Legal Claims In Somerset


Are you wondering how you file legal claims in Somerset for personal injuries? Instead of wondering, call us at Accident Advice Helpline if you believe that you have a claim to make.

Making legal claims in Somerset for injuries

You could be eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you can prove two main things.

  • You were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured.
  • Someone else caused the accident.

You will also need to prove, with your medical records, that you received treatment for your injuries as soon as you could have done after the accident.

If the police attended the accident scene, they will have investigated its causes. When they are satisfied that they have discovered the causes of the accident, they will compile an accident report. This should help you prove that you were not responsible for the accident. A copy of it will be needed if you proceed with a personal injury compensation claim.

Accidents in the street

If you have an accident in the street, you may be able to prove that the negligence of the local authority caused your accident. It has the responsibility for keeping roads and pavements in a state of good repair. Therefore, if you sprain your ankle because your foot got lodged in a pothole while you were crossing the road, you might be able to make a claim against it. This is because you could prove that the members of the highway department had been negligent in their duty.

If you tripped because the pavement was uneven and you were injured, you might also be eligible to make a claim against the local authority.

If you tripped and fell because a manhole cover had not been properly replaced, or if you fell into the hole because it had not been covered after work had been carried out underground, you may be able to make a claim against the utilities company whose property it is. The workers had been negligent in their duties and so caused your accident and injury.

The police are usually needed if you have an accident in the street, so call them and an ambulance if you are unfortunate enough to be injured in such an accident.
