If you’re injured in Macclesfield and the incident that caused your injury was not your fault, you might well be wondering whether you could be eligible to make a claim. We have accident claims solicitors covering Macclesfield that could help you. It doesn’t matter whether you have been injured in a road traffic accident, suffered a motorcycle injury, or wish to make a clinical negligence claim. Our panel of accident claims solicitors could help. By calling our team, we can assist with accident claims advice you could trust, along with a free impartial assessment of your circumstances.
But how do you know someone is liable for your injury? Could you answer yes to the following questions?
- Have you been involved in an incident that has caused you harm?
- Was it someone else’s fault? (Either by their behaviour, e.g. a speeding driver causing a road traffic accident or by their negligence, e.g. an employer’s failure to provide a safe workplace leading to a fatal accident)
- Are you claiming before the relevant accident claims time limit is up? This could differ in some cases but is generally 3 years after the accident date. In cases against CICA, it could be less, at 2 years, but in some cases, it could be longer. If you’re unclear on whether you’re within the limit, please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you could answer yes to the questions above, then it could be possible for you to consider making accident claims in Macclesfield. If you’re not quite sure, then do call the Accident Claims UK team – 0800 073 8801 and we could help find out whether you are eligible to make a claim. Otherwise, read on for information relating to making different types of claims, and obtaining the services of a no win no fee solicitor to help you.

Whatever healthcare setting you were in, if negligence by staff led to harm to your health suffering, they would be failing in their duty of care towards you, and therefore you could look into making a medical negligence claim with our panel of accident claims solicitors covering Macclesfield.
This could include acts of:
- Surgical negligence
- GP negligence

People could slip or trip or fall in a variety of places within Macclesfield. Where you had the accident could largely dictate who a claim would be made against. While accident claims solicitors covering Macclesfield would be able to help work this out for you, these examples could also help.
- If you were injured on a public pathway, or in a public park, a claim could be made against the council if they were aware of the hazards and did nothing to warn the public or make changes to the area.
- If you were injured in a shopping centre, you may be making claims against the owner/operator of the shopping centre – this could be the council or a private company.
Wherever you were injured, if it could have been prevented and the person responsible for the area did not take steps to prevent the foreseeable risks, then you could look for a personal injury solicitor to help you go forward with a claim.
Making an accident at work claim against your employer might feel a little daunting. However, your employer has a duty to ensure that your health and safety is taken care of while you working for them. This is a legal requirement.
If they fail to risk assess your workplace and the tasks you must complete for your job, and reduce risks as much as reasonably possible, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
Accident claims for workplace injuries could come from a single incident or accident, such as instances where an employer may have failed to provide PPE for an employee, and they have been injured because they were not protected. Another way for accident claims in Macclesfield to be made is for incidences of industrial illness that comes on over a period of time from ongoing tasks – this could include carpal tunnel syndrome from an improperly set up workstation and lack of regular breaks, or could be asbestosis if someone has been exposed to asbestos over a period of time.

If you’re looking to make a road traffic accident compensation claim for injuries suffered in a car accident, bus accident, motorbike accident or any other accident that has happened on the road, you might want to seek the help of our solicitors covering Macclesfield. If the accident was not your fault and you suffered injuries, then you could make an accident claim with a personal injury lawyer.
There are some things you could do to help your personal injury solicitor build a case for your road traffic accident claim, and this includes:
- Taking down notes of what has happened while events are still fresh in your mind
- Taking down witness details, as well as the other driver’s details
- Taking photographs of the scene of the accident
Of course, you may not be able to do all this if you are suffering from traumatic injuries that need immediate treatment, and you should always put your health first. Even if you think you have minor injuries, it would also be wise to seek a doctor’s opinion, as you might still have whiplash. Whether you have managed to get evidence or not of what has happened, you could still make a claim. Just get in touch and we could assess your case for you.
Victims of crime might not just be injured physically by acts of violence committed against them. They might also be injured psychologically. Claims through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority could be made for those who were the victim of ABH, assault and battery, GBH and sexual assault to name but a few acts of violence. As well as this, witnesses to violent attacks may also be psychologically affected and therefore could potentially make a claim for trauma or PTSD through CICA. If you have suffered either mentally or physically because of someone else’s violent act, then our accident claims solicitors covering Macclesfield could potentially help you make a claim for compensation.
If you have had an accident in a public place, you might be wondering who could be held accountable if the accident was not your fault. Accident claims in Macclesfield could be brought against a number of different entities, depending on where you were when the accident occurred and who was responsible for the area. For example, public pavements, parks and council buildings could be the responsibility of the local council. If they are not kept to a standard that reduces risks of injury to members of the public using them, then it could be that you could hold the council responsible for accidents that occur because of disrepair, poor maintenance, etc. For some public places, there are other entities responsible, such as shopping centre owners/operators and gym owners/operators. If you’re unsure who would be to blame for an accident that happened to you resulting in an injury, then we would be happy to help you.

How do no win no fee accident claims solicitors covering Macclesfield work?
If you’re interested in finding out more about the no win no fee service our personal injury solicitors covering Macclesfield offer, then you might find the below information interesting.
As we previously mentioned, you would not need to pay your lawyer anything upfront to start working on your claim. Instead, they would send you out a Conditional Fee Agreement to sign and return to them. This is a document that would contain the details of the success fee (a small legally capped proportion of your payout), with the condition that this is only payable in cases that lead to a compensation settlement or award. When you sign and return this agreement to your chosen lawyer, they would then be able to begin putting together your claim for compensation.
The lawyer would negotiate a compensation settlement for you, or take your case through the courts so that you could be awarded compensation. When your compensation then comes through, the solicitor will deduct their success fee. The balance of the compensation settlement would be for your benefit.
If you’re wondering what would happen if your claim failed, you would not need to have to worry about paying your solicitors successfully. You would not have to pay their costs either. If your solicitor incurred costs whilst they were in pursuit of your claim, you would not be expected to cover these.
If you would like to learn more about making claims under these terms we would be only too happy to talk you through the process in further detail.
