    Accident Solicitor in Heywood

    What if a local accident solicitor in Heywood cannot handle your injury claim?

    Not every solicitor deals with personal injury claims, as this is a highly specialised and complex area of the law. Even law firms that do deal in injury claims do not handle every type of claim because it will depend on the size of the law firm as well as the expert knowledge a solicitor may have to have to handle the claim on a no win no fee basis.

    If you have suffered injuries in an accident that occurred in the Heywood area in the last 3 years and you are having trouble finding the right kind of legal representation locally, why not call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 for honest expert advice. Lines are open 24/7 and you are under no obligation to proceed with a claim.

    Early moves after a fall

    Slips, trips and falls in public places are among the most common types of non-fault accidents and there are councils all over the country who have found themselves at the receiving end of an accident solicitor’s letter asking for compensation on his or her client’s behalf. In older people falls can result not just in prolonged bed rest, which in turn can lead to muscle loss and loss of mobility, but also in loss of confidence, isolation and depression.

    While younger accident victims of falls will heal much faster, complicated fractures in more serious falls can take a long time to heal and will therefore reduce your income, as they are off work for frequent physiotherapy and hospital treatments. Compensation is designed to help accident victims to recover more quickly, financially, psychologically and in terms of regaining their strength and mobility after an accident.

    Walking aids are provided through local council social services, but electric shop-mobiles, a type of motorised wheelchair that allows people who are recovering from an illness or accident to be as independent as possible, have to be paid for privately. Such expenses and money for private medical treatment like psychotherapy for depression, which can be the result of stress and surgery after a severe fall, can also be claimed within the concept of compensation.

    Medical History

    A specialist lawyer or local accident solicitor in Heywood prepared to handle your case on a no win no fee basis will have to assess from the medical history of your case, how much compensation you are entitled to for your injuries and suffering. To prove to the defendant to what extent you were injured and inconvenienced by their negligence, your accident solicitor in Heywood or other legal representative may arrange for an additional medical assessment of your injuries.

    The complexity of injuries often means compensation providers like Accident Advice Helpline have their own in-house specialists dealing in particular types of medical issues such as brain damage after surgery and medical negligence, back pain after lifting far too heavy items in accidents at work or whiplash injuries after road traffic accidents.

    It is for this reason that small local firms are sometimes unable to offer no win no fee services, as they may not have the manpower and expertise. In your search for an accident solicitor in Heywood, call today on 0800 689 0500 to speak to an advisor about your slip, trip or fall accident.
