    New Year celebrations accident claim


    A New Year celebrations accident claim could help you to secure the money owed to you following a serious accident. If your festive celebrations were recently cut short by life changing or permanent injuries then Accident Advice Helpline could offer you a brighter future by making a personal injury claim for you. This claim will cover the costs associated with your New Year accident if you were injured due to the negligence or carelessness of another person, event organiser or business.

    New Year injuries

    Millions of people across the UK celebrate New Year. They attend parties at bars and nightclubs, go to firework displays and attend mass gatherings such as the New Year’s Eve events in London, Edinburgh and other major cities. Serious accidents are a rare occurrence, but they can happen if health and safety measures are not followed. It is up to event organisers and bar owners to look after the public. This duty of care means they must clear away hazardous objects, ensure surfaces are clean and maintained, or follow procedures for setting off fireworks correctly.

    If a third party was negligent in any way and it led to you sustaining serious injuries, you have a right and responsibility to make a no win, no fee* claim for compensation. These injuries could include a broken leg due to a fall from a height, or serious burns due to a faulty firework. Celebrations are often exuberant, but that does not mean that people can be careless. If you were injured and someone was to blame then you can recover any costs involved with a successful claim.

    How will a claim help?

    If you have been struggling to meet monthly bills or mortgage repayments then it is time to do something about it. You and your family should not suffer due to the mistake of another person. If you do not make a claim, they will not be brought to justice for what they did, and other people may be injured due to their negligence. A New Year celebrations accident claim will help everyone involved. It will even help those who are liable to learn from their mistakes.

    All we will need from you are the details of how, why and where the accident occurred. We suggest you also collect contact witness details so that our expert solicitors can begin to compile your case with compelling evidence.
