Further Information

In a personal injury claim, the burden is on you, the 'Claimant', to prove that you have suffered injuries because of a breach of duty or negligence by someone else, whom is named the ‘Defendant’.

You must have suffered more than minor injuries and where relevant, you have incurred and will incurr financial losses. Typically, the injury will have taken place within the last 3 years.

Common causes of personal injuries in the UK

The most common causes of personal injury in the UK are road and work accidents.

Road Traffic Accidents (RTA)

Our road network is one of the most congested in Europe, and as such, we have some of the highest number of road traffic accidents. In 2020, there were 1,472 fatalities in reported road accidents and 22,014 serious injured. (There has been a decrease in accidents associated with the reduction of road traffic in response to the COVID 19 pandemic).* The primary cause of road traffic accidents is excessive speed and can involve a car, motorbike, pedestrian or as we are more frequently seeing, an e-scooter.

Accident at Work

The Health and Safety Executive reports annually on the staggering number of people who have suffered an accident at work.

We recently settled a personal injury claim for a client who suffered a serious laceration injury to his left arm whilst operating a grinding tool at work – read his case study here.
