Expert Personal Injury Lawyers
Clifford Johnston & Co's team of experienced personal injury solicitors provide a bespoke, personalised service to people who have been injured in accidents and as a result of clinical negligence.
We aim to make the process of making a claim as straightforward as possible.
Our personal injury solicitors handle all types of accident claims from simple whiplash claims to accident claims where clients have suffered life changing injuries.
The areas and types of claims we can help with include:
Accidents at Work
Accidents in the workplace are all too common and it can be difficult for the sufferer to know how to deal with them. However, in certain circumstances someone who has suffered an accident at work may be entitled to compensation for injuries suffered. Our personal injury solicitors assist with seeking compensation for accidents caused by a breach of health and safety procedure, where faulty workplace equipment made injuries worse or where a workplace accident worsened an existing illness or condition.
Criminal Injury Compensation Claims
If you have been the victim of a violent crime, you may be entitled to compensation through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA). This is a government-run scheme that seeks to provide compensation for those who have suffered physical or mental injuries as a result of crime. Although it is not necessary to have legal advice in order to be able to claim from the CICA, its process can be complicated. Our team of specialised solicitors have extensive experience in gathering the evidence necessary to bring a successful claim, submitting the claim, and in challenging decisions made by CICA.
Cycling Accident Claims
If you have been involved in a cycling accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries and for any necessary rehabilitation. If your injuries are due to the actions or inactions of another road user, our qualified personal injury solicitors will help you gather information to support your claim. We will then encourage an early admission of liability from the party responsible and ask them or their insurers to agree compensation. Wherever possible, we seek to settle cycling accident claims out of court. However, if necessary, we will support you to take your claim to court and achieve satisfactory resolution. In the same way, we can also assist with claims following an accident caused by inadequately-maintained roads or cycle paths, or as a consequence of a hit-and-run where the driver remains unidentified.
Motorcycling accidents may entitle you to compensation for injuries suffered and for any required rehabilitation. Where possible, our team of personal injury solicitors seek to encourage the early, out of court settlement of such claims. With this in mind, we will help gather information to support your claim and identify the party responsible for your injuries. We will then encourage an early admission of liability from the party responsible and ask them or their insurers to agree compensation.
Our team of highly qualified personal injury solicitors assist clients in claiming compensation in the very difficult circumstances that follow the loss of a loved one in a fatal accident, whether as a result of a road traffic accident, an accident at work, a medical accident, an accident abroad or some other situation. As well as guiding you through the legal process for seeking compensation, we will also advise you on your possible entitlement to the Statutory Bereavement Award, Widowed Parent’s Allowance, and Bereavement Allowance. We can also signpost services that provide emotional and counselling support. Our experience also extends to dealing with the Coroner’s Office, which investigates violent or unexplained deaths.
Road Traffic Accident (RTA) Claims
The time following a car accidents or other forms of road traffic accident (RTA) can be difficult as you convalesce from your injuries, while perhaps also suffering adverse financial repercussions. However, involvement in a RTA may entitle you to compensation and wherever possible our team of expert personal injury solicitors will seek to avoid you having to go to court to achieve this. We will help you gather information to work out who is responsible for any injuries you suffered. We will then encourage an early admission of liability from the party responsible and ask them or their insurers to agree compensation. This can include compensation towards rehabilitation costs. Our track record includes assisting clients in obtaining compensation for a variety of injuries, including whiplash, soft tissue injury, broken bones and fractures, organ damage, sensory loss or damage, and loss of limbs.
