If you have been involved in an accident, or suffered an injury, and feel you may be entitled to compensation, your first reaction might well be to seek out an accident solicitor in Shawhead or nearby.
Why it’s often better to talk to the specialists
Local solicitors need to be able to cover a wide range of different legal areas. So your accident solicitor in Shawhead may be able to help, but are they the expert? Accident Advice Helpline concentrates only on the one that’s important to you – assessing and progressing personal accident claims. We always work on your behalf on a no-win, no-fee* basis.
The three starting points for any claim with an accident solicitor in Shawhead
Whilst a wide range of accidents can be the subject of a claim, there are three key elements to consider. Firstly, there must be an individual, company or organisation who was at fault. So someone else must have caused your accident by their carelessness or negligence. Secondly, it should have taken place within the last three years, although there are some exceptions. Finally, you should either have received medical attention, or have had your injuries assessed by a GP or a hospital following the accident.
Examples of accidents where a claim can be made
You might have been the victim of a work-related repetitive strain injury, or a health and safety issue. Alternatively, you could have suffered when you tripped, slipped or fell. Through no fault of your own, you might have been a driver, passenger or pedestrian who became involved in a road traffic incident.
