Hadleigh may be a small town but, it has been in the news lately because the Tesco plans for opening a supermarket there have been rejected. This was a blow for the supermarket giant perhaps, but good news for the local shopkeepers.
Even in a town such as Hadleigh, accidents can happen while you are driving to work or walking to the local shops. If you have been injured in an accident that was no fault of yours, you may be entitled to make an injury claim in Haddleigh.
Injury claim in Hadleigh
If you have been injured in an accident which you can prove that someone else was to blame in the last three years, then you may have grounds on which to base an injury claim in Hadleigh or one from anywhere else in the UK.
You can also claim for a work-related illness, an occupational disease or any other illness that you can prove was due to another person’s negligence.
Accidents in public places
If you slip, trip or fall in a public place (perhaps in the street, at a cinema, in a bank and so on) then you may have grounds for making an injury claim in Hadleigh. An accident in the street should be reported to the police and an ambulance should be called as you need to receive medical treatment for your injury immediately. The local authority should be informed of the accident either by you, or the police who will write a report. Your claim may be made against them if you were injured on the street, as the local authority is responsible for the maintenance of roads and pavements.
If you slip and break a limb in a supermarket then you should inform a member of staff and have them record the accident in the accident book. This should give the time, date and nature of the accident as well as the names and contact details of any witnesses.
