If your child has been involved in an accident which wasn’t their fault, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation. Whether it was a road traffic accident, or a fall in a playground, the personal injury solicitors at O’Neilll Morgan will be able to advise you.

Children can find it difficult to talk about their accident. At O’Neilll Morgan, we have personal injury solicitors who are highly skilled in dealing with children and will support them and their parents throughout the claiming process.

The time limits for making a personal injury claim for children are different. If a child is under 18 when injured, then they have until their 21st birthday to bring a claim. This is because the implications of a child’s injuries may not be immediately obvious.

It won’t cost you a penny to bring a claim. We work on a no win no fee basis this means that you don’t pay us a penny and unlike many other solicitors we won’t take a penny out of the child’s damages if you win.

The Health and Safety Executive have said that work-related stress is widespread in the UK working population and is not confined to sectors, jobs or industries.

Well organised and managed work helps to maintain and promote individual health and wellbeing. However, when a firm pays insufficient attention to job design, work organisation and management, the benefits and assets associated with ‘good work’ can be lost. This lack of attention can lead to employees suffering from work-related stress.

If you have suffered a debilitating mental or physical injury as a direct result of work-related stress, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. The solicitors at O’Neilll Morgan have significant experience of dealing with stress-related compensation claims.

It won’t cost you a penny to bring a claim. We work on a no win, no fee basis. This compensation can then be put towards household bills and medical fees incurred during a period spent out of work.

If you have been involved in a bicycle accident that wasn’t your fault, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries and the damage to your bike, and it won’t cost you a penny if you lose the case.

Motorists have their insurance company to support them following an accident, but cyclists are left to fend for themselves. The solicitors at O’Neilll Morgan have significant experience of winning compensation claims brought by cyclists.

Where a motorist is at fault, we will pursue them through their insurance company. If you are injured by a vehicle that leaves the scene of the accident, or the driver is uninsured, we will pursue your claim with the Motor Insurers’ Bureau. If your accident is caused by the road being in poor condition, we will follow up your compensation claim with the Local Authority.

If you have had a cycling accident it is important that you report it to the police as quickly as possible, and if you are injured visit your GP or local hospital; by doing this, you ensure that your accident and injuries are officially recorded, which will help your compensation claim.

The claim won’t cost you a penny if you lose the case because we work on a no win, no fee basis

If someone close to you has died in an accident, you probably haven’t considered making a compensation claim. However, you may stand to suffer both a financial as well as an emotional loss, especially if it is the main breadwinner who has died.

If the fatal accident was caused by someone else’s negligence, you will be able to make a compensation claim. The solicitors at O’Neilll Morgan have extensive experience of making such claims, and can support you through this difficult time, helping to relieve the stress of managing legal and financial matters.

Personal injury compensation given to the family of the deceased is usually in two parts:

Firstly, the victim’s claim – to compensate where the deceased suffered physical and emotional pain, incapacity or distress.

Secondly the dependent’s claim – to compensate the family for loss of financial support.

A fatal accident compensation claim can be brought by the deceased’s husband/wife, ex-husband/ex-wife, co-habitee, children or other dependents.

If you are injured whilst abroad as a result of another individual’s negligence, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Whilst we are a nation of animal lovers, animals can sometimes be unpredictable and out of control. They can cause injury. If you’ve been injured by an animal and its owner did not take reasonable steps to protect you, this may give rise to a claim for compensation.

Dog bite incidents tend to be the most common type, however, there are other possible incidents involving animals, including:

  • Animals that escape from fields and stray onto the road into the path of your vehicle
  • Horse riding accidents
  • Crushing injuries caused by livestock

If you have suffered from injuries caused by an animal, the specialist Solicitors at O’Neilll Morgan can help you win compensation for your injury, trauma and loss of earnings. There is a strict time limit for making claims, so call us now on: 0800 387967 or 0161 429 8383.

We will need as much information as possible about the incident circumstances and evidence concerning, for example, the dog’s behaviour prior to the incident or what method was used by the keeper of a horse to prevent it from getting out of a field.  Another important factor is whether the owner has any insurance or means to pay any compensation should it be awarded.

It won’t cost you a penny to bring a claim. Our accident solicitors operate on a no win, no fee basis. This means that you don’t pay us a penny unless you win and if you do win the very maximum you will pay is 25% of your damages but it is usually far less.
