This article will show you first what you could be entitled to claim for, and also how to find a personal injury lawyer in Acton who will be suitable for your case.We all live busy lives and it’s no surprise that accidents can happen.
But the pace of life can sometimes be so ferocious that many of us do not stop to think whether the accident we’ve just suffered might make us entitled to claim compensation. This is a shame, because many people miss out on the support to which they could be entitled, just because they don’t stop to think.
When you can claim
The basic principles of making a claim are fairly clearly laid down. Under UK law, you can claim for any accident that was not your fault which happened within the last three years. However, don’t forget that you also must have received medical attention; the concept is for people who have suffered relatively severe and ongoing problems.
Types of injuries
Almost any type of injury can be included in a compensation claim. The most common tend to be slips and falls in public, workplace injuries, and road traffic accidents, but it could also be food poisoning or an illness contracted through medical malpractice. What counts is whether your health problems are a result of someone else’s mistake.
These different injuries, though, tend to require someone with specialist expertise because the challenge of making a claim can occasionally vary depending on the type of accident. A road traffic injury could hinge on evidence which could prove or disprove your case.
Equally, making a claim for an injury in the workplace requires someone with a knowledge of employment law. So, when choosing a personal injury lawyer in Acton, try to take that into account.
Longer lasting conditions
What is often forgotten about, though, are things such as asbestos poisoning and industrial deafness. These are longer lasting problems which can arise over time. This means that you may not have pinpointed how they happened, and as a result many people live with these issues without making a claim. We believe that’s a shame, and will offer any information for people who think they have a condition which could have been prevented had their employer followed better safety practices.
