When could a lawyer in Bathgate help with a personal injury claim?
Usually, to claim for compensation after an accident, there are certain criteria that must be met. And with a few details, Accident Advice Helpline can help advise you on whether you are able to make a claim. We can even find you a specialist lawyer in Bathgate to fight your case. The typical circumstances must be:
- That your accident occurred within the last three years. However, there are some exceptions to this, for example, accidents involving minors or industrial diseases.
- You should have had to receive medical treatment for your injury.
- Someone else must have been wholly or partially to blame for your accident. This could be an individual, a company or even the local authority. They may have been careless, negligent or could have committed a criminal act which makes them responsible for the conditions that caused your accident.
Your accident could have occurred in any of the following situations:
- Road traffic accidents, where the claimant is the driver, passenger or a pedestrian
- Accidents and industrial diseases at work
- Accidents on holiday
- Slips, trips and falls
- Food poisoning
- Injuries caused by faulty goods
- Sporting accidents
But there are plenty of other circumstances we can deal with too, so contact us if you want to find out whether your accident is eligible.
