When accidents on the road occur, you could experience an assortment of injuries, ranging from minor to major.

The act of medical negligence is when a healthcare practitioner (such as a doctor or nurse) causes injury or harm that could have been avoided. Although there are measures set in place to ensure patient safety, if a professional deviates from these standards in care, they could cause serious injury that could’ve been avoided. In drastic cases of medical negligence, the individual could be left with life-altering implications, affecting their ability to earn a living or look after themselves. If that is the case, you could be eligible for compensation.

Your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure workplace safety has been achieved and hazardous causes have been adverted. To do so, there are procedures they could perform such as risk assessments, regular housekeeping and routine inspections. However, if your employer fails to uphold their obligation to ensure workplace safety has been achieved, you could experience an injury or suffering that could have been prevented. If this occurs, then you could have grounds to pursue a claim for compensation.
In the event you endure negligence within the workplace, Citizen’s Advice have outlined several steps that you could consider. These include:
- Take Pictures
- Take Video Footage
- Report The Incident To Your Employer
- Collect Witness Details
An injury is never a joyous encounter as your physical health, psychological well-being, and personal finances could be directly affected. However, when you experience an injury abroad that was caused by a negligent third-party, the trauma can be heightened and all the more stressful. If a mishap on holiday occurs, you could have grounds to pursue a claim for an accident on holiday and receive an awarded settlement for the injuries you have suffered.
If you have booked a package holiday and have experienced third-party negligence abroad, you could make a claim against the company back in the UK. However, you could only make a claim if experienced negligence when using the facilities booked through the packaged holiday. You could not make a package holiday claim if you experienced negligence outside the parameters provided within the package. The claim would therefore have to be conducted under the legislation of the country in which the accident occurred.
So for example, if you were to trip over a crack in the pavement whilst walking around the city centre, you could not claim against the tour operator, as this negligent incident occurred outside the confines of your package holiday. However, you could make a claim if the hotel within your package holiday neglects their duty of care, causing an injury or suffering that could have been avoided.
Claims for compensation that our panel of solicitors could handle may include:
- Airline Accidents
- Hotel Accidents
- Airport Accidents
- Package Holiday Accidents
If you wish to claim for an accident on holiday but you are unclear whether you have a valid claim, please feel free to contact our team.
If you have been the victim of a violent crime, you could be left with life-altering repercussions to your physical and psychological health. In drastic cases of violent crime, the affected victim may require therapy, rehabilitation, or surgical procedures to resolve the injuries they have experienced. Although an awarded settlement cannot erase this unfortunate experience, it could provide financial aid during the recovery process.
All claims for criminal injury compensation will be achieved through the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA), which is a government body that handles compensation claims for those affected by violent crime. In order to make a successful claim for compensation, there are several steps and factors that need to be considered. Firstly, in order to make a successful claim you must have reported the crime to the police. Secondly, you must begin your claim within the personal injury claims time limit. In most cases, the time limit is 2 years and activates from the moment you become a victim of a violent crime. Alternatively, the time limit comes into action once injuries relating a violent crime, such as PTSD or sleep deprivation, have been officially diagnosed.
In most cases for criminal compensation, they can take up to 12 months to resolve. However, cases of a complex nature may require a longer time limit before a settlement can be awarded. Therefore, we would recommend that you speak with one of our advisors, as they can discuss the eligibility of your claim in greater length.
In addition to the claims that have been outlined above, our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Walton-on-Thames could assist those who have been affected by a slip, trip or fall.

According to the Health and Safety Executive, a slip or fall accident is one of the most common, and in most scenarios, accidents of this nature are caused by one of three factors. These include:
- Design & Maintenance
Depending on the location in question, a slip or fall claim for compensation could be presented to a variety of parties. From private landowners and employers to the city council, depending on the responsibility of the area in question, the liability and duty of care will inherently differ. However, if you can supply evidence that indicates a clear breach that contributes to a slip or fall-related injury, then you could be eligible to make a claim.
