What kind of information does an accident solicitor in Bradford-on-Avon need from you?
If you live in the Bradford-on-Avon area and have suffered personal injuries in an accident that was caused by somebody else’s negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation, provided your accident occurred within the last 3 years.
An accident solicitor in Bradford-on-Avon or other legal specialist will need the names and contact details of everyone involved in your accident, including the names of potential witnesses.
You must prove to the defendant (the other party) that their actions lead directly to your accident and injuries. You must also provide details of your injuries. Some solicitors will arrange for independent medical assessments which aim to support your claim.
Broken dreams and fractures bones
If you slipped and fell awkwardly on watery surfaces, where a warning sign should have been put up in your local supermarket or library, you may have suffered a fracture. A simple or closed fracture is an easily treatable break that usually heals quickly as there is little damage to the surrounding tissue. However, an open or compound fracture is a complicated break, where the bone typically breaks through the skin and damages tissue. Such breaks, combined with a comminuted fracture, where the bone splits into several pieces, take a long time to heal.
You may not ever be able to take that promotion you wanted, if your arm is left with a permanent weakness after such a complicated fracture. Compensation claims are designed to allow for loss of present as well as future earnings. If you are forced to take on less well paid work because of the injuries you suffered in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, your accident solicitor in Bradford-on-Avon can include such a loss of income in your compensation claim.
You may be looking forward to a substantial amount of money. You’ll need to supply your accident solicitor in Bradford-on-Avon with proof of your current income and an estimate of how much you would have earned, if you hadn’t been forced to abandon your hopes of promotion.
