If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Blantyre, then it is possible that you have been in a road accident which was not your fault. You might have been working at the time, as a motorbike courier, or a cabbie, or a sales representative. Did you know that approximately one third of fatal and serious road accidents involve someone who was working at the time of the accident? If someone close to you has suffered a bereavement because of an accident that was not their fault, there may be a case for filing a personal injury compensation claim.
There are many types of road accidents, some fatal, and they occur on British roads every day, (approximately five people die in road accidents every day), although it is estimated that there are fewer accidents now than there were ten years ago. This is perhaps because the “no drinking and driving” campaigns have finally got through to drivers, and because cars are equipped with better safety equipment than before, such as airbags.
There are hit-and-run accidents and you may think that you can’t claim compensation after being involved in an accident with a hit-and-run driver, but you would be wrong. Vehicles can be traced through the Motor Insurers’ Board and the DVLA and even if a driver was driving without insurance it may still be possible to make a claim for personal injury compensation. However, you will need to contact an accident solicitor in Blantyre, or one who works close to where you live.
If you have been involved in an accident with a farm animal such as a cow, pig, sheep, deer or even perhaps an ostrich, then you can make a claim for compensation against the animal’s owner. Owners of animals (all animals) have the responsibility to control them, and that means they should not be on a public highway.
