Making a compensation claim in Wednesbury
If you or a loved one has suffered an accident or injury, you may be wondering if you could obtain compensation by making a compensation claim in Wednesbury. Generally, if the injury which you experienced wasn’t your fault, you can make a compensation claim.
Although the causes of such injuries vary, common instances which give rise to compensation claims often include the following.
Injuries whilst out and about
If you’re out in a public area or on someone else’s property, it can be relatively easy to get hurt. Although it’s often easy to presume it is your own fault, in many cases it isn’t. For example, if you trip over loose paving or are hurt because of poor signage, you may be able to make a compensation claim in Wednesbury.
If you’re on private property when you suffer an injury, the owner of that property is likely to be liable for the harm you’ve suffered. For example, if you get hurt whilst you’re in a shopping mall and it wasn’t your fault, the owners or managers of the mall may be liable. Similarly, if you’re in a public area such as in a park or on the street, the council or local authority may be responsible if you suffer an injury which wasn’t your fault.
Road traffic accidents
If you’re harmed in a road traffic accident and it wasn’t your fault, you may be able to obtain compensation by making a compensation claim in Wednesbury. Although many people assume you must have been driving in order to make a claim, this isn’t always true. Cyclists, passengers and even pedestrians could make a compensation claim in Wednesbury if they were harmed in a road traffic accident which wasn’t your fault.
