There are few times in the year more magical and universally popular than Christmas. From children we’re taught that this is the time of year when we smile a little easier, feel a little kinder and have a little more patience. In short, most people if they were honest with themselves would probably say that they would wish it could be Christmas every day.
However, it’s also a time when spirits (the alcoholic kind) tend to be higher than normal and as a result, accidents are far more likely. Some, such as a boozy fall, are simply accidents for which there is nobody to blame but the rather unfortunate person on the floor. Other accidents are less blame-free and as a result, Hartlepool no win no fee solicitors can assist.
Accidents tend to happen when people let their own defences down and in many cases, as has already been stated, an accident is nobody’s fault and as a result there is no case for Hartlepool no win no fee solicitors to make a claim for.
The reason for this is that the law allows for a person who has been injured in an accident they did not cause to make a claim for compensation from the person or organisation who holds responsibility for the accident. Their responsibility for the accident may be that they failed to act when they knew there was a problem, they acted negligently or that they behaved irresponsibly or dangerously and someone was hurt as the result of this.
Therefore, if you have been injured over the festive season and the accident was not simply “one of those things” or occurred as the result of another person’s actions, you can make a claim for compensation with the help of Hartlepool no win no fee solicitors.
It may be that you attended a party where you contracted food poisoning; it may be that an ornament or tree fell onto you as you shopped for presents or it may be that you received an electric shock from a light or ornament. In any of these cases, Hartlepool no win no fee solicitors can seek compensation on your behalf.
Even the smallest accident and seemingly small injuries could leave you needing treatment, time away from work to recover from your injuries and facing a lengthy battle to regain your full health and strength. In this event, you and your family could be left financially worse off as the result of an incident or accident you did not cause, and at any time this could be devastating to you but as the festive season draws near, it could be even worse.
