At Accident Advice Helpline, we’re often asked what kinds of accidents people could make claims for. Basically, as long as they were caused by someone else and they led to injury, the victim of the accident could be eligible to claim through an accident solicitor in Gelligaer.
But just in case you’re not entirely sure what accidents people claim for, read on. Below, there are some examples of incidents that have led to claims.
Slips, trips and falls
If there’s one category of accident that’s well known to people, it’s probably this. An example of this kind of incident might be:
A person walks through a shopping precinct, where there has been a recent spillage. The spilled liquid was cleaned up with a mop, but there is still a slick patch on the floor – and no warning sign. The person slips and falls, breaking their ankle.
An accident solicitor in Gelligaer might deal with many such claims every year.
Road traffic accidents
Another well-known one is the road traffic accident, and perhaps the most common result is a whiplash injury. Whiplash can be caused at even very low speeds, so if you were rear-ended by another car at some traffic lights, when you were stationary and the other car was doing 5 mph, you might suffer an injury and you could be eligible to claim.
This is more about where it happens, rather than the kind of accident – you could have a road traffic accident at work (if you drive as part of your job), or a slip and fall. The key thing here is that your employer could be at fault – they have a duty to provide you with a safe working environment.
You could even put in a claim for an injury that happened during a game of sports. Whether it’s a contact sport, such as rugby, or a watersport, such as surfing, you could be eligible to claim, provided you fulfil the criteria.
