If you have been injured by a falling tree, you may want to find out if you can claim for compensation. In these circumstances you will need tree falling injury advice.
The owners of the land where the tree was standing have an obligation to ensure that their property was in good condition and posed no threat to you or anyone else.
Whether the land is privately owned, or owned by the local council, if you are injured by a falling tree or branch, it is in your own best interests to contact Accident Advice Helpline to seek tree falling injury advice.
Why do I need tree falling injury advice?
By receiving tree falling injury advice, you will be able to discover the legal aspects following your accident and determine if there are grounds for a claim.
Whether you decide to pursue any action or not is entirely up to you. When you contact us for tree falling injury advice, we will never put you under any pressure to make a claim.
How will I benefit from a claim?
Having suffered a tree falling accident along with all the pain and suffering involved, you may well want justice. A claim can help you gain that justice.
By making a claim for compensation, you may also be able to recover the money lost because of the accident. The losses can include:
- Lost earnings: Time taken off from work for treatment, recovery and rest could well have cost you a lot of money in terms of lost wages.
- Cost of medical treatment: Unless you are entitled to free prescriptions (such as those available to cancer or diabetes sufferers) or have a prepaid certificate, you will have to pay for all medication prescribed by your doctor.
- Cost of therapy: You may have had to attend physiotherapy or counselling sessions. If you have had to go private, these can be very expensive and a strain on your finances.
- Cost of travel: The cost of travelling to medical appointments, including physiotherapy and counselling sessions, can be very expensive.
These expenses may be able to be factored into you claim for compensation, but you will need to keep records and receipts.
