Personal injury, medical negligence and industrial illness compensation claims
Have you had an accident in the last three years and was it someone else's fault? If your answer is yes to these questions you could have the right to claim.
We act for hundreds of accident victims and people who have been diagnosed with workplace related illnesses across Kent each year, achieving positive outcomes for our clients. For some examples of recent local personal injury cases we have taken on and won see our personal injury client stories page.
Contact us on 01843 220288 for expert advice if you have suffered injury in an accident within the last three years. You could be entitled to claim compensation if you have been:
- Involved in a road traffic accident
- Involved in an accident caused by badly maintained pavements and roads
- Injured at work
- Injured as a result of a trip, slip or fall in a shop, office or other place
- Injured whilst on holiday
- Injured by faulty products or consumer goods
- Injured, or have suffered loss, as a result of the fault of another person in any other circumstances.
We may still be able to help you if your accident was not covered by one of these categories and can also assist with fatal accident compensation claims.
Various forms of costs and funding are available including "no win, no fee". The amount of personal injury compensation awarded varies depending on the seriousness of the injury and the financial losses involved. To see how much your injury could be worth see our compensation calculator page.
For a personal injury claim to succeed we need to show that somebody was at fault for your accident, what injuries or losses you suffered and that whoever was at fault has insurance or other means to pay.
If your health has been affected by your work we may be able to claim compensation for you. Our friendly, local solicitors will aim to get you the maximum amount of compensation to help you tackle your problems. See our industrial illness page for more details of the types of cases we often deal with.
If the treatment or care you received from a medical professional fell below the standard you expected and this resulted in injury or suffering then you may have a claim for medical negligence compensation. For more details see our medical negligence page.
