Suffering an injury can be incredibly distressing, especially if it is life changing or leaves you with financial concerns. Whether you slip and fall at work, trip on broken pavement, or are involved in a road traffic accident, you could be entitled to compensation.
Whatever the injury, Foys Solicitors can help. We have an expert team of personal injury solicitors who understand the ins and outs of the law and can help you get the compensation you deserve. We work on a no win, no fee basis, which means that if your case is unsuccessful for any reason, you won’t be liable to pay any costs.
At Foys, we believe that everyone should be entitled to excellent representation following an accident. We acknowledge that every case is different and we work hard to ensure that all your concerns are addressed and that you feel comfortable throughout the claims process. We are honest and it’s important to us that your interests are put first at all times. With years of experience under our belts, you can rest easy knowing that we are solicitors who deeply care about you and the outcome of your case.
The areas of personal injury covered include:
- Road traffic accidents
If you’ve been involved in a road traffic accident, you can be left with serious injuries that require excessive medical treatment and rehabilitation. As well as dealing with physical injuries, you may also have to deal with mental issues, particularly if the accident involved a death. Whatever circumstances you find yourself in following a road traffic accident, Foys can be there to help you get back on your feet with the compensation you deserve.
- Accidents at work
Having an accident at work can be frightening and if the accident is especially severe, it can mean that you may be unable to work for some time. Therefore, working with expert personal injury solicitors is a necessity in order to get the compensation you need to continue with your day-to-day life. Foys can provide professional and useful legal advice to help you with your case.
- Slips and trips
General slips and trips can occur almost anywhere; at the supermarket, on the street, or even in a public building. If you’ve been injured in this way, Foys Solicitors can help you identify if you can make a personal injury claim, who is responsible for your injury and how you can go about establishing the claim.
- Serious injuries and fatal accidents
At Foys, we recognise that some accidents are more serious than others. Being involved in a catastrophic accident could result in long-term medical care, permanent disability or even death, which could all mean that you may not be able to go back to work and you may need specialised treatment. If this is the case, we know how important it is to get you appropriate compensation.
- Neglect and abuse claims
Talking about neglect and abuse can be hard, but it’s important to realise that you could be entitled to compensation. At Foys, we realise that no amount of money can ever justify what happened to you, but we can help you move forward with your life. We are dedicated to your case and offer a confidential and specialised service.
- Criminal injuries claims
Victims of violent crime are often unsure of where to turn and may not even realise that they can make a personal injury claim. Cases of violent crime can be incredibly personal and painful to talk about. At Foys, we understand that this can be difficult and so we ensure that our services are confidential so that you can get the assistance you need from solicitors you can trust.
- Injuries caused by faulty goods
Did you know that if a newly bought product is faulty and causes you an injury, you could claim compensation? Whether you’ve eaten contaminated food, had a severe allergic reaction to a new beauty product, or suffered burns from an exploding iron, Foys can assess your case and help you get the compensation you’re entitled to.
What is the personal injury claims process?
After suffering an accident, however serious, it’s important to think about whether or not you’d like to make a claim. If you have decided that you would like to follow through with making a personal injury claim, you then need to work out if your claim has a good chance of being successful. The easiest way to do this is by contacting Foys Solicitors directly. By explaining your case to us, we can help to determine if it is worth proceeding with or not. We offer a free initial consultation where we can discuss your accident and advise you on the best way to move forward.
Typically, the next step in establishing a claim is to ensure that all the necessary paperwork is in order. This means that you should have a medical report outlining your injuries and projected recovery time, as well as proof of loss of earnings and proof of extra expenses (such as medication, prescription or physiotherapy costs).
By looking at your medical report, we can approximately determine the value of your claim and work with you to negotiate a settlement with the offending party. In some cases, negotiations can be quite difficult, as the defendant may not accept responsibility for your accident and will be unwilling to pay out. If this occurs, the next step would be to go to court and have a judge decide on a fair settlement. No matter how long it takes, we are prepared to fight for your case because we know how difficult it is to bounce back after an accident and we believe that you deserve justice.
Selecting Foys as your personal injury solicitors, you can expect that we will be with you throughout the entire process of your claim. We will ensure that you are properly informed every step of the way and that you have the support you need to make appropriate decisions. We have amassed years of experience in dealing with personal injury claims, allowing you to feel confident knowing that we will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
