Could you make an accident claim in Westcliff on Sea?
To find out if you are eligible to make an accident claim in Westcliff on Sea, you can take our 30-second test. This will not only tell you if your accident and injuries qualify you to make a claim for financial compensation, but will also give you a good idea of how much your compensation claim might be worth.
Here are some examples of the sorts of cases that we can help with.
Road traffic accidents
You can make an accident claim in Westcliff on Sea if you have been involved and injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault. For example, if you were the driver of a vehicle and you were being tailgated by another driver, if for some reason you have to put on your brakes suddenly, perhaps because of an obstacle in the road ahead, and the driver of the tailgating vehicle goes into the back of you, this accident would not be your fault. You might be lucky enough to escape with some minor bruises or whiplash (a common road traffic accident injury), or you might have more serious injuries.
You could also make a claim if you were the passenger in the same vehicle, or if you were perhaps in a taxi, coach, bus or even train when it collided with another vehicle or obstacle. As long as the accident was not your fault, you can make an accident claim in Westcliff on Sea.
Slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls can occur anywhere, and can often result in some rather serious injuries, for example broken bones. Of course, not all slips, trips or falls are someone’s fault — sometimes they do “just happen.” However, if you have had a slip as a result of someone not cleaning up a spillage on the floor properly in a public place, if you have tripped over a hazard that should not have been there (for example, a poorly fitted floor tile) in a public place, or if you have fallen as a result of a faulty barrier or ladder, then you might be entitled to make an accident claim in Westcliff on Sea.
You can make an accident claim in Westcliff on Sea for medical negligence if you have suffered injury or harm as a result of something your doctor or a medical professional has done wrong. For example, you might have been misdiagnosed (or your doctor may have completely failed to diagnose an illness) or you might have received the wrong treatment (this could be surgical treatment or the prescription of the wrong medication).
You can also make a claim if you have been prescribed the wrong dose of medication by a medical professional, or if the wrong dose has been supplied by a pharmacist. Medical negligence can also relate to dentists and other healthcare professionals.
