Accident Advice Helpline can represent you in an injury claim in Charnwood if you were injured and received medical assistance due to an accident that was not your fault within the last three years.
Before you leap into making a new claim, however, take some time to think about the accident itself, as well as your injury. This can help you later if you choose to take Accident Advice Helpline’s 30 second test (available on our website to provide free estimates for compensation), or if you need to attend court to gain your compensation.
Whose fault was the accident?
First of all, was the accident your fault? This might seem like a silly question with an obvious answer – if it’s an accident, then it couldn’t be someone’s fault, right?
Not necessarily. If the accident was caused because of your own oversight or negligence, there’s very little we can do – for you to be compensated as part of an injury claim in Charnwood, we need to prove that the accident was the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness rather than your own.
So, think about the circumstances of the accident. How was it caused? Who was responsible for the circumstances that led up to the accident? After all, when it comes to workplace safety, your employer has a legal responsibility to make sure the environment is safe to work in.
If you’re not sure, why not give us a call and discuss the details with us? Our 10+ years’ experience in personal injury law means we have a solid understanding of health and safety law in the United Kingdom.
How were you injured?
Next, consider if you were injured in the accident. Again, this may seem obvious at first glance – but many people actually play down or dismiss the injuries they receive, especially for injuries like Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or those received in a slip, trip or fall! In fact, in recent years, less and less people have come forward to claim the compensation that they deserve because they didn’t believe their injuries were severe enough.
Think about how you were injured in the accident. What parts of your body were injured? Did you receive medical assistance for your injuries? Accident Advice Helpline can provide an additional medical assessment to make sure we have all the information needed to make your injury claim in Charnwood as successful as it can be.
