Personal injury claims extend beyond slips and trips, says Lees Solicitors
A leading personal injury specialist says that many of the incidents that end up in court go beyond the trips, falls and dodgy ladders people associate with the sector.
According to the firm, they have processed successful claims for victims of road traffic accidents, workplace accidents, industrial disease, fatal accidents and holiday accidents. Lees says the danger of assuming that claims are only made for less high-profile incidents is that people who are just as worthy of seeking compensation don't know where to turn to.
A spokesperson for Lees said: "There have been a number of TV commercials and newspaper reports that highlight the personal injury sector as one where people slip on wet floors or get given the wrong ladder. In reality, there are a much broader range of accidents and incidents that cause serious injuries that, with the right legal support, could help people to receive the compensation they deserve.
"As a personal injury specialist, we have processed claims for people who have been injured at work, in car and motorcycle accidents and even overseas on package holidays. We've also helped people suffering from industrial diseases, such as mesothelioma and occupational deafness, as well as placing claims for families who have lost a loved one due to an accident or illness."
Lees has a wealth of experience in personal injury claims and is committed to putting their clients first throughout the claim process. They work to understand the specific needs of the individual involved and ensure they are properly compensated for what has happened to them.
"An incident such as those mentioned here can have far-reaching implications for the people involved," a Lees spokesperson said. "Regardless of the severity of the accident, they may be left out of pocket financially.. Some may be left unable to carry out specific tasks and therefore unable to work. They may require physiotherapy to help them get back on their feet. The compensation they receive can make a big difference in helping them and their loved ones to cope."
A recent claim managed by the team at Lees for a woman who was injured in an accident with a mobility scooter resulted in a £7,500 settlement, even though the defendant's initial offer was for less than half that amount.
