Have you ever broken your leg?
If you have broken your leg, either recently or in the past, you will know just how painful an experience it is. It can also be exceptionally frustrating as there are suddenly a number of things that you will struggle to do as well, or as easily as you once did. What you may not be aware of though is that if your injury was caused as a result of the actions of someone else, then you could be entitled to make an accident injury claim in Tonbridge and Malling.
There are some criteria that need to be met, for example, your accident must have occurred within the last three years, but generally speaking if your broken leg was not your fault then you could seek compensation. To find out for certain if you meet the criteria, and to get an idea of how much your claim could be worth, take our Accident Advice Helpline 30 second test today.
Why you can make an accident injury claim in Tonbridge and Malling
The law is there to protect us all from harm. This means that if someone else has caused our accident, and the resulting injuries, they must be held accountable. Generally speaking this means that if they are an employer, for example, they will have to make significant changes to the work environment or policies to ensure that such an accident does not happen again. They will also have to pay compensation (via their insurer) if an accident injury claim in Tonbridge and Malling is made against them.
However, some people are reluctant to make a claim for compensation after an accident. It is important to consider though the effects that such an injury can have on your life, and why compensation is a legal right:
- A broken leg means that you are unable to drive.
- You might have to take time off from work as you recover from your injury.
- There could be long term complications due to your injury, depending on its severity.
- You may miss out on events, for example, a holiday you were looking forward to or dancing at your daughter’s wedding.
