If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault and those injuries needed medical attention, you could make a claim in South Somerset. Accident Advice Helpline is here to help you. We can help you claim the compensation you are entitled to, proving the accident happened within the last three years.
What can claims be made for?
Any type of accident can be included in a personal injury claim, as long as it was the fault of someone else. Some of the more common ones we handle are:
- Road traffic accidents
- Work related accidents
- Industrial illnesses and diseases
- Food poisoning
- Medical negligence
- Slip, trips and falls
- Holiday accidents
- Accidents in educational facilities
Any of these, or any other type of accident you can think of, can be the cause of a victim making a personal injury claim.
What are the injuries that you can make a claim in South Somerset for?
The list of injuries that occur in accidents is endless, but some of them are more common than others, such as:
- Broken bones
- Facial injuries
- Back and spinal injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Burns and scalds
- Internal injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Joint damage
Some injuries can change the life of the victim totally and this has to be accounted for when you are making a personal injury compensation claim.
What else can you claim for?
Any cost or loss that arises from the accident can be claimed for. Some of the items that could be included in a claim are:
- Pain and suffering
- Anxiety and stress
- Loss of earnings
- Travel costs
- Medical expenses
- Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident
You will have to prove the costs and losses, so keep receipts for everything you have to pay because of the accident.
