5 Most Common Claims for Compensation
If you suffer an accident which causes you to be injured, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. Your compensation is given for the physical and mental trauma you have experienced as a result of your injury.
It also allows you to make a claim to receive any money you have had to outlay as a result of your injury. Accident Advice Helpline deals with a range of compensation claims and have specialist solicitors who are highly qualified and trained in specific areas.
Accidents at Work
An accident at work could happen for a number of reasons, including a slippery surface, lack of proper protection equipment or an obstacle which has caused you to trip. If you have had an accident at work and your employer or another individual is at fault for your injury, you can make a compensation claim in Royston. Your employer has a duty of care for your health and safety in the workplace and if they have not adhered to this, they should accept liability for your injury.
Road Traffic Accidents
A road traffic accident can include a collision with another driver, whether as a driver yourself, passenger or even pedestrian. If you have been involved in a road traffic accident and it has left you with an injury which required medical assistance, you may be eligible to make a compensation claim in Royston. Road traffic accidents can be very serious, but even if your injury is seemingly minor, you can still make a claim.
Slips, Trips, and Falls
Slips, trips and falls are commonplace, both in the workplace and public domain. There are many people who fall in the street due to an uneven payment, for instance, but fail to ever make a compensation claim in Royston.
If you have been left with an injury as a result of this kind of accident, you are entitled to make a claim, as long as you are sure that someone else was to blame.
If you have received faulty products and they have caused an accident, for instance, a leaky washing machine which has caused you to slip, you can make a claim for compensation.
You would either make the complaint against the manufacturer or trader, depending on who is at the heart of the cause of the faulty product. These claims are more common than you would think and can help to protect others from similar injuries in the future.
Criminal injuries are common compensation claims and are caused when someone has been injured through a violent crime. As long as you were blameless in the attack and have had to seek medical attention as a result, you can make a compensation claim in Royston.
