If you are considering making a falling branch injury claim, it is in your own best interests to seek legal advice.
There are legal firms that deal with personal injury claims, such as Accident Advice Helpline.
Why would I want to make a falling branch injury claim?
Anyone who has suffered an injury through no fault of his or her own may well want to seek redress. You will have suffered pain and may have had to take time off work recovering.
This will have hit you financially and those financial losses can be incorporated into your falling branch injury claim.
You could have well been affected financially by:
- becoming unemployed or having your work hours reduced because of your injury;
- having to pay out of pocket for prescribed medication (unless you have a prepayment certificate or are exempt from paying);
- cost of prescribed physiotherapy and/or counselling and being forced to go private because of long NHS waiting lists;
- cost of travel to and from medical appointments.
As mentioned above, in order to make a falling branch injury claim you must not have been responsible for the incident that led to your injury.
It also has to be shown who was at fault, as the claim will be made against the responsible party.
Your doctor’s report, which should detail the extent of your injuries, could be important when making a claim, so it is important to see the doctor as soon as possible after the accident.
So that your financial losses directly relating to the accident can be factored into the claim, you should keep records and receipts of your expenses.
If there were witnesses to your accident, it could help your case if you pass on their contact details to Accident Advice Helpline, so we can prepare effectively for your falling branch injury claim.
