Accident claims solicitors covering Bexhill could assist you with legal representation if you’ve had an accident in Bexhill that was not your fault but due to the negligence of another who breached their duty of care towards you causing preventable suffering. This could be a medical malpractice case, a claim for compensation for whiplash suffered in an accident on a Bexhill road, an injury in a public place claim, a slip and fall claim, or some other accident that was not your fault and where another party was liable.
When it comes to retaining the services of an accident claim solicitor, you might have seen that there are many offering seemingly the same services, not just in your area but right across the UK. There are certain things you might want to look into when trying to find the most appropriate accident claim solicitors for your accident claims in Bexhill.
Initially, you might want to check into their experience. Find out how long they’ve been practicing and perhaps about some of the cases they’ve worked on before that could be similar to yours. The key is getting someone with relevant experience – if your case is medical negligence, then someone with experience of medical negligence cases could be ideal. If it’s criminal injury, then someone with experience in this field could be beneficial.
As well as this, it might be worth seeing if you could find any reviews of the solicitor online. We’d advise using independent sites to check into this – naturally, on their own website, some solicitors could just use the most positive reviews. Independent sites could allow you to see the full picture of what the solicitor offers.
Finally, you may wish to discuss payment terms. While no win no fee solicitors do not require payment upfront, the percentage of your compensation payout could vary from solicitor to solicitor. Obviously, you might not want to choose the cheapest no win no fee solicitor for your case, but you might also not want to pay over the odds – even though the percentage is capped at a quarter of your compensation payout.
Below, we discuss all about how accident claim solicitors could help in a number of different situations, from answering questions about how to claim criminal injury compensation and how to make an accident at work claim, to discussing the accident claims time limit and why you don’t have to search for ‘solicitors near me’ to find an appropriate solicitor for accident claims in Bexhill. We’ll also introduce the services our panel of accident claims solicitors offer.
Your employer has a duty by law to make sure that you are able to do your job in a workplace that is safe. You should also be able to perform the tasks that are part of your job safely. Your employer can take various steps to achieve this, such as:
- Ensuring the workplace is free of any identifiable hazards such as trip hazards.
- Making risk assessments of tasks pertaining to your job and reducing the risks to you based on these assessments.
- Training you on how to operate machinery correctly and safely.
- Giving you protective equipment etc.
These are just a few examples. If your employer doesn’t take the required steps to reduce risks to as low as would be considered to be reasonable, then if you’re injured at work, you could seek accident claims solicitors covering Bexhill to help with workplace injury claims.

Whether you’ve been injured in a Bexhill accident on A259, or you’ve been in a traffic accident on a smaller residential road, if another driver, road user or other party were at fault, you could consider making accident claims in Bexhill for compensation.
A Bexhill road traffic accident could occur in many different ways. You could have been a pedestrian crossing the road and a driver may have failed to stop at the crossing, or you may have been in a road crash involving a drunk driver. You could be a driver, passenger, motorcyclist or pedestrian. If you are injured due to the negligence of another road user you could look for accident claims solicitors covering Bexhill to help you claim not only for the physical injuries you might have suffered but also for any financial costs you’ve had to bear as a direct consequence of the accident such as medical fees, care costs and loss of income.
If you have landed on this page as you were looking for a personal injury claims calculator to see if your slip and fall claim was worth pursuing, then you might wish to know that even minor injuries could lead to accident claims in Bexhill for slips and falls. Whether you fell in a broken pavement accident on a Bexhill road, spraining your ankle, or you fell off an improperly secured ladder at work, you could use accident claims solicitors covering Bexhill to help you make a claim.

Almost anyone could find themselves as a victim of crime, and whether you’ve been sexually assaulted, or been the victim of GBH or ABH, some crimes could leave you injured quite badly. There is a government agency in place that does help to compensate victims of this kind of injury, and they are the CICA. Accident claims solicitors covering Bexhill could assist with claims to the CICA regarding criminal injuries you’ve received, whether these are emotional or physical.
You could also claim not as a direct target of the criminal, but as someone that has been harmed in another way because of the criminal behaviour, for example, if you have been injured trying to stop a crime, or you’ve been traumatised because you witnessed a violent event. If you’re looking at making accident claims in Bexhill for this type of event, then you may want to begin your claim quickly, as there is a 2-year personal injury claim time limit for many of these claims. However, some exceptions may exist in the case of historical abuse and the like.
Any place that a member of the public could visit, whether they have to pay to enter the place or not, is someone’s responsibility, such as public parks often being the local authority’s responsibility, or a restaurant being the restaurant owner’s responsibility. These people with responsibility have a duty to make these places safe for you to visit, and if you are injured in these places because they haven’t taken steps to ensure your safety, you could look into making accident claims in Bexhill for compensation for physical, mental and financial damages that have occurred directly because of their negligence.

If a medical or healthcare professional, whether a GP, surgeon, midwife, dentist or care home worker, was negligent in your treatment and your health suffered as a result, this could result in you being able to make accident claims in Bexhill for clinical negligence.

- A midwife failing to notice that your baby or you were in distress, leading to birth injury.
- A dentist removing a tooth that was healthy instead of the one that was damaged.
- A surgeon operating on the wrong limb.
- Being negligently misdiagnosed by your GP leading to treatment that made you sick because you didn‘t need it.

If you’re wondering whether you would have to find a large sum of money to put forward in order to retain your personal injury lawyer, then you might not have heard of the no win no fee approach. A no win no fee solicitor does not require payment upfront. In fact, they do not require payment until your case is finished. You would agree prior to the personal injury solicitor taking on your case, a percentage of compensation that would be paid to your lawyer on successful completion of a settlement. This must, be capped by law at 25 percent of the accident compensation payout. You may be asked to take out insurance however, so do speak to accident claims solicitors covering Bexhill about what needs to be done to protect you from financial risk when making your accident claim.
