If you are unfortunate enough to be hurt in an accident that was not your fault whilst you are in the Oldham area, then you will be relieved to know that there are a number of services that can help you. Here is a list of some of the people and organisations that can assist you at this very difficult and stressful time.
Ambulance service Oldham
The ambulance service in Oldham runs a fleet of vehicles that will attend the scene of all types of accidents. The ambulance and paramedics can give emergency first aid at the scene of an accident and can rapidly transfer injured people to the local Accident & Emergency Department for further specialised medical help.
Accident recovery services
If you have been injured in a road accident that was not your fault the last thing you want to worry about is what to do with your car. It may be so badly damaged that it cannot be driven from the scene or you may be so badly injured that you are not capable of driving it. An accident recovery service will be able to remove your car and take it to your chosen destination, such as a garage, where it may be repaired. Accident claim solicitors may be able to help you recover the costs for this.
Accident claim law firm in Oldham
An accident claim law firm in Oldham is one of the most important services that you will need. Even if your injuries are only slight, it is very likely that they will cost you some money, either being out of work or paying for a prescription. An accident claim solicitor will help you to get some compensation from the person who was at fault for the accident. Unlike the ambulance service and the accident recovery service, which are local, the accident claim solicitor can be part of a national company and based anywhere in the UK.
In fact, many people from Oldham choose to contact Accident Advice Helpline as we have a wealth of experience in making claims. Whist you obviously need your ambulance and accident recovery service to be local, your legal representation does not have to be. This is because most modern claims are handled over the telephone and do not involve visits to a lawyer’s office.
Therapy services Oldham
Many people who are recovering from injuries suffered in accidents require some sort of therapy. Physiotherapy is often used to help victims recover from whiplash and other injuries involving muscles, ligaments and bones. Psychologists and psychotherapists can help with the psychological symptoms such as depression and anxiety.
You can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 – or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
