Have you been hurt whilst out and about?
When accidents occur, they don’t always happen at home or work. In some cases, people can suffer unexpected injuries when going about their daily business. Nipping to a local shop, for example, can turn from a two minute task into a traumatic accident in the blink of an eye.
If you’ve been injured whilst out in public, you may need to consider taking legal action. If the area was unsafe or hazardous then someone else may be responsible for the accident and you could hold them to account.
If a pavement was left with cracked paving stones, for example, these could easily be seen as a tripping hazard. If they weren’t cordoned off or undergoing repairs and you tripped, the local council may be responsible for the injuries you sustained.
Before you begin taking legal action, however, you’ll want to confirm that you are eligible to obtain compensation with help from a lawyer in Halwill Junction.
Could you take action with a lawyer in Halwill Junction?
Providing someone or something else caused your injuries, you should have a good basis for making a claim. However, a lawyer in Halwill Junction will only be able to help you to take action if you’ve received medical treatment for your injuries. If you were treated by a medical professional following the incident, you should be able to move forward with a claim, regardless of how serious your injuries actually were.
Of course, you won’t be able to wait too long to take action with a personal injury lawyer in Halwill Junction. In most cases, claimants only have 3 years in which to take legal action after sustaining an injury so you’ll need to make your claim within this timeframe.
