Demystifying Public Liability Claims

The Personal Injuries Proceedings Act of 2002 defines accidents, such as, slip and fall, poisoning, plane and boat accidents, faulty products, sporting incidents as well as private property accidents as worthy of public liability claims. The assistance of a compensation personal injury lawyer is essentially vital in case the injuries incurred from these accidents are permanent or on-going.
We define ourselves as no win no fee lawyers who value their clients so much that we would be willing to reduce our legal fees in case they are not satisfied. Our approach to your case would be to evaluate the claim first to project its outcome. We will then inform you whether your mooted public liability claim stands a chance or not after which you choose which path to follow – legally. Throughout your efforts to get injury compensation, our injury claim solicitors will remain objective by updating you on any pros and cons of each legal choice you make.

Factors affecting public liability claims

Our personal injury claim lawyers look at a variety of factors involved in your accident to determine whether it would be more convenient if you pursued the claim by yourself – without the legal backing of a personal injury claims lawyer. One of the issues looked at is whether the injury is on-going or permanent. If the situation is on the contrary, it would be best if you just liaise with your accident insurance company, which should be able to reimburse you the compensation claim for the injury.
Our evaluation also looks at the economic costs of your incapacitation as well as any out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the injury. If the injury is ongoing, our public liability claims lawyers will inquire whether you will incur extra costs in undergoing treatment. Of equal importance is the effect of the injury on the rest of your working life and whether you will be able to continue in the same occupation.
Although often overlooked, it is important to make an audio or visual recording of an accident encountered at a public place. You can also snap close-up pictures and write down the sequence of events while still fresh in your memory. The next step is to see a doctor to investigate, diagnose and record the injury. His input will be vital when pushing the case for a public liability claim.
