Have you been injured in London due to no fault of your own? You could be entitled to personal injury compensation for any pain and suffering you endured as well as any expenses or lost earnings.

If you feel you have the right to compensation for a certain event, don’t hesitate to contact our personal injury lawyers who cover London and its surrounding areas.

Here, we look at when you can claim for personal injury compensation, the process and how much your claim could be worth. 

Personal Injury Claims in London

In London and Greater London, there were over 8,500 non-fatal injuries resulting in three or more consecutive days’ absence from work during 2015/16 - as reported by local authorities from the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases, and Dangerous Occurrences Regulation (RIDDOR).

As the capital city of the UK, London sees its fair share of incidents, some serious and some not so serious.

Injuries occur every day and in all sorts of situations, so it’s important to know when you can and can’t make a personal injury claim.

Can I Claim Personal Injury Compensation?

You are usually eligible to claim compensation for personal injury if:

  • A party owes you a duty of care

  • They fail in providing that duty of care, neglecting your safety and wellbeing

  • You are injured as a direct consequence of the negligence

If this scenario seems representative of your situation, whether the party who owed you a duty of care was an employer, another driver, a facility manager, the council or anyone else, you should get in touch today to begin the process of claiming personal injury compensation.

Our team of trained solicitors that cover London and the rest of the UK will then assess the claim and determine whether they can take it on under a No Win No Fee agreement.

What Can You Claim Compensation For?

It’s possible to receive personal injury compensation for a variety of injuries or illnesses, such as a broken leg or asbestos-related mesothelioma.

These injuries can occur in an endless amount of situations, including those outlined below.

Road Traffic Accidents and Bicycles: Personal Injury Claims

Between 2010 and 2014, injuries on the road that were classed as serious or fatal amounted to over 13,000 cases in London.

In 2015, for central London only, there were as many as 902 collisions involving pedal bikes; a popular mode of transport for those living in the busy central London boroughs.

Many commuters now opt to cycle to work when possible and over 4.1million claim to cycle at least twice a week in the UK. If you are one of these many cyclists, take care on the roads but keep in mind that our personal injury solicitors cover accidents involving bikes in the London area.

In addition to this, there were well over 200 documented collisions involving a taxi or private hire vehicle just in central London alone and exclusive of London's more geographically extensive areas.

Regardless of your situation, contact us as soon as you can following an incident on the roads, as you only have three years to claim. For any accidents that happens over three years ago, we may still be able to help, so it’s worth giving us a call either way.

What Else Does Personal Injury Cover?

Slips, Trips, and Falls provides the main bulk of personal injury claims but there are many other types of personal injuries.

Data from the Health and Safety Executive for the Westminster local authority of London also list; electric shock injury, falling from a height, being struck by an object, lifting and carrying, and physical attacks as frequent causes for personal injury in the workplace specifically relating to industrial hazards.

If your claim is successful, you could receive a ‘pain and suffering’ pay-out as well as compensation to cover medical expenses and travel expenses that were a direct result of your injury or illness.
