Injury Lawyer in Callander Misconceptions
An injury lawyer in Callander does not just work only personal injury compensation claims made as a direct result of people slipping over on a wet floor in a public place. Nor do all of our cases involve injuries caused a result of road traffic accidents. We’ve all seen the adverts and these are the most commonplace injuries and accident types, so you would be forgiven for thinking that our injury lawyer in Callander only deals with these cases.
However, it is possible to make a compensation claim for a wide variety of accidents and incidents, as personal injury and illness can happen in a number of different circumstances and can range in severity. Your injury lawyer in Callander is an expert in personal injury claims and will be able to help not matter what sort of accident and injury you have sustained.
Accident Advice Helpline has over 13 years of experience in dealing with compensation claims and our in-house injury lawyer in Callander are used to handling every single type of accident/injury imaginable. Below is a brief description of some of the most common claims we deal with.
Road Traffic Accidents
You do not have to have been the driver of a vehicle to make a claim if you were involved in a road traffic accident. You might be entitled to make a claim if you were the passenger in any vehicle involved in an accident and the accident in question was a direct result of someone else’s fault or negligence.
Slips, Trips and Falls
Many people think that having a trip is a very minor thing, and not worth contacting an injury lawyer in Callander in order to make a compensation claim. However, if you have tripped over a raised paving slab, or a poorly maintained walk way and you land awkwardly it is possible that you could break a bone or cause significant damage in another way.
You might have slipped over in a public place because a spillage has not been cleaned up properly or suitably signed, for example, in a super market or other shopping area.
Accidents at Work
All employers have a duty of care to their employees, which means that legally speaking, they have to provide a safe working environment for all of their staff to operate in. The injury you suffer could be as a result of faulty machinery, for example, you could crush your fingers in a press because the safety guard has not been maintained sufficiently. You might even suffer an illness as a result of something that happened at work, for example a typist with repetitive strain injury or perhaps something more serious like an asbestos related disease including mesothelioma.
