If you drive a bus, a lorry, deliver pizza on a scooter or are a taxi driver, and are injured in an accident while on the road, would this be considered to be an accident at work in South Oxfordshire or a road traffic accident?
That depends on why the accident happened and who caused it, but there could be a problem deciding which it is. That is why you should speak to Accident Advice Helpline to get the opinion of the professionals, and their help with making your claim for compensation.
Was it the brakes failing on your vehicle, or did another driver run into you?
Did you steering go wrong or was it someone shooting the red lights that caused the accident?
There are literally hundreds of reasons why the accident could have happened, and hopefully you were not too badly injured because of it.
If the accident at work in South Oxfordshire was through someone else’s negligence and you suffered injuries that needed medical attention, providing the accident happened some time in the last three years, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim.
The injuries you may sustain in an accident at work in South Oxfordshire
Initially, you may be so shocked after an accident at work in South Oxfordshire, that all you will be concerned about is getting medical treatment. The last thing on your mind will be claiming compensation, but once the shock starts to wear off and what has happened sinks in, then victims start to seriously consider their situation. After all there could be very serious injuries involved, such as:
- Back and spinal injuries
- Facial injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Soft tissue injuries
- Joint injuries
- Internal injuries
- Loss of sight
- Eye injuries
- Broken bones
- Head and brain injuries
Some of these injuries could be life changing, not just for the victim, but for those close to them as well. When making a claim there are so many things to account for, such as:
- Extra medial expenses, such as prescriptions and private medical treatment
- Travel costs to and from medical appointments
- Care costs if you are no longer able to look after yourself
- Home adaption or home moving costs if necessary
- Costs of work you would have done yourself at home such as DIY
- Childcare costs
- Pain and suffering anxiety and stress
- Loss of earnings, past and future
Any coat or loss that has arisen because of the accident can be reclaimed, providing you have kept proof of them
