Have you ever broken a bone in your foot? The injury sounds so innocuous, so minor that it comes across as almost comical.
The person least likely to be laughing, though, is likely to be you if you have broken a bone in your foot.
There is an almost incalculable number of ways that you may have broken a bone in your foot and all of them are painful. Does that mean the accident leading to the injury was the fault of the injured party? Absolutely not. Everyday, every single day, people are involved in accidents that happened through no fault of their own.
In these instances, is it fair they have to miss out on things because of somebody elses negligence? Maybe you work on a commision basis – if you can’t get to work, how are you going to earn money? There is no ‘sick pay’ for jobs of this nature, so what are you going to do?
If you cannot get to work, you cannot earn. If you cannot earn, you cannot pay your bills or medical expenses. You can see how somebody could end up flat broke and in debt, quite easily, because of some one else.
Accident Advice Helpline, established in the year 2000, is here to help people like you. People that have been injured in an accident that was no fault of theirs.
To see if you qualify for a no win, no fee** compensation claim then you can either use our 30 second test right here on the site, or just give us a call on a free phone number at the top of this screen.
To begin with you need to be sure that you at least fit the following criteria:
- Your accident must not have been your fault
- There cannot have been a gap longer than three years between the accident and the claim
- You need to have sought medical attention/advice after the accident and before making a claim
If you do fit these criteria then you have a good chance of qualifying and an Accident Advice Helpline lawyer taking on your case. The amount that you could be awarded is not set in stone, as it varies from case to case, but an educated guess (due to our vast experience) can be made and we will give you an estimation of what to expect, should your claim be successful.
This amount takes several things into account including loss of earnings, medical expenses, travel expenses (to hospital, to collect medication… Almost any journey that you now have to pay for as a result of your injuries).
