Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have sustained an injury in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to make a personal injury claim. The claim may be made against the insurer of the driver at fault of the other involved vehicle but you will need to show a breach of a duty of care. There are also special provisions for ‘blameless accidents’. To explore your eligibility to make a personal injury claim, contact our expert Personal Injury Lawyers.
Public Liability Claims
A claim for public liability arises if you have suffered an injury on private or public property. Depending on the type of claim you wish to make, you will need to follow the appropriate processes or protocols. To claim, you will need to prove that the accident was caused as a result of a breach of a duty of care owed to you by another person, company or statutory authority.
