If you, or a close family member, were injured in an accident which was not your or their fault, then you may be able to file a claim for personal injury compensation. You and your accident solicitor in Burnham-on-Sea (for example), need to be able to prove that the accident and personal injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. It may be clear, in the example of a road traffic accident, of whose fault the accident was (another driver and not you), but in some cases the person or persons responsible for the accident may not be immediately apparent. For example, there may not have been another vehicle involved in your road accident, but perhaps your car or bike hit a pothole and you lost control of the car or bike and you crashed into a tree. Obviously the tree was not to blame for the accident, but the local authority could have been, as it is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of roads.
