When you have an accident at home, the consequences can be bad. Depending on the severity of the accident, the adjustments that have to be made to your lifestyle afterwards range from minor to huge.
A lot of these accidents are bad luck too, in that there’s little you can do to get something back from the situation. They occur because something unexpected happened and it might be because you left an obstacle in your own path and forgot about it.
But some accidents happen through no fault of the victim and it’s these accidents that could lead to a claim for compensation through an accident lawyer in Waveney.
How often does an accident lawyer in Waveney deal with home accidents?
More often than you might think. Here are the figures for home accidents from RoSPA:
- 2.7 million accidents in the home (in 2002) resulted in a hospital visit
- Nearly half a million of these were under-fives
- Most accidents were falls
- Almost 4000 people per year die in home accidents
Some of the above accidents prove to be someone else’s fault and it’s those cases which an accident lawyer in Waveney can deal with. At Accident Advice Helpline, we frequently receive enquiries from people looking to make a claim, and if we can take on their case, we will.
How the process starts
Everything begins with that enquiry. That initial phone call to our hotline involves a conversation with a helpful advisor, who is fully trained to guide the caller through the steps involved in claiming through an accident lawyer in Waveney.
If the caller is eligible to claim, their details will be taken and then passed to an accident lawyer in Waveney, so that they can begin to work on the case.
What happens after that?
The lawyer will deal with everything on behalf of the client as far as possible. There’s usually no need for anyone to attend court, as the lawyer should be able to sort everything out via phone, dealing with people at insurance companies and other relevant agencies.
If the claim reaches settlement, the claimant gets a payout. This consists of a sum of money for the accident and injury, as well as another sum for the reimbursement of expenses.
An accident lawyer in Waveney will work on a no win no fee* basis, too, for extra peace of mind.
