If you have had an accident near there you might be looking for an accident solicitor Berrynarbor in the local phone directory. You might be online searching for an accident solicitor Berrynarbor and you might be concerned about the changes to the law regarding personal injury compensation claims.
You can still make a personal injury compensation claim either through your trades union, if you are a member, or through a personal injury compensation claim solicitor. You will need someone to represent you who has the knowledge and expertise to do so.
Why do people make a personal injury claim?
There are three main reasons why people decide to make a personal injury compensation claim. These are outlined briefly below.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury sustained in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, then you can claim for the pain, distress and suffering caused, loss of earnings and medical expenses (if you keep receipts). Compensation can also cover future medical expenses and rehabilitation as well as refitting and adapting a home after a serious injury.
Another reason for people making a personal injury compensation claim is to get a sense of justice. They might have lost a close relative and want the person responsible for the accident, or their employer in the case of a work-related illness. When a judge gives an award for compensation the person or their family feel vindicated and that they have received justice. They can then begin to rebuild their lives and move on, especially in the case of a bereavement.
Accident solicitor in Berrynarbor
Some people make a personal injury compensation claim so that others will not be injured in the same way. For example if you broke your arm after falling over a broken paving stone in the street and made a successful personal injury compensation claim against your local authority, those responsible would at least repair that part of the pavement and might, in an attempt to save money, repair all broken pavements in your town.
