When you are caught up in an accident that causes you an injury and it was someone else’s fault, it is only right that you should be entitled to some recompense. That is why the team here an Accident Advice Helpline operate a Dacorum accident claims helpline, which helps people like you to claim the compensation that is legally available to you.
What kind of personal injuries can I seek compensation for?
You can claim personal injury compensation for a range of accidents. Here are some of the most common:
Road traffic accidents
It is possible to claim personal injury compensation for road traffic accidents whether you were injured as a vehicle driver, pedestrian or cyclist, providing that the RTA was caused by someone other than yourself.
There are now lots of health and safety regulations which were put in place to protect you in the workplace, and your boss has to strictly adhere to these regulations. If he or she has failed to do so and you were injured as a result you can put in a claim for personal injury compensation.
As well as accidents that take place in the workplace it is also possible to claim workplace injury compensation if you have developed an illness or disease in the workplace. This would include things like asbestosis and industrial deafness.
Slips, trips and falls
If you slip, trip or fall in a public place, workplace, or any other place where blame can be apportioned to a third party, you may be able to claim compensation if you sustain injuries.
No matter how you were injured, it is important that you gather as much proof as possible to help your case for compensation. This could include:
- Photographs of the accident scene
- Written complaints
- Accident logs
- Contact details of witnesses
- Police reports
- Medical evidence
All of these things will help us to build a better case when the time comes to seek compensation.
