If you have been injured in an accident, you may find yourself suffering from more than a personal injury and mental distress. Depending on the severity of the injury, you could incur a variety of costs relating to medical treatment, travel and time off work. In the most serious cases, a career may be cut short and earning potential reduced.
If that accident was someone else’s fault, due to another person’s negligence or failure to put appropriate safeguards in place, you would be entitled to compensation for the impact of the injury. It is possible to claim such compensation up to three years after the accident; longer if the injured person is under eighteen.
In most cases, the person or company responsible will be covered by an insurance policy. The insurers may even contact you promptly to offer you a sum of money. However, you should always consult a solicitor before accepting any offer of compensation. The insurance company’s objective is to keep their costs to a minimum, and they may not offer everything that you deserve.
Our personal injury law team has a strong track record in obtaining compensation for accident victims; and in most cases we have obtained substantially more than was initially offered by the insurance company. We represent people from across England and Wales who have had a wide range of accidents, resulting in relatively minor soft-tissue injuries or injuries of extreme severity, including:
- road traffic accidents; and
- a workplace accidents or diseases.
- life-changing injuries, such as head or spinal injuries;
- fatal accidents, including representation at the inquest;
Mooney Everett Solicitors offer an initial consultation. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your accident with a specialist injury lawyer, explore your options and assess whether you may be entitled to compensation. We will explain everything in plain English, including how your claim could be funded by a no win, no fee arrangement, meaning that you would have no legal costs if you were not successful.
