If you have to use compensation solicitors in Hexworthy, there could be various accidents that were not your fault that have caused you injuries that needed medical attention. As an innocent victim of an accident, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Here are some examples of accidents that could happen to you.
Road traffic accidents
Our solicitors in Hexworthy have to deal with road traffic accidents all of the time. One of the most common injuries that can occur from this type of accident is whiplash.
This condition can be disabling and very painful. If you visit your doctor with a whiplash injury, the only problem is that there are no known tests available. They diagnose it by you informing them you have been in an accident and explaining to them your symptoms.
A slip, trip or fall
A slip, trip or fall accident happens to a lot of people all over the UK every year; in fact, it is one of the most common accidents to happen. Tripping over a pavement in the street may sound quite minor, but it could actually be quite serious. What if you knocked your head or broke a limb? In this case, it does sound like it could be serious. What if you had a fall from a great height because of a broken railing? This could even end up being fatal.
A workplace accident
Every employer has a legal responsibility to ensure the health and safety of their staff while they are in the workplace, and in fairness the majority of bosses do just that.
The main difference with the workplace is that they are not always one-off accidents — the injury can be caused by ongoing factors. There are long-term illnesses and conditions they should have measures in place to prevent, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and industrial deafness.
Asbestos exposure is another long-term problem, as the effects of this can take up to 40 years to manifest themselves.
