- Animal attacks
- Accidents in schools

Does my injury warrant a personal injury claim?
As long as you needed to seek medical attention for the injuries you sustained, they will be covered by a personal injury claim. Injuries can vary greatly in their severity, and in the ways they affect victims lives – at Accident Advice Helpline we will account for all this, as well as the prospects you have of making a full recovery.
You will need a medical report from whoever treated your injuries, and sometimes a victim is asked to attend a medical with a specialist in their particular field of injury.
I have had to pay out a lot of money because of the accident, can I claim any of it back?
If your personal injury claim is successful, any extra costs and losses associated with your accident can be reclaimed as long as you have kept proof of the. Make sure you get receipts for everything that is an extra, no matter how little it might seem, as over just a few weeks, these can mount up to a lot of money.
With your loss of earning, wages slips are the ideal as proof, but if you do not have these, your employer will be asked to confirm the reduction in your income.
