Accidents can happen anywhere
Here at Accident Advice Helpline our East Sussex accident claim solicitors have come to the conclusion that accidents can, and invariably do, happen anywhere. That means that in theory nowhere is really safe.
Of course, the last thing our East Sussex accident claim solicitors want to do is turn you into a paranoid recluse who refuses to leave your home for fear of being involved in an accident – if for no other reason than a large proportion of accidents occur within the home environment – we are merely saying this to make you aware. What many people brush off as “one of those things” could well be a lot more serious than that.
Should you claim compensation?
The fact is that for the vast majority of accidents that occur people are injured. It’s all very well just dusting yourself down and vowing to be more careful next time, but if the accident in question was not your fault, then shouldn’t you make a claim for compensation? Of course, the decision is purely a personal one and no one has the right to tell you what to do, but legally speaking you could claim via East Sussex accident claim solicitors.
Many people are opposed to the idea of claiming compensation for fear of what people will think of them. Making money out of an injury seems a little cold hearted and for some perhaps opportunistic. However, it is important not to see making a claim as a way of making money. It isn’t. Well, certainly not the way our East Sussex accident claim solicitors handle it at Accident Advice Helpline!
The point of making a personal injury claim is to receive compensation for your injuries. You may have endured pain as a result of your accident, or had to undergo treatment. You may have had your day to day life disrupted, even if on a short term basis, and all of this should be compensated for.
If you have had to take time off from work to recover then you may be out of pocket due to decreased income or earnings. Perhaps you have missed out on a bonus because you weren’t able to close just a few more sales – if you had been at work, you probably would have done.
You will no doubt have had to undergo medical treatment, and in some situations you may have had to pay for this. Is it fair and right that you have to pay for such treatment out of your own pocket when someone else’s negligence caused your injuries in the first place?
Receiving compensation through our East Sussex accident claim solicitors is not about getting money, it is about rebalancing the wrong that has done to you.
