Taking legal action after an accident
Generally, if you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t your fault, you should be able to make a claim for compensation. Providing you weren’t at fault and you obtained medical help for your injuries, a personal injury lawyer in Pentewan should be able to help you make a successful claim.
However, many people don’t access legal help or contact a personal injury lawyer in Pentewan simply because they don’t realise that they could be eligible to take action. In fact, you can make a claim after various types of accidents, such as:
Slips, trips and falls
These types of incidents occur regularly and can be caused by a number of factors. If you’ve tripped over loose wiring at work or slipped on an unmarked wet floor whilst shopping, you could be able to take legal action.
Although a slip or fall may not seem like a serious accident, it could cause a wide range of injuries so it’s certainly worth consulting a personal injury lawyer in Pentewan.
Whether you live in a village, town or city, you could be affected by a road traffic accident. Although people tend to think that smaller roads are safer, this doesn’t mean that accidents don’t occur in less populated areas.
Even if you don’t drive, you could still be injured by a car accident whilst walking, cycling or whilst travelling as a passenger. As these types of accidents can cause serious harm, it’s important to seek immediate medical assistance afterwards.
Faulty product injuries
As manufacturers are liable for injuries caused by their products, you could make a claim against a company or organisation, if you need to. If a faulty product causes you harm in some way, a personal injury lawyer in Pentewan could help you to take action against the company responsible.
Normally, testing the product will show any fault or defect so making this type of compensation claim could be relatively easy.
