    Filing personal injury compensation claims in South Hams

    Do you need help with filing personal injury compensation claims in South Hams? If you think that you have a case for making a personal injury compensation claim, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline.

    Eligibility for making a claim for injuries

    If you were to blame for the accident in which you were injured then, you would not be eligible to file one of those personal injury compensation claims in South Hams. You must be able to prove that the accident in which you sustained your injuries was not your fault. Apart from that, you must also demonstrate that another person caused the accident.

    After any accident in which you were injured you should have received medical treatment as soon as was practicable. You will need your medical records if you proceed with a claim. It is these records that are used to calculate the amount of compensation you can receive for your pain, distress and suffering. Also if you are unable to do a hobby or sport that you enjoyed doing prior to your accident, you may be entitled to compensation for loss of amenity.

    If you sustained your injury in a road traffic accident, or an accident in a public place and the police were at the scene, you will need the police accident report. This should prove that you were not to blame for the accident.

    Slips, trips and falls

    The most common causes of accidents are slips, trips and falls, as these can occur anywhere. You may have been shopping in your local supermarket and slipped on a wet patch on the floor where there had been a spillage. If you then fractured an arm or leg, you may be able to make a claim against the owners of the supermarket.

    Staff in shops and supermarkets should clean up spillages and erect warning signs to alert customers to the danger. If these had not been in place and you slipped and fell, you probably have a valid claim to make for your injuries.
