If you have been involved in any accident which was not your fault, and sustained moderate to serious injuries, you may be able to make accident and injury claims in Cornwall against the person who caused your accident.
In order for you to make a claim, you will need to work with an injury lawyer and have gathered plenty of evidence to ensure that your claim is successful, but before you can do any of this you should work out if you can actually make a claim for your accident. Here are some of the types of accidents that you should be able to claim compensation for.
Road accident claims are some of the most common types of claims. A road accident can mean two cars which have collided, an accident involving a poor road surface or even being hit by a car as a pedestrian. As long as the accident was not your fault then you should be able to claim compensation, even if you are also able to claim for damages on the other person’s insurance.
Accidents at work
This is another common type of accident claim. Accidents at work can encompass a wide range of different situations, including slips, trips and falls, accidents involving faulty machinery, or accidents which you have been caused due to being poorly trained. You can speak to a solicitor to find out whether or not you have a good case for compensation before you proceed with a claim.
Accidents in the street
You can even claim for accidents which you have had in the street, as it is the responsibility of the local council to provide a safe environment for people that live within their borough. Poor roads, dangerous buildings or broken fences and railings can cause accidents which you can claim for.
