PERSONAL INJURY SOLICITORS

FAULTY PRODUCT CLAIMS
Injuries as a result of faulty products are common, though difficult to prove. Through the use of independent specialist reports, your account of events and the faulty product itself, our team of solicitors can assist you in establishing your claim and obtaining maximum compensation for the injuries and losses you sustained.
No Fee - Win or Lose
So confident in our abilities to win you compensation for your personal injuries that, if we jointly agree to pursue your case on a conditional fee agreement, we only charge costs if we win your case; and even then our costs are claimed from the party at fault (against whom you are claiming). This means that whether your claim is successful or not, you will never have to pay us a penny.
Simple claims procedure
To ensure that our clients spend more time living their lives than dealing with complicated compensation claims procedures, we have created a process through which our personal injury lawyers do the majority of work. This means that in most cases, making a claim for compensation will be as simple as contacting us with your claim details, signing and returning some documents, and attending a medical assessment in your local area which we will arrange. You will not even be required to visit our offices.

Accident due to a Faulty Product



Each year, thousands of people in the UK are injured as a result of defective or faulty products.
Whether it was a chair collapsing while you were sitting on it, an electrical shock or burn due to a defective electrical appliance or injury as a result of faulty gym equipment - the accidents and injuries as a result are very extensive and diverse.
Under the Consumer Protection Act 1987, the manufacturer (or importer) of the product is liable; or if the retailer cannot tell you who the manufacturer or importer is, then they themselves are liable for the personal injury and damage to property caused as a consequence of the products defect.
This means that if you have been injured due to a faulty or defective product that you purchased within the last 10 years, then you may be able to claim compensation. In order to do this, it must be proven that the product was defective and less safe than you could have reasonably expected (not just that it was of poor quality) and that this was the reason that it caused your injury.
The reaction to injuries caused by faulty products can be sceptical, so it is very important to point out the exact defect of the product and note down exactly what happened. Burney Legal can arrange for independent expert confirmation to show that the damage was caused by the product being defective.
So, if you were injured due to a defective product and the injury was not your fault (i.e. you did not misuse the product), then we may be able to help you win compensation.

Medical Negligence Claims


We all generally regard doctors, nurses and medical practitioners as providing excellent, caring services to us, their patients. Nevertheless, there are times when we feel that the person we placed our trust in may have let us down – causing an injury to us or to a loved one.
In such a case, we are at the very least entitled to an explanation; and a treating doctor is required by the General Medical Council (their governing body) to inform a patient when a treatment has gone wrong.
Where it becomes clear that an injury (or death) was caused or contributed to by the breach of the duty of care while in the course of clinical or medical services (including dental or nursing services), then you, a dependent or family member may be entitled to financial compensation for what is termed as medical negligence (also known as clinical negligence).
If the medical treatment you received was private, in that you paid the doctor either yourself or through your medical insurer, and the treatment was substandard, then you may also be entitled to claim for breach of contract.
Claims for clinical negligence often arise out of, for example, accident and emergency, anaesthetics, cancel treatment, cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, gastroenterology, general practice, keyhole surgery, mental health, neurosurgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, oncology, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, paediatrics, plastic surgery, psychiatry, radiology, sterilisation, urology, vascular surgery and others.
Doctors have been found to be in breach of care to patients for reasons such as failed or delayed diagnosis, failure to warn patients of the risks of a treatment, failure to obtain proper consent for treatment, medication errors, careless surgical procedures, delayed referral to specialists, amongst others. Negligence can also arise out of system errors in hospitals where the treatment took place.
Most cases for medical negligence involve medical practitioners (i.e. doctors and surgeons); however, similar cases can also be brought against dentists, midwives, nurses, physiotherapists, psychologists and psychiatrists.
New issues are constantly arising, for example, the retention of organs and tissues after post-mortems, the use of unsterilized instruments, early failure of replacement hips, misinterpreted breast screening and liability for infections acquired in hospitals.
Claims against medical professionals for injuries arising out of clinical negligence can be a difficult task. You need proof in the form of qualified medical experts to prove that it was very probable that there were serious errors in your medical treatment which no competent doctor would have made; and that those errors caused or contributed to the injury you are claiming for.
Burney Legal can get you access to such medical experts. If you believe that you, a dependant, or a deceased family member has been the victim of medical negligence, then speak to one of our claims specialists today. Alternatively, fill in our online form and one of our staff will respond to you within 24 hours.

