If you are considering making a personal injury claim in Port Talbot, because of injuries sustained in an accident that was not your own fault, you should be turning to Accident Advice Helpline for help with your claim. One of the first things victims ask is what sort of accidents do Accident Advice Helpline deal with.
The accidents we deal with for a personal injury claim in Port Talbot, or wherever else you may be in the UK
Over three million accidents happen every year in the UK, and the variety among them is huge. Some of the more common ones that we are asked to deal with include:
- Road traffic accidents – these claims can be for accidents with all types of vehicles, not just cars. It could be cyclist, lorries, motorbikes, buses, pedestrian, tractors and maybe even horse riders. Anything that goes on our roads can be in a road traffic accident.
- Accidents at work – your employers should protect your health and safety while you are at work. This is a legal requirement that if they fail to fulfil you would be able to make an accident at work claim.
- Slips, trips and fall accidents – anywhere, anytime, anyhow, that’s how these accidents happen. They account for over one third of all UK accidents, and if you are injured in one that was not your own fault, you may be entitled to make a personal injury claim in Port Talbot.
- Medical negligence – we usually only visit our doctors if we are ill, injured or pregnant, and we trust them, and all the other medical professionals to take care of us. But sometimes they make mistakes that can affect a victim forever, and they could be entitled to make a medical negligence compensation claim.
- Sporting injuries – players consent to injuries by just taking part in a sport, but sometimes they are more than part of play. If the injury you sustain while playing, happened because of recklessness, negligence or with intent, you might be able to make a sporting injury claim.
- Food poisoning – whoever sells food should take care that it is not infested with bacteria, as this will cause people to be ill, and they could make a food poisoning claim against whoever supplied the food to them.
- School accidents – we all like to think our children are safe at school, and most of the time they are. But sometimes accidents happen that were not the fault of the child, and then you could be making a school accident claim on their behalf.
These are just a few of the accidents we are asked to deal with, there are literally hundreds of them, and they all come within the scope of personal injury claims if the accident was not your fault, you needed medical attention and the accident happened no more than three years ago.
