Nearly everything you physically do carries some element of risk, so you never know when you might need a top injury claim solicitor like Accident Advice Helpline.
Slip, trip, and fall hazards are all around us
Slip, trip, and fall hazards can be found anywhere; around the home, in the workplace, in shops and shopping malls, and even just walking down the road. But in terms of sustaining an injury from a slip, trip or fall, you won’t be able to claim financial compensation, unless the cause of the accident/incident is the responsibility of a third party.
For example, if you were to trip over a raised paving stone, then it would be the local council who were responsible: or, if you were to slip on a patch of wet flooring in a supermarket, following a spillage, responsibility would fall on the store owners.
No win no fee* in Cranleigh
People sometimes comment that we live in a “claims culture.” But the fact of the matter is that people are simply becoming more aware of their rights in terms of claiming compensation for injuries they’ve sustained through no fault of their own. And it’s partly thanks to the various accident injury solicitors like ourselves here at Accident Advice Helpline.
Of course any injury sustained must be serious enough to warrant a no win no fee* in Cranleigh claim for financial compensation. Things like minor cuts and bruises are immediately discounted.
But if you were to severely sprain or twist an ankle or wrist, or fracture or break a bone, and the injury affected your lifestyle detrimentally, or your ability to work, then a claim could be justified.
Taking the “30 second test”
If you visit our website you’ll find a HOW MUCH calculator on the homepage. It requires six basic pieces of information to work. If you supply this, the calculator will indicate whether or not you have a claim, and will estimate the potential claim’s value. It’s open to anyone to use, and will take only 30 seconds of your time.
Three important factors to consider
There are three important factors to take into account if you are thinking about launching a personal injury claim using our no win no fee* in Cranleigh services as recommended by Esther Rantzen.
- The cause of the accident/incident from which you sustained the injury must be the fault of a third party
- Medical proof will be required as to the nature and severity of the injury, and it’s a good idea to take photographs, and gather the names and addresses of any witnesses
- In order for your claim to be valid, you must raise it within three years of the incident injury taking place
