Have you suffered hand or arm injuries?
If you’re involved in an accident, it’s not uncommon to sustain injuries to your hands or arms. If you fall over, for example, you may try and put your hands out to stop you hitting your head. Whilst you may avoid sustaining a serious head injury, you could suffer harm to your hands, wrists or arms instead.
Fortunately, most of these types of injuries aren’t life-threatening but you may require medical assistance. Broken fingers or a fractured wrist, for example, will require treatment at your nearest hospital and you may need to wear a cast for quite some time so that the bone can heal properly.
Following an accident, you may want to consider the possibility of taking legal action. However, you’ll only be able to make an East Dorset no win no fee accident claim if you weren’t responsible for your injuries.
Making an East Dorset no win no fee accident claim
As you’ll need to prove that someone or something else caused your injuries in order to make a claim, you may need to present supporting evidence. When making an East Dorset no win no fee accident claim, for example, you may want to include photographs of your injuries or the scene of the incident.
If anyone else saw the incident occur and they’re willing to provide a witness statement, this could also help you to secure compensation following the incident.
Did you obtain medical help?
Before you’ll be considered eligible to make an East Dorset no win no fee accident claim, you’ll need to have received treatment for your injuries. Whilst it’s sensible to obtain medical help after any type of accident, you’ll need to have received some kind of medical assistance if you plan on making a claim.
However, this doesn’t mean that you must have sustained serious injuries in order to warrant making a compensation claim. Receiving a prescription for pain medication or being referred for physiotherapy, for example, could be enough to satisfy the eligibility criteria.
