Jersey is a beautiful part of the world, and makes the ideal spot for a short break or holiday. Its population is approximately 9,560, although this swells during the summer months when more people head there for a break. Few people would ever need a solicitor in St Brelade, since accidents on the island are not common. When they do happen, others are not often responsible for them.
But what if you were on the island and something happened? Suppose someone crashed into your car, or worse, knocked you down as you crossed the road? Things can and do go wrong occasionally, so it pays to know what you can do if you are involved in a situation where someone else does something to injure you. Even if they did not intend to do so, it can still leave you nursing some nasty injuries.
Getting your injuries treated
This is very important, because if you have any intention of making a claim to try and get some compensation, you must have proof of the injuries you sustained. Even if you only have minor injuries, a visit to your GP would be a good idea. Of course, if they are more serious, a casualty unit or minor injuries unit would be the best place to go.
In any event, getting treatment means there will be a permanent record of your visit and what happened when you got there. Your injuries will be evaluated and the appropriate treatment can be provided. This could mean receiving stitches, or getting a dislocated joint popped back into place, or a broken bone placed into a cast. More serious injuries might require a stay in hospital, or even surgery to correct them. But in every case, this evidence will help later when you decide to make a claim.

They would assess it the same way our solicitors will if you use our service at Accident Advice Helpline.
