Has a loved one been hurt in a Gresford accident?
Hearing the news that a loved one has been injured or caught up in a Gresford accident can be traumatic in itself. As family members are normally informed of a Gresford accident before the full details are clear, they may be unaware how badly their loved one has been injured at first.
If you aren’t with your friend or family member at the time of the Gresford accident, you may try to rush to their side. Although this is understandable, it’s important to take care whilst you make your way to them. As you may be in shock or in a state of panic it may be more sensible to get a lift or to take a taxi, rather than to try and drive yourself.
Once your loved one has had their injuries diagnosed, it’s likely that they will be taken for medical treatment. Depending on the type of injuries they’ve sustained, they may need to stay in hospital for some time. If you are a close relative, such as a parent or a brother or sister, it’s possible that you will be able to stay with your loved one whilst they are receiving treatment.
Depending on how the Gresford accident happened, your loved one may want to make a claim for compensation. Providing the incident was caused by someone or something else, it’s likely that they will be eligible to make a claim but they may need your help and support in order to do so.
If they find it hard to recall the experience or they are suffering emotionally as a result of the Gresford accident, they may find it hard to talk about the incident. You can help by offering to liaise with their personal injury lawyers or attend legal appointments with them.
In more serious cases, your loved one may be unable to make a claim without your assistance. If, for example, their injuries are very severe, they may be incapable of contacting a personal injury solicitor or making a claim unaided. If you want to make a claim on behalf of a love one or you want to know more about it, we can help.
