If you have been the non-fault victim of an accident, you should contact the Malvern Hills law firm at Accident Advice Helpline. As long as you fit the criteria, which are legal requirements for every claim, you could be entitled to compensation. The rules are:
- The accident must have been the fault of someone else;
- You must have been injured in the accident;
- You must have received medical attention for your injuries; and
- The accident must have occurred within the last three years.
If this is the situation in which you find yourself, our Malvern Hills law firm will be able to help you make a compensation claim.
The types of accidents our Malvern Hills law firm covers
We will deal with any type of accident — none of them are barred from personal injury claims. Some of the more common ones we deal with include:
- Food poisoning;
- Medical negligence;
- Defective products that cause harm;
- Road traffic accidents;
- Animal attacks;
- Farming accidents;
- Construction accidents;
- Motorbike or bicycle accidents;
- Work-related accidents;
- Industrial illnesses or diseases;
- School, college and university accidents;
- Slips, trips, and falls;
- Holiday accidents; and
- Violent crimes.
Accidents are not fussy to whom they happen, and no one is immune from being injured in an accident that was not their own fault.
Other things to claim for
Most victims are aware that they can claim for their pain and suffering, but some do not realise there are other things they can claim for as well, such as:
- Anxiety and stress;
- The impact on your life;
- Your prospects for the future;
- Loss of earnings;
- Travel costs;
- Extra medical costs;
- Care costs;
- Home adaption costs if necessary; and
- Any other cost or loss that is a direct result of the accident.
You will need to prove any of the expenses or loss of income to be able to reclaim them, and should keep receipts for everything you have had to pay out. If you do not have wage slips to prove your loss of earnings, your employer or accountant will be asked to confirm the figures.
