Types of Accidents
If you have had an injury in UK then there are number of different ways that this injury might have occurred. For example:
- On the road – accidents can occur whether you are the driver of a vehicle, or perhaps the passenger (it does not matter if you were a passenger of the vehicle in which the driver was responsible for the accident, this will not impact on your ability to make a claim). You might even have been a paying passenger, for example, on a bus, coach or in a taxi. You might be injured if you are a pedestrian, or cyclist. Any road users can make a claim, even if there are no other vehicles involved. For example, you could be injured as a result of a fault with your vehicle, or perhaps a poorly maintained road or path.
- At work – accidents at work can occur in a variety of scenarios and ways. For example, you might be able to make a claim against your employer if they have not provided you with adequate training to complete a job or task safely and you have been injured as a result.
- Clinical negligence – clinical negligence claims can be brought against medical professionals if you have been given the wrong treatment or suffered as a result of a misdiagnosis.
- Public places – the term public place can cover a wide number of establishments, from gyms to restaurants and shops. If you have been injured in any of these environments our solicitors might be able to help you make a claim if the accident occurred as the result of someone else’s actions or errors.
