Here at Accident Advice Helpline our East Staffordshire accident claim solicitors are all experts in their field. This means that if you find yourself injured as a result of the actions of another person, whether this be directly or indirectly, then our East Staffordshire accident claim solicitors team could help you make a claim for compensation against the liable party.
So, what do we mean by directly or indirectly? Our East Staffordshire accident claim solicitors explain.
If someone directly caused your accident then they will have been present at the time. For example, you may be involved in a road traffic collision which was caused as a result of a drink driver not paying attention to what they were doing. In this case the drunk driver would be directly responsible for your accident and resulting injuries. Our East Staffordshire accident claim solicitors team will be able to make a claim for compensation against them, via their insurance provider, as it would have been their actions, at that time, which caused the accident.
If someone has indirectly caused your accident then it may be that they were not present at the time of the accident or the injury. In fact, it may even be the case that you have never met this person, yet our East Staffordshire accident claim solicitors team will be able to make a claim for compensation against them if they were found to be liable. For example, you may be in a restaurant and on your way to the bathrooms you trip over a loose bit of flooring. The person who is responsible for the premises would be liable for that accident. It may be that the owner of the restaurant is responsible for the premises, or perhaps they rent or lease it from another individual who is ultimately responsible. In this way the owner, whom you have never met, could be liable if they failed to take the necessary steps to ensure that the property was safe.
It can be confusing
As you can see establishing liability for an accident occurring can be a complicated process, and as a result it can seem very confusing.

This is because solicitors have the necessary experience, contacts and understanding of the law to be able to do your claim justice.
