At Accident Advice Helpline, we provide expert personal injury claims advice in West Dunbartonshire to victims of non fault accidents. On this page, we are going to take a little look at the types of claims that we are able to provide assistance for.
Traffic accident compensation claims
Accident Advice Helpline deals with more personal injury claims in West Dunbartonshire involving car accidents than anything else. This is not necessarily down to the fact that the roads of this area are an inherently dangerous place. It is, simply, down to the fact that most of us are at more of a risk of being involved in a car accident than anything else. Remember, when you are travelling in a vehicle, you are at the whim of every other driver on the roads. You could be driving with great care. However, if just one person on the road is not paying attention, this can result in an accident.
Workplace accident compensation claims
The workplace, particularly in the construction and manufacturing industry, is inherently dangerous. Bits and pieces could fall on your head. You could trip over something left out of place. You may fall from a height. Pieces of safety equipment may break. You may even find yourself stuck in a piece of machinery. If none of this is your fault, you may have grounds to make a compensation claim with Accident Advice Helpline.
We deal with compensation claims where the employer may have some sort of liability. After all, there is absolutely no reason as to why you should be left out pocket due to the negligence of another person. You should not have to pay costs, simply, because the employer provided you with inadequate training or because they provided you with lacklustre equipment.
Accidents in public
The local council, and the government to some extent, has a duty to ensure that their roads and pavements are in good condition. Just a small pavement tile out of place can cause a rather nasty fall. If this happens, you may have grounds to make a claim for compensation.
You may even have grounds to make a claim for compensation due to injuries at your local supermarket if you have tripped and fallen on a wet floor, or perhaps something which was not cleaned up properly, or even merchandise which has been left in an incorrect location.
In short, if you have suffered an injury and it is not your fault, you may be able to work with Accident Advice Helpline to claim compensation.
