At some point within the last three years have you been involved in a road accident in Salford or any other accident? If this is the case and the accident was not your own fault and as a result you were injured and needed medical treatment, then you should talk to an injury lawyer at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you in making a compensation claim.
A road accident in Salford and why an Injury solicitor will explain more
In the UK there are over 3 million accidents every year. The majority of those will produce blameless victims, people who have been hurt through no fault of their own. This happens in all sorts of road accidents in Salford but just a few of the ones an injury solicitor comes across more often are:
- Road traffic accidents
- Food poisoning
- Industrial illnesses and conditions
- Holiday accidents
- Slip, trips and falls
- Accidents at school or college
- Hiking accidents
- Criminal injuries
- Medical negligence
- Work related accidents
It does not matter what type of accident you were in, they all fall within the scope of a personal injury compensation claim.
The injuries you may sustain in a road accident in Salford
Here are a few injuries, but there are lots of other ones as well, and as long as yours was severe enough to need medical attention, you would be entitled to make the compensation claim. Such as:
- Back and spinal injuries
- Burns and scalds
- Facial injuries
- Head and brain injuries
- Joint damage
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Broken bones
- Eye injuries
Some of these injuries can have life changing effects, not just for the victim but for those close to them as well, which is exactly why UK law says whoever caused the accident should financially compensate you for the suffering they have caused.
How we can help
Accident Advice Helpline was established specifically to provide access to justice for the non-fault victims of accidents. Over the last 15 years we have helped many thousands of victims get the compensation they deserved.
We do this on the no win, no fee basis as this means anyone can make a claim. No money is needed to start the claim and no money is needed if the claim is lost.
Our solicitors will ensure that every aspect of your claim is accounted for. They will look at all the costs and losses you have incurred because of the accident, such things as loss of earnings and extra medical costs. All of these are reclaimable but you have to keep the receipts as proof of payment. In the case of lost earnings they will need wage slips or confirmation from your employer as to the reduction in your income. If you work for yourself, a letter from your accountant should be enough.
We have a 30-second test, which lets you know if you have a valid claim as well as giving you an estimate of the amount you may be awarded.
Or you can call our helpline on 0800 689 0500 and speak to one of our friendly advisors for all the information you will need about making your personal injury compensation claim.
