Personal injury law is in truth quite a deceptively complicated world. There are few hard and fast rules and it’s not always possible to be certain what you need to get a claim in place. That’s because the rules vary significantly depending on what type of accident you’ve suffered. This means that you’ll need to find an expert solicitor in Hartfield who has the specific background which will be relevant to making a claim. Here’s our guide to some of the most common types of accidents and how they are treated in law.
Road traffic accidents
With so many cars on the roads these days it’s no surprise that this is one of the most common types of claims we deal with at Accident Advice Helpline. If there is an accident then it is likely to be because at least one of the parties was at fault. If the accident causes a severe injury to someone then the party who caused the crash will be liable to compensation.
Under the law we all have to carry third party insurance and it will be this that you claim against. You’ll have to show that the accident was not your fault and that the other driver was to blame. Key to this is getting evidence in the form of witness statements. If you can get the contact details of anyone who was at the scene and pass these on that will improve your chances of success.
Injuries in the workplace
Our employers are obliged to make reasonable adjustments to the office to ensure it is as safe as possible for all the people who work there. If they have fallen down in that regard then there is scope for compensation. This can be delicate especially if you’re still working there, but your employer is not allowed to take any action against you just because you’ve decided to launch a claim.
Injuries in public
The local council is responsible for most public areas you’ll be in and with so many cuts to expenditure in council budgets coming in, it is becoming more likely that they will neglect some areas. If this leads to an accident then you may be entitled to claim compensation from them.Open Claim Calculator
