Have you been injured whilst out and about?
Although accidents are generally unexpected, they always seem to take us by surprise when they do occur. Whilst they may seem like something that happens to other people, accidents can strike at any time and anyone can sustain sudden and unexpected injuries.
In some cases, people get hurt when simply walking down a local street. If you’re walking in front of shops, for example, you could trip on a loose paving stone or you could be struck by loose shop signage. Although these scenarios are not uncommon, they can result in serious injuries and you may need to access urgent medical care.
Once you’ve obtained the treatment you need, you may begin to think about making a claim for compensation.
Could personal injury claim solicitors in Derbyshire help you?
If you’ve suffered an injury which wasn’t your fault, you may want to seek advice from professionals before you decide whether or not you want to make a claim for compensation. At Accident Advice Helpline we’re always happy to assist potential new claimants and our personal injury team will be able to answer any questions you have about the claims process.
We can also offer free no obligation advice so you will be able to learn more without having to pay any upfront fees.
If the injury was caused by someone or something else, there’s a good chance that you will be able to take legal action. However, you’ll also need to show that you obtained medical treatment for your injuries and most claimants will need to take action within three years in order to successfully obtain compensation for their injuries.
If you believe that you meet this criteria, contact Accident Advice Helpline today and find out more about making a claim.
What type of injuries can you make a claim for?
Providing you obtained medical treatment, you can make a claim for almost any type of injury. Although the severity of your injuries may affect how much compensation you receive, even claimants with relatively minor injuries can receive large amounts of compensation.
Don’t forget – you don’t only have to make a claim for physical injuries. If the incident harmed you psychologically, you could be awarded extra compensation.