Public Transport Accidents

If you have been injured due to an accident on a bus, sustained injuries on the train or suffered injuries due to an accident on any other forms of public transport, then you may be able to claim personal injury compensation.
Public transport carriers such as airplanes, buses, coaches, taxis and trains have a duty of care to all passengers they carry. If a passenger is injured while in their ‘care’ due to no fault of his/her own (or only partial fault), then that passenger could be entitled to compensation.
If you have been injured due to an accident involving a carrier, such as hurting yourself when a bus or train broke hard, or being injured due to defective equipment on coaches or airplanes, or even suffered food poisoning on a cruise ship, you could be entitled to personal injury compensation.
If the accident occurred in England or Wales within the last 3 years, then we can help you win personal injury compensation (typical settlements fall between £2,000 to £10,000) and to recover any other loses you incurred (including loss of enjoyment of a holiday) or are likely to incur in the future (e.g. inability to perform certain tasks).
Our highly skilled personal injury lawyers will claim the maximum amount of compensation you deserve; and we can do this for absolutely no cost to you regardless of whether your claim is successful or not. All our costs will be recovered from the company at fault (via their insurers).

Public Place Accidents

Accidents in a public place include all privately and publically owned places such as restaurants, pubs, supermarkets, shopping centres, parks, clubs, train stations, airports, gym, footpaths, public roads, universities and so on. The list is extensive and includes any place where the public is expected to visit.

The list is extensive and includes any place where the public is expected to visit.
At such public places, it is the duty of all private and public organisations to ensure the safety of all visitors to their sites/premises; and in case they fail this duty of care, all local authorities, businesses, councils, schools and public authorities are required by law to have in place public liability insurance.
This means that if you are injured in a public place, whether it was a trip or fall on the pavement, a slip in a supermarket, or hurt yourself in a leisure centre, and the accident occurred as a result of a failure or beach of duty on the part of the owners - such as potholes on a pavement, spilled liquids on a supermarket floor or faulty gym equipment - then the entity responsible for that business/premises/site is covered by insurance against any claims for personal injury you bring against them.
The staff at Burney Legal specialise in all forms of personal injury claims, including claims arising from accidents in a public place. We can help you win compensation for any personal injuries you have sustained due to public place accidents; and we can do this with absolutely no cost to you (our costs are recovered from the party at fault).
All we require is that you contact us as soon as possible following such an accident. Please speak to one of our claims specialists at our contact phone number for more information; or if you are interested in making a claim for compensation then fill in our online form and one of our staff will respond to you within 24 hours.

Accident At Work

Every employer has a legal obligation and responsibility to provide their employees with safe, secure and hygienic work environments; and by law, they must ensure your safety, security and health while you perform your duties as their employee.
The employer must provide you with safety equipment, adequate machineries and materials, safety training, satisfactory supervision and a safe system of work in place.
Often, however, employers fail on their duties to their employees and as result employees are injured in accidents at the workplace that were not their fault.
Such accidents are common and employers are required by law to have insurance in place to cover them for claims arising as a result of these accidents.
This means that while performing your duties as an employee, if you suffered a physical injury or contracted an industrial disease, then you are legally entitled to compensation.
Even if an accident occurred as a result of faulty equipment or machinery supplied by another company, you are still entitled to claim as it was the responsibility of your employer to ensure that any equipment or machinery they required you to use was safe.
By law, it is the duty of the employer to record your accident in the on-site accident book and this is your evidence that your accident occurred. Subsequent visits to the doctor or hospital in relation will prove your injuries. Because every employer has insurance in place, an employee can claim compensation without any fear of victimisation or repercussions. Most such cases are handled by case workers of the insurance company.
Speak to one of our claim solicitors today for a detailed discussion on your case and an estimate of the amount of compensation that you could be entitled to.

Road Traffic Accidents

There are on average hundreds of road traffic accidents in the UK every day - the majority of which are caused as a result of human error. They can be very traumatic and painful for those involved; and often, can also cause significant financial loses.
Luckily, all vehicle drivers in the UK are required by law to have insurance in place that can compensate those involved in an accident due to the fault of the insured.
This means that if you were involved in a road traffic accident that was not your fault (or you were only partly to blame) and you sustained personal injuries as a result of that accident, then the person responsible (via their insurers) is liable to pay you personal injury compensation and reimburse any loses you incurred.
Therefore, if your vehicle was hit by another, or you were a passenger in any vehicle involved in an accident (including a taxi or bus), or you were a pedestrian/cyclist/motorcyclist involved in an accident, we can help you claim compensation and recover any/all costs you incurred as a result of that accident (including damage to your vehicle, jewellery and loss of income due to days off work).
Our solicitors are experts in this field. Not only will we work to recover maximum compensation for the injuries you sustained, we will also recover any financial losses you incurred as a result of the accident – for absolutely no cost to you.
