    Personal Injury in Somerset


    If you suffer a personal injury in Somerset, there are certain criteria you have to comply with if you want to make a personal injury claim and this is the first thing Accident Advice Helpline will need to check.

    The rules for making compensation claim after a personal injury in Somerset

    These rules are not just if you use the services of Accident Advice Helpline to make your claim, they are a legal requirement for anyone that wants to pursue compensation.

    • The accident must have been the fault of someone else
    • You must have been injured in the accident
    • Your injuries must have needed medical attention
    • The accident must have happened some time in the last three years

    The accidents in which you could sustain a personal injury in Somerset

    There is no end to the types of accidents that some one else can cause you to be injured in, including:

    • Road traffic accidents
    • Slips, trips and falls
    • Accidents at work
    • Industrial illnesses and conditions
    • Animal attacks
    • Food poisoning
    • Accidents at school

    As long as they fit the rules, all accidents come with the realms of making a personal injury claim for compensation.

    The injuries sustained in these accidents can vary greatly in their severity, and the way victims react to them is different as well. Different lifestyles will mean they impact on some lives more than others, just as some victims will recover from an injury quicker than others.

    When you are making a personal injury claim, this all has to be considered, as there are some injuries that will change the life of the victim and those close to them, and of course there are some victims who lose their life in an accident that was not their own fault.
