Personal Injury Law
Personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body, mind or emotions, as opposed to an injury to property.
The most common types of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, slip and fall accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, product defect accidents (product liability) and holiday accidents. The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which lead to numerous medical negligence claims) and conditions that are often classified as industrial disease cases, including asbestosis and peritoneal mesothelioma, chest diseases (e.g., emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic obstructive airways disease), vibration white finger, occupational deafness, occupational stress, contact dermatitis, and repetitive strain injury cases.
Depending upon the intent or negligence of a responsible party, the injured party may be entitled to monetary compensation from that party through a settlement or a judgment.
What we do:
Listen carefully, ask for back-up documentation from you and tell you whether it is a claimable injury and what chances we think you may have in succeeding in a claim. If you don’t like what we tell you, we suggest you to seek a second opinion, keeping in mind that not always the promise of a bigger claim is the more successful.
