Road Traffic Accident Claims Manchester

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, please contact our legal team for an initial consultation at 0800 083 6290. 

PR Scully & Co act on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis for almost all clients when recovering compensation on your behalf.

Damage to your car

You are not obligated to claim against your policy, regardless of the comprehensiveness of your insurance.

We will arrange for an engineer to inspect your car and assess repair costs. We also arrange a replacement car for you while your own is being repaired. 

After the repairs, we will recover the costs of the repair and of the hire car from insurers.

If your car has been written off, you have many options: the engineer will assess the salvage value, and you will receive the market value of the car, less the salvage value, or you can sell the salvage yourself, or you can even have the car repaired if the engineer confirms it is safe to be repaired

Personal injury in Manchester

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.

If physiotherapy is required, we can also recover the cost of this from the fault insurer.

We will advise you in advance how much compensation you are likely to receive, based on our experience with similar cases.

Serious Injury Claims Manchester  

Short-term medical needs

If the fault insurer accepts liability, we will arrange an Immediate Needs Assessment, a report detailing the medical help and other assistance needed. The fault insurer is obligated to meet this cost.

Long-term medical needs

You are entitled to opt for private healthcare if it is more convenient for you. The fault insurer cannot object to paying for 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.

HOUSING DISREPAIR CLAIMS MANCHESTER

Is your rental home in a state of disrepair? Have you lost out financially because of it – for example, has there been damage to your furniture? Or have you suffered ill health because of the disrepair?

If so, you may have rights to claim compensation from your landlord. They are under an obligation to keep the property out of a state of disrepair, e.g., free from structural defects, faulty electrics, failing pipes or faulty central heating. If you have given your landlord notice of the faults in the property, they must take action within a reasonable period. 

If your landlord fails to make repairs in a reasonable period of time, we will put them on notice to inform them that they must carry out the repairs, and pay compensation to you for the distress and inconvenience you have endured.

If they deny that repairs are needed, we will arrange for a Surveyor to visit your property and prepare a report on the needed repairs. If the case then has to go to court (although this is rare), this report will be used to secure compensation.

Please call us today to find out more about claiming compensation for housing disrepair in Manchester, on 0800 083 6290, or contact us online at https://www.prscully.com/contact-us.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENT CLAIMS MANCHESTER

We will use the Police Accident Report to establish if the other driver was at fault before we can proceed with your compensation claim. If you or any witnesses have the registration number of the car at fault, we will be able to trace their details to find their identity and locate their insurer. 

Even if the police did not attend the scene, you may still be able to receive compensation, through the Motor Insurers Bureau. This organisation can grant compensation to untraceable drivers.

Receiving compensation

If liability for the accident is not in dispute, we will arrange for an interim payment to be made by the insurers of the other driver, to cover lost earnings if you cannot work due to injury.

We will arrange an appointment with a doctor who will assess your 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.

If physiotherapy is required, we can also recover the cost of this from the fault insurer.

We will be able to advise you in advance how much compensation you are likely to receive, based on our experience with similar cases. If the amount of compensation offered by the insurer is too low, we can also issue professional advice about whether it would be in your best interests to go to court or not.

Please call us today at 0800 083 6290, to find out more about claiming compensation for pedestrian accident claims in Manchester, or contact us online.

ACCIDENT AT WORK PERSONAL INJURY CLAIM MANCHESTER

Your employer is under an obligation to make sure you are safe in your workplace, as far as is practicable. Employers also often have Employers Liability Insurance in place, which will provide compensation in the event of injury, rather than your employer directly.

In order to receive compensation, it must be possible to prove that your employer has been negligent in some way. After you contact us and relay the details of your accident, we will be able to offer professional advice about whether you have a claim or not.

The process of claiming compensation

  • We will take the details from you and ask your employer for the details of their liability insurance.
  • If the value of the claim is below £25,000, we will notify them of it online.
  • Their insurers will then have 3 months to respond.
  • If they accept liability, we will arrange for your medical examination, and then send the insurers your medical report along with a recommendation of how much compensation you are owed.
    • If they respond with a fair offer, we will advise you to accept
    • If they do not offer reasonable compensation, we will request an interim payment for you, and then issue Court proceedings. The Court will assess the level of damages, but you will not need to attend the Court yourself.
  • If liability is disputed, we will issue Court proceedings against your employer, if we are satisfied that you have a strong case. 

Please call us today at 0800 083 6290, to find out more about claiming compensation for accident at work claims in Manchester, or contact us online.

COSMETIC TREATMENT CLAIMS MANCHESTER

Cosmetic surgery in the UK is not regulated by an official body to enforce industry-wide safety standards, leaving an increasing number of people devastated when operations go wrong.

We will claim compensation on your behalf for the physical, financial, and psychological cost of imperfect cosmetic treatments.

