Types of personal injury claims and our expertise
When starting a personal injury claim, you need a specialist in this particular area of the law. Our personal injury solicitors in Watford have a huge amount of experience in claims of all kinds, involving both minor and major injuries. Over the years, we’ve been proud to help our clients claim compensation that makes their lives and recovery easier - in everything from workplace injuries to accidents that occur on the roads.
We can help you claim compensation for:
Accidents at work
Workplace accidents can happen when the proper health and safety measures aren’t taken. It’s the responsibility of your employer to provide you with a safe environment in which to carry out your work. Your employer is also required to give you the right training, supervision, support and tools to do your job safely. If standards aren’t maintained, accidents can happen and people can get hurt.
Common workplace accidents that our personal injury solicitors regularly deal with include:
- Falls from height - for example when safety harnesses aren’t used or scaffolding equipment isn’t safe
- Manual handling injuries - caused by lifting and carrying without proper risk assessments and training being carried out
- Trips and falls - when hazards such as wet floors, loose tiles and other obstacles aren’t identified and removed, or signposted for safety
- Accidents involving machinery - this can happen when there is a fault, or when an employee isn’t properly trained or supervised to use the equipment safely
If you’ve had an accident at work and you believe negligence was at least partly responsible, please call us on freephone 0808 175 8000 to discuss what happened. Our personal injury solicitors in Watford can offer expert advice and help you to start a claim for compensation.
Accidents on the roads
It isn’t always obvious that a particular party is at fault when a road traffic accident occurs. In other cases, a mistake or deliberate act of dangerous driving causes the collision or other incident. Our personal injury solicitors in Watford regularly deal with road accident cases. We’ve represented all kinds of claimants, such as drivers of vehicles, passengers, pedestrians and cyclists.
To find out if you could claim and to get realistic, honest advice on how much compensation you could receive if you win your case, contact Slater and Gordon Lawyers. Our personal injury solicitors in Watford are on hand to answer all of your questions, take the details of what happened and start your claim.
Accidents in public places
All organisations, from companies to local councils, have a duty of care to the people who use their facilities. This means that if you suffer a slip, trip or fall, or another type of accident, because an organisation hasn’t met the relevant safety standards, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Whether you’ve experienced harm because of a pothole, an uneven pavement, a wet floor in a shop, faulty equipment in a gym or something else, our expert team are here to offer you advice and representation.
To discover if you could make a claim, don’t hesitate to contact our personal injury specialists.
