Burford is a small Cotswold town on the River Windrush, one of the most picturesque areas of England. It is not really the sort of area that you may associate with accidents but sadly they can be as common here as anywhere else.
If you have suffered an accident that was own fault here then sadly you will just have to put up with the consequences. However, if that accident was someone else’s fault then you can ask a personal injury solicitor in Burford to help you make a compensation claim.
The most straightforward way to find a personal injury solicitor in Burford is to contact Accident Advice Helpline. They have a team of lawyers who would be happy to take on your claim.
Using a very common but debilitating injury – a groin strain – here are the fine details about how a personal injury solicitor in Burford works.
Personal injury solicitor in Burford, groin injury symptoms and causes
Most groin injuries are caused by this area being stretched beyond its normal limits. This commonly happens playing sport (such as football and rugby) but can be suffered in the workplace as well. The adductor muscles can be damaged by a sudden change of direction, such as a slip. Mild strain symptoms may not appear for 24 – 48 hours after the accident but severe strains are usually painful straight away. There may even be swelling and bruising and it is painful to sit, stand, walk or perform other everyday tasks.
It is possible for a sporting groin strain to be someone else’s fault, normally this would be when a person was using some faulty equipment or had inadequate training or supervision.
Workplace groin strains can be caused by an employer. They have a duty of care to protect the health and safety of their employees.
If you are of the opinion that your groin injury was someone else’s fault you can talk to Accident Advice Helpline about claiming expenses for your injuries.
Personal injury solicitor in Burford, groin injury treatment
As part of your claim you will need to give some details about your treatment so visit a health care professional (your local doctor or a hospital) as soon as you can. They will give you some good advice on how best to manage your injury yourself.
It has been shown that applying ice to the affected area for around 15 minutes, several times a day, really helps with the pain and swelling. Anti-inflammatory tablets and painkillers may also help but check that it is safe for you to take them. There are some gentle stretching exercises that can speed up a groin strain recovery and a physiotherapist can provide further help with these.
