Car Accident Claims & Other Road Traffic Accidents

Accidents on the road are very common and can include claims for pedestrians hit by vehicles or cyclists involved in a collision with a car.

Goodge Law are experts in accident claims, road traffic accidents claims, cycling accident claims, and motorcycle accident claims.

Lawyer for Accidents At Work Claims

Accidents at work claims can be made where injury has been caused due to dangerous working practices, an accident involving unsuitable machinery or pain caused by lifting heavy items. Personal injury claims can also be made for things like exposure to dangerous substances.

Claims for Trips, Slips or Falls

Councils in the UK have a duty to keep pavements and public highways safe for pedestrians. However, defective pavements can cause injury, especially to the elderly. Thankfully, the prevalence of CCTV cameras in our towns and cities can help provide invaluable evidence should you be involved in a slip, trip or fall.

Goodge Law can also help with:

  • Supermarket accident claims including slipping on wet floors in supermarkets
  • Claims against hospitals or schools for slips, trips or falls
  • Claiming for injuries to cyclists, motorcyclists and motorists due to potholes in the road
  • Injuries caused by raised paving stones, missing kerbstones and defective utility grids

Faulty Product Claims

When you buy a new product you always believe that is has been suitably tested and is safe to use. However, accidents with faulty products can happen. Faulty product claims can occur when a defective product or appliance causes personal injury. Claims for poorly tested products can also be made should they break or leak hazardous materials that can cause harm to humans.

Clinical Negligence Claims

Clinical negligence claims, or medical negligence claims, occur when a patient suffers injury due to substandard medical practice or treatment. Medical negligence cases are complex so it is vitally important that you have experienced personal injury lawyers on your side.
