What kind of accident can I claim compensation for?

There are a number of types of accidents where you could be entitled to compensation, whether you’ve been injured through someone else’s fault or by negligence by another party. Below are some of the most common accidents we often represent clients over:

Road traffic accidents Manchester

Each year in the UK, there are approximately 120,000 road traffic accidents. If you have been injured or if you have suffered damage to your car in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to compensation. 

Contact us today via our website or by calling us at 0161 768 3175 to speak to one of our personal injury solicitors about making a road traffic accident claim.

Housing disrepair accidents

Is your rented residence currently in a state of disrepair? Have you suffered financial losses as a result, such as damage to your belongings or experienced health issues due to the property’s condition?

If these circumstances apply to you, you may have the right to seek redress from your landlord through a housing disrepair compensation claim. It is your landlord’s responsibility to maintain the property in good condition, which includes addressing issues like structural defects, electrical problems, plumbing issues, or faulty heating systems.

If you have notified your landlord of these problems, they are obligated to take action within a reasonable timeframe.

In the event that your landlord fails to make the necessary repairs within a reasonable timeframe, we will formally inform them that they must complete the repairs and compensate you for any distress and inconvenience you’ve endured.

If your landlord disputes the need for repairs, we will arrange for a surveyor to inspect your property and produce a report detailing the necessary repairs. In rare cases where legal action becomes necessary, this report will serve as evidence to secure compensation.

Contact us via our website or by calling us at 0161 768 3175. We’ll arrange an appointment for you to speak to one of the expert lawyers on our team in Manchester about compensation for housing disrepair accidents.

Pedestrian accident claims

If you have been injured by a motorist while on foot, in an accident that was not your fault, we can help you with your claim for compensation. As top personal injury lawyers in Manchester, we are expertly qualified to represent clients with pedestrian accident claims.

We will go to the Police Accident Report to determine the liability of the other driver before moving forward with your compensation claim. In cases where the police did not respond to the incident, there is still a possibility of receiving compensation through the Motor Insurers Bureau. This body can provide compensation for cases involving unidentifiable or untraceable drivers.

Contact us by calling us at 0161 768 3175 or by visiting our website to get advice from a personal injury solicitor about pursuing a pedestrian accident claim.

Accidents at work

If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to compensation. We are legal experts with a proven track record of successful accident-at-work claims. Your employer has a legal responsibility to ensure your safety at the workplace to the extent that is feasible. 

Additionally, many employers have Employers Liability Insurance, which offers compensation in case of injury, rather than your employer providing direct compensation.

To be eligible for compensation, it is essential to demonstrate that your employer has acted negligently in some way. Once you get in touch and provide more details about your workplace accident, we can provide expert guidance to determine the viability of your potential claim.

Contact us today by calling us at 0161 768 3175 or via our website to book a consultation with an attorney about claiming damages for an accident at work.

Cosmetic treatment claims

In the United Kingdom, there is a lack of official oversight for cosmetic surgery, which means there are no established regulatory bodies enforcing consistent safety standards. As a result, an expanding number of individuals experience distress when cosmetic procedures do not yield the expected results.

If you have suffered injury or unintended consequences after having cosmetic treatment, get in touch to see if you could be entitled to compensation. Injuries arising from aesthetic treatments are increasingly common and we have expertise in cosmetic treatment compensation claims.

Our mission is to advocate for your compensation, addressing the physical, financial and psychological toll of unsuccessful cosmetic treatments. Furthermore, we will also actively seek compensation for the expenses incurred during any required follow-up revision surgeries you may have had to undergo.

Contact us today on 0161 768 3175 or online to speak to a personal injury attorney about your rights and options in a cosmetic treatment claim.

Motorcycle accident claims

If you have suffered personal injury or damage to your bike because of the negligence of another motorist, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. As personal injury lawyers, we have years of experience handling motorcycle accident claims.

In the majority of situations, we can facilitate the provision of a replacement bike for you to use while your own is undergoing repairs. If your health permits driving a car but not riding a motorcycle, we can also arrange for a temporary car rental if necessary.

