There are more and more car and motorbike accidents every day. This is no surprise as more of us tend to own vehicles than ever before. All drivers and motorcyclists are obliged by law to exercise reasonable care when in control of vehicle. If you are injured in a road traffic accident and it wasn't your fault, then you may be entitled to make a compensation claim against the person who was at fault. This is in addition to any claim made for a damaged car or motorbike. Car accident compensation can be made by an occupant of a vehicle whereby the injury was as a result of a negligent driver.

This is equally so for an injury you may have suffered as a pillion passenger on a motorbike. Over 300,000 people are injured as a result of road accidents each year and car accident solicitors such as Adamson Law have the expertise to address any car or motorbike accident claim in the UK. The aim of accident compensation is to put the claimant back into the position they were in before the accident took place. Most of us don't anticipate an accident or the subsequent inconveniences they bring. In fact the very nature of a car accident injury can mean that a person's life can be changed in an instant so it is important to get the right advice from professionals with the right expertise to handle your claim. After being involved in an accident, you may think that you have not actually been injured but you should ensure you see a medical practitioner as soon as possible as some injuries can initially go unnoticed.

An accident can aggravate existing injuries as well as causing new ones. At Adamson Law, our car accident specialists have a wealth of knowledge which will help you to get the compensation that you deserve. It is very important to make your claim as soon as possible as presently legislation only allows for accident claims that have occurred within in the last three years.

We've all tripped up or fallen over at some point in our lives. That embarrassing moment when you realise that you're no longer standing on two feet is familiar to everyone. Generally when this happens, we will most likely get up and dust ourselves off with nothing more than a bruised ego. However some trips and falls can and do cause injury.

If you are injured as a result of a trip or fall in a public place, such as a shop or office floor, you might be eligible to make a claim for compensation. Many accidents at work will involve an employee tripping over an object on the floor and sustaining an injury. A wire not properly secured or a piece of carpet will certainly be an accident waiting to happen and a clear breach of health and safety law. A slip at work could easily result in a sprained ankle or worse. Similarly if you have succumbed to a wet shop floor in a supermarket or tripped up on a broken paving stone in the street then you are likely to have a claim. Any claim resulting from a trip or fall in a shop or supermarket will usually be against the owner's public liability insurance. If the fall was on a public pavement, then the claim is likely to be brought against the local council assuming they had indeed been negligent. You cannot normally claim if you have tripped over an object left on council property by a member of the public. Of course a claim can be made for incidents occurring on private property or land as long as the owner was at fault and had the financial means to pay for the compensation.

If you have suffered an injury as a result of a trip at work, in a shop or in the street and the incident occurred within the last three years, then Adamsons Law can help. Our dedicated experts are waiting to assist you. Call our accident advice line today on 0161 694 2750. so you can begin to get compensated for your injury without delay.

There is said to be over a million people that suffer from an accident at work every year. Various incidents can occur ranging from a cut finger or a sprained wrist to a potentially fatal accident resulting in the attendance of emergency services. Your employer has a legal obligation to ensure that you are safe at work whilst in the process of conducting your job. This area of law is covered by Employer's Liability.

It is the responsibility of your employer to provide at level of protection which is adequate to ensure your safety and well being. If you suffer an injury at work you may be entitled to compensation if you can prove that the injury was not your fault. This could mean that the injury was caused by your employer directly, a fellow employee or even a company that was on the site of your employer at the time. Work accident compensation is nothing new as more and more employees are falling victim to work related injuries every day. Although legal aid has been largely withdrawn since the 1990's, most cases taken on by Adamson Law will be dealt with on a no win no fee basis. Some accident at work solicitors may not provide this facility which may leave some people feeling that they cannot afford access to the legal system. You should never be afraid to make a claim for compensation against your employers in fear of being dismissed or treated unfairly. Employers are not allowed by law to treat employees in this way.

They are also required by law to have sufficient work insurance in place in order to cover for accidents in work. Ultimately it will be your employer's insurance company that will pay for any compensation awarded. It is however important to abide by all the rules and regulations that have been put in place by your employers. This will include for example wearing all the appropriate safety equipment provided by the company. Many employers have been known to use contributory negligence as a means of reducing their liability by assigning some blame to the employee.

We tend to place our ultimate trust in doctors and nurses. This is not a surprise considering the nature of their work. These are professionals who have trained for years to save lives and who possess the skills and knowledge far beyond the understanding of the average person. The reality is that doctors and nurses much like you and I, make mistakes. When they make these mistakes, it can often result in medical complications and injury which we wouldn't reasonably expect to happen. This is covered by the area of medical negligence, which falls under the wider umbrella of professional negligence. Fortunately mistakes in the medical profession are rare but patients need to be protected when things go wrong.

NHS complaints have been rising recently as a result of suspected clinical negligence after various surgical procedures. Adamsons Law have experts in place who will advice and assist their clients in the most sensitive manner where negligence has occurred. They are also facilities in place if you need to make a specific complaint about a GP. It should be noted that a medical negligence claim is not the easiest to pursue. Detailed evidence needs to be collected and a medical negligence solicitor needs to be contacted as soon as soon as possible. There has to be unequivocal evidence to prove that the professional was negligent and that you suffered as a result of this.

Medical negligence covers all manner of professional institutions and individuals where medical care has been administered. Surgeons, dentists, nurses and GPs can all be liable if they fail to act with due care and attention.

Adamsons Law can help you win a claim for compensation. We utilise all the appropriate resources and follow the strict rules and guidelines necessary in order to maximise your chances of success.

Court cases for medical negligence can last for months and possibly years. This prospect will no doubt deter many patients as they may fear being liable for legal costs which will typically run into thousands of pounds. At Adamsons Law, we provide expert consultation for free on a no win no fee basis. So, put your mind at rest and give us a call today.

Generally cars and pedestrians don't mix. With roads getting more and more congested with traffic every day, it's inevitable that there will be collisions from time to time. The problem is that the pedestrian will always come off worse. In fact, 30,000 UK pedestrians are injured each year which is quite an alarming figure. So if you have been unfortunate enough to get hit by a car, what are your options? Fortunately many people live to tell the tale and therefore if a driver has been negligent, then you can make a pedestrian compensation claim. Once you have engaged a solicitor, they will pursue a claim against the driver's insurance. However, not all negligent drivers have insurance and in the case of a lack of insurance where a car has been stolen, then you may be able to claim compensation from the Motor Insurance Bureau. Depending on your ability after being struck, you should try to get the details of witnesses and take photos of the scene if you happen to have a camera in your possession. A call to the police is advisable especially if the driver has left the scene without stopping.

In order to be successful in a car accident injury claim you must be free from blame yourself. A pedestrian walking into the road without looking or using a non designated crossing is unlikely to be successful in a claim for compensation. In fact if you are hit by a car and it was your fault as opposed to the car driver, then you yourself can be pursued for a claim if there was damage to the vehicle concerned. This outcome is rare but it highlights the fact that care and responsibility should be taken by pedestrians if they want to be protected by the full force of the law.

If you have been injured by a car and it wasn't your fault then Adamsons Law should be your next call. We have a team of experts in this field to assist you in your claim. Our consultation is free and we will provide you with a no win no fee service.
