Making Life Easier Following an RTA


Posted by admin on October 31, 2011 at 2:26 pm. Filed under: Road Accident Claims

If you have been in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, the last thing you want is to be paying out even more in order to see that justice is done. The personal cost that you have suffered and may continue to suffer as a result of the accident is more than enough. Here at Fosters Solicitors, we don’t believe that any road accident claims should ever cost you a penny.

We provide a complete service to help you with your car accident compensation that takes into account much more than simply winning an amount of money in a claim against the other party. Following your accident, we will help to organise getting your vehicle repaired, by liaising between the two insurance companies of both parties involved. We have our own network of warranty approved repairers available for you to choose from, but we are equally happy for you to nominate your own preferred garage to carry out the work needed to repair your vehicle.

While waiting to get your back from the garage, or to be able to get a new car in the case of a write off, we will organise a like for like car for you. We understand the inconvenience that suddenly finding yourself without your car can cause, and so we will immediately organise for a hire car to be delivered to you, and then collected again once you have your own car back, with all costs recovered from the other party’s insurance.

 

Don’t Suffer in Silence

Road traffic accidents can incur numerous and varied injuries, from whiplash to bruises to paralysis. Some of these injuries may worsen over time or become a recurring problem in your life and can cause you a great deal of personal and financial expense. You may end up having to take a lot of time off work, leading to loss of earnings, or could end up needing to buy specific medical equipment to lessen your symptoms. If the accident wasn’t your fault, why should you end up seriously out of pocket, as well as having to deal with the pain and inconvenience (or worse) the accident has caused?

Personal injury lawyers, such as us, specialise in ensuring you get compensation for any road accident claims that you may have which are not your fault. We know that you last thing you need when you are in pain is a complicated and drawn out lengthy legal battle, so we make everything as simple and efficient as possible. If you have been advised that you need physiotherapy or other medical treatment, we will organise this for you so that you can get back on the road to recovery as soon as possible.

If you have already incurred medical costs as a result of your injury, we will help you to get the whiplash compensation (or for any other injury) you are entitled to. Even if you were not the driver of the vehicle, you can still claim for any injuries suffered.

 

Getting Over an Accident at Work

Every employer has a legal responsibility to ensure that you remain safe while at work. This includes while you are in your normal place of work, or in any location where you have been sent to carry out a work duty. If there is a potential hazard in the workplace, it is your employer’s duty to inform you of this. As specialist personal injury solicitors, we know how much an accident at work can affect you. As well as the pain caused by any injuries suffered, accidents which are not your fault can lead to loss of earnings through time off work, and also a disillusionment towards your workplace, employer and/or colleagues. You may feel hesitant to launch an accident at work claim because of the personal relationship you have to your company or employer, however it is your legal entitlement. Not only will the work accident compensation you receive help to cover any medical expenses or loss of earnings you have suffered, but it will also help your employer to use safer working practices in the future and prevent the same thing from happening to someone else.

If you are not sure that you might be entitled to make a claim for the work accident you have suffered, we offer free legal advice in an accident claim consultation. We will give you friendly and easy to understand advice over whether you have a claim and what compensation you might expect to receive, of which 100% is guaranteed to go straight to you.

 

Facing up to Your Employer in the Event of an Accident at Work


Posted by admin on October 10, 2011 at 2:17 pm. Filed under: Accident at Work

An accident at work which is not your fault can leave you feeling vulnerable and confused. Unlike the hundreds of road traffic accident claims which are carried out every year, many people are reticent to make a claim against their employer, even though they have the same legal entitlement to do so. This reticence in making accident at work claims stems from the fact that you know your employer, and perhaps know them well. They are not the anonymous face of an unknown driver who has ploughed into the back of you, but someone you see every day and they have let you down. However, this is no reason for you to suffer personally, physically and financially because of their negligence.

As your personal injury lawyers, we will be there to support you through this difficult and confusing process and make sure that you get what you are entitled to. As well as any compensation due to you, of which you will always get 100%, we will also help to arrange any necessary medical care for you, such as physiotherapy. Again, this will never cost you a penny, as all costs will be claimed from the other party’s insurance provider.

Particularly if you work for a large company, where the senior management team is not directly responsible for the putting into practice of working regulations, they might actually be glad of the fact that their indirect negligence has been highlighted, as it can help them to tighten health and safety and prevent future accidents.

 

Free Expert Legal Advice Following an Accident

Slips, trips and falls occur every day in every location. Some are caused by not looking where you are going or other acts of your own carelessness or bad luck, but others are the result of someone else’s negligence and can potentially lead to a successful personal injury compensation claim. Knowing whether you have a substantial claim and establishing who is to blame can sometimes be difficult, and so we provide free legal consultations to advise you on whether to proceed with your claim or not. Because some injuries as well as the slip or trip itself can be sometimes hard to prove, many people have pursued compensation claims where they did not have any right to do so. This has led to some changes in legislation and guidelines in order to protect councils and businesses from bogus claims. As expert personal injury lawyers, we can advise you on the best course of action for your claim.

Where we think your claim has a chance of succeeding, we will make the process as simple and uncomplicated for you as possible. Where you need medical treatment as a result of your injury, we will organise this for you and reclaim any costs from the business or relevant body responsible. Our fees are also claimed from their insurers, and so everything you win as compensation will all go straight to you because we believe that anyone who suffers injuries as a result of an accident was not their fault should get the justice they deserve.
