A slip in a public place in North Devon could lead to a number of injuries, some of which could leave you unable to work for a long period of time. While a common source of personal injury claims, there are many others that Accident Advice Helpline deal with every day. Below are some of the most common accidents associated with personal injury claims as well as information about claiming compensation for them.
Most common accidents leading to personal injury claims
Road traffic accidents
Road traffic accidents are the most common type of accident in the UK and can lead to very serious injuries. From concussion and whiplash to fractures and more, a road traffic accident could leave you unable to work for a long period of time – which may have an effect on your finances. If the car accident wasn’t your fault, you may be entitled to compensation from the responsible party.
Accidents at work
Workplace accidents can be avoided when an employer follows the right health and safety regulations and gives employees the right training in order to prevent them. If you are injured, your employer may have to pay sick pay – which may not necessarily cover the bills. If your accident at work was caused by your employer’s negligence then they may be liable to pay compensation as well.
Public transport accidents
Public transport accidents can occur at any time and if the accident could have been avoided on the part of the provider, then they may be liable to pay compensation for any injuries sustained in the accident.
