Personal Injury

Accidents at Work

If you, or a member of your family, have suffered any kind of injury at work, you’ll want to get the right advice from skilled professionals quickly. With an abundance of ‘TV’ ads boasting expertise in this complex field, we would urge you to consider the benefits of face to face contact with a local solicitor who has specialist knowledge and extensive experience in this area of Law.

Together, we can look at the circumstances of your particular case to ensure you receive appropriate medical attention and, if needed, rehabilitation support. We will also help you claim financial compensation for your suffering and any losses you’ve incurred as a result of being unable to work. Help is just a phone call away.

Product Liability

As consumers we all have a right to expect the products we buy to live up to manufacturers promises, whilst manufacturers have a duty to ensure the products they sell are safe for us to use. If you’ve been injured by a defective product it's very important to get good legal advice at the earliest opportunity.

At Robinsons, we have specialist solicitors who can guide you through the process of making a claim for your injury and any suffering you’ve been caused. Acting early can also alert the company who may recall the product to avoid injury to another consumer. Call today for an appointment with one of our friendly solicitors who can advise you on the best way forward for your particular case.

Public Liability

All local authorities, companies and organisations that allow us onto their land have a responsibility and a legal requirement to ensure that we are safe and protected from harm. Should an accident occur, we have the right to be compensated for any injury caused and this is where Robinsons can help.

All land that can be accessed by the public needs to be covered by Public Liability Insurance but in order to make a successful claim against this type of policy it’s crucial that the details of your accident are recorded accurately and quickly.

As soon as possible after the incident has occurred, you should contact us for an informal chat during which we can advise you on the important steps you need to take to ensure any claim for compensation is supported with the right information.

Trips & Falls

Regardless of where we happen to be, if it's public property we have a right to be protected against trips, slips and falls. This applies to shops, pavements, roads and car parks all of which should have Public Liability Insurance in place. As with any Public Liability Claim it is crucial that the details of the incident are recorded accurately and quickly and it may be necessary for the site to be visited whilst the hazard is still visible.

We can then decide how best to support you going forward and explore any requirements you might have for physiotherapy and rehabilitation to get you back on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

Road Traffic Accidents

There are few things in life as traumatic as being the innocent victim of a road traffic accident whether as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian. Where the accident has led to personal injury we understand your main concern will be getting the most appropriate medical attention to ensure your recovery is as speedy as possible.

We can advise on making a claim for compensation to cover all your medical expenses and any suffering you may have endured. We can also consider making a claim for interim damages if the accident has led to immediate financial hardship if, for example, you find you’re unable to work. Our friendly Personal Injury specialists will guide you through the process and will work on your behalf until your claim has been settled in full.

Victims of Crime

If you’ve suffered an injury as a result of being a victim of crime, you may feel overwhelmed at the prospect of discussing the incident with a solicitor. At Robinsons, we have specially trained solicitors who’ll work with you, at your pace, to ensure you feel comfortable and at ease at all times.

We can help you make a claim for compensation through the Government’s Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) which will also take into consideration the psychological impact the event has had on your life. Local knowledge enables us to put you in touch with support groups who can help you move towards a full recovery with confidence.

Animal Attack Claims

Although dogs are often considered to be man’s best friend, sadly this isn’t always the case. Being on the receiving end of a dog bite can be an extremely traumatic experience not just physically but also psychologically. If you’ve been injured by any animal either directly or as a result of the animal not being under the control of its owner, we can help you make a claim for compensation.

All animal owners have a responsibility to ensure their pets or livestock are kept from causing harm to the general public and should carry adequate insurance that will cover them against this type of claim. If the owner doesn’t have appropriate insurance you may still be able to make a claim against them personally.

Other Accidents

If you’ve suffered an injury that doesn’t fall into any of the categories mentioned above, don’t worry. This list is not exhaustive and we realise that some accidents may involve more than one category or perhaps be quite unique. Whatever the circumstances, we can advise on the actions you need to take and whether a claim for compensation is likely to be successful.

Funding your claim

There may be various funding options to pursue your claim. You may have Legal Expenses Insurance as part of your household insurance policy or your case may be suitable for a Conditional Fee Agreement (no win no fee). No win no fee agreements are particularly suitable for Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence claims and we can usually secure insurance to pay the opponents costs in the event of an unsuccessful claim. We will advise you on your most appropriate funding option at the outset.
