If you think that no one suffers personal injuries in Teddington, think again. Hazards can be found everywhere – in shops and offices, on the roads, on Teddington Lock and in Teddington Railway Station.
If you are considering making a claim for a personal injury suffered in Teddington, you may have many questions running through your head. At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that personal injury law can be very confusing and this is why we have provided answers to some of the most common questions presented to our expert claims advisers:
Can I claim for any type of accident?
We can help you to claim compensation for a wide variety of accidents, illnesses and injuries, including:
• Accidents at work
• Accidents on the roads
• Accident in public places
• Industrial diseases
Do I need to provide evidence to support my claim?
For your claim to be successful, you must be able to prove the following:
• You were owed a duty of care
• An individual or company acted negligently and failed to observe their duty of care
• You suffered an accident, injury or illness as a result of their negligent actions
You will need to prove the value of your claim by obtaining medical evidence to substantiate the nature and extent of the injuries you have suffered. You will also need to gather evidence of any financial losses and expenses you have encountered.
Do I need to hire an accident solicitor in Teddington ?
You can make your own case for personal injury compensation. However, you would need to source funding for your claim and pay for costs such as medical examinations and police reports. You would then need to claim back these expenses from the guilty party upon winning your case.
Personal injury law is a complex area and your claim will usually be put to the guilty party’s insurance company. Insurance companies have significant experience of dealing with compensation claims and will have the expertise needed to defend your claim.
If you let a national law firm such as Accident Advice Helpline handle your claim, you will receive help from an accident solicitor in Teddington. Your solicitor will specialise in the area of law most relevant to your case and this means that you will grant yourself the best possible chance of receiving the compensation you deserve.
