How injury lawyers in Hindon can help you
Anyone searching for injury lawyers in Hindon should have plenty of choice, as this village in Wiltshire is situated not too far from Warminster and Salisbury. The important thing is to have a solicitor who understands the details of your case and the current value of compensation award payments.
Personal injury compensation law for non-fault accidents covers many categories, including:
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Road traffic accidents;
- Medical negligence;
- Accidents at work; and
- Work-related illnesses.
Should a victim make a claim and the defendant accept it, the compensation award will be made from the defendant’s insurance policy. It’s not unheard of for the company bearing the liability to make a direct call to the claimant and offer a quick settlement sum, to save going through the whole legal process and save themselves a hefty chunk of money. Of course they don’t tell the defendant that, but this is why it is important once you have checked your claim qualifies to get an estimate of what your claim could be worth if injury lawyers in Hindon take on your case and win.

Sprained ankle or wrist
The most usual injury from a slip, trip or fall is a sprained ankle or wrist, as the ligaments are stretched beyond their normal range when the limb is twisted. The natural instinct when falling is to put out one’s arms to break the fall, so a sprain or break results.
Swelling can be reduced by putting the injured limb alternately in hot and cold water with ice. Finish in the cold water. The alternate hot and cold activates the blood flow and helps to reduce swelling. Do not walk on a sprained limb, but try to rest with it raised up, again to encourage blood flow. A severe sprain or one in which pain persists should be seen by the doctor, who might order an X-ray to check for broken bones.
