Topic Tuesday – Personal Injury

Category: Personal Injury

It is an unfortunate fact that accidents can happen, whether it be at work, on the road or in everyday life. Not only does an injury create a physical impact but mental health, general finances and social ability can all suffer as a result.

In general, people seek legal advice about an injury because they require compensation for the physical injury. However, there are many more areas to consider, which can include:

  • Loss of earnings
  • Rehabilitation after the accident
  • Further medical treatment required
  • Out of pocket expenses such as travel or medical expenses as a result of the accident
  • Gratuitous care and assistance

The laws surrounding negligence are based on fairness. When someone has suffered a loss through an injury as a result of negligence, the injured party can bring a claim to put them back into the position they should have been had the negligence not occurred. At Nash & Co, we want to bring that fairness to our clients, which is why we offer a free no-obligation consultation to ensure everyone has the opportunity to discuss a potential claim.

At Nash & Co, we do not try and settle a personal injury claim as quickly as possible because we work on quality, not quantity. Early settlements generally leave clients under-compensated and still injured without going through full rehabilitation. We spend time on ensuring all problems relating to the injury are addressed and dealt with properly before thinking about compensation.

Nash & Co covers a broad spectrum of personal injury claims, and they include:

  • Road Traffic Accidents
  • Accidents at Work
  • Accidents in Public Places
  • Clinical Negligence Claims
  • Fatal Accident Claims
  • Ministry of Defence Claims
