Why should I use Accident Advice Helpline for road sweeper accident advice?

We employ an in-house team of lawyers who are experienced in dealing with all areas of personal injury law and hence are adept at giving road sweeper accident advice. What’s more, we operate on a no win, no fee*’ basis, so it costs you nothing to have us instigate legal proceedings on your behalf. When you contact us using our free 24-hour helpline, or by completing our online application form, one of our advisers will either speak to you directly or call you back as soon as possible. Having discussed the details of your accident with you, he or she will tell you if your claim for compensation is likely to succeed. If the adviser believes you do have a valid case, you have the option of appointing an Accident Advice Helpline solicitor to instigate legal proceedings for you, but you are under no obligation to use our services if you do not wish to.

What advice will I be given?

The first two questions you are likely to be asked when you speak to an adviser are whether you can prove the accident was not your fault, and whether you can identify the person or persons who were responsible. A negative answer to either of these questions will make it highly unlikely that you have grounds for making a valid claim.

One of the most important points to be aware of in terms of making a personal injury claim is that under UK law you must act within three years of the date of your road sweeper accident. Claims made outside this period will not be considered, except in specific cases. For example, if you were under 18 years of age at the time of the accident, then the three year period begins on your 18th birthday.

Who do I claim against?

If, for example, you have been injured as the result of being hit by a motor vehicle while you were sweeping the street, then your claim will be made against the driver of the vehicle. However, any compensation you are awarded will be paid by his or her insurance company. All vehicles driven on the public highway must have a minimum of third party insurance.

If your injuries involved a trip or fall due to uneven paving or a pothole, for instance, the council or local authority is likely to be responsible. They will have public liability insurance in place and once again it will be their insurer who has to pay.

Finally, if you received inadequate training or were issued with defective equipment, your employer will be held responsible. Under UK law, anyone working for a company or organisation is covered by their employers’ liability insurance.
