Typical caravan accidents
We have previously given caravan accident advice to people who have suffered injury whilst hitching and unhitching their caravan, or who have been injured because of faulty power connections. Some clients have suffered injuries on the caravan park itself.
Accident Advice Helpline’s personal injury solicitors are well experienced in giving caravan accident advice and appreciate that you will have suffered a traumatic experience. You will be listened to and given advice in a sympathetic and professional manner.
What kind of advice will I be given?
Your caravan accident advice will probably centre upon whether you can make a claim. If you have grounds for a claim it is likely to be made against the caravan manufacturer or the body or individual that operates the caravan park.
One thing that needs to be understood is that in order to make a claim you should not have been responsible for the incident. The party that was actually responsible or liable for this will have to be identified. This means that our personal injury solicitors will need to have as much information as possible about your accident in order to give you the appropriate advice.
Why should I make a claim?
If you have suffered a caravan accident, were not personally responsible, and have the grounds to take action, it is right that you should make a claim. Apart from your pain and suffering, you may have lost wages while taking time off work to recover, and this could have directly affected your family. In a worst case scenario, your injuries could result in you having to give up work altogether, which could have a devastating effect on your family and lifestyle. A successful compensation claim could at least help you to meet those additional costs.
You should have seen your doctor following the accident to have your injuries examined. If you have not already done so, we advise you to get a medical examination as soon as possible. The medical report will be important when putting together a caravan accident claim. If the claim is successful, the report on the extent of your injuries could well help determine the size of the compensation awarded.
The advice offered by Accident Advice Helpline’s dedicated personal injury solicitors should at least put your mind at rest as you know where you stand on the issue. At best our advice could lead to you making a claim and securing the compensation you deserve.
