Christmas is not always the relaxing and stress-free time that we all hope that it will be. In fact, law firms like Accident Advice Helpline find themselves dealing with many Christmas related accidents at this time of year as people realise that they are going to have to start Christmas injury cases. They contact Accident Advice Helpline because they have been injured in accidents that were not their own fault. Some of these accidents are related to the increase in road journeys, shopping trips and days out that take place in December.
Road traffic accidents
Christmas involves a lot of travelling for many of us. We may travel considerable distances to be with family and friends over the holiday period. We travel to the shops to buy Christmas gifts and to pubs, clubs and restaurants for festive get-togethers. The roads can become very congested particularly at peak times when Christmas shoppers are out and about at the same time as commuters are travelling to and from work. For the unlucky few that are injured in road traffic accidents that were not their fault at least there is something that they can do about it.
They can call Accident Advice Helpline at any time of the day or night and discuss starting a road traffic accident case. You actually have three years to make a claim so it doesn’t matter if you did not start proceedings over the Christmas period. Accident Advice Helpline will handle your case on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis.
Work based accidents
The Christmas tree can be the cause of nasty injury cases in work places and in public areas. Employees are often required to put up Christmas trees and decorate them in order to make public areas like shops, restaurants, cafes and even schools and hospitals look festive. The problem often arises because the trees are taller than the person who is decorating it! If a safe pair of step ladders (with someone else holding them) are not used, then accidents can easily happen and the employee and the Christmas tree can end up on the floor. If the accident was not the employee’s own fault then they may be able to start a fall case. Accident Advice Helpline can help with this sort of claim and will handle all of the legal aspects for you. Their expert injury solicitors in Leigh Delamere will handle as much of the paperwork as they can on your behalf and negotiate a fair level of compensation.
