A few strange facts…
They seem almost too weird to be true but, across the world there are groups of people who have died in bizarre circumstances or situations – Darwin awards style. Bearing these in mind, it seems that many people also suffer various injuries in bizarre circumstances but an injury lawyer in Austwick can help you make a compensation claim.
In Russia, it is reported that around 100 people a year are killed or hurt by falling icicles. Yes, frozen water!
Whilst we may laugh, or even chuckle at reading this, if you were hurt in a similar situation, what would you do?
In the UK, if you are hurt in an accident that was not your fault, no matter how bizarre, you are entitled to make a compensation claim. To do this, you can use the expert services of an injury lawyer in Austwick and the expert advice of Accident Advice Helpline.
However, we also realise you may have many questions about the whole compensation process such as…
Asking for compensation is a form of legal action, so that means I have to go to court, right?
No, not necessarily. Most of our clients are surprised, not to mention relieved, to find that they can often make their claim for compensation with an injury lawyer in Austwick without leaving the comfort of their own home. So, there is no need to ask for time off work or book days off to appear in court as it is highly unlikely you will need to attend any court case. Court action is only usually apparent in cases that are complex and contested.
But you need to have seen a doctor about your injuries so that means a visit to a medical assessment appointment or something…?!
Again, this is highly unlikely except in cases that are complex (aside from the medical attention you received following your accident). An injury lawyer Austwick specialist will be able to give you all the information about your case, as well as the likelihood of you needing to attend an independent medical assessment.
But, with the spotlight on attempted bogus compensation claims, here at Accident Advice Helpline we have developed an assessment tool that will show you the eligibility – or not – of your claim. Your answers to these few simple questions will also give an indication to our advisers if you have an eligible compensation claim.
Once we have these details, we will need to gather some more detail from you; by doing this, we are able to assign the best injury lawyer to your case.
