Types of accidents you can claim for
If you have been involved in an accident that you do not think was your fault then you could be entitled to seek compensation. This may seem simple enough, but some people remain uncertain precisely what sort of accidents they can seek compensation for.
Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we don’t think that the process of claiming should be a mystery that only those with a law degree and years of experience can understand. This is why we have put together some information to help you know what you can claim for.
Accidents at work
You may be entitled to make a claim for compensation if you have been injured in an accident at work if it can be demonstrated that the accident was your employer’s fault. If they have not followed procedures and policies and have left you, and potentially other members of staff, exposed to risk, they are likely to be found to be liable.
Accidents in public places
Those responsible for public places such as shops, cafes and other venues have a duty of care to ensure that their premises are clean and safe for members of the public (as well as their staff). If they fail in this duty and an accident solicitor in Cumbria can demonstrate this, then there is a good chance that you can claim compensation against them.
Road traffic accidents
If you have been involved in a road traffic accident, you could also make a claim if the accident was not your fault. It does not matter if you were a driver of one of the vehicles involved or a passenger. You might even have been injured as a pedestrian. Whatever the situation, if you are not to blame then you can make a claim.
