If you have been made injured/ill or you had a pre existing condition that has been made worse by medical negligence, you could have a claim for compensation and our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Worthing could assist you. There are many ways in which you could suffer medical negligence, and a compensation claim could help recoup costs such as lost earnings and medical expenses as well as compensating you for the suffering/pain you’ve been through.

A solicitor working on a medical negligence case would need to prove that the health care professional had a duty of care to you, that they were negligent in that duty, and that caused you avoidable harm.
The personal injury claims time limit for most medical negligence cases is three years, but this is not always the case. Some medical negligence incidents may not be discovered until later on, so the time limitation period may begin from the date the clinical negligence was discovered. To discuss your circumstances further please contact our advisors.
Whether you’ve been run over in a loading bay, suffered a fall from a balcony at work, or been left with burns after handling chemicals without the required protective wear, if your employer is liable for your injuries you could be eligible to make a claim. This is because your employer has a duty to ensure your safety while in the workplace.
You could also be able to claim for medical conditions that have developed over time if your employer did not take reasonable steps to reduce your risk of suffering work-related illnesses such as hand-arm vibration syndrome, tendonitis, mesothelioma, COPD, industrial deafness and more. In order to have a successful claim for compensation, the onus would be on you, the claimant, to prove that the risks were clear and your employer acted negligently in protecting your health and safety, which has lead to you developing the condition.
Some people might feel awkward making claims against their employers, but there are several reasons for a person to make a work-related injury claim. Not only could you be compensated for injuries that could have been prevented, but in claiming, you could highlight any failings at your workplace in terms of health and safety, and this could avoid the same fate befalling someone else. In addition, your employer should have liability insurance to pay for your claim, and they aren’t allowed to begin to treat you differently because you are making or have made a claim against them. There is strict legislation put in to place to protect employees from this type of prejudice.

Between September of 2018 and August of 2019, there were 1118 incidents of violent and sexual offences reported in Worthing Central. If you were a victim of an assault, whether physical or sexual, or you were injured trying to stop someone committing a crime, or even if you were traumatised when you witnessed a violent crime then you could use the services of our panel of no win no fee solicitors covering Worthing to assist with a criminal injury claim. Claims for criminal injuries are made through the government-run scheme, Criminal Injury Compensation Authority (CICA), which differs from the typical process for personal injury claims.
Sexual Historical Abuse
While the standard CICA claims time limit is usually 2 years from the date of the crime, in cases of sexual abuse that happened some time ago, you could have longer to make a claim. This is because it could be said that it would have taken some time to come to terms with the abuse, and you might not have been ready (had the emotional/mental capacity) to claim beforehand. If you have been in this situation, then our panel of no win no fee solicitors could handle your case with the sensitivity it deserves and will offer expert guidance and support throughout.
Some accident claims do not fit into any of the categories above, and some could fit into more than one category.
