You can make a personal injury claim with our accident solicitors covering Gosport if you have been injured due to a slip, trip and fall that could have been prevented had the right health and safety procedures been adhered to. If there is evidence that the fall was caused by an avoidable hazard which the owner of the premises where the accident took place could or should have taken action to prevent then this will serve as the basis for your claim. Examples of this could include, leaving wet patches of floor unmarked without a warning sign, allowing wiring to be left out on the floor, having sudden unexpected steps without being marked out with a “mind your step sign”.

It is not only injuries from accidents that our panel of accident claims solicitors can help you claim compensation for, you can also claim compensation for injuries or psychological harm that you have suffered as a result of a criminal assault.

The money you will receive from a successful compensation claim will come from CICA, the Governments Criminal Injury Compensation Authority. You can successfully claim for criminal assault compensation even without a conviction of the person responsible, so long as you do have proof that you were injured in the incident and/or have suffered psychological harm as a result.

Why Claim With A Personal Injury Solicitor?
You are not actually legally required to have a personal injury solicitor to represent you and your case, claimants can represent themselves even if you have no legal qualifications or prior legal experience. You should give yourself the best chance of making a successful accident compensation claim by having a professional represent you, gather evidence, provide you with expert legal advice and arrange for you to have a medical examination. Our no win no fee solicitors will also ensure that you are regularly updated with every development in your accident claims progress.
Why Does It Not Matter Where My Personal Injury Solicitor Is Located?
It does not matter where your personal injury lawyer is located because there is actually no requirement for you and your personal injury lawyer to actually meet in person in order to carry out an accident claim. It is perfectly possible and acceptable to make all arrangements for your case, and to receive updates on the progress of your claim from your solicitor entirely by phone, email or social media. It is quite likely that you will go through the entire claims process without ever actually meeting your accident solicitor in person if you do not want to. Our accident claims solicitors are not based in Gosport but we can cover the area through many various communication methods.
Why May I Be Asked To See A Doctor?
Your accident claim solicitor will refer you to a doctor for a medical examination because you must have evidence that you have been injured to support your claim. In order to prove that you were indeed injured or suffered psychological harm in your accident you will need the official statement of a doctor. In addition to proving that you were injured, a medical examination will confirm the extent of your injuries, which will also be useful in determining how much compensation you may be entitled to in the event that your claim is successful.
Where Could I Have A Medical Examination?
We always endeavour to provide claimants with medical experts within their area or as close to as we can. We work with a panel of doctors based all over the UK. You can read the names and addresses for the doctors we work with nearest to you in the list below.
