    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Esther Rantzen

    Lawyer in Clapham

    It is estimated that over half a million accident claims are made every year in the UK so the law of averages dictates that a proportion of these will have to take place in the Clapham area and that these will be dealt with by a personal injury lawyer in Clapham. The claims are made by victims who have been injured in accidents or incidents that were not their fault.

    Successful accident claims require the injured person to be able to identify who was at fault and then a personal injury lawyer can start the process to recover compensation from that person. Compensation is a legal term that is used to describe the money that is received for the actual injury and for any financial loss that has resulted from that injury.

    Injuries dealt with by a personal injury lawyer in Clapham

    Any injury can be claimed for although there will have to be some evidence that the injury is genuine and this is provided by the medical notes that were made when you sought medical attention. This may have been at a hospital or at your local family doctor. Some common injuries would be:

    • Whiplash
    • Broken bones
    • Head injuries
    • Cuts and lacerations
    • Electrocutions
    • Sprained ankles
    • Psychological injuries

    A personal injury lawyer in Clapham can also help you claim for diseases that have developed as a result of your occupation. Industrial diseases include things like chest diseases in workers who were exposed to dusty conditions without proper breathing apparatus.

    • Loss of regular overtime payments
    • Travel
    • Car parking
