Not even injury advice lawyers want people to have accidents! Sadly, they are not things that we can always prevent. A slip on a wet floor, a trip over an uneven kerb and we find ourselves in the long queue at Accident and Emergency.
Modern pressures mean that we all live our lives a little too much in the fast lane. Clock-watching is often the norm for a working person and pressure can lead to lack of concentration which increases the risk of accidents. So if you do fall foul of an accident, what can you do if the situation was caused by someone other than yourself?
Even if you are lucky and have not had an accident, you cannot fail to notice the increased presence of injury advice lawyers. They are everywhere. From cold calling in the evenings, standing at street corners or on a televisions advert, the choice is almost mind boggling. Even Accident and Emergency departments are filled with flyers and pamphlets offering advice. But what is the best route you can take if you feel you have suffered unnecessarily?
Points to remember
You cannot make a claim simply because you have had an accident. There has to be blame attached; this simply means that your misfortune arose as a result of someone else’s negligence. Remember the often used injury advice lawyers motto “no blame, no claim.”
Injury advice lawyers will ask you to keep records of all and any medical attention you receive, as this will be needed to process your claim and the details of anyone who may have witnessed your accident.
The date of the accident is vital as claims can only be made within three years of the date of occurrence (this can be extended with certain specific claims).
