What kind of home accident might lead to a claim through an accident lawyer in Waverley?
That’s a question that we’re often asked by people, as surprising as it may sound. The surprise comes from the fact that many of us consider the home to be the last place we’d expect to have an accident and suffer injury.
The reality is different. According to RoSPA:
- 2.7 million home accidents led to hospital treatment in 2002
- Most home accidents are falls
- Around half a million home accidents in 2002 involved under-fives
- The living room is the most likely place for an accident
When you think about these figures, you might realise that it all seems to fit. After all, we do spend a lot of our time at home and much of this is spent in the living room.
What people may find difficult to cope with is the idea of something horrible happening in their own home. It can, though. But if it does, there are some circumstances under which it is possible to make a claim through an accident lawyer in Waverley.
What will an accident lawyer in Waverley do?
If you’re eligible to claim, an accident lawyer in Waverley will work on your behalf, with the aim of securing you a payment of compensation.
Win your case and you’ll receive compensation. Lose your case and you won’t receive a payout unfortunately, but at least your lawyer will be working on a no-win, no-fee basis.
You will need to attend an additional medical assessment and submit as much evidence as you can, in the form of receipts for expenses, photographs of the accident scene and other material that your accident lawyer in Waverley might require.
But most of the process will be taken care of by your solicitor. There’s usually no need for you to go to court, either.
Who is eligible to claim?
Anyone who has been injured in an accident that was someone else’s fault could be eligible for compensation.
