One of the questions we’re most often asked at Accident Advice Helpline is: what types of accidents do we work with? It’s a good question and one you should always ask when seeking out a lawyer.
The answer is that we can cope with just about any type of accident, but it’s still worth investigating how different types of accidents tend to be treated.
Road traffic accident
These are perhaps one of the more common types of accidents that we deal with and with so many cars on the roads these days it’s hardly surprising. Often, when you have a shunt it is down to at least one of you making a mistake and the costs of damages will be paid by the insurance company of the person deemed to be responsible. Naturally, few people want to lose their no claims bonus so they will work hard to ensure that they are not held responsible.
If you are in a road traffic accident, it’s important to make sure there is as much information about events as possible. If you’re confident that you were not at fault for the accident, you will want more information to be laid before the court as this will increase your chances of a positive outcome.
This is another common accident and one that can be delicate. If you’re claiming compensation in Daventry for something that happened at work you may be concerned that the case could harm your prospects with the company, but don’t worry. By law it is forbidden for any employer to sack or take action against an employee because of a claim taken against them. If you feel you are being discriminated against because of a claim you have a right to take further action against them.
Claims against the council
Many people slip or fall in the street because of things the council could have done to address safety issues. When this happens you can mount a claim against the local authority. As the body tasked with overseeing public spaces it has a duty to ensure that they are as safe as possible, and if they fall down on that duty you will be able to make a claim against them.
