If you have recently attended a funeral and were involved in an accident that was not your fault then you may be able to make a funeral injury claim. If you were on public property or at a council-owned location then a third party may have been responsible for the accident. Making a claim against those at fault could secure you a financial package to cover loss of earnings or other bills associated with your injury. The claims experts at Accident Advice Helpline can assist you with making a no win, no fee* claim today. Call our free 24-hour helpline on 0800 180 1423 to get started.
Trips and falls
Trips or falls are a common occurrence and can occur in unusual places such as cemeteries or crematoria. Common injuries include slipping on a surface that is wet but is not signed as such, or falling from or through a platform that has not been maintained properly. You can make a claim if the council owns the premises and it has failed to take reasonable steps to ensure they were safe for use by the general public. Alternatively, if you can prove that the occupier of a building or location was negligent and failed to adhere to a basic duty of care to the local community, you may have an opportunity to claim under the Occupiers’ Liability Act.
To prove that a third party was at fault requires sound evidence. Our expert solicitors will take care of most of this but it would be helpful if you could provide as much information about your injury and the accident as possible. This means noting down the date and time the incident occurred and the details of witnesses present. Photographic evidence of faulty structures or broken paving stones and surfaces can also aid your cause so take as many pictures as possible to support your claim. We will use this evidence as leverage to try to get the maximum amount of compensation due to you.
Financial hardship is one of the primary reasons for seeking a claim. The losses associated with a serious personal injury can be devastating for individuals and families alike. A claim will enable you to recoup some of your outgoings on medical bills or therapy and can also cover the earnings you have lost because of extended leave from work.

You can start the claims process immediately if your accident took place within the last three years, if another person or organisation was to blame and you received medical treatment for that injury shortly after the accident. Funding the claim may be easier than you think as our expert solicitors work on a no win, no fee* basis. This means that there are no upfront costs to pay for your case.
