We understand that when making a compensation claim it is important to know what to expect. That is why at McPartland & Sons Solicitors, we aim to make the process as transparent as possible.
What is compensation?
Compensation is the settlement of money awarded to somebody who was involved in an accident that was not their fault. The finances cover the costs and impact that the injury has had on your life, both now and in the future.
Although claiming compensation cannot take away what you have experienced, it can help you get the apology you deserve and help ease your financial pressure, bringing back some normality to your life.
What are the different types of compensation?
There are several different claims that McPartland & Sons specialise in such as:
- Road Traffic Accidents
- Falls, Trips or Slips
- Accidents in the home or workplace
