    Injury lawyers St. Albans

    St. Albans is a city in Southern Hertfordshire. The city today shows evidence of building and excavation from all periods of its history and is a tourist destination. Notable buildings include the Abbey and the early 15th century Clock Tower.

    Hertfordshire is an area popular with walkers, hikers and ramblers who quite often are involved in accidents. You might expect a sprain or a bruised knee when out walking, but nothing much more. Unfortunately, much more can happen and some serious injuries can be sustained, so you may want to talk to injury lawyers in St. Albans.

    Using injury lawyers St. Albans if you are injured in an accident while out walking

    The most common type of accident for walkers, hikers and ramblers is a slip, trip or fall, which generally result in a fracture at worst.  But what if that trip puts you in the path of an oncoming car or a tractor in a country lane, who knows how bad your injuries would be then and certainly they would probably be serious enough to have to make a personal injury claim using injury lawyers in St. Albans.

    Accident Advice Helpline have been assisting people with their personal injury claims since 2000 and we have dealt with numerous accidents involving walkers, hikers and ramblers and some of the injuries they have sustained have been:

    • Head injuries
    • Knee injuries
    • Cuts and bruises
    • Broken bones
    • Sprains
    • Back injuries
    • Spinal injuries

    The cow problem

    Another common injury while out on a trek is to be walking through farmer’s fields and being attacked by an animal, usually a cow.  If you happen to be passing through while they have a calf, they will see you as a threat to their baby and very often attack you. The injuries they cause can be very nasty and it is considered the farmers fault for leaving them in fields that have public footpaths through them.

    Another common farm animal to attack is a dog, who really are just doing the job they have been trained to do and protecting the land and other animals – but the farmer should keep them under control and not let attacks happen.

    A claim is no walkover

    You could try making the claim yourself, but we would not recommend it. For the layperson, they can be complex and time consuming and you will stand much more chance of success if you use Accident Advice Helpline to make your personal injury compensation claim.

    On our website, there is a compensation calculator which we call the 30-second test. Completion of this lets you know if you qualify to make a claim and gives you an indication of the amount you may be awarded.

    You can make contact by calling our freephone helpline number, 0800 689 0500. Our friendly and professional advisers will talk you through the accident and injuries with you and then give you free legal advice so you can decide if you want to continue with your claim.
