If you live in Houghton Regis you may be thinking of making a compensation claim in Houghton Regis. You may have been injured in an accident that was no fault of yours, or perhaps you have had or have an illness that was caused by another person’s negligence. Such an illness could be a work-related one, or perhaps while you were in hospital you were infected with MRSA, one of the so-called superbugs which have become resistant to traditional antibiotics.
Compensation claim in Houghton Regis
If you want to begin a compensation claim in Houghton Regis, your first move should be to find an experienced accident solicitor or personal injury solicitor. You will need to find one who has the expertise you need to deal with the type of accident you have had.
If you want to make an injury claim in Houghton Regis, or elsewhere in the UK, you need an experienced solicitor who has had satisfied clients who had the same type of accident as yours. If, for example you had a road accident, you would not be well-advised to seek out the services of a solicitor who specialises in dealing with clinical negligence cases.
Unfortunately drivers are not as careful about cyclists as they should be. If you have been injured while riding your bicycle then you may be able to make an injury claim in Houghton Regis or one based in any other location in the UK.
If your front wheel hit a pothole, for example, and you were injured, despite wearing the appropriate protective gear, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation from the local authority which is responsible for the maintenance of roads and pavements.
If you have been knocked off your bike by either a driver or their passenger when they opened a door as you were passing, you may be able to claim compensation from the driver’s insurance company.
You can claim compensation for your injury and the pain, distress and suffering caused as well as for damage to personal property – your bicycle for example. If you had to take time off work because of your injury you can also receive compensation for loss of earnings. You will also receive money to cover medical treatment (both past and future), and expenses incurred because of your injuries, although you will have to keep receipts.