Contact us today online by calling us at 0161 768 3175 to speak to one of our personal injury lawyers about the claims process for motorcycle accidents. We are leading lawyers in Manchester and the North West for all personal injury compensation claims.

Public liability claims

If you slip or fall in a shop, public pavement, or road, you may be able to seek compensation from the shop owner, or from the Local Authority, through a public liability claim.

You have a right to pursue compensation if you can establish that the property owner is accountable for your injury. You must be able to demonstrate their awareness of the property defect that led to your injury and their failure to take reasonable corrective measures – for instance, if the Local Authority lacks an adequate system for inspecting and addressing issues on their property.

Gathering photographic evidence of the defect shortly after any slips, trips and falls and obtaining comments or formal complaints from local residents about the defect can significantly strengthen your compensation claim.

Phone us at 0161 768 3175 or get in touch online to make an enquiry about the types of services our firm offers to our personal injury clients.

Medical negligence claims

Healthcare providers are obligated to adhere to stringent guidelines regarding the provision of medical treatment and the timing of such treatment. If you have endured undue suffering, received an incorrect diagnosis, or experienced a delayed diagnosis that necessitated further treatment or rendered treatment ineffective due to its timing, you have the right to seek compensation. We can help clients like you make a medical negligence claim.

We will offer guidance on whom to file a claim against, often the NHS Trust responsible for the treatment, or, in certain instances, a private healthcare practitioner.

You can make a medical negligence claim for:

  • Additional pain and the increased risk associated with the need for additional surgeries.
  • Emotional distress and trauma.
  • Lost earnings or extra educational expenses.
  • The cost of additional prescriptions and medical expenses.
  • Travel-related expenses.
  • Other costs associated with aiding your recovery.
  • wrongful death of a loved one.

Contact us online, or by calling us at 0161 768 3175 to book a consultation and find out more about reaching a medical negligence settlement with an expert personal injury lawyer.

What will I need to pay in order to make a claim?

We work for our clients on a ‘no win no fee’ basis. This means that you will not have to pay for our legal services upfront, and you will not need to pay our fees if we do not win your case. 

If you succeed in receiving money in damages from the other party or their insurance company, we will receive some of this as a fee for our services. This will be part of a pre-arranged fee agreement, so there will be no surprise costs for our clients.

Contact us via our website or ring us on 0161 768 3175 to speak to a PR Scully attorney about a personal injury claim.

How much compensation could I receive?

The compensation you will receive for your accident claim will depend on the nature and duration of the injury and how it has affected your life.

Before proceeding, we can provide an estimate of the compensation you’re likely to receive for your road traffic accident. Our legal team’s experience allows us to make informed predictions for the majority of cases.

Once we receive the medical report from the examining physician, and you are satisfied with it, we will share a copy with the at-fault insurer and request a compensation offer.

If the offered compensation is deemed inadequate and unfair, we will assess the need for pursuing legal action and potentially initiating court proceedings.

As a leading personal injury law firm in the Manchester area, we possess the expertise to accurately estimate the potential settlement based on our previous cases. We are committed to ensuring you receive the rightful compensation and will only charge legal fees if your claim is successful.

Contact us online or on 0161 768 3175 for more information from one of our attorneys about your accident claim.

Who will pay for my medical care?

If the fault insurer acknowledges liability, they are legally obliged to cover the expenses associated with the accident.

We will arrange a comprehensive report outlining the necessary medical support and additional assistance required. 

You are entitled to opt for private healthcare if it is more convenient for you. The fault insurer cannot contest covering the costs of private healthcare if this is the case. We will ensure that the necessary care is provided for as long as you need it, including for the rest of your life if necessary.

What will happen if I can’t work after my accident?

We can arrange an interim payment from the fault insurer to cover lost earnings if liability is not in dispute.

We will arrange an appointment with a doctor who will assess your injuries such as whiplash injuries and prepare a report on the extent to which you will be affected by them, which we will present to the fault insurers in order to claim compensation.
