Have you ever considered that one day you might need to make a personal injury claim in East Devon for compensation? Probably not, because accidents are something that happen to other people, never to you.
But did you know that it is estimated that 40% of the adult population of the UK will be injured in an accident that was not their own fault at some point in their life? We all hope we will be one of the 60% this does not happen to but 40% is quite a high percentage so don’t get too complacent, it could happen to you at any time, no matter where you live or what you do.
The accidents that cause victims to make a personal injury claim in East Devon
There is no end to the types of accidents that can happen through the fault of someone else, but some of the most common ones are:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Accidents in public places
- Slip, trip and fall accidents
- Animal attacks
- Food poisoning
- Holiday accidents
- Sporting accidents
Although these are just a few suggestions of the accidents that can happen, in some of them injuries are sustained that alter the life of the victim forever.
The injuries that can result in a personal injury claim in East Devon
Injuries vary greatly from victim to victim, in their severity and how they impact on the victim’s life. The life of a young parent, for example, could be far more affected by injuries than that of an older person whose children have all flown the nest. They can have the same injury sustained in the same way but need totally different care and assistance while they recover from the injuries that were not their own fault.
At Accident Advice Helpline, our expert solicitors will take all this into consideration when they are assisting with your personal injury claim in East Devon. In fact, we operate nationwide so it does not matter if your injury claim is in East Devon or anywhere else, our network of solicitors and lawyers will have it covered.
Claiming the expenses
Accidents and injuries usually bring unexpected expenses with them, as well as possibly having to lose time from work. This means that at a time when the purse strings could already be stretched, extra things need to be paid for. Medical expenses, travel costs, childcare, home help and many other things need to be used quite often until the victim has recovered from their injuries and sometimes for the rest of their life.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we look at every aspect of your accident and injuries to make sure that you get a fair deal for the situation someone else has put you in.
We have over 14 years’ experience of making successful claims and this has allowed us to make the processes simple, fast and efficient so that you are caused as little stress as possible when you make your compensation claim.
