  • Experienced solicitors

    Personal injury claims can be made in a variety of situations where the negligence, poor safety procedures or dangerous behaviour of an individual or an organisation has caused you to suffer an injury. Personal injury claims are most frequently associated with accidents involving slips & trips as well as falls from height. Accidents of this type are easily preventable if the proper procedures for identifying hazards are ignored and the simple steps needed to remove risks are not taken.

    As our experiences making personal injury claims has shown, the vast majority of personal injury claims being made by people who have suffered relatively common and quite predictable accidents. There are still thousands of business and organisations around the country who do not carry out the basic steps to ensure that their employees and members of the public are not put at unnecessary risk of an accident at work. The personal injury claims made by injured employees and members of the public reflect this situation.

    At OISC, our personal injury claims solicitors treat each and every accident victim as an individual and assess every personal injury claim on its own merits.
