Claims we deal with

Accidents can happen at any time, and in any place, and in many cases they won't be the fault of the victim.

Accident & Emergency (A & E) Departments are often busy environments, and generally the standard of care provided by the treating Doctors and Nurses is excellent. However, mistakes can and do happen.

Employers have a duty to comply with Health and Safety laws and regulations and to provide their employees with a safe accident free workplace; when we go to work we should be safe in the knowledge that our employers will do all they can to protect us from injury and illness. Sadly, thousands of workers are injured in accidents at work or develop a work-related illness every year.

If you have been injured in a road traffic accident (RTA) which was not wholly your fault then you are entitled to claim compensation.

At Michael W Halsall Solicitors, we understand that being involved in an RTA is a traumatic experience and can leave you with injuries ranging from mild bruising or whiplash to serious, life-altering head or spinal injuries.

Byssinosis is a rare lung condition. It is also known as 'Brown Lung'. It is normally attributable to exposure to dust from vegetable fibres - including cotton, hemp and flax. Workers from the textile industry are often susceptible to this type of disease.
