Whenever someone contacts Accident Advice Helpline looking for ambulance worker accident advice, we are always glad to help. As one of the premier personal injury law firms in the UK, we receive numerous requests for compensation claim advice daily.
Due to the nature of their job, ambulance workers are vulnerable to road traffic accidents or trips and falls. Since ambulances have to speed on the roads while responding to emergencies, traffic accidents are sometimes inevitable. This is especially the case when you consider the number of careless or negligent drivers, cyclists or pedestrians on our roads.
Ambulance workers can also slip, trip or fall while rushing to deal with an emergency. We have also dealt with cases where these workers have sustained injuries as a result of using malfunctioning or faulty equipment.
If you are an ambulance worker who has been involved in an accident, incurring injuries in the process, you may have valid reasons for making an ambulance worker accident claim. However, you need to have enough evidence to prove that the responsibility for the accident lies with someone else. You also need to prove that you received medical attention for the injuries you suffered.
Proving liability in ambulance accident cases can be a tricky affair. You will need legal representation if you hope to win your compensation claim.
Why you require legal representation
The compensation process is often confusing and tedious for most people. That is why we at Accident Advice Helpline always advise our clients to engage the services of an experienced personal injury solicitor. You should choose a solicitor who specialises in ambulance worker accidents. The solicitor will first peruse your case to determine the strength of the claim and will decide if it is worth pursuing.
Your solicitor understands legal proceedings and is better placed to deal with the legal paperwork required in your compensation claim. They can also interpret legal jargon for you while advising you on the best way to proceed with your case.
A personal injury solicitor will know how to investigate your compensation case, gathering relevant evidence and helping you to establish liability. They will negotiate the terms of the claim with the guilty party and represent you in all correspondence. The defendant in the case is more likely to take your compensation claim seriously if a solicitor is involved. Additionally, your solicitor will represent you in court should your case proceed that far.
We know that finding quality legal representation at an affordable price is a tall order. That is why all solicitors who work for us do so on a no win no fee basis. We do not charge any upfront fees to process your claim and you will not pay a penny of your money if your claim is unsuccessful.
