What can you make a compensation claim in Tavistock for?

Such incidents can include work places accidents where your employer has a duty of care to ensure that the work environment is, within reason, safe and secure and that all associated equipment and machinery is properly installed and well maintained.
Slips, trips and falls in public places where the owners have a duty of care to ensure that you are kept safe at all time. Any wet floors should be clearly marked, lighting should be appropriate, proper safety precautions should be taken at all times.
Road traffic accidents are also common causes of someone being injured and wanting to make a compensation claim in Tavistock. You could have been the driver of a vehicle that was involved in an accident caused by someone else, the passenger in either vehicle or even a pedestrian or cyclist caught up in events.
What is financial compensation for?
Financial compensation is “awarded” to the injured party in an accident as recompense for the pain and suffering they have had to endure as a result of the injuries they have sustained. It is primarily there to help recover any lost costs associated with your accident and injuries, for example, time off work that has not been covered by sickness pay (you may be in your probation period at work and therefore not entitled to sickness pay, or you may have exceeded your statutory sickness pay limit if your recovery is taking some time). It can also help cover out of pocket expenses associated with your care and rehabilitation, for example, medication, clinical professional assistance, and specialised equipment you wouldn’t normally have required (perhaps a walking stick or wheelchair).
