Questions from the injured of Motherwell
I was made unwell after an accident at home in Motherwell. I had carbon monoxide poisoning after an unqualified gas fitter was employed by my landlord to fix my central heating. Can I claim for an illness? And for an incident that happened at home?
Yes, we have made successful claims for people who have been hurt in an accident at home, and personal injury compensation can be for any injury or illness, however serious.
Why can’t I get legal aid?
The UK government no longer provide legal aid funding for personal injury claims. This is why we are here, to help people who want to claim personal injury compensation but don’t want to pay legal fees upfront. Our injury lawyers only ever work under no win no fee contracts, so if your claim is unsuccessful then you won’t have to pay out a penny.
Nor do you need to pay a consultation fee to see if you are eligible to claim – one of our advisors will be able to tell you – call our helpline now on 0800 689 0500 and we will be happy to talk through the details of your accident with you. There is no obligation on you to continue your claim with us if you choose not to.
I broke my leg and had to take six weeks off of work. I’m a gym instructor. How much compensation will I get?
That would depend on how much you lost in earnings, and various other factors including how your leg was broken. Was the accident your fault or was it the fault of someone else? To get an estimate of how much compensation you could be owed, why not use the compensation calculator on our website: www.accidentadvicehelpline.co.uk?
