The personal injury lawyer Largs holidaymakers often turn to when they sustain an injury through no fault of their own is Accident Advice Helpline.
AAH act as the personal injury lawyer Largs holidaymakers and residents use to claim compensation
Getting injured, isn’t anybody’s idea of fun when they go on holiday, but accidents, as they say, do happen, and if that accident is the fault of a third party, the injured person may well be within their rights to ask us here at AAH, the personal injury lawyer Largs holidaymakers often turn to, to raise a claim for compensation on their behalf.
Slips, trips and falls are the commonest causes of injury
The most common sort of injuries that holidaymakers sustain are from slips, trips and falls, and very often these happen through sheer carelessness. In this case it’s not possible to raise an injury claim for compensation. But if a fall happens because someone else left a trip hazard in the way, or the flooring of the Esplanade was left in a slippery condition, or something else that is clearly a third party’s fault, then it may well be possible to launch an injury claim.
However the injury that is sustained must be of a reasonably serious nature, like a broken limb; not just a sprain, minor cut, or bruise. If for example the accident victim has osteoporosis, broken bones are a very likely outcome of any fall, even one that seems quite innocuous at the time.
Injuries are not always immediately apparent. Things like concussion can set in at a later date. It’s very important that if you injure your head, you should attend a hospital A&E department just to get checked out. Some injuries, things like occupational related illnesses such as asbestosis, do not become apparent until sometime after the event, or exposure.
Under normal circumstances, the three-year statute of limitations applies to any injury claim, but on rare occasions, this can be waived if just cause can be shown as to why the claim wasn’t raised earlier.
