What is a personal injury claim?

A “personal injury claim” is shorthand for a claim for compensation for injuries or illness arising from the negligence or breach of statutory duty by a third party. If you have suffered an injury because of somebody else’s fault you may be entitled to substantial compensation. At Livingstons we can advise you about any of the following types of claim:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Cycling accidents
  • Accidents at work
  • Repetitive strain injuries
  • Medical negligence
  • Industrial diseases (e.g. asbestosis)
  • Equestrian injury claims

We have experience of dealing with all these types of cases and with cycling becoming ever more popular, we welcome enquiries regarding this recreational activity. Faulty thoroughfares or potholes may be the cause of your personal injury or you may have been hit by a motor vehicle. Please contact us today.

If you would like to know more please email us or telephone us: 01229 462126.

We have offices in: Ulverston and Dalton in Furness.

Our employment team has received (and continues to receive) a large number of requests for help from companies who would like assistance with interpreting the ongoing changes to the furlough scheme and/or who are advance planning for when the furlough scheme comes to an end.  Some of this planning may involve consideration of short-time working or even redundancies and some involves dealing with specific concerns that returning employees may have about health and safety or about childcare and other obligations.

We have produced a number of factsheets for our employer clients which explain the Government guidance and which provide some practical guidance on how to deal with some of these matters.

If you have any specific queries about ending your furlough scheme or need any assistance with restructuring your business in light of the ongoing economic difficulties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, please e-mail Steve Walker at or Gail Black at

Full details of how we are dealing with Coronavirus are available here.

We will do everything possible to keep disruption to a minimum during this difficult time.
