Nuisance

Nuisance

Over the years we have brought a number of claims on behalf of people who have been living in a particular building or area whose lifestyles have been affected by what the Law recognises as ‘nuisance’.

Nuisance is broadly defined as:
“Inconvenience materially interfering with the ordinary physical comforts of human existence not merely according to the elegant or dainty modes and habits of living but according to plain and sober and simple notion and habits obtaining amongst the English people” [Walter -v- Selfe 1951] in simple terms therefore if your home and life-style are adversely affected by smoke, steam, smell, artificial light or noise you might be able to receive compensation from the people creating that nuisance.

We currently act for a substantial number of claimants in the Weston Point area of Runcorn who maintain that they are suffering such nuisance because of the various escapes from the Runcorn EfW Incinerator operated by Viridor.

We have considerable experience in these large-scale claims and currently have on board a team of Solicitors, Barristers and Engineers with whom we have worked with great success on previous occasions.

Lasting Power of Attorney
Property and Financial Affairs/Health and Welfare

Lasting Power of Attorney

You may not think ahead when you are healthy and well, but it is sensible to consider what would happen if you are unable to manage your affairs because of a stroke, old age, or the early onset of dementia, dementia, or the or the early onset of Alzheimer’s.

The most popular Lasting Power of Attorney that we are asked to prepare for clients is Property and Affairs. This document gives your appointed Attorney/Attorneys authority to deal with your property and financial affairs.

The other Lasting Power of Attorney is Health and Welfare that gives your Attorney/Attorneys a say in any medical treatment, which is considered necessary or should experience any mental or physical disability at any time. Age is not a guide.

A Lasting Power of Attorney can be obtained as long as they still have mental capacity, even if a person has been diagnosed with early signs of dementia or Alzheimer’s. Should there be an issue as to capacity, we would recommend obtaining a Medical Report from their GP or a Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry.

We can offer home, hospital or residential home visits.

We offer a fixed price service:

Lasting Power of Attorney £420.00, which includes VAT but excludes disbursements (Capacity Report)

*A Discount will be applied if more than one LPA is prepared

*Subject to Terms and Conditions will apply.

Personal Injury

Personal Injury

Our Personal Injury team has vast experience in personal injury work including:

Road Traffic Accidents [driver or passenger] involving in minor, serious or fatal injuries.
Accidents at work
Tripping accidents
Slipping accidents
Industrial Disease
Criminal Injuries Compensation claims (C.I.C.A)
Clinical Negligence
Product Liability

Accidents can occur anywhere and it is more likely than not that you will suffer personal injury (pain and suffering). If you have been injured through no fault of your own, then there is no need to suffer in silence; you may be able to claim compensation.

Silverman Livermore has a dedicated Personal Injury team with a combined experience of over 75 years. We will deal with any aspect of accidents or personal injury and offer to deal with cases on a “No Win, No Fee” principal. We can offer alternative funding options when pursuing a claim.

We understand that any injury sustained in an accident can have an adverse effect on your day-to-day living and in the future. It may stop you from working or prevent you from enjoying your daily leisure activities. Recent legal changes mean that personal injury claims are processed much more quickly, meaning successful cases are able to settle and move on with their lives much more quickly.

In the event that your claim is unsuccessful, usually you are not responsible to pay your Opponents costs, unless there is evidence of fraud or dishonesty.
