    Accident claim lawyers in Landrake

    Landrake is a small rural village on the Cornish side of the Tamar River. If you are seeking accident claim lawyers in Landrake, your best bet to find such expertise would be in Plymouth. So why are you researching information on injury lawyers? Broadly speaking, a victim of an accident, who has been injured due to the actions (or negligence) of a third party, could qualify to make a personal injury claim. This category of accident is known as a non-fault accident.  The commonest circumstances for these claims are from road traffic accidents (RTAs), of which whiplash claims are the majority of claims, then slips, trips and falls, accidents at work, work-related illnesses and clinical negligence.

    Class action claims

    A “class action” is a case brought by a group of people, who are represented jointly in court, under a single representation by their legal team. For example, communities of coal miners have brought cases of work-related illnesses, where numbers of workers have been affected by unhealthy working conditions, and sued for illnesses such as miners’ lung disease (known as “Dust”) as have workers who handled asbestos over prolonged periods and who developed “Asbestosis“, a similar lung condition.

    What about the man in the street?

    If you had an accident and you thought you might have a case, as a single person claimant, your claim would have to qualify by meeting 3 conditions:

    • The accident and subsequent injuries were not your fault
    • You required medical treatment
    • You are bringing your action within 3 years of the incident

    If you, or the injured party, think you have a good chance of proving who was responsible for your injuries, you may have a case. For example, in a road traffic accident “the guy who drove into you” is more likely to be at fault. At work, a lack of enforcement of health and safety procedures could have been responsible for the danger you were in, which caused you to be injured. To quote another example, if the broken kerb had not been repaired by the local authority, and you sprained your ankle or broke your wrist when you fell over it, then you could have a case against the authority.
