The Fylde, or Fylde, might not appear to be an accident hotspot, but this coastal plain in Lancashire has its fair share of unfortunate incidents. We have worked on many such cases, and we have helped hundreds of people make compensation claims in Fylde for injuries sustained in accidents that were not their fault.
If you have been injured in Fylde, then you too could be owed thousands of pounds in compensation. That compensation could be used to support you during your recovery period or to pay for specialist medical care that will improve your prognosis for the future. If you are thinking about making a claim, then our experience with accident claims is what you need to maximise your chances of success.
Making compensation claims in Fylde
Most of the compensation claims in Fylde we work on are for accidents in the workplace and road traffic accidents. But it’s important to note that these two types of claim can be linked, for instance if a worker is involved in a car crash on company premises. Slips, trips and falls are also relatively common. We have helped many people to successfully make a claim for compensation for accidents that weren’t their fault.
To bring a claim forward, you must take action within 3 years’ of the incident occurring. Although there are a few exemptions, most claimants are required to take action within this timeframe so it’s essential that you take action quickly.
How much compensation could you receive?
The amount of compensation you receive for your injuries depends on various key factors:
- The extent of your injuries
- Your recovery period from your injuries
- Your prognosis for the future
- The acceleration of any pre-existing medical conditions
These are all ascertained through a medical examination. If necessary, this will be coordinated by your solicitor. Usually, one medical assessment is enough to put a claim forward, but in cases where multiple injuries are sustained a few different specialists may need to be seen.
