You may think that personal injury compensation claims in Derbyshire are all about road traffic accidents on country roads and occupational accidents on farms but that is only part of the picture. Here we tell you about the range of claims that we here at Accident Advice Helpline deal with on a daily basis.
The range of personal injury compensation claims in Derbyshire
Any rural area is going to have its fair share of rural roads and these roads can be the scene of very nasty accidents. Country lanes can be unpredictable. It is often hard to see who is coming towards you because there are so many bends. It is also very hard to pass another vehicle because they are so narrow. Add to this the further hazards of livestock and slow moving agricultural vehicles and you have a potentially dangerous situation. There is often a lot of water and mud on country roads so if you do try and stop suddenly you may skid.
You really need your wits about you when driving on country roads and if another driver has failed to take the care and attention that they should have done it can result in an accident that was not your own fault. You can be left dealing with very nasty injuries and financial problems after the accident.
Farms are well known for the hazards that they present to employees. The animals themselves are large and unpredictable and can inflict very nasty injuries on the human body if they are not handled correctly. The agricultural machinery is also potentially hazardous as are the chemicals that are used.
If you are an employee in an agricultural setting and you have suffered an accident that was your employer’s fault then you may be able to start a compensation claim. You can call Accident Advice Helpline to find out more.
