    "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."

    Lawyer in Sunderland


    How an injury lawyer in Sunderland can help you to claim compensation

    If you have suffered an injury which required medical attention as a result of an accident that was not your own fault, then you may be able to make an injury claim, providing:

    • You sustained injuries in the accident;
    • You were not at fault and did not cause the accident;
    • You needed medical attention for your injuries; and
    • The accident happened within the last three years.

    The type of injuries doesn’t matter

    Everyone if affected differently by their injuries, just like everything else in life — what is a catastrophe to one person might be just a niggle to another. Whether your injuries are mild or severe, you may be able to make an injury claim for any of the following:

    • Sprains;
    • Burns and scalds;
    • Whiplash;
    • Head and brain injuries;
    • Back and spinal injuries;
    • Facial injuries;
    • Fractures;
    • Biker’s arm;
    • Soft tissue injuries;
    • Road rash; and
    • Sight problems.

    All of these injuries, plus many more, would come within the scope of a personal injury compensation claim.

    The type of accident doesn’t matter, either

    Accidents happen every day — over 3 million of them in the UK last year. They are always unexpected and can be traumatic. Examples of accidents that may result in an injury claim are:

    • Fatal injury accidents;
    • Medical negligence;
    • Road traffic accidents;
    • Work-related accidents;
    • Industrial illnesses and diseases;
    • Slips, trips and falls;
    • Walking and hiking accidents;
    • Food poisoning;
    • Holiday accidents;
    • Faulty goods accidents;
    • Educational facility accidents; and
    • Sporting accidents.

    You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if any of these accidents, or any other accident, happened to you and was not your fault.
