New year, time to act ..

Employment solicitors, Stoke, Bolton, ManchesterThe new year tends to bring good intentions, new beginnings, and exciting plans for the year ahead. We have had time to reflect over the festive period and the time away from our everyday life can provide us with the opportunity to look at things differently and have more energy to tackle projects.

Unfortunately, during the previous year some people have experienced incidents or have been a victim of a certain event. They may have wished to seek advice at the time but did not follow it up for whatever reason. They may have been putting off contacting a lawyer due to fear of the unknown, may have been unsure they had a case which was worth pursuing, or they simply may not have had time to seek legal advice? If this is sounding familiar and if you have experienced something which is still outstanding and which we can use our legal experience to help with, please do not hesitate to get in touch. We are happy to discuss your options, provide you with an initial analysis of your case and confirm our view on your prospects of success. We find this initial analysis invaluable, so you are fully informed of the ‘bigger picture’ going forward and are not unduly wasting costs.

Our team of employment solicitors represent clients across a range of areas from personal injury work to credit hire law; Commercial and civil litigation; from employment to medical law disputes; and from clinical negligence to immigration law.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Stay safe on the roads this winter

road traffic accidents manchesterThe roads can be perilous at this time of year. The unpredictability of weather conditions, the increased traffic, as many see the holiday period as an opportunity to catch up with friends and family, not to mention increased shopping expeditions and office/xmas parties, can all contribute to a higher incidence of road traffic accidents.

Statistically the highest number of road traffic accidents happen in August according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and are in decline so do not feel you cannot leave the house for fear of an accident. Unfortunately accidents do happen and can have a major impact on the victims life.

If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, which was not your fault you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.

If you are a pedestrian, a motorcyclist, a pedal cyclist or a driver, your personal injury claim would be made against the insurance company of the person driving the vehicle; which collided with you.

If you are a passenger in a car, van, bus, or coach; which is involved in a collision, your personal injury compensation claim would be made against the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident, whether that is the driver of the vehicle you were travelling in or a third-party driver (or both if necessary).

Our experienced Personal Injury team have earned a reputation of successfully settling road traffic accident claims for injury as a result of a road traffic accident. These have ranged from representing clients with whiplash type injuries to the most serious and long-term injuries.

For more information please contact Lexadeen Solicitors to discuss whether you have an entitlement to a claim following a road traffic accident.
