Have you suffered an abdominal injury either at work, in a road traffic accident or in a public place? Abdominal injuries can cover a range of injuries affecting the abdominal area and your internal organs, and serious injuries could be life-changing. The good news is that if you’ve suffered this type of injury and somebody else is to blame, you could claim abdominal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline has been helping people claim personal injury compensation since 2000 and you can rely on us to provide an efficient, personal service – on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.
What injuries have you sustained?
Abdominal injuries could include:
- Damage to the kidneys, bladder or bowel
- Hernia (often caused by manual handling accidents)
- Injury to abdominal muscle
- Food poisoning
Common causes of abdominal injuries include workplace accidents, road traffic accidents or accidents involving slips, trips and falls in a public place. Perhaps you have been injured at work when a heavy pallet or tools fell on you, or have suffered a hernia after lifting heavy items without proper manual handling training. Or maybe you’ve injured your abdominal muscles in a car accident – crush injuries can cause abdominal pain, internal bleeding and even damage to your kidneys or bladder.
You could make a claim for abdominal injury compensation if you’ve been injured due to somebody else’s negligence. For example, the employer who didn’t provide manual handling training or the speeding driver of the car which hit yours could be held liable for your injuries, and we can help you to prove they are at fault.
Don’t delay, you could miss out
With a three-year time limit in place for personal injury claims, making a claim for compensation promptly is important, or you could miss out on the money you’re entitled to. If somebody else is to blame for your accident and you’ve needed medical treatment for your injuries, your claim is likely to be successful. Whether you have suffered minor injuries and made a full recovery or have sustained damage to your internal organs that has left you in chronic pain or permanently disabled, we can help you to claim the compensation you deserve.
The more severe your injuries (and their impact on your life), the more compensation you could be entitled to claim. Get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 and find out if you could make a claim after your accident. It’s free to call and get confidential, no-obligation advice from our expert advisors.
