Hartlepool can be found right up in the north-eastern part of England, in County Durham. The town is a coastal town facing the North Sea. The last census found the area had a population numbering around 92,000 people. Hartlepool accident claim solicitors probably wouldn’t be too hard to find in a population that size, but consider this – if you’d had an accident, wouldn’t you want to take the easiest route to getting advice about a potential claim?
We’re obviously referring to a compensation claim – the act of making a claim against a third party you suspect was responsible for whatever accident you had and whichever injuries you suffered as a result of that accident. Getting advice from a solicitor is a very smart move in this instance.
Does the third party need to have been present when the accident occurred?
You’d think so, wouldn’t you? In some instances, this will have been the case. Take a road accident, for example. If someone drove into your car when they should have stopped and given way to you (perhaps on a roundabout, for instance) then they will be the third party. They may well have been guilty of causing the accident, too.
But consider this – let’s say you broke two fingers by getting them caught in unprotected machinery at work. No one else was present at the time. However, if the machinery didn’t have appropriate safety guards on it, your employer may potentially be found to have been at fault because they did not ensure the machinery was safe to use.
