Have you had an accident which was not your fault? If your answer to this question is yes, then you could be looking for an accident solicitor in Betchworth or elsewhere in the country in order to find out if you have grounds for making a personal injury compensation claim.
Accident solicitors in Betchworth and elsewhere will also be able to help you make a personal injury claim for a work-related (occupational) illness, if you can show that your employer was or is negligent.
There are different types of accident
You may not realize how many different types of accident there are but they can happen anywhere at any time. You could trip, slip or fall anywhere and these types of accidents are the most common. Most of us have tripped or slipped at some time, but have been lucky enough to have damaged nothing but our sense of dignity.
However there are more unlucky individuals who have broken limbs after falling over an obstacle which should not have been in their path, or after tripping on a wet floor, or falling over a broken piece of paving.
On the road you could be the victim of a hit-and-run driver, or you might hit an animal such as a sheep or deer. Perhaps you were injured in an accident while travelling on public transport or you might have been injured at work, and you could have a case to claim negligence on the part of your employer.
There is usually someone who can be held responsible for an accident. For example if you run over a sheep then it would be the farmer’s responsibility as animals should be kept in secure enclosures. In the case of a wild animal the case for compensation may not exist. However, dog owners have a responsibility to control their dogs, so if a dog causes an accident the owner can be held responsible. If you are bitten by a dog, the owner is again responsible.
