The lawyer in Aultbea that you choose, to represent your personal injury claim, should be someone you trust to get you the justice and compensation that you deserve. If you have suffered a personal injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you are legally entitled to compensation – and depending on your pain, suffering and loss of income, this may involve a substantial amount of money.
You can call Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 and speak to a specialist accident solicitor in Hassocks office that will be just right for your particular case.
Provided the accident was caused by somebody else within the last 3 years, your claim might be for:
- Personal injuries caused by medical negligence
- Trips, slips and falls
- Road traffic accidents
- Accidents at work or industrial diseases
- Sports related accidents caused by being given insufficient training or trainers not complying with health and safety regulations
- These are just some examples of the fields a specialist accident solicitor in Hassocks might be dealing with.
There is talk frequently within the press, media and on the Internet about the perceived compensation culture in the UK. Academics have written papers on it, condemning our subscribing to this practice.
But, consider this question – if you have been hurt, possible facing having to change your life to accommodate the pain and the injuries you have suffered, who will help you FINANCIALLY?
There may be some financial help from the state, but it will not cover very much; it will be a lot less than the salary you may be used to living off!
At this point, many an injury lawyer in Aultbea and their teams find that people who criticise the pursuit of compensation will start to split their argument, advocating that there are ‘levels’ of injury where people are entitled to financial compensation.
Small, inconsequential injuries such as whiplash should be excluded, they say, but obviously the more serious injuries should be compensated.
This is not what the law says
An injury lawyer in Aultbea will point out that the law in the UK does not differentiate between levels of injuries, recognising that a whiplash can be just as serious to the person nursing the injury as someone who receives a longer term injury.
The law clearly states, that as a citizen of the UK, you are entitled to make a claim for financial compensation through an expert injury lawyer Altbea, and other solicitors, if:
- The accident, or incident was not your fault
- It happened in the last 3 years
- And you sought medical advice for your injury or injuries
How long will it take?
This will vary from case to case, but many are settled within a couple of months. Call Accident Advice Helpline free on 0800 689 0500 to speak to an adviser and find an accident solicitor in Hassocks just right for your personal injury claim.
