The small town of Kilkeel in County Down, Northern Ireland, had a population of 6,887 in 2011. Fishing is a major industry here, with the harbour home to one of Ireland’s largest fishing fleets, fish processing factories and lobster farming taking place off the coast. But the largest employer in the area is BE Aerospace, a manufacturer of aircraft seats. Whether you work in Kilkeel or commute to work further afield, you may find yourself in need of injury solicitors in Kilkeel if you’ve been injured and somebody else was to blame for your accident. What do we mean by this?
Who’s to blame for your accident?
Sometimes, accidents happen that nobody is at fault for – but other times somebody else’s negligence may have led to an accident that left you injured. For example, you may have been driving to work when another car ran into the back of your vehicle, leaving you suffering from whiplash, cuts and bruises. Or perhaps you were at work in a shop when you fell from a faulty ladder in the stock room, breaking your ankle and suffering a back injury. You may even have been injured in a public place – for example, you could trip on damaged pavement in the town centre whilst meeting friends for lunch, and sprain your wrist or hit your head, suffering a concussion.
All these accidents have one thing in common – somebody else could be held liable, and you could find yourself in need of injury solicitors in Kilkeel. If you think you may have a personal injury claim, you could save yourself time and money by getting in touch with Accident Advice Helpline – we have over 16 years’ experience handling personal injury claims, and we can help you however you have been injured.
Compensation for minor injuries
Many of the people looking for injury solicitors in Kilkeel have suffered minor injuries – and as a result they may feel unsure whether they’re eligible to claim compensation after their accident. But provided you can say ‘yes’ to the following questions, you could have a viable claim on your hands, no matter how minor your injuries are:
- Were you injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault?
- Did your accident happen in the last three years?
- Did you seek medical attention for your injuries?
We could help you to claim compensation if you can answer these questions positively, whether you’ve suffered whiplash, a sprained ankle or a more serious injury.
