Personal Injury in Cheltenham
Waldrons Solicitors have first-class knowledge and experience in personal injury claims across Cheltenham and the West Midlands region.
Personal accident and injury claims are very common in the UK and are designed to provide compensation when someone sustains an injury that is not their fault and was instead caused by the negligence of others.
Whilst workplace and road accident personal injury claims are the most common type of personal accident or injury claim in the UK, it’s also possible to make claims for incidents that occurred on public, private and commercial property, for any incident where someone acted negligently and failed in their duty of care.

What Types of Personal Injury Can I Claim For?
Most personal injuries and accidents occur at work or on the road, but people are often surprised by what accidents they can claim for.
Any accident or incident that causes injury and involves negligence where a duty of care was owed may qualify for workplace accident compensation.
Workplace accidents are one of the primary causes of personal injury claims in the UK. Hazardous workplaces require an employer to pay rigorous attention to health and safety. Where this duty of care is not upheld, leading to an accident, personal injury claims are possible.
Road traffic accidents and incidents may qualify for compensation where someone is injured due to the negligence of others. Both the passengers and driver of the vehicle may be able to claim.
Slip and Trip Accidents
Slip and trip personal injury claims typically involve hazardous flooring. Crooked tiling, wonky paving or slippery surfaces that are not sufficiently marked out may all constitute a slip and trip hazard.
How Do I Know If I Am Entitled to a Personal Injury Claim?
There are 3 main criteria that must be met to make a personal injury claim:
- The incident occurred in the last 3 years (but there are different rules for children)
- Someone acted negligently
- That person/place also owed you a duty of care
