Have you been injured in an accident within the last three years that was someone else’s fault? Maybe your injury caused you to take time off work, and you’ve experienced a loss of earnings? If so, government legislation entitles you to make an accident claim in Glasgow. Personal injury compensation can help to recover some or all of your losses, and with Accident Advice Helpline on your side, you can be sure of making the best possible claim.
Accident claim in Glasgow
All kinds of accidents can result in injury – some minor, some major, but all causing a degree of pain and suffering. Some of the worst ones can result in financial losses too, and it’s not only in major accidents that you can experience major injuries.
Let’s say you were shopping in the city centre of Glasgow on a busy Saturday. Streets like Buchanan Street can be packed with shoppers, and it’s often hard to see exactly where you’re walking. Imagine that you’re halfway up the road when you take a step and your foot goes down an open drain that has no signs around it.
It could be that the drain cover only just came away from the drain itself, but it might have been like that for a while. Maybe on a less busy day you’d have seen it, and avoided it, but on a busy Saturday, it’s sometimes hard to see where you’re stepping for the crowds.
Trips, slips and falls
Trips, slips and falls like these usually result in minor injuries, but on occasion they can result in broken ankles or torn ligaments, for instance. An injury like this might have meant calling an ambulance, getting medical treatment, and possibly taking time off work.
If you were injured in an accident like this, you might not think it’s worth making an accident claim in Glasgow. However, it is the responsibility of the local council to ensure that pedestrianised areas of the city are safe. If there was no appropriate signage to warn you of the open drain, or if the council were aware the repair needed done but took too long to fix it, you might have a claim against them for personal injury compensation.
Such an award can compensate you for your pain and suffering, as well as help you to recover some of all of the financial losses you incurred as a direct result of your injury.
