Claim Slip And Fall Accident Compensation
In a report that was published in October 2018, by the Health & Safety Executive, it was shown that slips, trips and falls were the most common of all non-fatal accidents in the workplace in the UK, in the period that the report covered. These simple accidents can be caused by many different kinds of hazards, for example:
- Food or drink that has been spilt on the floor of a restaurant, café, or fast food outlet.
- Oil or grease that has been spilt on the floor of a garage or workshop.
- Damaged paving, such as potholes, cracked paving slabs, or uneven cobbles.
- Obstructions such as electrical wiring, cleaning materials or maintenance equipment left on a public walkway.
Despite the fact that these are simple, common accidents, they can result in very series, even traumatic injuries such as soft tissue injuries and bone fractures. If you are injured in a slip, trip or fall accident that was not your fault, we could be able to help you to claim for slip and fall accident compensation.
Claim Work Injury And Accident Compensation
All the time you are at work, according to employment law, it is your employer’s responsibility to keep you as safe as possible. Your employer is expected to do everything that is achievable to remove hazards from the workplace. This is an iterative process, the employer has to constantly review risks that could cause hazards, and work towards mitigating them as best they can. This is a legal obligation that every employer in the UK faces.
Therefore, if you are injured in a work-related accident, and you can prove that your employer did not do everything they could to mitigate the hazard that caused the accident at work, then you could be able to claim work injury compensation. If you need help with this, talk to our team on the number below. They will explain how our panel of accident claims solicitors can assist you in making accident claims in Aylesbury.

You can find further detailed information about the period 2013/14 – 2017/18, at the following link:
Claim Crime Victim Compensation
According to the Office of National Statistics, in a report that was published in 2018, that covered crimes in England and Wales, 1.7% of the population over the age of 16 had become the victim of some form of violent crime in the period the report pertains to. The victim of a violent crime can suffer both physical and psychological harm, that could be the basis of a claim for crime victim compensation.
However, the process for making a claim in this situation, is a little bit different, as you may not be able to pursue the criminal for damages. In this case, your solicitor will make a claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This is a Government body that provides a route to claiming compensation for victims of violent crimes such as a mugging, assault, rape, etc.
Claim For Public Liability Accidents
What do we mean by the term public accident? We are actually talking about two similar situations. The first of these relates to accidents that happen in a public place that the local authority operates. This could include a public park, public library, public swimming pool, public playground, etc. The second relates to accidents that happen in a place that is operated by a business, that the public is allowed to entire. For example, a shopping centre.
In the first scenario, it would be the local council that you pursue for damages as a result of public liability accidents that were caused by the actions of the council. In the second scenario, it would be the premises owner that would be pursued for compensation in the event a member of the public suffers a personal injury while on such premises. In either case, our accident solicitors could be able to help you to make a claim. Call our claims team on the number below to find out how.
Claim For Injuries Caused By Medical Negligence
Every medical professional in the UK has to follow a specific code of conduct, that is designed to ensure they always treat patients effectively, and to minimise the possibility of some kind of mistake injuring a patient unnecessarily. However, if this duty of care is breached as the medical professional provides a substandard service that results in avoidable harm then the patient maybe eligible to pursue a claim for damages.
- A patient that is undergoing a surgical procedure is injured as the surgeon operates on the incorrect organ.
- A patient may acquire a hospital infection due to poor hygiene standards.
- A pharmacist gives a patient the wrong medication, and this causes an adverse reaction, damaging the health of the patient.
If you become the victim of medical negligence in Aylesbury, for reasons such as these, whether you are visiting your GP, staying in a hospital, or attending Aylesbury accident and emergency, or any other medical facility, you could be able to make a claim if you are harmed due to clinical negligence. We could provide free legal advice, and our solicitors, who are authorised by the Solicitor Regulation Authority could assist you in getting the maximum compensation possible for your claim.

Can accident claims solicitors covering Aylesbury help if I’m injured in an accident I was party to blame for?
This is a common question especially when it comes to road traffic accident claims. In some cases, it may not be immediately clear who is at fault for a car accident. This is why you should never admit fault at the scene of an accident. Doing so may mean you admitting liability for something that wasn’t actually your fault. If you are partly to blame for a car accident, you could still claim compensation as long as there was blame on the other side. However, making a split liability claim may mean you get a reduced settlement in order to reflect your portion of liability. Making this type of claim could become somewhat complicated, especially if liability is disputed or refused. Having personal injury solicitors covering Aylesbury on your side could make the process less stressful. Your lawyer could have experience in how to handle such claims and they could take the legal legwork from your shoulders. This way, you could be confident your claim was being handled professionally, while you could concentrate on your recovery.
Could accident claims solicitors covering Aylesbury assist with claims for children or other people?
Some people may be in the position where they could be claiming on behalf of someone else. A common example of this could involve a parent claiming for a child who was injured in an accident that wasn’t their fault. In such cases, the parent could apply to be a litigation friend; someone who could make decisions in the best interests of the child about their case. When compensation comes through, it is usually to be held in a trust for the child. However, if the child requires a release of some of these funds for care, for example, an application could be made to the court for release of some funds.
In addition, people could also claim on behalf of those lacking the mental capacity to claim for themselves. This may mean those people who have suffered a traumatic brain injury for example, and wouldn’t have the capacity to make decisions for themselves. Another reason for claiming for someone else would be the bereaved relative of a person who died in a fatal accident or due to medical negligence, for example. The compensation payout in such cases could help with funeral expenses. We would be happy to talk to you about making such claims.
