If you have been injured, then look no further than Accident Advice Helpline if you wish to have your claim fought by some of the best personal injury solicitors UK-wide from our large panel of legal partners.
If you are injured in an accident that is not your fault, you may wish to claim compensation. In order to do that, you need the services of personal injury solicitors in the UK.
Below are two of the common accident types for which our solicitors would help you claim compensation.
Personal injury solicitors in the UK for car claims
The most common type of car crash injury and the injury for which most people need a UK personal injury claim solicitor is undoubtedly whiplash, most commonly suffered by the occupants of a car that is struck from behind by another vehicle whose driver has not been paying attention, or who has lost control. It can also occur in the event of head on collisions and side impacts.
Each case depends on individual circumstances, of course, but the average successful whiplash claim brought by victims’ UK personal injury claim solicitors usually attracts an award in the region of between £2,000 and £4,000. This is because whiplash can mean a person is unable to work or go about their daily routine for several weeks.
Having said that, in 2010 the record for the UK’s highest compensation payment was broken three times.
UK personal injury in a work accident
Your employer is responsible for your safety, and is liable to face prosecution by the Health and Safety Executive if they do not fulfil that obligation sufficiently. Prosecution in turn leads to companies being fined and to employees seeking compensation for their injuries.
Your employer has to make sure they come up to scratch in all areas of the environment they provide for you. This means that they must train you and all your colleagues to do the job they ask of you, and thoroughly; they must provide you with the correct equipment, whether this be protective gear or the correct machinery to perform a task safely and they must ensure that your physical environment is safe.
If you have an accident at work and it genuinely isn’t your fault, then you can get in touch with our personal injury solicitors in the UK today.
