Covering over eleven square miles, the London Borough of Haringey is a well-known part of the City. Although much of Haringey is residential, there are also a number of businesses based in the area. In addition to this, the range of attractions and landmarks situated in the borough means that many visitors and tourists pass through Haringey every day.
As in any London Borough, the roads in and around Haringey can get very busy. Unfortunately, accidents can occur here from time to time and people may need to claim road traffic accident compensation in Haringey as a result.
Although making a compensation claim may not be the first thing on your mind after an accident, it is something you should consider.
Unfortunately, road traffic accidents can affect people’s finances, as well as their health. If you sustain an injury, for example, you’ll need to obtain medical help. If you then need to pay for prescriptions for medications, this is an unforeseen cost which has arisen because of the accident.
Similarly, if you need to be treated in hospital, or if you need to rest and recover, you may need to hire someone to help care for your children. As childcare can be fairly expensive, you may find it difficult to fund additional help.
Although your outgoings may increase after an accident, there is a chance that you could lose some or all of your income. If you need to take time off work, for example, you may not receive your usual wage in sick pay. This could leave you at a financial disadvantage.
However, if you’re able to make a successful compensation claim, you could obtain compensation for your injuries and you could also claim back the cost of any expenses you’ve incurred.
Are you eligible to make a claim?
If you were hurt in an accident that wasn’t your fault and you obtained medical treatment for your injuries, you should be eligible to make a claim. However, you will need to take legal action within three years of the incident in order to obtain compensation.
If you’ve been injured and you think you might be eligible to make a claim, why not contact our dedicated personal injury team and discuss your options?
