Personal injury claims in London - our services

The term ‘personal injury’ covers a wide variety of different accidents, injuries and illnesses. Our specialists in London have considerable experience in cases involving:

Road traffic accidents

When a road traffic accident occurs, whether you’re a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist, and someone else is either fully or partly to blame, you may be entitled to compensation. Examples of road traffic accidents where someone else is to blame include:

  • Careless driving - for example, changing lanes without checking mirrors or pulling out of a junction without looking both ways
  • Dangerous driving - for example, driving recklessly in a way that’s likely to endanger other road users or pedestrians
  • Failure by a local authority or highways agency to properly maintain the road, leading to an accident - for example, a cyclist coming off their bike and sustaining injuries due to a large pothole in the road

If you’ve been injured in a road accident and another party was partially or completely at fault, you could claim compensation. Speak to one of our personal injury solicitors in London today about starting a claim following a road traffic accident. Call us on freephone 0808 175 8000 or contact us online.

Work accidents

Accidents at work are surprisingly common. Examples of workplace accidents include slips, trips and falls over wet floors, loose cabling or uneven surfaces, as well as manual handling injuries and falls from height. You may also sustain an injury if your employer doesn’t properly train you in the safe use of equipment, or if you’re not adequately supervised to carry out a new task. In other cases, injuries happen when equipment is not properly maintained.

In most of these situations, injuries could’ve been prevented if the employer had taken the correct health and safety precautions. You have the legal right to a safe working environment. If you’re put in danger and are hurt as a result, you could claim compensation.

Holiday accidents

If you’ve been injured abroad and you suspect negligence played a role in the accident, please call our personal injury solicitors in London on freephone 0808 175 8000 to find out about claiming compensation. Our team has experience with accidents on coach trips, excursions, around the pool or in a resort. We can also help in cases of accidents aboard a cruise ship or injuries sustained when working overseas.

Accidents in public places

All organisations and businesses have a duty of care to those who use their premises or facilities. If you suffer an accident because of the negligence of a company, local authority or another type of organisation, you may be able to claim compensation. For example, if you have an accident because of an uneven pavement, wet floor in a supermarket or faulty gym equipment, you might be able to take legal action.

Our London solicitors have vast experience in these types of claim and are ideally placed to support and advise you.

Faulty products

Understandably, we have an expectation that the products we buy will be safe to use. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. From sofas to cosmetics, sometimes products simply aren’t up to scratch and they cause harm to consumers. If you’ve suffered an injury because of defective goods, the team at Slater and Gordon can help. Contact us for guidance on what to do next.

Other types of claim

We can also help with:

  • Industrial diseases (for example, occupational cancers, asthma, dermatitis, vibration white finger)
  • Asbestos-related illnesses (for example, pleural thickening, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer, mesothelioma)
  • Sports injuries
  • Military accidents and injuries
  • Physical or sexual abuse
  • Serious injuries, including head, neck, brain and spinal injuries

If you’re not sure whether or not you can claim, please call us on freephone 0808 175 8000 and our personal injury specialists will be able to offer immediate assistance.
