Ask an accident solicitor in Heysham how compensation can aid your recovery
What an accident solicitor in Heysham would explain to a claimant, is that the legal concept of compensation for victims of accidents has more to do with helping non-fault accident victims than with punishing a negligent party. Although a successful personal injury claim for compensation will allow victims to feel a measure of justice has been achieved, the overall aim of compensation is to speed up recovery and to allow victims to get back on their feet, both health wise and financially.
Although not all accident solicitors will deal with every type of injury claim, larger law firms such as Accident Advice Helpline for example will have specialist legal partners who can tackle any type of valid claim. If you think your accident was the fault of somebody’s negligence and your accident happened in the Heysham area in the last 3 years, you can contact Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 (mobile) and speak to an adviser.
They may even be able to find you an accident solicitor in Heysham or will assign your claim to a specialist better suited to your type of claim. There is no obligation to proceed and starting your claim won’t cost any money upfront.
Regaining strength and mobility after slips, trips and falls
Among the most common types of non-fault accidents are slips, trips and falls in public places. Uneven pavement, broken paving stones, open manhole covers, water surfaces in public buildings where warning notices should have been displayed, these are all scenarios where people may fall and get hurt because somebody did not organise repairs and maintenance when they should have done.
Older men and women, although perfectly healthy otherwise, will take far longer to regain their strength and mobility after just ten days of bed rest. They can experience significant loss of muscle mass and with that follows loss of the mobility necessary to perform everyday tasks.
Compensation providers like Accident Advice Helpline can help your mother or father to pay for private physiotherapy treatment or special equipment like the hire of shop-mobiles while your elderly parent is recovering after a slip, trip or fall. Home carers may be necessary to look after your parent while you are out at work, all this costs money and compensation was designed to help with such expenses.
Making an injury claim
As long as your accident was caused by somebody else and happened within the last 3 years, you are entitled to make a claim. An accident solicitor Heysham or other specialist lawyer will ask the defendant to pay compensation for your injuries and suffering, but also for any loss of income and any expenses you incurred. You can visit Accident Advice Helpline’s website and complete their simple 30-second test to see if you qualify. A compensation calculator will give you an estimate how much compensation you might be entitled to.
