judgement caused a road traffic accident and you were injured as a result, we can help. Please call Slater and Gordon Liverpool on freephone 0808 175 8000 to tell us what happened.
We’ll take the details of your accident, including when and where it happened and the extent of your injuries, and offer our expert advice on what to do next. You can also arrange a consultation with our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool using our online contact form.
Trips and falls in public places
Public places, from buildings and events venues to pavements and public squares, need to be safe for people to use. The organisations responsible for health and safety in public places must take reasonable measures to remove hazards, such as uneven surfaces, potholes and loose paving. If they don’t, someone could get hurt.
If you’ve been injured following a trip or fall in a public place, our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool can help.
Please call us on freephone 0808 175 8000 to tell us what happened. We’ll offer expert advice on whether or not you have a valid claim, as well as what to do next.
Other types of claim
In addition to the types of claim listed above, we offer legal representation in many other cases, including asbestos-related diseases, accidents abroad, military accidents, abuse claims and sports injuries.
What could compensation mean for you?
Compensation can be life-changing for people affected by accidents, whether at work, out on the roads or elsewhere. When you’re injured unexpectedly by an incident, you could find yourself unable to work - which could leave you out of pocket. Personal injury compensation can ease the financial strain of loss of earnings. It can also help to pay for necessary expenses related to your injury, such as adjustments to your home, care staff, medical bills and travel costs. All of these costs can add up, and compensation can help to make life just a little easier.
Our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool have successfully secured compensation for clients throughout the city and beyond. We’re proud to fight your corner to secure compensation that could make a big difference to your life.
Does it cost anything to start a claim?
Our personal injury solicitors in the north-west and across the UK handle the majority of personal injury claims on a No Win, No Fee basis. This –means unless you win your case, you won’t have to pay any legal fees. This arrangement, which is also known as a Conditional Fee Agreement, takes the risk out of starting a claim.
Please call our personal injury solicitors in Liverpool on freephone 0808 175 8000 to check that your claim qualifies for No Win, No Fee. All it takes is a call to get your claim started. You can also contact Slater and Gordon Lawyers online and we’ll arrange to get back to you at a convenient time.
