By Joanne Jeffries. Last Updated September 15th 2021. Here, you’ll find our guide to accident claims solicitors for Milton Keynes claims, where we explain what to look for in personal injury solicitors covering Milton Keynes.
Accidents in Milton Keynes can happen at any time and fortunately, in most cases, they are fairly minor with no long-lasting effects for the victim. Sometimes, however, accidents can be more serious causing the victim to suffer a greater injury which can have many negative implications on their life ranging from a slight temporary disability, for example, to complete life-changing injuries and even death. Although accidents can happen without reason where no-one is to blame, there are instances where accidents are caused by some form of negligence and could have been prevented. When this is the case, the victim may be eligible to file a claim for compensation to support them through their recovery.
Compensation claims can be complicated particularly for those who have no legal expertise and so using an accident claims solicitor covering Milton Keynes can be a great help and potentially advantageous in winning the maximum amount of compensation possible for your case. If you have suffered an injury due to someone else’s mistake or negligence and would like to find out more about the no win no fee accident claims process, please contact us at Accident Claims UK and we will be happy to assist.

Making a claim if you have suffered because of someone else’s mistake or incompetence can help to provide financial support whilst you recover from your injury. For many people, this is an invaluable relief from the stress and worry of loss of earnings if you are unable to work because of your injury. Also, if you have incurred extra costs directly due to being injured, the compensation could cover these as well. If any on-going medical treatments are needed, home or car alterations or other future expenses, or you are unable to return to work at all, these will all be considered when finalising the settlement amount.

Employers have a duty of care to ensure that the working environment is as safe as possible for their employees. This means that they need to follow the rules and regulations as set out in the Health and Safety Act 1974. It requires them to make regular risk assessments and address any issues, makes sure all machinery and equipment is serviced on a regular basis to ensure fit for use, provide personal protective equipment and clothing where necessary, and so on. If they breach their health and safety responsibilities and it results in work accidents occurring, then they could be held liable and sued for accident compensation by the injured party.

Slip, trip and fall accidents are common accidents that could occur anywhere and at any time as a result of third party negligence. They could happen whilst at work, walking along a pavement, even whilst dining in a restaurant for example, but no matter where they happen if it was caused by the negligence of someone else who owed you a duty of care and caused you to become avoidably injured, an accident claim may be made.
As with all claims for compensation, liability has to be proven in order to have a successful outcome. It must be proven that a third party who owed you a duty of care who was responsible for your safety allowed the accident to happen which subsequently caused your injuries.

A ‘public place’ represents basically anywhere the public can go such as parks, beaches, shopping centres, car parks, public toilets, and many more places. If a member of the public has an accident caused by the negligence of those responsible for the public space such as the local authority for example, then they may be eligible to file a claim for compensation. The most common type of non road accident that we tend to come across in a public setting, is a slip, trip or fall such as tripping over broken or uneven paving slabs on the pavement. Numerous injuries can result from an accident in a public place which can have an effect on the victim’s lifestyle and well-being. The accident claims process can be complex sometimes especially if liability isn’t as obvious and so having a personal injury solicitor can be a great help.
