The East Renfrewshire town of Barrhead lies just eight miles from Glasgow city centre. Once a major manufacturing centre, there was a tannery, iron foundry, porcelain works and various other factories here. Today, with the decline of industry, Barrhead has become a commuter town for those working in Glasgow and Paisley, and at the time of the 2001 census the town was home to 19,813 people. If you’ve been injured in an accident whilst living or working here then you might want to find a lawyer to make a Barrhead no-win, no-fee* claim for personal injury compensation. Accident Advice Helpline covers the whole of the UK and our team of experienced lawyers can help you to get the compensation you deserve on a 100% no-win, no-fee* basis.
What sort of injuries could you claim Barrhead no-win, no-fee* compensation for?
In the past we have handled Barrhead no-win, no-fee* compensation claims for injuries ranging from minor to serious. But some types of injuries are definitely more common than others and here are a few of the most common injuries that we have handled claims for:
- Whiplash (usually sustained in a road traffic accident)
- Back injuries from manual handling
- Forklift injuries such as broken bones in the feet, broken toes and crush injuries
- Head injuries such as concussion after a fall from height
- Broken bones such as a broken ankle after a slip or trip or a broken arm from an industrial accident
- Eye injuries such as scratches to the eye from flying debris in a factory
Many of these injuries could be avoided if proper precautions were taken – and if you have been injured in a workplace accident it is important to ask yourself if there was more your employer could have done to prevent your accident from happening.
Why should you make a personal injury claim?
No matter how careful you are, you could be injured if somebody else is negligent, whether that somebody else is your employer, another driver or the owner of a public place like a supermarket or restaurant. If you’re injured then you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence, and an injured person can often suffer financial losses as well as physical injuries and emotional distress. It’s not just you who will be affected by your injuries, your family can be impacted too, especially if you need to take time off work and you are not being paid your usual salary. Making a personal injury claim with us can help you out at a difficult time.
