A personal injury claim in East Hampshire can be because of any type of accident, but there are some we come across more often than others, such as:
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work
- Slips, trips and falls
As the three most common types of accidents in the UK, we have handled a personal injury claim in East Hampshire countless times that relate to one of them.
A personal injury claim in East Hampshire for road traffic accidents
The majority of road traffic accidents are caused by driver error, which in turn is often caused by a lack of concentration. It does not take more than a few seconds of looking the wrong way to cause an accident, and to injure innocent victims.
The next most common cause of road traffic accidents is potholes and bad road surfaces that should have been repaired. These are particularly dangerous for cyclists and motorbike riders, who can easily be thrown from their bikes by them.
A personal injury claim in east Hampshire for accidents at work
All employers in the UK have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and if they fail in this duty and you are injured in an accident in the work place, you can claim compensation from them.
Accidents at work can have very serious consequences for victims, ranging from falls at height that cripple, to much more minor injuries like broken bones, but they can all affect the life of the victim and their family.
A personal injury claim in East Hampshire for slips, trips and falls
Slips, trips and falls are the most common of all accidents and can happen anywhere at any time. They can be much more serious than they sound, producing life changing injuries.
Like all accidents, many of them could be prevented if the proper precautions were in place, and if you are injured in this way through no fault of your own, claiming compensation is your legal right.
Claiming what is rightfully yours
Lives can be wrecked by accidents and injuries, and although at Accident Advice Helpline we all know that no amount of money can turn the clock back, compensation can help to make life a little easier for the victims.
It is not just the injuries that you can claim for. Accidents always cause extra unplanned expenses, and if your claim is successful, these can all be recovered as long as you have kept proof of payment.
