If you or a relative have suffered an injury which has resulted in a permanent disability or ongoing condition, it will have a significant impact on the quality of life of both the injured person and their family. A life-changing injury also creates mental and financial stress for all concerned.
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.
The Mooney Everett 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 can represent people from across England and Wales who have had a wide range of injuries, including:
- head and brain injuries;
- spinal cord injury and paralysis;
- loss of a limb;
- severe burns; and
- organ damage.
Mooney Everett Solicitors offer an initial consultation. This gives you the opportunity to discuss the 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.
