If you are desperately trying to find an accident solicitor in Hartlebury in the phone book, or typing accident solicitor Hartlebury into the search box in your browser, then you have probably been involved in an accident. If the accident was not your fault then you could be entitled to claim compensation for it. Perhaps you were involved in a road accident, or had an accident at work.
Compensation for injury claims
Any accident solicitor in Hartlebury or elsewhere, will inform you that you can claim compensation for any injury that was not your fault. You will need to be able to prove that the accident was, in some way caused by negligence on the part of another person, your employer, for example, in the case of an accident at work.
You will also need to have had medical treatment as soon as humanly possible after the accident and not simply have carried on working. If you had an accident at work it should have been logged in the appropriate book, along with the date, time and the names of witnesses. Management should have been informed as should your shop steward, if you are a member of a Trades Union.
Any claim for compensation for a personal injury sustained in an accident or any work-related illness should be lodged within three years of the accident or the initial diagnosis of a work-related illness.
There are many work-related illnesses, ranging from cancers caused by working with asbestos or other dangerous materials, to work-related upper limb disorders, vibration white finger and repetitive strain injury. If you have served in the armed forces, you could be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, particularly if you served in a war zone. You are entitled to claim compensation for any of these illnesses which were a result of your working environment. To claim compensation you will have to show medical evidence and may be asked by your solicitor to have a further medical examination which will support your case.
