If you are searching for an accident solicitor in Highclere and Woolton Hill, or anywhere else in Hampshire, then there are a few facts you might like to know about claiming compensation for a personal injury.
Facts about personal injury claims
1 You have grounds to make a claim for compensation for injuries which you sustained in an accident which was not your fault. It is important that you can show that you were in no way to blame for the accident.
2 You can claim for an injury which was a result of an accident for which you were not to blame at any time within three years of the date of the accident.
3 There are some accidents which appear to be no one’s fault, but they always are, even if the person who could be deemed responsible was not at the scene of the accident.
4 Every accident and injury is different so any guide to the amount you could get in compensation for your injuries is an estimate only. For example you can take the thirty second test on Accident Advice Helpline’s website and get an estimate of the amount of compensation you could get for your injury.
5 You receive compensation for the pain, distress and suffering caused as a result of the injury as well as loss of earnings if you have to stop work for however long. You can also claim for medical expenses and other expenses related to your injury but you should keep receipts if you want to claim for these.
Occupational health problems
You may not have had an accident, but you could have been diagnosed with a work-related or occupational illness. You can also claim for such illnesses as long as you can show that they were not your fault. For example if you were provided with protective gloves, and wore them, but still contracted vibration white finger, then the gloves were inadequate protection and you would have grounds to proceed with a claim for compensation.
If your employer ignored the health and safety regulations for people working with computers and you developed repetitive strain injury, then you have grounds for a compensation claim.
