Accident injury lawyers in St Asaph
You might be surprised just how many injuries sustained in accidents that were not the victim’s fault can give rise to a personal injury case. The truth is, you won’t need to have had a leg wrongly amputated in a medical negligence case or suffer a paralysing injury at work to retain the services of accident injury lawyers in St Asaph and make a claim for compensation. In fact, you may be able to sue for things that you thought were just part of life.
Say you were walking along a pavement and tripped over a loose paving stone, injuring your knee badly. Some people might think it just a spot of bad luck, but the fact is, you might be able to make a claim against your local authority or another body that had responsibility for the upkeep of said path. You may also be able to sue if you were to slip on a spillage of some sort, either at work, in a supermarket or anywhere else for that matter.
Launching personal injury action
It will be unlikely that you’ll be able to launch legal action if the injuries you sustained as the result of an accident that was not your fault did not require medical treatment. Over and above the fact that your solicitor will need medical evidence to support your case in court, it would be unlikely that a judge would deem you to be deserving of compensation if your injury did not even require a trip to your GP or an accident and emergency department. So, even if you don’t think you need medical attention, it will be vital that you seek some after suffering an accident that was not your fault if you’re going to stand any chance of using accident injury lawyers in St Asaph to win you compensation.
Any other evidence you can provide such as documents relating the incident or any photographic evidence might also be useful to your solicitor, as will the contact details of any witnesses who saw your accident.
