    Accident and injury claims in Suffolk


    Personal Injury Solicitors in Suffolk

    Who makes accident and injury claims in Suffolk?

    At Accident Advice Helpline we specialise in helping people secure the financial compensation they are entitled to after they have been involved in accidents they did not cause. Such compensation can help them to get control of their lives again and move forward after the disruption of an accident and the resulting injuries.

    But who exactly makes such accident and injury claims in Suffolk? To be honest, this can be a difficult question to answer as in theory anyone can make a claim. As long as you meet the criteria to claim, then there is no reason why you would not be able to do so.

    The criteria means:

    • You have to have been injured as a result of an accident
    • The accident cannot have been your fault
    • The accident should have occurred within the last three years

    That said, there are certain sections of the community that you could identify as being able to make accident and injury claims in Suffolk.

    Employees

    All employees have a right to expect to be safe whilst at work. This means that employers must do all they can to ensure that their staff are not put at risk. There are various ways they can do this, for example by making sure that the work environment itself is safe and that all staff are properly trained to be able to do their jobs.

    Road users

    If you are using the roads, whether you are a driver, passenger or even a pedestrian you have the right not to be injured. Should another road user cause you injury as a result of their actions or negligence then you could be able to seek compensation against them.

    Members of the public

    Accidents often occur in public places, whether these be internal or external areas. If you have slipped, tripped or fallen as a result of a problem with a public venue then you could claim compensation for your injuries.

    Children

    Although a child cannot make a claim in their own right, being too young to do so legally, they can have one made on their behalf. Alternatively the child can make a claim when they are old enough (i.e. once they have reached the age of 18).
