Injuries caused by the deliberate or negligent acts of a person or corporate body or as a result of a breach of a statutory duty, for example, employers’ liability, normally give rise to a claim for damages. The amount of those damages of course will vary depending upon the severity of the injuries, the actual financial losses sustained such as loss of earnings, and the degree of impairment of future earning capacity.
We can advise you as to whether your injuries are likely to give rise to a claim and if so the merits and possible value of that claim. Negotiations can then be commenced (usually with an insurance company) to achieve a satisfactory settlement. If this is not possible we can commence proceedings on your behalf which may ultimately result in the matter being decided by a Court.
