Did you know?
Most people know that when it comes to accidents they are entitled to make a claim for compensation for any injuries they have suffered.
However, did you also know that it’s not just accidents that you can make a claim for?
Here at Accident Advice Helpline our Eastbourne accident claim solicitors are able to help you claim compensation for any personal injury you have suffered as a result of someone else’s actions. Such personal injuries may be physical or psychological and they could have occurred as a result of an incident, series of incidents or an actual physical accident.
Take illnesses as an example. This is one of the classic type of cases that our Eastbourne accident claim solicitors deal with every day that do not involve accidents in the strict sense of the word.

If this is the case then our Eastbourne accident claim solicitors will be able to help you make a claim for compensation against the responsible individuals.
You may also have developed a condition after coming into contact with a contaminated area.
Some years ago our Eastbourne accident claim solicitors helped make a claim against a farm after numerous people complained of being unwell. It transpired that everyone reporting symptoms of sickness and diarrhoea and come into contact with the animals in the petting zoo. Although there were signs up explaining it was important to wash your hands after handling the animals, there were no facilities available to do this. Even in the toilets there was no sanitizer or hand soap to disinfect customer hands.
Ultimately, it was this failing in the hygiene process that led to countless people becoming ill, some of them seriously. In this instance our Eastbourne accident claim solicitors were able to demonstrate that the owners of the farm were liable for the sickness bug sweeping its customers as they did not take the proper steps to ensure that such germs could be contained and dealt with. By failing to provide hand washing facilities they were putting the health of all their customers at risk.
