If you live in Swindon and have been injured in an accident, you may be eligible to make a fall accident compensation claim in Swindon. You will need to prove, with the help of us at Accident Advice Helpline, that another person caused your accident either by their reckless behaviour or their negligence.
Making a fall accident compensation claim in Swindon
First of all, give us a call at Accident Advice Helpline, or send us a text (our contact details are below). You can speak with one of our legal advisers. Explain how your accident happened and tell him or her about your injuries.
When the adviser has understood the circumstances surrounding your accident, he or she will be able to tell you if you have a valid fall accident compensation claim in Swindon. If you have, you can start the claims’ process over the phone.
You should have had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could have done after your accident. If you did not, then this could put your claim in jeopardy. Minor injuries can get worse if they are not treated, and the compensation you could get would be awarded only for the original injury not the exacerbated one.
Your medical records will show whether or not you did have immediate medical attention. These are needed if you proceed with a claim as they give details of your injuries. They are required to assess the amount of compensation you can be awarded for them.
It is impossible to predict exactly how much compensation you could be awarded. This depends on your personal circumstances as well as the nature of your injuries. Basically, the more serious your injuries, the more you receive in compensation. You can receive general damages for your injuries and any loss of amenity.
Special damages can also be awarded to cover expenses, both past and future, that you incur solely because of your injuries. These cover things such as prescription charges, medical care and treatment and so on. If your injuries were severe and life-changing, special damages can cover the expense of adapting your home to suit your new needs.
