Have you been hurt or injured?
Unfortunately, this time of year can see a drastic increase in the number of injuries and accidents which occur and if you’ve been hurt, you may require help from an accident solicitor Quendale in order to obtain compensation.
With bad weather affecting most parts of the UK, more and more people are struggling to get about and cope with weather conditions. Although travelling can be precarious at any time of the year, bad weather and poor visibility can result in more people being injured. During winter months, many of us choose to rely on public transport rather than drive ourselves, particularly if there is snow and ice on the ground. However, public transport can also be affected by poor weather conditions and there’s no guarantee that your journey will be any quicker or safer.
If you’re hurt whilst travelling, there’s a chance that your injury was caused by someone or something else and it may have been avoidable. In such instances, you may look for an accident solicitor in Quendale because you want to make a claim or discover whether or not you’re eligible to make a claim for compensation.
If you were travelling in your vehicle and you suffered an accident or injury, it’s likely that you will be able to make a claim, providing you weren’t responsible for the incident. If another driver, cyclist or even a pedestrian caused the incident which resulted in your injury then they may be liable for the harm you’ve suffered but an accident solicitor in Quendale will be able to find out who you should make a claim against.
If you were travelling by public transport whilst you were injured, an accident solicitor Quendale may be able to help you make a claim against the company which runs the transport, providing the injury wasn’t your fault. If, however, you work for a travel company and suffer an injury, you may be required to make a claim for an ‘injury at work’ rather than a purely travel related injury. Although it can seem daunting to make a claim against an employer, an accident solicitor in Quendale will be able to reassure you that you won’t face any negative consequences for making a genuine claim for compensation.
Of course, travelling as little as possible is sensible in bad weather but if travel is unavoidable and you do suffer an injury which wasn’t your fault, we’ll be on hand to help you make a claim for compensation should you need to. If you’re unsure whether or not you can make a claim, why not contact us for free no obligation advice? We can help you find out everything you need to know and you won’t need to pay any fees.
