    Compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK


    Compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK

    Compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases have to follow a strict set of criteria set out by the legal system in the UK. It is always a good idea to have a legal expert lead you through this system to ensure that your case runs smoothly and that you get all the compensation that you deserve.

    If you are in the situation that you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you would be advised to call Accident Advice Helpline. We are a large firm with vast experience in what compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases require and how they should be conducted properly. However, you do not need to be concerned that this sort of advice will require huge upfront legal costs – all Accident Advice Helpline personal injury cases are handle on a no win no fee basis.

    What compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases need

    Compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases need some fairly obvious things if they are to succeed. Firstly, there has to be an injured person — that may be you. Then there has to have been an accident that was someone else’s fault. If there is no injury and no one is to blame for the accident, then there cannot be a compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK case.

    The next stage is to supply the evidence of the above things. Your Accident Advice Helpline personal injury lawyer will guide you through every step of providing that evidence.

    Evidence in compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases

    The first set of evidence is to prove that you have been injured. Your statement and any photographs you can provide of your injuries is a good start, but your personal injury lawyer will probably want to support this with further evidence. You will be asked to provide a comprehensive list of all the treatment that you have received and where you received this treatment.

    This is to allow your personal injury lawyer to access your medical notes if they need to. Compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases include psychological injuries, so don’t forget any treatment that you have received for symptoms such as anxiety and depression as well. Then there are physiotherapy and chiropractic treatments that you may have also had. Finally, list the medication, such as painkillers, that you are having to take.

    Who was to blame?

    The second set of evidence is about the accident and will be used to show who was to blame. In compensation for unexpected injuries in the UK cases, it is the person who was to blame for the accident that pays the compensation, so this is a vital part of the claim. Ideally, you will have some photographs of the accident scene, or at least a sketch.

    It is also a good idea to get some witness statements from people who saw the accident. You may be asked about the weeks or months leading up to the accident if you were injured in the workplace. You may need to report whether you were given any training or supervision for the task that caused you to be injured.
