Enquiring about claiming for compensation

4 questions have been answered below, why not ask your own?

If you have been injured in an accident which you believe was no fault of your own, there is no harm in enquiring about whether or not you would be entitled to compensation for the injuries that you have sustained.

Many people are hurt in accidents that are not their fault every year and many do not realise that they may be entitled to compensation for their injuries. It only takes a call to a solicitor who specialises in accidental personal injury claims to find out whether or not you have a strong case for compensation.

Although the solicitor will not be able to tell you how much compensation you will receive, they will certainly give you a good idea about whether or not it would be in your best interests to pursue those responsible for your injuries for compensation.

By having a solicitor on side, you can be sure that you are going to get the best possible representation should your case for compensation go to court. They know exactly how the system works and what you will be required to do prior to a settlement being reached between the two parties.

    Hi Iam enquiring about a accident caused by a member of staff in a super market…the security guard was trying to catch a shoplifter but went the wrong way about it and it ended up him injuring me. I’ve made an appointment to see my GP just to get checked over as they really hurt me and frighten me as I didn’t know what was happening!! Do I proceed to make a claim against them?

      You certainly can proceed with a claim for compensation. Of course, there is no guarantee that it will succeed as it could be seen that the security guard was not acting negligently. However, whilst we can’t guarantee success, we can guarantee that it would cost you nothing if your claim were to not succeed.
      Our No Win No Fee personal injury service enables you to pursue your legal rights without risking your own financial situation.

      We would recommend that you make sure that your injuries are reported to the supermarket and that you outline any issues that you believe are relevant with regards to any mistakes made on the security guards part. If you haven’t already filled in an accident book entry, you can return to the store to do so or email them.

    Hello I’m enquiring about my son and how much he’s entitled to. There was a car crash it was not our fault and my son was in the passenger seat and a woman went into the back of us and my son bang his head then later that day started vomiting and got migraines so we took into hospital and he was diagnosed with a minor head injury. Due to this he took two days off school. And I’m just wanting an estimate please?

      Thanks for your comment. I am sorry to hear about your Son’s injuries as a result of the car accident. You are right, as a passenger, he is not at fault in anyway and is therefore entitled to pursue a claim for compensation for the injuries he has sustained.

      Unfortunately, there is no way I can answer your question about the possible value at this stage – at least not accurately – and I would not wish to give a wildly misleading estimate to you. The value of your Son’s compensation will depend on many things, particularly the extent of his injuries, the length of time that symptoms are present and whether or not he has any ongoing discomfort from physical symptoms – such as whiplash, concussion and any associated psychological trauma – relating to vehicle travel in the future for example. Also, the value of the claim could also be affected by issues such as whether he was wearing a seat belt etc.

      What I can say is that there is definitely a claim to be made here and your Son’s injuries definitely pass the minimum value required and your Son would expect to receive at least £1,500 as a starting point – potentially much more. However, without having viewed a medical report and knowing more about the accident, we simply cannot give you a specific answer or even a decent estimate of the possible value of his claim.

      We would gladly get this claim to one of our specialist Road Traffic Accident Solicitors and let them pursue this matter for your son.
