Are you looking for a personal injury lawyer in Watchet? With a population of 3,785, this small harbour town in Somerset is a popular coastal holiday spot, lying on the boundaries of Exmoor National Park. Although life here once revolved around the import and export trade at the harbour, today it’s tourism that mostly boosts the local economy. So if you’re hunting for a lawyer in Watchet, you might be as well using a national firm of personal injury lawyers like Accident Advice Helpline. Our commitment to quality and 100% no-win, no-fee service means that you have less to worry about, and anybody can afford to make a claim with us.
Why do you need a lawyer in Watchet?
If you’ve been injured while visiting the area on holiday, working here or living here, you might want to find out if you can claim personal injury compensation. Generally speaking, you can make a claim if you have been injured as a direct result of somebody else’s negligence, although this will have to be proven. In order to make a claim with us, you’ll need to be able to answer ‘yes’ to these questions:
- Did you suffer injuries in an accident caused by somebody else?
- Did your accident happen in the last three years?
- Did you seek medical attention for your injuries?
Unfortunately, we can only help you to claim compensation if you received medical treatment for your injuries, even if they were minor. This is because we need to see evidence of your injuries, usually in the form of a medical report from your doctor.
Injured on the roads in Watchet
Every year, thousands of people are injured in road traffic accidents across the UK. Perhaps somebody ran into the back of your car while you were stopped at traffic lights on the school run. Maybe a reversing vehicle knocked you over as you were crossing the road with your shopping. Or perhaps a cyclist collided with you, leaving you suffering from minor injuries. If you’ve been injured in a road traffic accident, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to claim compensation for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings. The police generally attend any road traffic accident where injuries have occurred, and will be able to assign blame for the accident, making your life a little easier. You could even make a claim if the other driver is uninsured, as the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB) may be able to help you.
