The village and civil parish of Chacombe in South Northamptonshire lies just three miles from Banbury. Once, the bellfounding industry was big news here, but today you are more likely to find the 659 or so people who call the parish home commuting to work in the nearby towns and cities. That means finding a personal injury lawyer in Chacombe could prove too much of a challenge for some. But you don’t always need to use a local lawyer if you have been injured and need legal advice. Accident Advice Helpline’s teams cover the whole of the UK, which means if you have been injured you can get advice and proceed with a claim without ever having to set foot in a lawyer’s office – most claims can be handled in full over the phone.
Why do you need a personal injury lawyer in Chacombe?
From a zombie apocalypse to food poisoning after a meal out, there are all kinds of reasons why you might find yourself in need of a personal injury lawyer in Chacombe. One of the most common types of claims we deal with is claims for injuries sustained in a road traffic accident. Driving can be dangerous, and no matter how safe a driver you are, you’re reliant on the actions of others to stay safe on the roads. If you’re injured and another driver is to blame then you might want to get in touch with us to find out if you could make a personal injury claim. But what sorts of injuries could you sustain in a road traffic accident?
Common road traffic accident injuries
Since 2000, we have helped thousands of people to claim compensation for injuries sustained in road traffic accidents, and here are some of the most common we have come across:
- Cuts and bruises
- Head injuries ranging from concussion to skull fractures and brain injuries
- Facial injuries
- Eye injuries
- Crush injuries
- Broken bones
- Dislocated shoulder
Whatever type of injuries you have sustained, whether you were driving, travelling as a passenger or even crossing the road as a pedestrian, if somebody else is to blame for your accident then you’re entitled to compensation. You could be compensated not only for your injuries but also for your loss of earnings, if, for example, you have taken time off work after your accident.
Compensation for loss of earnings
Many people assume that they’ll automatically receive statutory sick pay if they are off work recovering after an accident. Whilst this is true in many cases, your sick pay will only be a fraction of your normal salary. Self-employed people aren’t eligible for statutory sick pay, so if you’ve been injured whilst working for yourself, you could be in trouble. That’s why making a personal injury claim can help, as you could be entitled to compensation for your loss of earnings.
