If you have been involved in a car accident or have had a fall from height then there is every chance that you could be entitled to compensation for head injuries in North Yorkshire. This is because any accident that left you with an injury (whether it was to your head or any other part of your body) which you did not cause entitles you to claim.
When can you claim for compensation for head injuries in North Yorkshire?
Ultimately the type of accident itself is not relevant – all we need to know to be able to pursue a claim for compensation is that the accident was not caused by yourself. Many people can get confused by this, especially if no one else was directly involved in the accident. In such a situation they may believe that as they were the only one present that they must be responsible, but this is not always the case.
Take a situation where you are involved in an accident at work. It may be that you fell from some ladders as you were getting something off a top shelf in the storage room. You may think that as you set up the ladders and you were the only person involved you were to blame.
However, your solicitor, on investigation may determine that the ladders you were using were not fit for purpose (although they were the only ones available to you). Alternatively it may be that you were not shown how to use the ladders properly and therefore, through no fault of your own, you caused the accident.
In either situation the accident would not be your fault as your employer would have been legally liable. Either they did not provide the right equipment, or the right training – both of which fall under their duty of care responsibilities to you as an employee.
