People who suffer particularly nasty injuries to one of their legs might find that they are told to use a wheelchair for a period of time to help the healing process along. For many people this will be a major inconvenience, perhaps having an impact on their ability to do their job or carry out everyday activities. You might also find that you may have trouble gaining access to buildings that did not provide disabled access. You may find that the disabled access at some buildings leaves something to be desired, so much so in fact that some facilities might even put you at risk of being further injured in an accident that was not your fault. If this were to happen to you, there will be a possibility that you might be able to take some form or another of 100% no win no fee personal injury compensation against the owner of the building in question. Before doing so though, it will be in your interests to seek out some advice on personal injury claims in Weymouth and Portland.
Wheelchair accidents and advice on personal injury claims in Weymouth and Portland
Imagine that you had an appointment for a meeting in a large office block while you were temporarily confined to a wheelchair. You arrive in plenty of time, anticipating that your current predicament might mean that it will take you longer to get to where you need to go. You use a wheelchair ramp which looks as though its maintenance is not a high priority of the building’s owners. While making your way up, one of the wheels on your wheelchair hits an imperfection on the surface of the ramp, causing you to be thrown out of your seat and onto the ground, suffering some rather nasty injuries in the process. Under these circumstances, there will be a chance that you might be able to make claim for 100% no win no fee personal injury compensation.
