If you have recently been injured in an accident in the Glenfinnan area that was not your own fault, then you may be wondering what a typical compensation case is and whether yours is one of them. The simple answer is that there is no such thing as a typical claim, because every case, accident and injury is so different.
This is why it is such a good idea to have a large, experienced law firm like Accident Advice Helpline to handle your case. We have all the experience and expertise that is needed to handle any type of case. Here are some examples of what an injury claim solicitor in Glenfinnan can do for you.
A road traffic accident
Road traffic accidents are a very common cause of compensation claims. Thousands of people are injured on UK roads every year, a proportion of which were not the victim’s own fault. Accident Advice Helpline can help you to claim compensation. The compensation is for two things. Firstly, there is a sum of money which is for the injury itself. In general terms, the more serious the injury, the higher the compensation that is awarded. Secondly, compensation is paid for the money that the victim has lost because they have been injured. This can include loss of wages, childcare bills and household assistance bills.
Accident Advice Helpline are experienced in helping all victims of road traffic accidents, including:
- Vehicle drivers;
- Bus passengers; and
- Minibus passengers.
A workplace accident
Workplace accidents are highly variable. Accident Advice Helpline have a team of personal injury lawyers who are experts in all sorts of occupational accident claims. Slips, trips and falls are very common workplace accidents resulting in nasty injuries. They are also easy to prevent and it is unsurprising that injured employees feel the need to claim compensation from the person that did not bother to put measures in place to prevent them. This is often the employer. We will collect all of the details of the accident and set about showing who was at fault. We will then negotiate a fair level of compensation for the injured person.
Workplace accidents can be very serious. Accidents on construction sites, for example, can result in extremely serious head and spinal injuries and the injured worker may have to endure several months of rehabilitation. Some injuries cannot be completely cured and the worker is left with some degree of permanent disability. Accident Advice Helpline’s expert personal injury lawyers will negotiate sufficient compensation to make adaptations to the injured worker’s home and lifestyle, which may add up to a considerable sum of money. Most employers have employer’s liability insurance which covers them for a claim.
