Solicitor Certification or Attestation of Your Documents

To obtain more information on Document Certification, please contact one of our experienced lawyers at HS Legal Solicitor.

Why do documents need solicitor certification?

When a document is legalised with the apostille it must have the stamp of a recognised body or the signature of a public official or solicitor. Without the correct certification, a document cannot be legalised.

Documents required signature or stamp only

Many documents have the required signature or stamp and do not need further certification. For example:

  • birth certificates,
  • marriage certificates,
  • court documents and
  • HMRC letters normally

These documents do not need to be signed by a solicitor.

Documents need checking and certifying by a solicitor

Some documents do need checking and a solicitor certification. Common examples are

  • company documents,
  • personal papers,
  • Mortgage deed
  • academic or qualification certificates

These are not typically signed by a recognised public official.

What is solicitor certification?

In simple terms, a solicitor will check a document and then add a statement why they are certifying the document and then add their signature.

The type of certification added to a document will depend on what the document is and why it is being certified. In many circumstances, a document may simply be certified as a copy, or as an original. If you are having your signature witnessed then the solicitor will add ‘signed in my presence’ or ‘witnessed by’ to confirm they saw the document being signed.

Solicitor Certification on documents needs to be done correctly. It is important that documents contain the correct statement, are signed in a solicitor’s name and not the firm’s and that it is clear what date the document was signed.

Public Law and Judicial Review

Public law applies to decisions taken by public bodies including government departments, local authorities and most regulatory bodies and also to quasi public bodies exercising public functions.

What is Public Law?

Public law is that part of law which governs relationships between individuals and the government, and those relationships between individuals which are of direct concern to society. Public law comprises constitutional law, administrative law, tax law and criminal law, as well as all procedural law.

What does Public Laws do?

It can be distinguished from the private law which governs relationships between individuals and private companies.

This area of law, therefore, affects most of us in our everyday lives, from council issued parking tickets, to housing and benefits.

This law governs public bodies which usually derive their authority to make decisions from Parliament in the form of legislation.

If a decision or an action is unauthorised by legislation, a public body will be in breach of legislation and public law principles.

What is judicial review?

Judicial review is the main tool that enables the Court to hold public bodies to account and determine if decision-makers have acted fairly, in good faith, rationally and only using the powers that they have for their proper purposes. These are the ‘public law’ principles which every public decision-maker – from ministers to front-line officers – must respect.

How we can help?

If you believe a public body has acted unlawfully, we can guide you through the decision-makers own appeal mechanism and apply for judicial review of the decision, if necessary.

Our litigation team will try to resolve your matter as quickly and efficiently as possible. For more details contact us on 01206500181.

Change the name of a child

If you wish to change the name of a child, you will require the consent of all other individuals with parental responsibility, i.e. parents and/or guardians. You can then use these to inform official bodies and financial institutions of your change of name.

What documents will I need to bring with me?

  • Birth certificate displaying the name to be changed
  • Passport

What is name deed?

A name deed is an acceptable document to prove that a person has changed their name. It should be used in conjunction with a birth certificate and other supporting documents.

Whiplash Injury Compensation

We’re specialists in whiplash claims and have successfully secured whiplash compensation for thousands of satisfied clients.

 

Do I have whiplash?

Whiplash refers to various neck traumas caused by the head unexpectedly and unnaturally jolting in any direction – damaging tissue in the neck.

What are the symptoms of whiplash injury?

Whiplash symptoms can vary from person to person depending on the precise circumstances in which the injury occurred. If you are experiencing or have experienced any of the following symptoms following an accident, you may have cause to make a whiplash injury claim:

  • Constant discomfort or pain in the neck area (pain severity can differ from case to case)
  • Painful twitches or twinges in the shoulders
  • Difficulty moving the neck due to pain or stiff muscles
  • Light-headedness, uneasy balance and/or slight tinnitus
  • Neck pain and stiffness
  • Loss of range of motion in the neck
  • Headaches, most often starting at the base of the skull
  • Tenderness or pain in the shoulder, upper back or arms
  • Tingling or numbness in the arms
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Some people also have:
  • Blurred vision
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Irritability
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Memory problems
  • Depression

It can take up to 24 hours for any signs of whiplash symptoms to kick in post-accident. Usually, these will only cause discomfort and pain temporarily but some injuries can last for months, even years.

Victims of whiplash injury will often struggle to drive, exercise or carry out any manual labour – meaning you could be required to stay off work until whiplash symptoms subside.

