Not many people think about making a personal injury claim for compensation, because none of us expect to be injured in an accident that was not our fault. But over 3 million accidents happen every year in the UK, and many of these will involve innocent victims who were not at fault. They may then get in touch with an accident lawyer in Newcastle-under-Lyme to discuss compensation claims, and will tell them about their accident, which could have been:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Accidents in public places
- Slips, trips and falls
- Animal attacks
- Food poisoning
- Holiday accidents
- Sporting accidents
In fact, any accidents that were not the fault of the innocent victim come under the umbrella of personal injury claims as long as the injuries needed the attention of a medical professional, and it took place no more than three years ago.
The injuries that an accident lawyer in Newcastle-under-Lyme can help you claim for
Injuries vary greatly for each victim, in their severity and how they alter the victim’s life. Two victims can have exactly the same injury, but because of their personal circumstances, their lives are affected very differently.
At Accident Advice Helpline, our expertise means that we will take all this into consideration when we are dealing with your personal injury claim.
