The UK is a multicultural and diverse country, and with so many people living here whose first language isn’t English, it’s fair to assume that the idea of making a personal injury claim could be quite daunting. With Accident Advice Helpline it doesn’t have to be this way though. You can make a Hindi accident claim if you are a native Hindi speaker, as we have Hindi-speaking advisors available to take your call. So if you need to discuss your workplace accident or road traffic accident injuries with somebody who speaks your language, we have the right advisors to put your mind at ease.
Why might you need our services?
You may need the services of a personal injury lawyer to make a Hindi accident claim if you have been injured in an accident caused by somebody else. You might have been hit by a car as you crossed the road, or perhaps you slipped on a wet floor in a shop and broke your ankle. Maybe you’ve been injured in an industrial accident at work or suffered whiplash after your vehicle was rear-ended by another car at traffic lights. In fact in 2015, 22,137 people were seriously injured in road traffic accidents – were you amongst them? In all of these examples, somebody else could be held liable for your injuries and you might need our services. We have over 16 years’ experience, and our professional personal injury lawyers work on a 100% no-win, no-fee basis, so making a claim is affordable, no matter what your circumstances.
Are you eligible to make a Hindi accident claim?
If you can answer ‘yes’ to the following questions then it is likely that you’re eligible to make an accident claim:
- Have you been in an accident that was not your fault?
- Have you been injured?
- Did your injuries require medical attention?
- Did your accident occur in the last three years?
There is a three-year time limit in place to make a claim after being injured in an accident, so it’s best to seek advice from a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Accident Advice Helpline exists to offer confidential, no-obligation advice to anybody who has been injured in an accident caused by somebody else.
How did your accident happen?
If you have been injured in an accident at work and you’re considering making a Hindi accident claim, you are not alone. Every year, thousands of workers are injured whilst carrying out their jobs -but who is at fault? Although it may be that your own negligence caused your accident, more often than not it is a negligent employer who has breached health and safety regulations that has led to your accident and subsequent injuries. Lack of housekeeping and an untidy work environment is one of the most common causes of accidents at work and this is really very easy to avoid. Whether you work in an office, a shop or a warehouse, keeping your workplace clean and tidy reduces hazards and therefore the risk of accidents happening.
Your employer should ensure that all staff make an effort to keep the workplace clean and tidy at all times. It may be that you have been injured in an accident on the roads or even in a public place, and you’re wondering if you’re eligible to make a Hindi accident claim. If somebody else caused your accident – for example, if you were injured in a road traffic accident caused by a distracted driver – then you could claim compensation.
Were you injured on the roads?
If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident, either as a driver, passenger, pedestrian or cyclist, you might be wondering who is to blame for your accident. A report published which looked into the causes of road traffic accidents between 2005 and 2009 revealed that driver error was the leading cause of road traffic accidents. If somebody else has failed to stop at a red light, been distracted behind the wheel or been speeding in wet weather and caused a collision, you could get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline to find out if you could make a personal injury claim. We have handled Hindi accident claims from those living in multicultural, busy cities such as Birmingham, the most culturally-mixed city in the UK, and London but also from people living in rural areas who may struggle to find a personal injury solicitor who speaks their language.
Next steps to making a Hindi accident claim
You might also find yourself wondering whether your injuries are really serious enough to warrant claiming compensation. The good news is that even if your injuries are relatively minor, you can still make a personal injury claim if you received medical treatment for them. The first thing you should do if you’re considering making a Hindi accident claim is to get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. You could take the 30-second test on our website or call any time to find out if you have a viable claim and see how much you could be entitled to receive. You’ll be asked a few simple questions about your accident and given an estimate of how much your settlement could be if your claim is successful. Bear in mind that this is only a rough estimate, as we take into account a wide range of different factors when working out your personal injury settlement.
Claiming compensation after your accident
Generally speaking, there are two types of damages you can claim when you come to make a personal injury claim: general damages and special damages. General damages refers to the compensation you receive for your injury, such as compensation for pain, suffering or loss of future earnings. Special damages, on the other hand, covers any financial losses you have suffered after your accident, such as the cost of travelling to medical appointments, medical expenses and the cost of car repair if your car has been damaged in a road traffic accident. To find out if you could be entitled to claim, you can call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile today – our advisors are on hand, offering no-obligation advice.