How long do whiplash symptoms last?

In the most common cases, whiplash symptoms will generally subside within a few months. However, there are instances where full recovery can take longer and in rare cases years, with symptoms of whiplash persisting on a long-term basis.

How much compensation for a whiplash injury claim?

The whiplash settlement will take into account any financial expenses that have arisen due to your injury, such as travel expenses, prescriptions, loss of income etc. You will also be compensated for the pain and suffering your whiplash injury has caused you. This payout will depend on the length of time your whiplash symptoms last. Since a full recovery can take anything from a few weeks to several years, it is difficult to give an exact figure for the average payout for a whiplash claim.

We believe it is important to judge each case on an individual basis to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation you deserve. If you would like to know how much you will get for your whiplash claim, the best thing to do is contact us. It is completely free and you will not be obliged to make a claim.

Is it okay to make a Whiplash injury claim?

Of course, whiplash is a medical condition that can cause a considerable amount of pain, and have a significant impact on the sufferer’s quality of life.

You may even have to take time off work, which could leave you in a difficult financial situation.

You deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering your whiplash injury has caused you, as well as for any financial losses you have received due to this.

  • Share information with the other party. This includes phone number, names, insurance details, addresses and car registration numbers.

  • Write down the model of the other parties car, the colour, year and the amount of damage suffered.
  • If there are any witnesses around, take down their information as well.
  • Be sure you note down who the owner of the car is in case he/she was not the driver.

Slip, Trip and Fall Injury Claim

Are you looking to make a slip or trip injury compensation claim? We can help. We’re expert solicitors in slip and fall injury claims and have successfully obtained the maximum available compensation for hundreds of satisfied clients.

Can I make an Injury Compensation Claim for a fall?

Let’s take a quick look at what might lead to a successful slip, trip or fall injury compensation claim …

  • Slip Compensation Claims
    Slip compensation claims often arise due to injuries caused by negligence; for example, someone failed to mop up a spilt liquid on the floor in a public place. Slip claims can also result from slips on ice or surfaces made slippery by rain.
  • Trip Compensation Claims
    Due to too much bad press trip claims can carry a degree of stigma – ignore it. If you tripped on an uneven pavement surface, a pothole, a trailing cable or over an object left where it shouldn’t have been, it’s likely you will be able to make a trip injury claim.
  • Fall Compensation Claims

At the other end of our fall compensation claim work, we deal with serious injuries resulting from falls from ladders, scaffolding, railway platforms, buildings and similar heights.

Working with a number of medical professionals we will conscientiously define the status of your condition, how it can be expected to develop and how it might be resolved. By carefully establishing your exact physical needs we can put together an injury compensation claim that will provide the means to secure the treatment you need, for as long as you need it.

Dealing with your Financial Losses

Slip and fall injuries lead to pain and suffering and it is reasonable you should be compensated for that, but there are other, perhaps more pressing financial considerations. Many of our clients find themselves off work for some time. We see it as a priority to establish financial stability for anyone making a claim. Where it’s appropriate we may even be able to recover payments on account to tide you over while your claim is being processed.

Medical Negligence Claims

All medical professionals, from general practitioners to surgeons owe their patients a duty of care to ensure that they receive the correct treatment in a suitable manner.

But unlike many other professions, a single mistake from a medical practitioner can have drastic consequences for the patient involved. A breach of this duty may entitle you to make a claim for medical negligence.

What is medical negligence?

Medical negligence is when medical professionals make mistakes or fail in their duty of care to you, leading to injury or making an existing condition worse. There are a number of ways that medical negligence can happen, such as misdiagnosis, incorrect treatment or surgical mistakes.

What is a medical negligence claim?

A medical negligence claim (sometimes known as a clinical negligence claim) occurs when a patient takes their medical expert or hospital (or both) to court for compensation due to an act or acts of negligence suffered during their medical care.

Establishing a Medical Negligence claim

In order to establish a medical negligence claim there are two hurdles to overcome:

  • Firstly you have to show that the care provided fell below the standard of a reasonably competent medical professional.
  • Secondly, if a breach of duty is established, the next step is to establish Causation. This means establishing that it was the treatment that caused the damage, which would not have otherwise occurred. In medical cases this is often the most difficult part of the claim to establish.

