If one party owes another party a duty of care, this means that they are legally obliged to take the person’s health and safety into account. For example, a shop has a duty of care towards their customers, meaning that they are legally obliged to provide them with a safe and hygienic environment in which to shop. If you are injured or made ill because of an accident in a shop, that was caused by negligence on the part of the shop (for example you slip on a wet floor and fracture your knee bone as there were no warning signs), then you could be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries. You could also claim for a cycling accident, make fall claims or other types of claim if you could prove there was a responsible party whose action or inaction led to your injury.

Would accident claims solicitors covering Barrow-in-Furness help me to claim for an accident that was partly my fault?
Not every accident claim is clear cut. In many cases, that could be fault that lies with more than one party. For this reason, we would advise you strongly to never admit fault at the scene of an accident. Even saying sorry at the scene of a road traffic accident could be construed as you admitting liability. While you might be under the impression that you were partially to blame for the accident, there may also have been blame on the other side. If there is more than one at fault party, you could still perhaps claim compensation if you have been injured. However, if you have contributed to your own injuries by way of your actions, your compensation could be reduced. This way, the award you get would reflect the proportion of blame on your side. Such claims can be tricky, however.
This is why it could be a wise idea to choose specialist solicitors with years of experience, who are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Choosing the solicitor with experience could mean that you have the best chance of getting compensation for your claim, as they would have past experience to draw on. They could also have experience in negotiating for the maximum compensation possible for your case.
Could accident claims solicitors covering Barrow-in-Furness assist with a claim on behalf of a child?
Should you be the parent of a child who has been injured in a car accident where they were not to blame, or injured at school in an accident involving another pupil, you might want to know whether you could make a claim on their behalf. In many cases, you could act as their litigation friend. This means that you could make all the decisions about the case on their behalf. One of our personal injury solicitors covering Barrow-in-Furness could assist with such claims. If you would like to call us for free legal advice on making your claim on behalf of a child, we would be only too happy to help you. We could offer you a free no obligation case check, and give you guidance and support in moving forward to make a claim on behalf of the child. If you choose not to make a claim on behalf of your child, they could claim for themselves once they reach 18. However, it may be more difficult to gather evidence later on in the process. Making a decision on which way to handle your claim would be easier if you have all the information on what options you could have.
