A common question on our helpline is “what types of accident do you deal with?” Accident Advice Helpline deals with a wide range of different accident types and can provide an injury solicitor in Stourport-on-Severn, or throughout the UK, to obtain the personal injury compensation you are seeking.
Accidents in the workplace
One of the highest accident rates in the UK is within the construction industry. This is unsurprising when you consider the type of heavy machinery and work at height that is required.
Fork lift truck accidents causing broken bones and head injuries are common, as are falls from height which sometimes compromise the victim’s mobility long-term. These are serious consequences, and need reliable legal representation to ensure that compensation is the highest possible in the circumstances.
Accidents within an office are similarly frequent, but on the whole less serious. Tripping over computer cables lying loose is a common reason for claiming, or slipping on a wet floor that has not been attended to.
Claim for a road traffic accident with an injury solicitor in Stourport-on-Severn
Travelling as a passenger, whether in a friend or family member’s car or on public transport, leaves you with little ability to control what happens during a collision or other road accident. Unfortunately, passengers are often seriously hurt with injuries including head trauma, broken bones and damage to the spine.
Your personal injury solicitor will negotiate on your behalf with the negligent third party, using skill and expertise to deal with the complexities of these claims. As we mentioned earlier, whiplash is not always felt immediately by the victim, and because of this you may not have sought medical treatment at the time of the accident.
Many people go to their GP or local Accident and Emergency department several days later to be treated for whiplash, which makes it no less serious. Whiplash can cause long-term pain and discomfort not only in the neck area, but also the shoulders.
Slips, trips and fall claims with Accident Advice Helpline
We deal with thousands of this type of claim every year, many of them occurring in a public place such as a supermarket or on the public pavement. In some of these cases the local council may be to blame for your injury, in which case they are the negligent third party who you will claim against.
