Injury claim solicitors in Falkirk
Although we at Accident Advice Helpline are not based in Falkirk, we do have members of our legal team who are based in the area. You won’t find us under injury claim solicitors in Falkirk, but we do have an excellent success rate in securing compensation for our clients.
Types of injury you can claim compensation for
You can claim for injuries from trips, slips and falls, which are the most common causes of personal injury, as they can occur almost everywhere, on the street, in shops, in parks, at work and so on. For these you have to prove that the responsible authority or owner had not given sufficient warning of the danger of, for example a broken surface, an open manhole or a wet floor and so on.
You can claim for sports injuries if, for example, you fell on a surface which had not been properly maintained, or if you were the victim of an illegal tackle in a team game such as hockey, basketball and so on.
Some of the most common personal injuries are sustained in the workplace, in offices as well as on construction sites. You may have been diagnosed with repetitive strain injury because your employer has ignored the Health and Safety at Work Regulations for employees who use a computer. You may have been issued faulty equipment on a construction site. When you can prove negligence, you have grounds for a personal injury claim.
Road accidents are unfortunately common on British roads, and as long as your accident was not your fault you can claim compensation for personal injury. The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the severity of your injury.
Accidents in the home could be claimed for too, if, for example a fire began because of faulty electrical equipment, or perhaps your new microwave was defective and you sustained an injury when first using it. As long as you were using it correctly, you have a case for a claim against the manufacturer if you sustained an injury because of it.
If you were to look up injury claim solicitors in the business pages of the Falkirk phonebook or online, you may not find one that has experience in seeking compensation for your type of injury. You could also waste a good deal of time and effort in trying to track one down that is a specialist in winning compensation cases for the kind of injury you have suffered.
