If you were to say you wanted to know more about making a personal injury claim in St Helens, you could be talking about a variety of locations. For example, there is a St Helens in Merseyside, not to mention another one in the Isle of Wight. You will also find a place with the same name in East Sussex.
Different areas have their own array of services locally. The larger the area, the easier it is to find more obscure services that may not exist in smaller towns and villages. You might find it harder to locate a solicitor who focuses on personal injury claims if you were in a small village for example – such as St Helens on the Isle of Wight.
How serious must a personal injury be to make a claim?
The seriousness of any injury will be looked at when considering any compensation claim. However, you don’t have to be seriously hurt to make a claim – you must just be able to prove a third party was at fault. This means proving negligence, which is something a personal injury lawyer can help you figure out.
Of course, minor injuries caused by someone else’s negligence will not receive as much compensation in a successful payout as injuries that will forever change the life of the person who suffered from them. Minor whiplash is a long way from a fractured vertebra, for example. Lots of different elements are borne in mind when assessing a successful claim.
