Every year, thousands of people suffer personal injuries as a result of someone else’s negligence. Many feel too anxious to claim compensation, or do not realise that they are eligible to pursue a claim.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that the effects of a no-fault accident can often be just as traumatic as the accident itself. Accident victims may need to make several trips to the hospital, take considerable time off work, and depend on their close friends and family for care and support.
If you have suffered an injury in an accident that was caused by someone else, we can instruct one of our personal injury lawyers to fight for compensation on your behalf. Our experienced team can offer you guidance on a wide range of accident claims, including road traffic accidents, accidents at work, and slip, trip and fall accidents.
Road traffic accidents
If you have suffered an injury in a road traffic accident, one of our skilled accident lawyers may be able to help you claim compensation for your pain, suffering and financial losses.
Accidents at work
Your employer has a legal and moral duty to ensure that your working environment is safe and free from hazards. If your employer has failed to comply with health and safety regulations, and you have sustained an injury as a result of his or her negligence, your accident lawyer in Southwold will ensure that your employer’s insurance company provides you with a fair compensation settlement.
Slip, trip and fall accidents
Your local authority has a statutory duty to ensure that defective roads and pavements are repaired in a timely manner. If it fails to fulfil its legal obligations, and you fall over a pothole or trip over an uneven patch of pavement, your accident lawyer in Southwold could help you to receive compensation.
Supermarkets, shops and other businesses open to the public also have a duty to keep their premises clear and safe. If they fail to do so, and you slip on a food spillage or trip over an empty cardboard box left in an aisle, then your accident lawyer will ensure that you are not left out of pocket.
