There are a lot of misconceptions and myths that surround compensation claims, many of which stem around the types of injuries that make you eligible – or not – to claim.

Do you need accident legal advice in West Yorkshire?
West Yorkshire is one of the most popular parts of the British countryside with people coming from all over the United Kingdom to walk in the hills. Having travelled hundreds of miles to get there, the last thing anyone wants to happen is to sustain an injury.
Unfortunately, many of the accident and injury claims come from people hurt walking in the countryside all because a landowner failed to repair a broken kerb, which caused the person to slip and seriously injure themselves.
These accidents could result in broken ankles or wrists caused by rolling the joint over the damaged surface and putting your hands out to break your fall. Even concussion if you bang your head.
Either way, they are serious injuries that will require medical attention and a spell in hospital that could have been avoided.
Cyclists are also at increased risk of injury in West Yorkshire because road users simply don’t see them. The cyclist might have come down from the hills where they have been riding all day, heading back to their hotel or car, only for a motorist to pull out of a junction without seeing them, knocking them off their bike.
This is a particularly common cause of compensation claims, with drivers making mistakes behind the wheel that result in serious injuries to cyclists as well as motorcyclists and pedestrians.
