Making a falling tree branch accident claim may be easier than you think. Call the personal injury specialists at Accident Advice Helpline to find out anything you need to know about making a compensation claim.
What sort of injuries can I claim for?
You are entitled to compensation if your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party. The injuries must be serious enough to warrant medical attention and must have resulted in financial loss.
Falling tree branch injuries may include broken or crushed bones, brain and spinal injuries, lacerations and eye injuries. Often the consequences of these can be very serious and you would be likely to win compensation if the negligence of a third party can be proved.
How can someone else be negligent?
Local authorities, park managers and private owners of land where there are trees are responsible for the maintenance of the trees. Trees should be inspected annually and branches that are likely to fall should be removed. If these actions are not carried out the owner may be considered negligent if a falling branch causes an injury.

Will I have to go to court?
Often there is sufficient evidence of negligence that the third party’s insurers settle without going to court. Evidence will include your medical evidence, your statement and any other witness statements we can obtain and photographic evidence.
Even if the case does go to court, you may well not have to appear. However, do not worry if you do have to go to court. Your lawyer will be there to guide you through the process and you are likely to find it much easier than you expect.
