Many people think that they can only make a claim for personal injury following an accident in a public place or on the road, but there are other circumstances that warrant a claim. If your accident happened in work or was the result of an attack by a person or animal, you can also make a compensation claim.
All that is needed to claim is proof that the accident was not your fault. If for instance you fall foul of a drunken group on the streets and suffer an accident as result of being pushed, bullied or even attacked, and you have proof that this is what caused your accident, then you can make a claim. Making a compensation claim in Wareham need not be difficult — there are plenty of local solicitors who can help you, or you can look for a nationally based organisation.
When can you claim?
Basically, the law allows you to make a claim for any injury arising from an accident that you have suffered that was not your fault. All you need to prove is that it happened within the last three years (sometimes longer if it was an accident in work), that the injury was a result and that you received medical attention as a result.
You will need to provide details of the accident (when and how it happened), witness details and any reports that were created as a result by police, employers or insurance companies. Just because you have claimed insurance for your accident, that does not mean that you are not entitled to compensation for your injuries.
