What Is An Accident Claims Solicitor Covering Hull?
You won’t find a personal injury claims calculator on this page. We prefer to give you a more personalised, better-focused estimate of how much you could be able to claim. What you will find, is plenty of information about the claims process itself.
Firstly, in order for you to be eligible to make a claim, you must have actually suffered some form of harm as a result of the actions of another party (at least partially). Who you claim against will depend on the circumstances of your accident. How much you are able to claim will depend on the severity of the harm you have suffered, and the effect this harm has had on your life.
In the case of accidents that were partially caused by the claimant, the claimant’s legal team will negotiate an agreed level of liability with the defendant’s solicitor. Any settlement that is subsequently achieved, will be driven by this.

I Had An Accident At Work, Can I Claim?
While you are at work, you should be provided with a safe working environment at all times. Multiple levels of regulations such as the Occupiers Liability Act and all Health and Safety directives are in place to enforce this legal requirement. When there is a lapse in compliance, it can expose a worker to risk. For example:
- Being exposed to chemicals that could cause harm.
- Manual lifting injuries.
- Being hit by a falling object.
- Ear damage through excessive noise.
- Accidents involving work vehicles.
- Workplace slips, trips, and falls.
- Stress, mental trauma, and other psychological conditions.
Risks/hazards such as these could leave a worker in a position to make an accident at work claim. Do you need some accident at work advice? Speak to one of our claim advisors, they can help you further.
Criminal Injuries Or Assault Claims
Victims of a violent crime, such as rape, assault or a mugging, do have a route to making a claim, even if the perpetrator of the crime is never apprehended, or lacks the financial means to compensate their victim. The Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), is a UK Government operated body, that provides claimants with a way to receive compensation for injuries that they received, whether physical or psychological.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you on whether or not it will be CICA that you make your request for criminal injury compensation. If you would like to know more, speak to a member of our team on the number at the end of the page.
I Had A Slip And Fall Accident, Can I Claim?
Slips, trips and falls are a very common kind of accident that UK residents become the victim of each year. If you have had a slip and fall accident, and it can be proven that the hazard that caused the accident was the responsibility of a third party, you could be able to make a claim. For example:
- You slipped on a wet or dirty floor in a restaurant, that should have been cleaned or signposted.
- You tripped on a torn carpet in a retail store, that should have been maintained better.
- You fell down some stairs in a hotel, due to broken lighting or a damaged handrail.

Hull Area Medical Negligence Claims
All medical professionals are held to a high standard, and in most cases, they perform their duties to the best of their ability. Each medical expert that you come into contact with, in a healthcare role, is expected to never cause harm to a patient in a way that could have been avoided. Such a breach of duty of care, when it results in harm to a patient, could result in the injured patient being eligible to make a claim. This relates to all medical professionals. Your GP, a surgeon, nurses at your local hospital, your dentist, your pharmacist, etc. As long as you are within the accident claims time limit, and it can be proven that clinical negligence caused you harm, you could be able to claim for medical accident compensation.
I Was Injured In A Public Place, Can I Claim?
The local authority or council is responsible for maintaining all public places to a safe standard. This includes parks, roads, public footpaths, car parks, etc. as well as public buildings such as a library, leisure centres or council-owned public swimming pool. Therefore, if you are injured in an accident that was caused by a hazard that the local council was responsible for, for example, you tripped on a pavement, or slipped on a wet floor in a council building, you could be able to make a claim.
