    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Solicitor in Newgate Beccles

    We hear a lot about personal injury claims through advertisements on the TV and in the press – so much so that we might feel that making a claim is very straightforward. All you have to do is find a solicitor in Newgate Beccles with a decent understanding of claims procedure and you’re ready to go. Of course, it is not as simple as that, and the lawyer you finally do choose could have a significant bearing on whether you win and how much compensation you might be entitled to at the end of it all.

    Finding a solicitor in Newgate Beccles

    The first thing to do is to look at what’s available in your area. In an ideal world, you’ll want to find a solicitor in Newgate Beccles who has the right type of experience. That’s because different types of accidents are treated in a slightly different kind of way.

    That’s why on our website we’ve included specific details relating to three of the more common types of accident claims that we hear in our day to day work. These are:

    • Claims against an employer. These arise when there has been an injury in the workplace, and normally relate to whether the employer has fulfilled their legal requirement to provide an environment which is safe to work in. If they have not and there is an accident, a personal injury claim may well be considered appropriate.
    • Road traffic injuries. There are many accidents every day on the roads. Some of them are relatively minor and involve only sorting out a few bumps and scrapes, but some are more serious. When this happens, there is often considerable debate as to who caused the accident. That’s why it’s important to have a lawyer on your side who is well versed in accident claims and can offer all the information you need.
    • Slips, trips and falls in the street. These depend on which organisation owns the area. It is often the local council, in which case you will be bringing a claim against their insurance company. They are required by law to carry public liability insurance which covers them for any injury or damage caused to people while on their property.

    To give yourself the best possible chance of winning you need to be fairly certain of your case, and to improve your chances you should take photos of the scene as it was when you suffered you injury. This will enhance your chances of success considerably.

    Finding a solicitor in Newgate Beccles

    Finding a solicitor in Newgate Beccles means finding someone who has specific experience in that area of personal injury law. But even then, there is no way to be certain. That’s why our promise to offer no win no fee is so important. It means that if you do not win your case, you won’t have to pay – simple as that.
