Reasons why you might consider making a claim
When asking the question, ‘can I claim for a falling branch accident?’, quite obviously there must be a reason why. Aside from the pain and suffering caused by your injury, the accident could have caused you financial problems. This could be because of:
- earnings lost while taking time off recovering from your injuries;
- having to meet prescription charges for prescribed medication;
- the cost of physiotherapy or counselling if you go private;
- the cost of travel to and from medical appointments or therapy / counselling sessions.
Keep records of wages lost and any other expenses occurred because of the accident so they can be factored into any claim.
How much compensation will I be awarded?
We cannot tell you how much you can expect to receive as compensation should your claim be successful. However, you can get a rough idea by using the 30-second test on our homepage.
There are time limits for making personal injury claims. Generally they have to be made within three years of the accident that led to the injury. So to find out if you can definitely claim for a falling branch accident, call us at Accident Advice Helpline immediately.
