As detailed above, there is an extensive range of different injuries that can be claimed for when it comes to making a serious injury claim. You can make this type of serious injury compensation claim for injuries suffered in a variety of settings, including:
In a workplace setting
In a public place, such as a sport field or shopping centre

For a successful serious injury compensation claim, your serious injury solicitor must establish the identity of the other party involved and/or who is legally responsible for the accident. You must also show that your injuries were caused as a result of that accident.
In some cases, for example someone tripping over discarded rubbish in a public place, it may not be immediately obvious who is to blame. If you are not certain who caused the accident, it is still worth exploring your case, as you may still be able to make a serious injury claim. Hampson Hughes Solicitors have successfully made slip and trip compensation claims against parties including employers, retailers and local authorities.
In many instances, the responsible party is insured for the injuries caused. We therefore liaise directly with the insurance company who provide cover for the at fault party in order to to reach an agreeable settlement for your serious injury claim.

Kelly claimed £23,000 and changed her life. She started by taking our free 30 second claim test and found out how much compensation she was entitled to.
Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
