There are two ways in which you can handle your slip, trip or fall in the street in Oldbury. If the fall was someone else’s fault then there is a set method for handling the situation that should lead on to starting a successful personal injury claim and a fair settlement of compensation. If you do not deal with it in this way then a personal injury solicitor in Oldbury may not be able to help you at all and you may not get any compensation.
What you have to do if you want to use an injury solicitor in Oldbury
- Do not try to get straight back onto your feet. This is not a good idea from a medical or a legal point of view. Take some time to check what your injuries are and to check if any passers-by witnessed your fall. If you stay on the floor then a responsible witness is likely to come over and check that you are all right. Accept offers of help and maybe even ask them to collect the details of anyone else who saw you fall. Taking photographs of the area where you fell can also be extremely useful.
- Get medical attention for your injuries. It is always a good idea to get some medical advice on how to handle injuries because you are not a medical expert. If you are severely injured you will be taken to Accident and Emergency in an ambulance.
- Give Accident Advice Helpline a call as soon as you can – perhaps when you get home. We will give you the best personal injury advice right from the start if you need a personal injury solicitor in Oldbury to handle your claim. You can call us whenever you like on our 24/7 helpline number. We will handle your claim on a no win no fee* basis.
What you should do if you DO NOT want to use an injury solicitor in Oldbury
If you are not bothered about getting any compensation and are happy to put up with the pain and financial hardship whilst the person who caused your accident gets away with it then follow this advice!
Jump straight back up and waive all offers of help away as you rush back home. Do not bother looking at what you fell over and do not think about the fact that someone else may fall over it as well!
Don’t bother with any contact details of people who saw you fall or with any photographs. Take weeks off work and lose a lot of money which affects your family’s finances for years to come. Only start to think that you may have wanted to start a personal injury claim more than three years after your accident when it is too late!
