There are many reasons why you might need the services of an accident solicitor in Christchurch, and all have something in common: you were in an accident in which you got injured, and which was caused by someone else.
Slips, trips and falls
This is a common group of accidents. You might already be thinking of someone slipping on a patch of ice on a public footpath, or on a polished floor in a shopping centre. The path, of course, should have been gritted – and a sign should have been put up to warn people about the slippery floor in the shopping centre.
In such cases, it could be the local council’s responsibility – or if the shopping centre is privately owned, the owner of the centre. It doesn’t matter who was responsible, though – the main thing is, you weren’t!
Road traffic accidents
An accident solicitor in Christchurch will deal with numerous claims for injuries sustained in road traffic accidents every year – they are very common, and perhaps the most common injury is whiplash.
Whether you got whiplash in a low-speed collision or you ended up in intensive care with multiple fractures and a serious head injury, you could claim for your road traffic accident if the other driver caused it.
Work accidents may involve the above two examples, if you were to slip and fall at work or you drive as part of your job – but there are also cases where people are injured by faulty machinery or where they suffer a stress-related illness through being bullied.
Employers should ensure that their employees have a safe working environment, and they should be covered by employer’s liability insurance, which will take care of the costs incurred by any claim against them.
That’s not all an accident solicitor in Christchurch will deal with
There is much more that a solicitor could encounter, of course – there are sports injuries, industrial diseases, faulty product accidents, holiday incidents…the list goes on!
Whatever has happened to you, just realise this: you could claim compensation if you have been in an accident that led to injury, and the accident was caused by someone else.
