Injury claim in Steyning
Steyning is a small town and civil parish in the Horsham District of West Sussex. Steyning has existed since Anglo-Saxon times. Legend has it that St. Cuthman built a church, at one time dedicated to him, later to St Andrew, and now jointly to St Andrew and St Cuthman, where he stopped after carrying his mother in a Wheelbarrow. Several of the signs that can be seen on entering Steyning bear an image of his feat. King Alfred the Great’s father, Ethelwulf of Wessex was originally buried in that church, before being transferred to Winchester – a Saxon grave slab (possibly his) remains in the church porch.
If a resident of Steyning, or anywhere else in Britain, has an accident that was not their fault and they are injured in that accident, they may find it necessary to make an injury claim in Steyning.
Visiting an A&E before making an injury claim in Steyning
If you have been injured in an accident, particularly seriously, you may well have to visit your local hospital. Accident & Emergency (A&E) departments in British hospitals deal with over 21 million cases a year, quite a few who will be the innocent parties of accidents that need to make an injury claim in Steyning.
Not all visitors are because of accidents
Visitors to A&E departments are not always there because of an accident, serious illnesses account for a lot of the visits as well. However, out of 21 million people, there will be a lot that are there because they have been involved in an accident of some sort, and of those many will be the blameless victim of the accident. This means they may be able to make a personal injury claim in Steyning.
Visit A&E for life threatening emergencies
Generally, the hospitals would prefer if visits to A&E were for life threatening emergencies, such as:
- Loss of consciousness
- Acute confused state and fits that are not stopping
- Persistent, severe chest pain
- Breathing difficulties
- Severe bleeding that cannot be stopped
This is so that patients who are seriously ill or injured can be treated as quickly as possible. If your injury is not serious, you should visit one of the NHS walk in centres or your GP.
