Did you know that, if you are in an accident that leads to injury, and the accident was caused by someone else, then you could be eligible to claim compensation through an accident solicitor in Cheshire West and Chester?
It could be an accident that happens anywhere – even in your home or your workplace. It doesn’t have to be out in the high street, involving a paving slab that you trip over, nor does it have to involve a slip on a wet floor in a shopping centre – although of course, we still want to hear from you if something like that has happened to you!
What accidents can you claim for?
You could, in fact, claim for any accident that causes injury to you, and which someone else caused.
The causation aspect doesn’t have to involve something obvious, such as another driver driving their car into yours at a junction and causing you to sustain whiplash. It could be that someone has failed to ensure your safety, perhaps by leaving a wire where you could trip over it. A frayed or torn carpet seam, left unattended, might also cause a trip.
The injuries don’t necessarily have to be severe, either, for an accident solicitor in Cheshire West and Chester to take on your claim. Some people don’t pursue claims because they don’t think their injuries are severe enough – but you could claim for some cuts and bruises, just as you could claim for multiple fractures that put you in hospital for some time.

The key things to be aware of at this stage, if you’re thinking about claiming, are evidence and time.
Claims have to be made within three years of the accident that caused the injury, so it’s important to start as soon as you can. The time limit is extended in the case of an industrial disease claim (which is different from a work accident – think of conditions such as cancer or vibration white finger, which are directly related to the job that someone has done) or where the claimant was a minor at the time of the accident.
It’s also important to gather as much evidence as possible, because the payout received in successful claims is dependent on the pain, suffering and loss of amenity experienced by the victim, as well as the expenses they have incurred.
Keep receipts for expenses such as home help fees, and keep records of the medical treatment you have undergone. These will be helpful to your accident solicitor in Cheshire West and Chester.
