According to acts of parliament such as The Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974 or The Occupiers Act of 1957, certain parties owe others a duty of care. This means that they are legally obliged to uphold the health and safety of others. For example, drivers owe other road users a duty of care on the roads, so are obliged to drive safely, and restaurants owe customers a duty of care, so need to ensure they use hygienic practices in their kitchen to avoid contaminating the food.
If you are injured or made ill because of an accident that was not your fault, because a party that owed you a duty of care acted negligently towards you, then that party could be held liable for your injuries. As a result, you can make an accident claim, also known as a personal injury claim for compensation. If you are wanting to make an accident claim we always advise using an accident claims solicitor to assist you.

How Our Accident Claims Solicitors Covering Tipton Could Help You
If you’ve been involved in an accident at work, suffered because of medical negligence, been assaulted or sustained injuries in any type of incident caused by somebody else, you could be eligible to claim compensation. The process of doing so, though, isn’t always easy. For that reason, you may decide to look for accident claims solicitors in Tipton. Alternatively, you might call our free claims advice line. While there will be law firms based locally in Tipton, you might want to consider whether they specialise in injury claims like we do and whether they work on a No Win No Fee basis.
Our team of solicitors have up to 30 years of experience dealing with claims on behalf of clients. We are registered with the Solicitors Regulation Authority so you rest assured that we offer a professional service. To make things more efficient, we deal with claims by phone, over email and online. That means you don’t need to waste time waiting around and travelling to face to face meetings.
If your case is accepted, one of our solicitors will be appointed to it. They’ll get to know you and how your injuries have affected you before they begin the claims process. Then they’ll look for the evidence to try and prove what happened, who was to blame and what injuries were sustained. To help with this, they will arrange a local medical assessment. This is required so that an independent specialist can provide a prognosis and document your injuries.
When the claim is ready, it will be sent to the defendant, their insurer or their legal team. To prevent you from being bombarded with questions (that are often technical and complex), your solicitor will take control of all communication. If the defendant denies liability for either your injuries or the accident, your solicitor will argue your case for you and supply further evidence where needed.
We do like to point out that we won’t just settle a claim because a compensation offer is received. Where we feel a settlement is undervalued, your solicitor will justify why more is needed to try and ensure you receive the highest amount of compensation possible.
