    What made you click on the link and open up this article? In the vast majority of cases, people open up this article and read it after searching the phrase accident solicitor in Haddington on the web. Presumably, you need an accident solicitor in Haddington because you’ve sustained an injury that was someone else’s fault, and you live in the town, or somewhere nearby. If that is not the case, perhaps you need an accident solicitor in Haddington because someone you know, maybe a family member, has had an accident that was someone else’s responsibility.

    Taking action

    If you have been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, there may be something you can do about it, depending on the circumstances. First of all, the accident must have occurred within the past three years. That’s because most claims expire after a period of three years has passed. What’s more, it is easier for personal injury specialists to process specific types of claim.

    Accidents at work

    Personal injury specialists can help you process a claim if you have had an accident that happened at work, and there is evidence to suggest that the blame for it lies with your employer. Employers have a legal duty to protect their employees. This is done by making employees aware of all health and safety regulations in the workplace, as well as pointing out all potential dangers and how to avoid them. Employers must also supply safety equipment that is in excellent working order.

    Accidents on the road

    Road traffic accidents are commonplace. If you have been involved in a vehicle collision that was the fault of the other driver, and injured into the bargain, it may be possible to claim against their insurance.

    Accidents out and about

    Sometimes people fall, trip or slip somewhere in a public place. If the accident is a minor one, or you escape unscathed, then you probably won’t want to take action. However, what happens if you sustain a significant injury? If it happens on the street, you could claim against your local authority. If it happens in a shop, bank, or other establishment open to the public, you could possibly claim against the owner’s insurance.
