Manchester personal injury claims 

The solicitors we use are based in Manchester and can help you settle your claim for compensation.

It is necessary for a successful claim that they are made within three years of the injury occurring in most circumstances. Making your claim as soon as possible will enable your solicitor to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements. This evidence will garner support for a claim that incorporates three aspects;

  • You were owed a duty of care (an obligation to your safety and wellbeing)
  • This duty of care was then breached
  • Your resultant injury was directly caused by this breach.


The best solicitor in Manchester for your compensation claim

Our personal injury solicitors aim to secure the maximum compensation by acting on your behalf to assess the value of your claim, negotiate the relevant paperwork and settle a final amount.

Experienced solicitors will decide whether a No Win No Fee agreement is suitable for your claim by collating supporting evidence that will often include the following;

  • Witnesses to the event

  • Identifying the party at fault

  • Local medical examination

Using this information they will decide whether your claim has a reasonable prospect of success.

There is a range of personal injury compensation claims that our solicitors undertake in Manchester which is expressed in the statistics outlined below.


Road Traffic Accidents

Data collected by the local Manchester Police that took place on the public highway and involved some form of personal injury revealed over 5500 casualties in 2014 alone. In addition to these figures, the number of people seriously injured or killed from Road Traffic Accidents rose by 9% from 2013 to 2014 in Greater Manchester.

Road Traffic Accidents pose a real threat to our health and wellbeing. If you were not at fault or even if you were partly at fault for an injury that was caused by a Road Traffic Accident, whether this included being in a vehicle or on the road, then knowledgeable and skilled solicitors are able to guide you through the claims process and secure the compensation that can be vital in aiding your recovery from an injury sustained from a Road Traffic Accident.

Clinical and medical negligence

Medical negligence, now re-defined as Clinical negligence relates to a breach of the duty of care by your healthcare provider and has strong grounds for compensation.

Growing issues within the NHS are impacting on patient care, clearly represented by the figures of the NHS litigation authority which report that over 10,000 clinical negligence claims were filed with the NHS in 2014/15. Private health care can also fall prey to mistakes in patient care, ultimately causing further injury and initiating grounds for compensation.

Clinical negligence is now subject to powerful legislation that entitles people to compensation following a breach of their duty of care. If you have a claim of this nature in Manchester that you would like to discuss with one of the solicitors we work with then Accident Line Direct are on hand to provide you with more information.

Serious Injury

In Greater Manchester, between 2013 and 2016 over 800 serious injury claims were reported in the Labour Force Survey. Lifting and Handling injuries have consistently been the highest in each subsequent year since 2011 for Manchester with assault and falling from a height also large contributors.

Serious injury is greatly impactful to the continuation of work as expressed by workforce data showing an increasing absence of work following the accident. Compensation for your personal injury can help tackle difficulties that arise from an accident that was not your faultThe solicitors we can pair you with can arrange for a medical examination in Manchester and progress your claim to a successful compensation agreement. 

Slips, Trips, and Falls

Slips, Trips, and Falls are close behind Lifting and Handling injuries in terms of quantity and severity. Falling from a height in the construction industry provides the main bulk of personal injury claims relating to Slips, Trips, and Falls but there are many other injury types that Accident Line Direct can help you with.

No Win No Fee agreement

Where possible, our solicitors work on a No Win No Fee agreement so there will be no upfront cost to process your claim. We make sure you do not absorb any of the cost that the solicitors incur in using our service.
