Accident solicitor in Hanley
If you have suffered a personal injury as a result of an accident which was not your fault, you probably have a case to claim compensation. After sustaining any injury, you should have medical treatment of course. The sooner you have this after your accident, the better your claim for compensation will be if you decide to pursue a personal injury claim.
If you want to find out if you have grounds for a compensation claim you may well be perusing your local telephone directory for an accident solicitor in Hanley, or typing accident solicitor in Hanley in the search box on your personal computer. You may have been bitten by a dog, fallen or tripped, or been in a road accident and suffered a whiplash injury. These are some of the common accidents that befall us on a daily basis. You can claim for any personal injury which was not your fault.
Dog bites can occur if you have to go into other people’s homes as part of your daily work. For example, you could be reading a meter, doing some plumbing or electrical work or you may be a postman delivering mail and a dog is outside the house. The owners of the dog are responsible for the behaviour of their pet and have a responsibility towards people who are on their premises in pursuit of their legal business. You should report a dog bite to the police or the local authority, as if a dog bites once, it is likely to do so again and it could attack a child. Whether you seek compensation for such a bite is of course, up to you, but a bite should be reported.
You should wash any wound made by a dog bite under warm running water and remove any fur or dirt that may infect the wound. Afterwards, go to your doctor or a local hospital. This is necessary if you intend to claim compensation.
