Apart from slip, trip and fall accidents, road traffic accidents are the most common in the UK, a situation that is pretty much the same worldwide. What is not the same the world over though is personal injury claims, each country having its own laws regarding compensation. In Great Britain, if you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation. We can help you get what’s owed to you if you have been injured at work in Bryncoch.
Suffering an injury because you have been involved in a road traffic accident can be very stressful, particularly if it was not your own fault. If you were injured because some one else was careless, reckless, negligent or acted with intention, you should be speaking to Accident Advice Helpline to see if you qualify to make a claim after being injured at work in Bryncoch.
The criteria for seeking compensation after being injured at work in Bryncoch
The criteria applies to all personal injury claims and they are a legal requirement for you to pursue compensation:
- The accident should have happened within the last three years
- It should not have been your fault
- You should have sustained injuries in the accident
- You should have sought medical attention for your injuries
You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim if you fit this criteria.
Claiming for more than injuries
When you are making a personal injury claim it is not just your injuries that need considering. How the injury has impacted on your life, the prognosis for your future and any expenses incurred because of the accident all need accounting for. Such things as:
- Loss of earnings, past and future
- Replacement of equipment and accessories
- Medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Care costs
- Home adaption or home moving costs
These can all be recouped as part of your claim, providing you have proof of them. You should keep all receipts for expenses, and wage slips are the ideal way to prove your loss of income. Talk to us today if you do have any questions about the claims process.
