What Types of Compensation Claims Are There?
There are many different types of compensation claim, and if you have been injured, depending on your accident you could very well be within your rights to make one.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have an in-depth knowledge of the different claim types available, and can help you make a strong case that ensures you receive the amount you are owed. Some common claim types include:
Workplace Accident Claim
If you have been injured at your place of work, whether that be an industrial or commercial workplace setting, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Accidents on construction sites, for example, can cause employees to suffer a wide range of injuries from burns to lacerations and head injuries. If your employer is found to have displayed negligence that has resulted in your injury, you should contact our law firm in Glenrothes to see how much you could be entitled to claim.
Road Traffic Accident Claim
If you’ve been in an accident as a pedestrian, or a driver or passenger travelling by car, bus or other vehicle, you could be eligible to make a claim if the accident was not your fault. Common injuries sustained in road traffic accidents include concussion and whiplash, among many others, and our personal injury law firm in Glenrothes can ensure you receive the maximum amount from the driver responsible.
Making a Public Liability Claim With a Law Firm in Glenrothes
An accident in a bank, shopping centre, car park, supermarket or other public place can warrant compensation if it was brought about by negligence. Slips, trips and falls commonly cause accidents in public areas, and make up a large number of the claims processed by our law firm in Glenrothes.
Product Liability Claim
Although products are meant to undergone extensive testing to ensure their safety before being brought to market, in rare cases, products that are unfit still make it out to sale to the general public. If you have used a household product, hair dye, electrical appliance or other product that has caused you an injury, you could hold the manufacturer or retailer responsible and claim compensation. You can also make a claim if your child has been injured using a defective or unsafe toy.
