It’s estimated that 70% of accident victims never claim, even though they are entitled to do so. If you’ve had an accident and need a lawyer in Bermondsey area and someone else was to blame, find out how Accident Advice Helpline could help you to claim with a specialist lawyer.
We respond to over 25,000 enquiries every month from people enquiring about their rights after an accident. But we know there are many more people out there who have had accidents and never think to find out if they might be eligible for compensation.
Common types of accident a lawyer from Accident Advice Helpline could deal with include:
- Road traffic accidents, where the claimant is the driver, passenger or a pedestrian
- Medical negligence
- Accidents and industrial diseases at work
- Accidents on holiday
- Slips, trips and falls
- Food poisoning
- Injuries caused by faulty goods
- Sporting accidents
- Criminal acts
But there are others, too. Contact us for free legal advice on whether your accident might qualify. In most cases, you have three years to claim after an accident. This isn’t always the case, though. In some cases, for example those involving a minor or where the injury is an industrial disease, you may have longer to claim.
To qualify, you need also to have sought medical treatment for your injuries, whether on a one-off or ongoing basis. Your injuries could have been physical, like broken limbs or whiplash. But there are also ‘hidden’ injuries that might qualify you, for example illnesses like repetitive strain injury or psychological illnesses such as depression or stress.
Finally, it has to be proved that someone else was responsible for your accident. They may have been simply careless. They may have been negligent. Or they may even have committed a criminal act.