Types of Medical Negligence Claims

Medical (or clinical) negligence covers a broad range of medical errors, misdiagnosis or low standard of care. Below is a list of the more common negligence cases we deal with:

  • Surgical Injury

    Surgical procedures where errors are made or the surgery is not undertaken to a high standard.

  • Reaction and complications to treatment or drugs

    Being prescribed the incorrect dosage of drugs or type of treatment causing severe adverse effects.

  • Misdiagnosis

    A misdiagnosis claim can be raised if you are diagnosed with an illness which you do not actually have or you were informed that you had no illness when in fact you had.

  • Birth Injury

    Complications or birth injuries during labour caused by preventable medical actions not carried out.

  • Anaesthetic awareness claims

    Anaesthetic awareness can range from being able to hear the operation occurring to the agony of feeling a surgical procedure taking place.

  • Care Home Abuse

    Abuse of elderly or disabled relatives in care can occur in many different forms including physical, mental, emotional or sexual abuse.

  • Dental Negligence

    Incorrect extraction, careless work or failures to identify infections are common forms of dental negligence.

  • Breast Implants

    Breast implants are the most common type of cosmetic surgery in the UK, however loss of feeling and problems with implants still occur.

  • Hospital-acquired infections

    If a poor level of hygiene is present hospitals can contain infections such as MRSA, MSSA and C Difficile.

We want to help you overcome the difficulties you face after suffering from medical negligence by making a compensation claim on your behalf.

  • Building Site Accidents
  • Scaffolding Accidents
  • Factory Accidents
  • Forklift Truck Accidents
  • Lifting Injuries
  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Office Accidents
  • Warehouse Accidents
  • Machinery Injuries

What can I claim for after an accident at work?

Suffering a workplace accident can put a significant and sometimes long-term strain on your financial affairs. Therefore when negotiating how much compensation you deserve for your injury, as well as any other financial losses caused as a result, it is important we consider a number of additional factors that include:

Medical Treatment

Our role is to ensure that when you make a claim for a workplace accident, your compensation is awarded at a level that will cover all of your medical needs. Some injuries may require physiotherapy or other rehabilitation treatment in order to fully recover. Other accident at work claims can involve serious injury, even disablement which may require surgery, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, rehabilitation, ongoing drug treatment, home adaptation or the provision of specialist equipment.

As experienced work accident solicitors, we work with medical professionals to understand the status and extent of your injuries, how they can be expected to develop and how and when they might be resolved.

Dealing with financial losses

Accident at work injuries lead to discomfort, suffering and can affect your quality of life: so it’s only reasonable that you should be compensated.

  • Many of our clients find themselves off work for some time. We see it as a priority to establish financial stability for anyone making a work accident compensation claim. Where it’s appropriate we may even be able to recover payments on account to tide you over whilst your claim is being processed.
  • If your injury is serious your claim may have to cover long-term support services, adaptation of your home and the cost of a suitable new vehicle.

How long after an accident at work can I claim?

Generally, you have three years from the date of the accident in which to issue legal proceedings with the court. However as investigating the accident circumstances and obtaining medical evidence can take several months, you should seek legal assistance as soon as possible.

How long does an accident at work claim take?

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) has introduced a streamlined claim process for employer-related accidents occurring after 31st July 2013. So a straightforward claim that runs through this process should ideally reach a settlement in around nine months.

However many claims exit the MoJ process due to their complexity or the employer failing to admit liability, which can then extend the length of time needed to reach a comprehensive settlement.

Why we provide the best legal advice

We are a UK Solicitors law firm and are fully authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority(link is external) (SRA) and as a professional law firm are completely exempt from requiring authorisation by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner(link is external) (OISC). Many businesses offering immigration services are only OISC regulated and as such are not professional legal organisations such as Solicitors firms or Barristers’ chambers. OISC businesses are not allowed to do legal work before the Courts such as Judicial Review or statutory challenges of Home Office decisions. Also as a professional organisation, our policy is not to employ sales staff to give you “advice” (all our telephone consultations are handled by lawyers). We are often instructed at immigration appeal stages in cases that ‘immigration businesses’ have dealt with and which were clearly hopeless applications at the outset. When you instruct us, qualified immigration solicitors or immigration barristers work on your case from the outset when it matters the most in order to ensure no time and money is wasted and more importantly that no mistakes are made.

Immigration Expert

We ensure our clients comply with the Immigration Rules and the strict requirements of the UKBA prior to making an application, thereby eliminating much of the stress of the student visitor visa application process.
