The team at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help people get the compensation they deserve after they have been involved in accidents that they did not cause. It doesn’t matter if you have had an accident at work or have been involved in a slip, trip or fall in a public place we can help.
However, one of the most common queries we get is people seeking advice about claiming after a car accident in Oxford.
While no accident is ever the same as any other, there are certain types of accidents that are more common than others. As you can imagine there aren’t statistically a lot of people being injured by llamas; however, many people each year are hurt on the roads of the UK.
When such accidents (involving cars, not llamas) are not the injured party’s fault then there may be the opportunity to seek (and ultimately receive) compensation. This is because the law allows for people who have been injured through the actions or negligence of another person to seek justice. Nothing will change the fact that an injury has been caused, but compensation goes some way to recognise what you have been through.
When you think about car accidents there are a number of different ways you can be injured. You might be a passenger, or a driver; it doesn’t matter. You could even be another road user such as a cyclist or pedestrian. You might have been in your car, a friend’s car or you might have been travelling via public transport.
All the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline are concerned with is being able to establish that the accident was not your fault, and therefore compensation is due.
Establishing rights for claiming after a car accident in Oxford
Our advisers will seek to understand what caused the accident and who was to blame. They will also make sure that nothing you did either at the time or immediately before it might have led to the accident or your injuries being made worse. In the case of a car accident this could be driving whilst not wearing a seat belt.
They will also need to establish that the injuries you sustained warrant compensation being granted. This means that you sought medical attention and had some form of disruption following the accident. It might be having treatment or taking time off work.
If you want to find out more and get specific advice on your case call us now. You can phone 0800 689 0500 from a landline or try 0333 500 0993 from a mobile instead.
