Here at Accident Advice Helpline we have noticed over the years that the number of personal injury claims in Hartlepool is rising.
We are not sure of the precise reason for this, but we have a few thoughts of our own.
One of the main reasons why we think the number of personal injury claims in Hartlepool are rising is because people are becoming increasingly aware of their right to make personal injury claims.
If you have been injured in an accident which was not your fault then you are perfectly within your rights to make a claim for compensation. If it is not more than three years since your accident then any one of our in house solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation that you are entitled to.
Individuals are also becoming more aware that any type of accident can be claimed for. Originally many people seemed to associate the clichéd slip, trip or fall with personal injury claims in Hartlepool; however, these days the public knows that while you can claim for such accidents you can also claim for accidents at work, accidents in public places and clinical negligence claims to name but a few.
Along with increased awareness is the improvement in rights for people in general but workers in particular. Employees are protected at work by a host of employment laws and regulations. These include guidelines that affect working hours and working conditions. Employers also have a responsibility to ensure that employees are fully trained to be able to do their jobs effectively, efficiently and most importantly safely. Any failings in this regard can give rise to personal injury claims in Hartlepool being made against them.
While awareness of such regulations had been hoped to reduce the number of accidents taking place in the work place, unfortunately in some instances it has just increased the number of claims being made. However, the more personal injury claims in Hartlepool that are made against reckless employers the more opportunity there is to put things right and improve working conditions for other individuals.
Another big impact is the conditional arrangement, or no win, no fee that many law firms, including Accident Advice Helpline offer to all clients. This arrangement whereby no fee is charged if no compensation is awarded removes one of the major barriers for making personal injury claims in Hartlepool – the feared cost associated with it.
As no money is charged up front, and no money is charged if the case is not a success, initiating a claim for compensation is no longer a potentially risky affair. In fact, you ultimately have nothing to lose by starting a claim and a lot to gain.
