    Compensation in Kent

    Personal Injury Solicitors in Kent

    If you were the victim of an accident that wasn’t your fault and your accident occurred within the last 3 years, you are entitled to make a personal injury claim for compensation.

    You could start ringing several law firms locally or search the Internet for accident solicitors in Kent, but the quickest way by far is to simply contact Accident Advice Helpline.

    Their adviser will tell you if you qualify for making a claim and if so, how much compensation you can expect to receive, when you make a compensation claim in Kent with an accident solicitor.

    What types of accident are covered?

    Accident Advice Helpline legal partners cover areas such as:

    • Accidents at work, including industrial disease
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Road traffic accidents

    These are just some examples where a claim for personal injury compensation in Kent might be handled by one of their legal partners.

    What is a non-fault accident?

    If you went for an after dinner walk along the cliff tops on a stroll from Ramsgate to Broadstairs at the Kentish coast and you slipped and fell because you had too much beer with your curry, you would not be able to claim compensation.

    However, if you went to Broadstairs Library to use one of their computers and you received a substantial electric shock and fell off your chair, dislocating your shoulder in the process, you could make a compensation Kent claim against the local council responsible for the maintenance of all electrical equipment at the library.

    If you attended the annual summer carnival in Ramsgate Harbour and an over-enthusiastic member of the carnival committee – in his guise as Neptune – accidentally impaled you with a wooden swordfish that turned out tougher than it looked, you could claim compensation for your injury.

    However, if you drove to work in Maidstone and had a car accident because you were too busy shaving instead of keeping both hands on your steering wheel, you would not be able to make a personal injury claim.

    What does a claim for compensation in Kent cover?

    Your accident solicitor would ask on your behalf for money that covers your pain and suffering, any loss of income during your recovery and reimbursement for any expenses you might have paid as a direct result of your accident, such as traveling to and from hospital or your GP’s surgery or hiring mobility equipment to enable you to get around your own home during your recovery or engaging a home carer to help with household chores like cooking, shopping and gardening, while you are trying to get your health back on track.
