You may be able to use a personal injury lawyer in Kings Sutton to make a compensation claim if you are injured in an accident that was not your fault
Accidents can happen at any time of the day or night, and in any place in the world. They are usually sudden and unexpected, causing trauma to all involved, especially innocent victims who were not to blame. Just a few samples accidents are:
- Work-related accidents;
- Road traffic accidents;
- Holiday accidents;
- Food poisoning;
- Accidents at school;
- Industrial disease or illness;
- Medical negligence; and
- Slips, trips or falls.
If you suffer from one of these, or any other accident, and you are injured as a result, as long as you were a blameless victim you may be entitled to use a personal injury lawyer in Kings Sutton to help you to make a personal injury compensation claim.
Your personal injury lawyer in Kings Sutton will have to deal with different companies to settle your claim
Often at the other end of a compensation claim there is a large organisation of some sort. This could be:
- Product liability insurers;
- The Motor Insurers’ Bureau;
- Motor insurance companies;
- Local authorities;
- Health trusts;
- Employers’ liability insurers;
- Government departments;
- Criminal Injury Compensation Authority; or
- Public liability insurers.
A personal injury lawyer in Kings Sutton is used to dealing with large companies, so will know how to present your claim in the way they like.
The criteria for making a claim
The criteria for your accident and your injuries are as follows:
- A criminal injury should have happened within the last two years;
- An accident should have happened within the last three years;
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention; and
- The accident, or assault, must have been no fault of your own.
The other things that can be claimed for
Material items can also be claimed for, in addition to your pain and suffering and the stress and anxiety you have been caused. For example, you can claim for:
- Extra medical expenses;
- Travel coats;
- Home adaption costs;
- Replacement of accessories and equipment; and
- Any other costs that occurred because of the accident.
You can also claim for your loss of earnings, but just like with the costs you have incurred, you will need to prove the figures to be able to recover them as part of your claim.
