If you have been injured in an accident on a footpath or pothole and believe that you are entitled to compensation, the first thing you need to do is contact a personal injury lawyer. Baxter Mimnagh personal injury solicitors are an experienced team of law professionals dedicated to getting you the compensation you deserve. Due to the high amount of claims for footpath and pothole accidents, claiming is oftentimes a long drawn out and complex affair. Getting expert help from a qualified professional will make claiming for your accident much easier.
The first thing our team will do is assess whether or not you have a valid claim. If your claim is valid, we will begin gathering evidence to support your claim. Once it is clear who is liable for the accident, a letter of claim will be sent to the liable party (council, landowner).
If the identified party accepts liability for the accident, our lawyers will begin negotiating the terms of your claim. While we aim to deal with claims outside of court, in the case that the party rejects the liability claim, or if a reasonable agreement could not be met during the negotiation process, the case might be brought to court.
