Whether it be a veterinarian to the animals they are treating, or to the beautician who is waxing your eyebrows, or in deed eyebrow in some cases, there is a level of duty of care owed to clients, customers, colleagues, employers and the public in general. 
 
A duty of care is a right to which certain individuals have; it is not something that can be opted out of via a yes/no questionnaire. When our solicitors in Preston, who deal with medical negligence are pursuing a claim for damages for our clients, one of the first things to establish, is whether a duty of care was owed to the individual who has suffered a loss, that has been subsequently breached. This is what helps our solicitors form the basis of your claim for personal injury. 
It can be confusing: is my car use just social, or is it commuting, or do I need to include business use? 
 
Well, MG Legal’s expert team of Personal Injury solicitors in Longridge have pooled their knowledge, to make sure that you choose the right classification, so that you don’t get caught out if you try and make a claim. 
 
Let’s start with the single class: social use. This is more commonly known as social, domestic and pleasure, and covers you for general day-to-day driving, such as shopping, visiting family (or maybe not, if you try and avoid this wherever possible!), and going to visit your team of Personal Injury solicitors in Longridge (or Garstang, or Lancaster – whichever office is most convenient for you). 
So, you get home from work, start making tea (dinner, if you’re in the south), make the following day's packed lunches, shout for everyone to sit down for their tea, empty the dishwasher, shout for everyone to come down for their tea again, empty the bin, shout for everyone to come for their tea again, start eating your tea, and about mid-way through, the family comes and joins you for their tea. They gobble it down as quickly as possible, whilst avoiding all eye contact so that you don’t ask them to put their dirty dishes in the dishwasher (or even worse - wash them by hand). 
Preston’s Personal Injury Solicitors, MG Legal, are nearly always on some kind of fitness regime, and most recently, we wrote about walks up Preston’s local beauty spot, the beautiful, Nicky Nook. 
 
Many people often start their fitness regime with walking. A ramble through the countryside has many benefits of which I am sure you are aware. But, you must be careful, for personal injury claims for slips and trips whilst out in the countryside rarely succeed. 
Whether it be to see your General Practitioner, or a date for a surgical procedure, we all know that waiting for an appointment to resolve a medical issue can be a frustrating and, in some cases, a timely process. 
 
When contacting a medical professional, in many cases, it is not good news as we require assistance in restoring our health and getting better when we are ill. Medical attention is, therefore, usually required quickly, not only to ensure matters are resolved and we are back fighting fit, but also to ensure that any symptoms or conditions do not worsen and, subsequently, cause bigger issues. 
 
This, however, could be set to cause problems, with the Public Spending Watchdog warning that increases in such waiting times could lead to a rise in medical negligence claims. In a recent report, published in March 2019, the National Audit Office reported that approximately 40% of negligence claims are related to failures or delays in diagnosis or treatment. 
Sometimes, through no fault of your own, relationships just don’t work out. No matter how hard you work to try to fix it, sometimes it’s just not fixable. Maybe you’ve grown apart; maybe you realised that although you love your significant other, you no longer love them in the way you’re supposed to- it’s a cliché, but maybe you really are better off as friends. After all, not all love affairs have a happy ending.

As part of your purchase transaction, your conveyancing solicitors will submit searches on your behalf. Essentially, the searches are used to ensure the integrity of the property you are purchasing and that there are no issues which may come to haunt you in the future. See our blog on ‘The Importance of Conveyancing Searches’ for more information on what these entail by following the link, here
Due to the dreaded 'B' word (Brexit), your Solicitors in Preston have seen a rise in the number of people who are applying for an Irish Passport.  
 
But, as part of the process of applying, you have to have your identity certified by a professional, such as MG Legal. But what is certifying a document, and how much does it cost? 
Local Knowledge: - Local Solicitors = Local Knowledge.  
 
So, you found your dream home. The Seller hasn’t disclosed any issues with flooding and you aren’t aware of this being an issue either. You’ve decided not to have searches carried out, and the flooding issue hasn’t come to light. Your local Solicitor knows the area and knows to ask the Solicitor on the otherside whether there have been issues in this regard. Local Knowledge means that there is a much higher likelihood of accuracy when it comes to your transaction and it may also mean speed too. If the Solicitor has local -knowledge they may not have to waste time raising 1,000,000 queries if they already know the answer!  
 
Some property Solicitors in Preston, such as yours truly have dealt with transactions where they have bought the property for one party and are now selling the property so we know they questions that are likely to be raised and we can often pre-empt them! 
When we are unfortunate enough to have a Road Traffic Accident the first casualty is your car, with the repairs needed ranging from a scratch to major structural damage. Occupants are also likely to be injured and it is your right to make a personal injury claim if you are.  
 
These days, a lot of people have fully comprehensive insurance but many do not or, if the accident is not your fault, you might want to spare losing your no-claims bonus and paying a policy excess and instruct MG Legal, your local solicitor in Preston.  
 
As specialist local personal injury solicitors in Preston this allows a more personal approach than your indifferent ‘conveyor belt’ in-house firms insurance companies often use.
