What our Fenland accident claim solicitors can’t help with
We all know that if you have had an accident in the last three years then the Fenland accident claim solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline may be able to help you make a claim for compensation. However, what sometimes gets forgotten is that the accident in question can’t have been your fault. If you were only partially responsible then we can probably still assist you, although the amount of compensation you are likely to receive will be reduced.
The simple fact of the matter is that in order to be able to make a claim for compensation you have to make a claim against someone. This means that you will be making a claim against the person who is liable for the accident. A task that is impossible, even for our talented Fenland accident claim solicitors, if you have caused your own injuries. There really would be no logic in suing yourself for compensation and no one would want any part of it.
When an accident isn’t an accident
Our Fenland accident claim solicitors are well trained and that means that they can take the time to review every case to ensure that it is legitimate and has a good chance of winning. In fact, our team won’t take on a personal injury claim unless they are pretty certain they can get you the compensation that our 30 second test says you are entitled to.
Occasionally we do turn down cases, especially if our Fenland accident claim solicitors think that they may not be entirely legitimate, or there may be reason to doubt that a genuine error or negligence has taken place.
For example, we were contacted recently by a gentleman who had sprained his ankle after falling down a step at a local bar. The step in question was quite small and one that could easily have been missed. However, in this instance the owner of the bar had painted the step white to highlight its presence, and had placed not one, but three signs in the vicinity advising of the step.
In this instance our Fenland accident claim solicitors declined to take the case as we didn’t feel it was possible to hold the bar owner responsible. Short of knocking the building down and redesigning it to remove the step there wasn’t much more they could have done to advise members of the public of the hazard. Our Fenland accident claim solicitors didn’t feel that it was a fake claim, the gentleman contacting us seems to have genuinely not seen the step – but that unfortunately is one of those things. There was no one to blame, and no one had to take responsibility or pay compensation.
