Accidents cause injury to millions of people every year, whether it is in the workplace, at home, on the premises of another business or in the great outdoors. Sometimes nobody is to blame, but if you believe that another person or company is responsible for your accident or injury, you may be able to make a personal injury claim and receive compensation.

Here at Stockport-based Gorvins Solicitors, we have a specialist team of personal injury solicitors who can deal with your accident, arrange recovery treatment, and interim payments and help you to make a claim. Call us on 0333 323 1978 or fill in our online contact form to receive expert, tailored legal advice.

Gorvins Approach to Personal Injury

We like to set ourselves apart from your traditional ‘personal injury lawyers’. Our highly specialised lawyers assess each case on its merits and won’t just run through a rigid set of motions because they have to. Each of our specialists will provide honest legal advice and information on your specific case and inform you of your potential right to claim compensation for an accident that wasn’t your fault.

Like many solicitors who deal with personal injury, we can offer a no-win, no-fee injury compensation agreement, however, Gorvins stand out because we can offer this alongside a personal, well-rounded, highly professional service. Our honed style stems from our experienced team who have successfully dealt with a wide variety of injuries over many years – from whiplash, bone fractures, burns and soft tissue injuries to severe-life changing head or spinal injuries and permanent disability.

Making a personal injury claim may seem a little intimidating to some but our individual-based approach will ease your tension and settle your nerves. We are not a call centre farm and you won’t speak to someone about your case who isn’t qualified to do so.

How do I know if I can make a Personal Injury claim?

There are a few key factors that can help determine whether you have grounds to make a personal injury claim. Some of the most important considerations include:

  • The cause of the accident: In order to make a personal injury claim, you must be able to show that the accident was caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another person or entity.
  • The severity of your injuries: This typically means that your injuries have caused you significant pain and suffering, have required medical treatment, and have caused you to miss work or incur other financial losses.
  • The availability of evidence: In order to prove your claim, you will need to provide evidence to support your allegations. This may include eyewitness statements, medical records, and other documentation.

If you are unsure whether you have grounds to make a personal injury claim, it is always a good idea to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. A lawyer can review the details of your case and provide advice on whether you have a valid claim and how to proceed.

Accidents and personal injuries can occur almost anywhere at any time. Although there isn’t a set list of scenarios where you might be able to claim compensation, there are many areas where accidents are unfortunately a common occurrence. Our specialist personal injury areas include:
