Who can make a claim for serious injuries in West Dorset?
Under UK law, you can make a compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence, and you were in no way at fault.
If you were involved in an accident at work through absolutely no fault of your own within the past three years, you could be eligible to make a claim.
For what sort of injuries can you seek compensation?
Injuries of all types come within the scope of personal injury claims, as long as they were sustained in an accident caused by someone else, and they needed medical attention. Not all injuries are that serious they change your life, but if you are unlucky enough to suffer from serious injuries in West Dorset, or anywhere else, the compensation you could be awarded can help wo make the whole situation a bit easier to cope with.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we can help you make a claim for either, and put together a strong case that ensures you are not just compensated for the injury itself, but any financial fall out it may have caused as well.
How much can you claim for an injury?
You can make a compensation claim for the physical damage the injury has caused, as well as the emotional anguish and distress. You can also seek remuneration for any income lost as a result of the accident, the costs of treatment, childcare, travel to and from appointments, ongoing in-home care and more.
