The rural village and civil parish of Newburgh is located in Lancashire and had a population of just over 1,000 people in 2011. A very historical village with a history dating back to 1304, today many people living in Newburgh commute to work in the surrounding towns of Ormskirk and Skelmersdale.
Being such a small village could make finding injury lawyers in Newburgh a challenge. However, there’s no need to panic – if you or somebody you love has been injured in an accident in the area then you could always get advice from Accident Advice Helpline. With a qualified team of professional personal injury lawyers and over 16 years’ experience, we cover the whole of the UK and so if you have been injured in Fife, we should be your first port of call.
Who caused your accident?
You can only make a personal injury claim if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by somebody else. So if you were driving dangerously and crashed your car, we’re sorry, but we won’t be able to help you make a claim. Provided your accident happened in the last three years and you sought medical treatment for your injuries, there’s a good chance that we could help you to get compensation. It’s not always obvious who is to blame for an accident, but we have so many years of industry experience that you can talk to us about what has happened and we’ll be able to let you know if you have a viable claim. If you’ve been injured in an accident at work, it could be that your boss is to blame or perhaps a colleague. Whereas if you have suffered injuries after a slip, trip or fall then you can get in touch with us to find out who is at fault – if you have slipped in a shop then the owner could be liable, whilst if you have tripped on damaged pavement in the burgh then you could find that the local council is to blame.
Is it worth claiming with injury lawyers in Newburgh for minor injuries?
Many people looking for injury lawyers in Newburgh don’t bother to make a personal injury claim if they have sustained minor injuries as they’re worried about making a fuss or that their injuries are not serious enough. The truth is that even if you have suffered minor injuries, you are still entitled to claim personal injury compensation if somebody else caused your accident. You’re likely to receive a smaller settlement than somebody who has been seriously injured, but you could still be compensated for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings, which makes claiming well worthwhile, especially if you have taken time off work to recover after your accident.
If you think you might be eligible to make a claim then it’s a good idea to call us as soon as possible after your accident. You can get in touch on our freephone helpline on 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from your mobile (charges apply). We’re waiting to hear from you and here to offer you the advice you need.
