Many people injured in construction accidents in Goole that were not their fault do not understand their rights under law and are often afraid to make a claim because of feeling like a fraud. Being injured in an accident that was not your own fault means that you are entitled, by law, to make a compensation claim through a personal injury lawyer.
This is so that you can not only receive compensation for your injuries and any lost wages and expenses that have been created as a result; but also to bring to justice the people responsible and make them liable for their actions.
Starting a claim for construction accidents in Goole
New legislation means that there is no longer legal aid available for accident victims. Accident Advice Helpline offer a no-win, no-fee policy that will mean that should you lose there will be no fees liable to be paid.
One of the things that people are concerned about when considering making a compensation claim through a personal injury lawyer is having their injuries assessed by a professional. In some cases the records from your GP may be enough but often we will need to refer you to a medical practitioner to get an independent review. There is no need to be concerned about this as they are there to help with your claim and will give an honest report and ask you about your symptoms and how you are being affected by your injury.
There are normally four steps to getting your medical report completed:
- You will be notified in writing of the details of your appointment. It is important to notify them if you cannot attend as this may affect your claim.
- You will be asked for permission for the chosen medical practitioner to have access to your medical records.
- You attend your assessment with the chosen doctor who will be a member of the General Medical Council.
- A medical report will be produced following your assessment.
