On hearing the name Newark and Sherwood, many people will automatically just focus on the Sherwood part of the name – and it does, after all, contain the legendary Sherwood Forest within its boundaries. Accidents here are not that common, but they do happen.
What kinds of personal injury compensation claims in Newark and Sherwood are likely to be made? Possibly something related to the strong tourism trade here, or something a fellow visitor has done, or didn’t do. Negligent actions, or inactions, are never great to begin with but they are worse when they hurt other people.
Nobody is running around Sherwood Forest anymore, loosing arrows without a care in the world, but there is still plenty of opportunity for accidents to strike the unwary, the unwitting and the undeserving. There is something that accident victims can do, though, so they don’t have to take it lying down so to speak.
Personal injury compensation claims in Newark and Sherwood
Even just walking around town can end in unpleasantness, and from a variety of different sources. You could trip over a loose flagstone, fall into an open ‘manhole’ or even get hurt from debris falling from a building that is being worked on. In all of these scenarios, there are examples that could be found where accident could happen and not be the fault of the accident victim.
If somebody has been hurt in an accident, any accident, that they did not cause then that person has the right to make personal injury compensation claims in Newark and Sherwood – that isn’t just us saying it, the law says it too. To help with this endeavor, something called the conditional fee agreement was created.
This agreement makes sure that anybody with a genuine claim, that meets certain requirements, will be able to get legal help even if they only have 10p to their names. This is done by not making any charges upfront, and waiving charges at the end if the claim is not successful for any reason.
Accident Advice Helpline have been pursuing cases under the terms of the conditional fee agreement since our inception, way back in 2000. To get us on your side with your case, you just need to call.
