Do you need the services of an accident lawyer in Eastbourne? If so, you should call Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible. You have just three years to make a claim from the date of your accident, and our lines are open 24/7, so you can talk to someone whenever you like.
What kind of accident have you had?
To make a claim, your accident needs to fulfil the following criteria:
- It was someone else’s fault
- It caused you to suffer personal injury
The actual situation doesn’t matter. It could happen at work, at home, in a park, or in the high street – it could even happen when you’re on holiday.
Nor does the type of accident or injury have any bearing on your eligibility to claim. At Accident Advice Helpline, an accident lawyer in Eastbourne can deal with claims for a whole range of incidents, including:
- Slips, trips and falls
- Work-related accidents
- Faulty product injuries
- Road traffic accidents
An example of a claim we might take on
Suppose you work in a kitchen as a cook or chef, and you trip over something that has been left near your workstation. This trip causes you to fall and break your wrist. You are signed off by the doctor, because you are clearly not able to carry out your usual duties with your arm in plaster.
Whilst off work, recovering, you lose money. Part of this is because your pay drops, but it’s also because you have had to hire a home help to take care of your household chores – and, of course, they have to be paid.
In this case, an accident lawyer in Eastbourne could pursue a claim against your employer for you. Employers have a duty to ensure that their employees have safe working conditions, and if you tripped at work because an obstacle was present, your working conditions were clearly not suitable for you to be able to work in safety.
If you win your case, you will get a payout. This will enable you to take care of these losses and expenses – and, because payouts include an element for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity, you will have a bit extra to help you get your life back on track without having to worry about your finances.
