When might you seek the services of an injury lawyer in Warwickshire? Some people aren’t entirely sure whether getting help is the appropriate course of action when they’ve been in an accident, and sadly, they miss out on getting the compensation they deserve.
The aftermath of an accident is a difficult time. It’s a time to get all the help you need, and at Accident Advice Helpline, we’re in a position to offer you help to get the payout you deserve.
What accidents qualify you for help from an injury lawyer in Warwickshire?
If you’re wondering whether your accident makes you eligible for help, let us clarify things for you.
Firstly, the accident must have led to personal injury. The injury doesn’t necessarily have to be physical, though. Psychological injury can also be claimed for, so if you’ve had a car accident and you experienced anxiety and depression afterwards, we could help.
Secondly, the accident that caused you to get injured must be someone else’s fault. This doesn’t necessarily mean that someone else had to be present when the accident took place, either.
If you slipped and fell in a shopping centre, breaking your ankle, it’s likely that you will have slipped on a polished or wet floor because there was no warning sign! It’s the shopping centre management’s responsibility to ensure public safety.
Thirdly, your accident must have taken place within the past three years. This means that you shouldn’t delay in getting started with a claim. Obviously, you don’t have to call Accident Advice Helpline while you’re waiting to have your injuries treated in hospital. You should definitely take care of your health first. However, please don’t wait too long.
The exact circumstances don’t matter
You’ll see from the information above that, while examples of accidents are given, there is nothing to say that certain kinds of accidents that cause injury will not qualify you for a claim.
That’s because it doesn’t matter what the setting was. Yes, you could claim for a road traffic accident or a slip and fall incident in a public place, but you could also claim for a faulty product injury or a workplace accident that involved machinery.
If in doubt, give us a call, because one of our advisors will be able to tell you whether or not your claim is valid. If it is, one of our solicitors could take on your case and fight to get you a compensation payout. Better still, our lawyers all work on a no win no fee basis.
