Here’s a look at how different types of accidents are treated somewhat differently.
Finding Pontypool accident claim solicitors
First of all let’s look at the basic rules surrounding personal injury law in this country. These state that if you are injured in an accident which is not your fault, you may well be entitled to claim compensation. The injuries need to be bad enough to have a measurable impact on your quality of life and you need to have been injured within the last three years.
Most common types of claims
There are three different types of claim which are made much more often than any others. These are road traffic accidents, slips, trips and falls in the street and injuries while in the workplace. Each brings with it a separate challenge.
Road traffic accidents, for example, can be difficult to assess if both sides think the other was at fault. These incidents are over in a flash and sometimes the only way to be certain about what happened is to ask the opinion of someone who was there. If you are confident of your case you will want as much information available as possible, so take down the names of any witnesses and pass these onto your lawyer. They will contact them in due course.
If you’re injured in the street meanwhile you will probably find yourself claiming against the local council. They will be responsible for ensuring safety in most public areas, and if negligence can be proven you will be able to make a personal injury claim.
Injuries in the workplace occur everyday. Some are minor and not every single one involves negligence. However, in those cases where negligence can be proven it’s a good idea to get as much information as possible. People are sometimes worried that making this kind of claim will see them lose their job or miss out on promotions.
However it is against the law for your employer to discriminate against you because you have made a claim for compensation.
These, then are the most common types of claims. To handle them you should be able to find Pontypool accident claim solicitors with the right type of expertise – Accident Advice Helpline lawyers.
