Accident lawyers in Alfreton
With a population of just under 8,000, Alfreton in Derbyshire until the 1960s had coal mining at its heart. From the swinging 60s onwards, the coal mining industry dwindled to be replaced by light industry, warehousing, retail and the service sector.
With such a happy sounding town, it seems strange to think anyone would need accident lawyers in Alfreton but accidents can and do happen – no matter where you live or visit.
When we are hurt or ill, we expect the NHS to be part of the solution – not contributing to the problem. With the Care Quality Commission reporting that 1 in 4 NHS Trusts are in danger of providing ‘poor care’, it may be that you could need the services of an injury claim.
Accident Advice Helpline has over 10 years experience in helping people make compensation claims for personal injuries received as a result of an accident or incident. The important fact you need to keep in mind if you intend on making a compensation claim, is this accident must not have been your fault. In fact, this will be one of the first pieces of evidence that your chosen injury lawyer will gather from you.
Frequently, when you research making compensation claims, you will come across the phrases compensation culture, a coin phrased many years ago and one which many people attribute to an American influence.
What you will find, is that people use the phrase ‘compensation culture’ in an accusatory way, suggesting your seeking financial redress for your injuries and additional costs, as being wrong or corrupt.
But this is what your injury lawyer will ask you to consider – the long term.
The Long Term
Thankfully, many injuries are relatively minor, causing short term pain and disruption to you daily routine. This, however, is not a reason not to make a compensation claim!
There are instances when injuries affect people for the long term; this can mean anything from being in a wheelchair to having to reduce hours at work due to mobility issues or pain etc.
Your accident lawyers in Alferton will be able to objectively examine the financial help you will need in the long term, building your case to get you the money you need to finance adaptations to your home, for example as well as other items or tasks that may need covering.
