Do you need to contact Erskine accident claim experts after being hurt by a collapsed bridge?
When structures,such as bridges and walkways are first built, they are subject to rigorous safety testing. In fact, a significant number of bridges in the United Kingdom have been closed to members of the public because they have failed this safety testing. Once changes to the structures have been made they can be re-tested and opened to the public, providing they are safe.
However, it isn’t enough to simply ensure that they’re safe when they are first built. These types of structures must undergo regular testing and maintenance work. This is to ensure that they remain safe and that no-one is put in unnecessary danger. If, for example, very bad weather was to damage the structure, the owners or company responsible for it may need to close the bridge until a thorough safety assessment can be carried out. If they were to fail to do this and someone was hurt as a result, they could be held responsible. They may even be forced to pay out a significant sum of money in compensation.
If you’ve been hurt because of a collapsed structure such as a bridge or walkway, you may want to contact Erskine accident claim experts in order to make a claim for compensation. When this type of incident occurs, it’s normally relatively easy for accident solicitors to prove that you weren’t at fault. Thus it could be relatively easy for you to obtain compensation for your injuries.
Of course, if you suffered very serious injuries, you may not feel up to making a claim with Erskine accident claim experts straight away. If you’d prefer to wait until you’ve recovered to start your claim, this shouldn’t be a problem. However, you will need to begin your claim within three years of the incident occurring in order to obtain compensation.
