Slips, trips and falls
Because councils around the country are facing similar budget issues to South Kesteven, the risk of accidents is growing. Basic details such as routine maintenance can be missed which may lead to accidents. Most of these can be relatively minor, but even a small accident can lead to significant consequences.
Imagine for a moment you’re forced off work for a few weeks because you injure your ankle tripping over a paving slab. If you’re unable to work, you might find your ability to earn money takes a significant hit. Equally, you could find that medical expenses and travel costs mount up meaning you might find yourself struggling financially.
Personal injury compensation is intended to help you with that. It takes into account three different sums of money. The first is a sum based on the amount you’ve lost out on. The second is an amount based on how much you’ve spent and the third is a sum for the injury itself. Needless to say, the more serious injuries fetch a higher price. These sums can be brought together to form a final compensation estimate which you can use to set goals as you move forward with the process.
It’s important to provide as much information as possible about your situation when planning a claim. Keep a note of everything you’ve spent as a result of your accident. If you’re planning further medical treatment which is not covered by the NHS, make sure you have a couple of quotes which show how much it is going to cost. Equally, you should keep track of any information you have about your claim including the contact details of any witnesses who might be able to provide statements backing up your version of events.
How to pay for your claim
All personal injury claims come with a cost. However, if you use a no win no fee lawyer you can mitigate the risks of making a claim. Legal fees will only be applicable for successful cases which reduces the pressure on you as you make a claim.