We will also pursue claims for the costs of any necessary revision surgery that you have had to undergo subsequently.

Please call us today at 0800 083 6290, to find out more about claiming compensation for cosmetic treatment compensation claims in Manchester, or contact us online.

MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT CLAIMS MANCHESTER

If you have been injured or suffered damage to your bike while riding your motorcycle because of the carelessness of another driver, we will fight for you to receive compensation. 

Damage to your bike

If you have fully comprehensive insurance, you may choose to let your own insurers deal with the damage to your bike. If you have to pay an excess, you can claim this back from the third-party insurer, and your no-claims bonus will not be affected as long as liability is accepted.

However, you are not obliged to claim against your own policy if the accident was not your fault. If liability is accepted by the other driver, we will organise for the other insurer to pay a repairer of your choosing.

If you have third-party insurance, you cannot claim against your own policy for the cost of repairs. As long as liability is accepted by the other insurer, we can arrange for a repairer to complete the repairs, and then secure payment from the other insurer for the cost of the repairs.

In most cases, we can arrange for you to use a hire bike while your own is off the road. If you are not well enough to ride a motorcycle but well enough to drive a car, we can arrange for a hire car instead if needed.

Compensation for injury

If liability for the accident is not in dispute, we will arrange for an interim payment to be made by the insurers of the other driver, to cover lost earnings if you cannot work due to injury.

We will arrange an appointment with a doctor who will assess your 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.

If physiotherapy is required, we can also recover the cost of this from the fault insurer.

We will be able to advise you in advance how much compensation you are likely to receive, based on our experience with similar cases. If the amount of compensation offered by the insurer is too low, we can also issue professional advice about whether it would be in your best interests to go to court or not.

PUBLIC LIABILITY CLAIMS

If you have a fall in a shop, public pavement or road, you may be able to claim compensation from the shopowner or the Local Authority.

You are entitled to compensation if you can demonstrate that the landowner was responsible for your injury. You must be able to prove that they were aware of the defect in their property that caused the injury, and did not take reasonable steps to remedy it – for example, if the Local Authority does not have a reasonable system of inspection and repair in place for their land.

It will help your claim to take photos of the defect soon after the accident has taken place. Comments or formal complaints from local people about the defect are also useful evidence.

The procedure

  • We will take the details from you and ask the landowner for the details of their public liability insurance.
  • If the value of the claim is below £25,000, we will notify them of it online.
  • Their insurers will then have 3 months to respond.
  • If they accept liability, we will arrange for your medical examination, and then send the insurers your medical report along with a recommendation of how much compensation you are owed.
    • If they respond with a fair offer, we will advise you to accept
    • If they do not offer reasonable compensation, we will request an interim payment for you, and then issue Court proceedings. The Court will assess the level of damages, but you will not need to attend Court yourself.
  • If liability is disputed, we will issue Court proceedings against the landowner, if we are satisfied that you have a strong case. 

Please call us today at 0800 083 6290, to find out more about claiming compensation for public liability compensation claims, or contact us online.  

MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS

All healthcare providers are bound to follow strict guidelines about how and when they must provide medical treatment. If you have suffered unnecessary pain, misdiagnosis or a delayed diagnosis that necessitates more treatment (or means that it is too late to give treatment), then you are entitled to compensation.

We will advise you who to claim against – often the NHS Trust that provided the treatment, or in some cases a private practitioner.

What can I claim for?

  • Additional pain and risk caused by the need for further operations
  • Emotional trauma
  • Lost earnings or additional study costs
  • Cost of additional prescriptions and medical costs
  • Travel expenses
  • Other costs of helping with recovery

How much will it cost to make a claim?

In medical negligence cases, we often provide representation on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. 

If we win the case, we ask clients to pay some of our fees from their compensation. This will never be any more than 25% of the total compensation and often will be less.

Please call us today for more information at 0800 083 6290, or contact us online.

INJURY COMPENSATION CLAIMS MANCHESTER – OVERVIEW

  • After you contact us, we will assess whether we can prove that the healthcare practitioner was negligent. We will also assess the degree of injury and loss that has occurred
  • We will then discuss with you the means of funding your legal costs. This might be a ‘no win, no fee’ agreement, Legal Expenses Insurance, or Trade Union Funding.
  • We will then obtain your medical records, and obtain evidence from a medical professional to confirm whether the procedure carried out was substandard.
  • Then, we will present your claim to the defendant as a Letter of Claim. This letter will set out the allegations of negligence, your injuries, prognosis for recovery, and details of any other financial losses. A valuation of the claim may also be made at this point.
  • The defendant must respond to the letter within 4 months, stating whether they admit to breach of duty or not.
  • If they admit to breach of duty, they must agree a settlement, or put forward a counter-offer to begin negotiations.
