A personal injury lawyer in Kirkby Stephen may be able to help you claim compensation
Accidents can happen all of the time. In fact, every year over 3 million people are involved in accidents and sustain injuries, every year in the UK. Many of these injured parties were not to blame for the accident in question, and the law says they should be compensated by the guilty party for the suffering they have been caused. Compensation is usually in the form of money, and is meant to help victims cope with what they have had to endure.
Common types of accident
If sometime within the last three years you have been injured due to an accident that was not your fault, then you may be able to make an injury claim using a personal injury lawyer in Kirkby Stephen. There are no rules about the types of accidents — they are all covered — but some of the more common ones are:
- Faulty goods that cause harm;
- Medical negligence;
- Accidents at work;
- Holiday accidents;
- Road traffic accidents;
- Slips, trips or falls;
- Food poisoning; and
- Industrial illnesses or diseases.
These are just a few accidents that can occur. There are many more, and if you are injured in one of them through no fault of your own then you may be able to make a claim.
What you can claim for
You can recover material things that have cost or lost you money as part of your claim, because it’s not just the pain and suffering and stress that you have had to endure. Things for which you can claim include:
- Travel expenses;
- Medical expenses;
- Loss of earnings;
- Care costs;
- Funeral costs in the case of a fatality;
- Home adaption or home moving costs;
- Replacement of equipment and accessories; and
- Any other costs or losses that are a direct result of the accident.
It does not matter if you forget something, because everything will be investigated in your compensation claim to make sure that all things are accounted for.
