There are a limitless number of ways accidents can happen, Scarborough road traffic accidents being just one of them. The three most common types of accidents that compensation is claimed for are slips, trips and fall, accidents at work and Scarborough road traffic accidents.
Claiming for Scarborough road traffic accidents
Last year there were about 190,000 road traffic accidents that involved serious injuries or deaths on our roads. This is just the ones reported to the police and emergency services, the government estimates that if every accident were accounted for, the figure would be more than three times that amount.
Many of those accidents will include innocent victims, injured in accidents that were not their fault. They will be entitled to claim compensation from whoever was responsible, and should contact Accident Advice Helpline to discuss their quest for compensation.
Claiming for a slip, trip or fall accident
Slips, trips, and falls are the most common of all accidents and happen to a large number of people every day. Many of them will cause no more than a few cuts and bruises and a bit of embarrassment, but some can have dire consequences for victims, through no fault of their own.
The slip could be on a newly washed floor, with no warning signs it is wet, that just happens to be at the top of a flight of steps, or someone could fall from height, perhaps off scaffolding on a building site. They are many ways innocent victims are seriously injured in these types of accidents, and they should be speaking to Accident Advice Helpline about claiming compensation.
Claiming for work related accidents
Employers have a legal duty to protect the health and safety of their employees while they are at work, and most employers take this very seriously. But there are some who are neglectful of their responsibilities, and that can lead to employees being injured in work related accidents.
Faulty machinery, trailing wires, a lack of protective clothing, or no training given, are just a few examples of how accidents at work are cause and the innocent victims of these accidents should contact Accident Advice Helpline to make a personal injury claim against their employer.
