If you’ve been affected by an accident – whether it’s at work, on the road, in a shop or anywhere else for that matter – the last thing you may feel you want to do is get involved in the legal process. At Woodgrange Solicitors, our goal is to enable you to secure compensation for an injury that wasn’t your fault in the calmest, easiest way possible.
We appreciate that often when clients come to see us for help, it’s during one of the most stressful and traumatic times of their lives. Considering legal action can be daunting enough, but when you add in an injury (a time when people want to focus solely on recuperating), this can be especially nerve-wracking. This is why we do everything possible to ease your burden and guide you through the process smoothly. You will be appointed one solicitor who will remain with you throughout your case – they will be your single point of contact; on the end of the phone whenever you need them. They will explain every step of your case clearly, without any legal jargon, and ensure you know exactly what to expect at each stage of the process.
We also believe in total transparency, and will provide you with a clear idea of any costs right from the start.
Our approach is truly personal. We realise that every client’s injury (and the story behind it) is unique, and your solicitor will take the time to get to know you, discuss your injury and understand how it has impacted on your life. We will do our best to make sure that you are properly compensated and able to start looking ahead to the future.
These are just some of the areas our specialist team can help you with:
Road Traffic Accident Claims
Whether you’ve been injured as a passenger, driver, cyclist, motorcyclist or pedestrian, we can help secure the compensation you deserve. From whiplash claims through to more severe injuries, our team has extensive experience of dealing with all manner of road traffic incidents.
Accident at Work Claims
The types of injuries sustained at work are extremely varied, both in nature and seriousness. It’s not just workplaces that are perceived to be ‘dangerous’ where injuries can occur (such as factories) – accidents can happen in even the most unassuming office as a result of trips and slips, loose wiring and unstable shelving.
Medical Negligence Claims
These are often among the most complex types of claims and require a solicitor who is highly experienced at handling such cases. At Woodgrange Solicitors, we have a dedicated team of Medical Negligence solicitors, each of whom has the expertise and sensitivity required to progress cases where clients have been injured due to the negligence of a medical professional.
Even though you may have been injured while abroad, this doesn’t prevent you from making a personal injury claim. From winter sports injuries, poolside incidents and accidents on excursion, through to food poisoning and fatal injuries, we can help secure compensation on your behalf.
Repetitive Strain Injury Claims
This type of injury is commonly caused by carrying out repetitive tasks on a daily basis and is associated with certain types of jobs, such as checkout assistant roles, secretarial roles, hairdressing, factory work etc. Your employer has a duty of care to ensure that proper health and safety measures are put in place to help minimize such injuries.
Slips and Trips Claims
Whether it’s a slip in a supermarket or a trip over an uneven paving stone the street, the repercussions of a fall can be serious. Injuries can result in broken bones and even head and brain injuries.
Serious Injury Claims
A serious injury – resulting in amputation, blindness, spinal cord damage and other life-altering conditions – can have a profound impact on both the victim and their family. It impacts on everything from healthcare and employment, right through to small day-to-day tasks. Our team strives to help make life as comfortable as possible for those affected by these types of injuries.
Fatal Accident Claims
Losing a loved one in a fatal accident is one of the most traumatic things someone can go through. Our specialised team has the sensitivity to guide you through this distressing time and to help ensure you don’t suffer financially as the result of a fatal accident that was someone else’s fault.
If you or a loved one have sustained an injury that was someone else’s fault, give one of our personal injury solicitors a call on 020 8534 2400 and they will be happy to help.
