If you are injured in a road traffic accident that was the fault of someone else, you are probably entitled to make a personal injury claim compensation. If your injuries were severe enough to need medical attention, and the accident took place no more than 3 years ago, you should be talking to an accident solicitor in Frome who will be able to let you know if you qualify to make a claim.
The results of road traffic accidents
Road traffic accidents are a common occurrence on UK roads, and they can involve vehicles of all different types, including cyclists, pedestrians, tractors and horses. There does not have to be a motor attached to them to be involved in an accident, or for them to be the cause of one.
Very serious injuries can result from road traffic accidents, and an average of 5 people a day die in them. The injuries some victims sustain alter their lives forever, and the lives of those close to them.
There is a legal right to compensation for innocent victims of any type of accident, and this can be obtained by making a personal injury claim with help from an accident solicitor in Frome.
The severity of the injuries, how they have impacted on the life of the victim and the prognosis for the future will all be accounted for when a claim is made, but that is not all that will be considered.
Claiming back the cost of expenses with an accident solicitor in Frome
Accidents and injuries always bring extra expenses with them, no matter if it is a road traffic accident or some other type of accident you are injured in. Also, if you are employed, to compound the situation, you could be losing income as well.
No-one ever thinks that they will need a carer, but you might after an accident, even if it is just for a few weeks until you are on the road to recovery. You could need help with the children or in doing jobs around the home, such as cleaning or gardening. There stands a good chance that you will need extra medication, even if it is just painkillers, and they have to be paid for.
There is a whole host of things that you could suddenly have to find money for, that were totally unexpected and unplanned for. This can put a huge financial strain on what could already be a reduced income, but an accident solicitor in Frome could help you to recoup these costs.
You will have to prove you have had to pay these expenses though, and you should keep receipts for every little thing you have to spend.
