Personal Injury Solicitors
Birstall Myers Solicitors have specialists who deal with different accident types and severity levels. Our team has extensive experience providing support and guidance in what can be very challenging circumstances. Your legal team will work with you and your family to ensure the best possible resolution following your injury.

Types of accident/claims
There are many different types of personal injury claims – including those arising from road traffic accidents, accidents at work or in public places, Asbestos related injuries and accidents abroad; which can result in injuries and in the worst cases loss of life.

Road traffic accidents
Accidents on the road are unfortunately very common. These don’t just involve car accidents, but also accidents involving cyclists, pedestrians and passengers, either in private vehicles or on public transport.

Road traffic accidents can be very distressing regardless of your injuries and potentially result in whiplash, psychological trauma and other health complications. If you have been involved in a road accident our team of lawyers will fight to get you compensation as well as any rehabilitation and support needed.

Accidents at work
Every employer has a duty of care to ensure that staff can work safely. If your employer neglects this duty, it puts you at risk. Accidents at work can cause injuries that leave you unable to work, leading to financial losses. You may have to take time off or pay large bills for medical treatments or physiotherapy. These are all expenses which could be claimed back as part of your personal injury claim if it is proven that your employer failed to provide you with a safe working environment and didn’t take the required steps to prevent your accident from happening. 

Many people worry that claiming against their employer could affect their jobs or working relationships. However, it’s important to remember that you have the right to claim compensation if your employer fails in their duty of care, and that you can’t legally be dismissed for making a claim. Your employer is not likely to be left out of pocket, because all UK employers are required by law to take out employers’ liability insurance policies. If you are successful in your claim, this is where the funds for compensation will come from.

Nevertheless, you may need support while pursuing a claim against an employer, and this is where the expert advice and guidance from Birstall Myers Lawyers can prove invaluable.

Other types of claims As well as road accidents and accidents at work, there are other situations in which a personal injury claim may be appropriate. For example:

* Sports injuries - such as those caused by the dangerous or reckless behaviour of an opponent or the failure of an official such as a referee to properly enforce the rules of the game
* Medical negligence and malpractice claims
* Slips trips and falls
* Military accidents
* Abuse claims
If something has happened and you are not sure whether you can claim compensation, simply contact our team at Birstall Myers Solicitors for expert advice on 0161 637 0520

Can you make an accident claim?

If you have suffered a personal injury, you may be able to claim compensation. The best way to check is to consult a trained solicitor.
Our specialists will assess your case on its merits based on the information you give us and will advise you as to how successful your claim for compensation is likely to be.

As for who can make a personal injury claim, if there has been a breach of statutory duty or someone’s negligence has caused your injury, you’re eligible to bring a claim.
In fatal accident claims, the deceased’s financial dependents or personal representatives can claim for loss of dependency, for example if the family’s sole breadwinner has died.

Time limit to make a personal injury claim?

There are various strict time limits within which you must begin legal action in a personal injury claim. These time limits vary and can depend on the accident circumstances and the nature of your injuries. In some cases, the accident will need to have happened within three years, but each case is different.

Whatever your circumstances or the nature of the accident, it’s important to remember that time is of the essence. You must contact a specialist personal injury solicitor as soon as possible following an accident or injury. If you leave it too long, you could run the risk of weakening your case or not being able to make a claim at all. Not sure how long you have to make your claim? Simply contact Birstall Myers Solicitors for expert advice on 0161 637 0520. Our skilled and experienced personal injury lawyers are on hand to offer reliable advice on which time limits apply to your claim.

What makes a claim successful?

In order for you to get a good resolution to your case, your solicitor must firstly be able to prove that your injuries were inflicted as a result of a particular accident. Secondly, they must be able to make a convincing case that the accident happened as a result of someone else’s negligence.

Evidence such as photographs of the accident scene and the injuries can be used, along with police reports, entries in accident at work logbooks and doctor’s reports. Your solicitor may also gather statements from people who witnessed the accident and saw exactly what happened and who appeared to be at fault.

With all of this evidence, our experienced personal injury lawyers will argue your case and fight to win you compensation. All cases are different however, and solicitors often have defence lawyers and insurance companies to contend with. A win is never guaranteed, but you stand a far better chance with a highly trained solicitor on your team.

Claiming damages

When you make a personal injury claim, you can seek different types of compensation. These are known as general damages and special damages.

What are general damages?

General damages refer to a lump sum that is paid to compensate you for the suffering, pain and loss of amenity you experienced because of your accident. The sum you receive is determined by the court and it is contingent on how big an impact the accident has had on your life in terms of how severe your injuries are and the extent of any disability or symptoms it has caused.

What are special damages?

Special damages reflect any proven past or future costs you may have incurred as a direct result of the accident. They can include things such as medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation, travel expenditure, loss of earnings, vehicle repair bills and the cost of damage to personal belongings.

How Much Personal Injury Compensation Could You Receive.

The consequences of the same injury or illness will vary between individuals. So the amount of compensation you could receive will be personal to you.

Our personal injury solicitors are experienced in accurately valuing claims based on your particular circumstances, to ensure you get the compensation you deserve.

How to start a personal injury claim?

Starting a personal injury claim can be quicker and easier than you may think. To seek compensation, simply contact our personal injury solicitors here at Birstall Myers Solicitors for expert advice on 0161 637 0520

Just tell us where and how the accident happened, including all of the essential details of your injury. Whether it was an accident at work or a car accident, our highly trained solicitors can help you to understand whether or not you have a claim for compensation and guide you through the process.

Criminal Injury Compensation Claims 

Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme.

If you've suffered a criminal injury, then you'll know just how distressing it can be. Whether you've been injured or experienced psychological trauma as a result of a violent crime, our solicitors could help you claim compensation.

Our expert lawyers have helped many clients claim criminal injury compensation after a range of different incidents, often through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA) scheme.

The CICA is a government body that operates a compensation scheme for the victims of violent crime in England, Scotland or Wales. It was set up to help those who have been physically or mentally injured as the victim of criminal violence.

Many people who are meant to be providing support after such a traumatic experience don't look beyond the physical injury caused by an attack or an assault. We understand that the damage caused in these situations goes beyond the physical – often the psychological harm is far longer lasting.

One of the key parts of our service is a focus on rehabilitation, and if your injuries are severe enough we will ensure you receive the compensation you need to access any necessary medical or psychological care or support, both now and in the future.

We may even be able to help you claim criminal compensation if the perpetrator of the attack was never caught, identified or convicted.

Contact Birstall Myers Solicitors to find out more about our services for expert advice on 0161 637 0520., for a free initial consultation with one of our solicitors, and we'll be happy to advise you on your options.

No Win No Fee- No financial risk to you.

Some people who’ve had an accident that wasn’t their fault don’t pursue a claim because they are worried about the costs. This isn’t right, as you shouldn’t be left out of pocket simply trying to seek justice following someone else’s negligence.

At Birstall Myers Solicitors, most of our personal injury claims are funded through a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), which is more commonly known as a No Win No Fee agreement. Crucially, this means there is no financial risk to you. You can pursue your claim in confidence and will only pay a fee if you are successful.*
