Personal Injury Claims In Nottingham 

Using a maximum timeframe of three years post-injury to make your claim, Cute Injury has a panel of experienced solicitors to help win a personal injury claim in Nottingham. They can do this by demonstrating a breach of your duty of care; negligence related to your safety and well-being, in which;

  • A duty of care was owed to you

  • That duty of care was then breached

  • An injury or illness was caused as a result of this breach

Pursuing your claim immediately will allow our injury solicitor s to collate supporting evidence and witness statements.


Finding the best solicitor in Nottingham for your compensation claim

To receive the best award or settlement possible, it is essential that you choose the solicitor who is most suited to you to act on your behalf.

The personal injury solicitors we work with 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 can consist of 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.

Nottingham generates a high number of claims in a range of categories each year and our solicitors, although not limited to just the following, can help you win your claim in each of these categories;


Serious injury

Serious Injury means the person who sustained the injury will have to remain in the hospital for a period greater than 48 hours. Nottinghamshire reported a total of 1390 non-fatal injuries between 2013 and 2016, many of which were serious in nature.

8 fatalities were reported in the workplace for Nottinghamshire during the same time period. A figure which indicates the real risks of workplace environments and the importance of a strong employer duty of care to their employees.

Experiencing a breach of your duty of care, whether it be in the workplace or in a public location that resulted in a personal injury that was not your fault could lead to compensation. Claiming could be vital to help your recovery from the physical, psychological and often financial damage caused by serious injury.


Road Traffic Accidents

Recent research from RoSPA shows that Road Traffic Accidents (RTA) make up 50% of personal injury claims in the UK.

Between 2012 and 2015 there were just under 13,000 reported RTA for Nottinghamshire. Injuries from these reports ranged from slight to fatal.

As one of the leading causes of personal injury, Road Traffic Accidents in Nottingham can be amongst the most damaging but with expert experience from our solicitors, we are confident in negotiating the maximum compensation amount pertaining to your claim.


Clinical and medical negligence

The NHS Litigation Authority reports in their annual statistics that medical negligence claims have been rising year by year since 2010.

Medical negligence, now re-defined as Clinical negligence relates to a breach of the duty of care by your healthcare provider and is grounds for compensation. The solicitors we work with are experienced in this type of injury claim and can offer free advice on further advancing your claims process.


Industrial disease

In Nottinghamshire, lung-related illness, specifically those relating to mesothelioma, accounted for 537 male deaths in the workplace between 1981 and 2015. In England as a whole, well over 1400 cases of respiratory disease were reported by chest physicians between 2013 and 2015.

Industrial disease also related to other medical illnesses such as vibrational white finger, commonly caused in construction roles, asbestos-related illness, musculoskeletal disorders including back pain and general stress and anxiety.

Industry related personal injury claims are common and as such Accident Line Direct have invaluable experience in dealing with claims of this type.
