    Bournemouth law firm

    If you’re looking for a Bournemouth law firm, there is one question you should be asking yourself more than any other. Which one is best for my type of accident?

    There is a misconception that personal injury law is more or less the same wherever you look. This is not the case. In fact, the skills your lawyer will need may vary greatly depending on what type of accident you have suffered. So it’s not just a question of finding a Bournemouth law firm, but someone who has the right skills for the job. To illustrate, here are three of the more common claims you might find yourself making.

    Road traffic accidents: with so many people on the roads these days the only surprise is that we do not have more accidents happening than we do. Often where there is a crash someone is at fault and any damages will be paid for out of their insurance policy.
    Complications happen when it’s not easy to see who was at fault and both sides decide to contest it. If this happens you’ll need plenty of evidence and the services of an expert who’ll know how to give you the best possible chance of getting a win.

    Accidents in the street: Normally these are the responsibility of the local authority who will be tasked with keeping the streets safe. If they have fallen down on their duty they may be liable to pay out compensation. To give you the best chance of winning it’s a good idea to find a Bournemouth law firm who specialises in claims against the council.

    Workplace injuries: When we’re at work employers are obliged to make sure we’re as safe as possible, but with margins tight, things occasionally get missed. If you claim against your employer you’ll want to know what your rights are and how to make a claim without harming your future employment prospects.
