Have you been thinking of starting a compensation claim following an accident? You are not alone, you are just one of thousands of people who approach personal injury lawyers across the country on a daily basis. If you are in the process of looking for somewhere to start your compensation claim, then you might need to find a personal injury lawyer in Adderbury, or alternatively, you can use a national organisation such as ours, Accident Advice Helpline. Most claims can be dealt with over the telephone with no need for face to face contact.
Types of injury claim
So that you have a better idea of injury claims and what types there are, here is a list of common claim types:
- Slips, trips and falls;
- Road accidents;
- Accidents at work; and
- Accidents in a public place.
An accident will only be considered grounds for compensation if someone can be proven to have been negligent and responsible for the accident. Claims are commonly made against the following groups:
- Restaurant and retail premise owners;
- Councils and other local bodies;
- Medical professionals; and
- Drivers and other road users.
An accident, illness or injury caused by any of the above would be seen as grounds for a compensation claim by any personal injury lawyer in Adderbury, but they would also need to know that you satisfied the national criteria for making a claim before they took your case on board.
Do you qualify for a claim?
To meet the national legal criteria, your accident must fit into the following guidelines: it must have happened within the last three years, been caused by someone else either directly or indirectly, and required medical attention as a result.
