The home isn’t always a place to relax and unwind, have dinner after a long day at work, and entertain friends and family at the weekends. Sometimes, it’s an accident waiting to happen. Just ask an accident lawyer in Sefton – they deal with many claims every year for injuries that have occurred in home accidents.
The facts about accidents at home
If you thought home accidents must be rare, prepare yourself for a shock. Whereas in 2012, there were under 200,000 reported injuries on the UK’s roads, in 2002, there were 2.7 million accidents that happened in the home and required hospital treatment because of injuries.
Quite a sobering statistic, we’re sure you’ll agree.
If you’ve had an accident at home, you might be looking for an accident lawyer in Sefton so that you can make a claim – but are you eligible?
Qualifying to claim compensation
You could make a claim if you’re the victim of an accident that:
- Has led to injury
- Was caused by someone else
- your accident happened within three years
If that’s the case, why not ring up Accident Advice Helpline now? Our hotline is open 24/7, so you can talk to an advisor whenever you like, and they will guide you through all the steps involved in claiming, treating you with empathy and sensitivity throughout.
What your accident lawyer in Sefton will do
If you do qualify – and you can check by going to our website and taking the 30 second test – your case will be handled by a no win no fee personal injury lawyer on our team.
They will need help from you, in that you will need to attend an additional medical assessment, and submit receipts for expenses (part of the payout is for your expenses related to the accident, such as home help fees). But most of the process can be dealt with by them, entirely on your behalf. You probably won’t have to go to court, either.
It will be your solicitor’s aim to secure you the payout that you deserve. They will deal with agencies such as insurers, and fight for a sum of money that reflects what you have endured.
There’s no guarantee that you will win your case, but your accident lawyer in Sefton will work on a no win no fee basis, which should give you peace of mind. Making our clients happy is very important to us at Accident Advice Helpline – we wouldn’t have the endorsement of Esther Rantzen if we didn’t provide the highest quality service.
