Why might you be looking for injury solicitors in Biggar?
There’s a long list of reasons why you might be on the hunt for injury solicitors in Biggar. You might have suffered food poisoning after enjoying a meal from your favourite takeaway. Perhaps you were knocked over by a speeding vehicle as you crossed the road, or maybe you were injured in an industrial accident while working at a factory or manufacturing plant. In all these cases, it’s possible that somebody else could be held liable for your injuries, and so you could be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering and financial losses. You could make a claim even if you have suffered a minor injury such as a sprained wrist or whiplash, provided you sought medical attention after your accident.
Accidents at work
Many people are hesitant to claim compensation for accidents at work as they are worried they’ll lose their jobs, or worried that their employer may be left out of pocket if their claim is successful. There’s legislation in place to protect anybody who makes a claim for personal injury compensation after an accident at work, and whether you use injury solicitors in Biggar or Accident Advice Helpline for your claim, you’re not at risk of losing your job or suffering discrimination in the workplace. The good news is that employers have liability insurance in place which will pay out if your claim is successful – so nobody will be left out of pocket and you’ll receive compensation for your injuries as well as any loss of earnings you’ve suffered, if you have taken time off work after your accident.
