Accidents in the UK
There are over 3 million accidents happening every single year in the United Kingdom – accidents of all kinds. Many of them are small events and the person injured is at fault for them, but there are also a lot of victims in the UK who are injured through no fault of their own. Sometimes, these injuries can change the lives of victims and their families forever.
If you have been injured in an accident that was in no way your fault, if your injuries needed medical attention and the accident took place in the last three years, then according to the law you are entitled to claim compensation from the person at fault.
If this sounds like what happened to you, contacting Accident Advice Helpline for a personal injury lawyer in Reigate is the most sensible thing you could do at this point.
Contacting a personal injury lawyer in Reigate after a road traffic accident
Road-related accidents take the lives of five people every single day in the UK and have caused many innocent victims to become seriously injured. If the injury has been something very serious like a brain injury, to those who live close with the victim it will seem like they are living with a different person – that’s if they are lucky to be able to stay at home at all. The majority of brain injury victims need 24-hour care, and no matter how young they are, they could spend the rest of their life in a care home.
Contacting a personal injury lawyer in Reigate after an accident at work
All employers in the UK have a legal duty to protect and preserve the health and safety of their employees while they are at work. If they fail in this and you have been injured because of their incompetence, you could be entitled to claim for injury compensation from them. It could be simply things like falling over something in a walkway which could cause a nasty injury, but what would be even worse is falling from a height, in which case you might be lucky to even make it out alive.
