Blundellsands is close to Liverpool, and famous because of sculptor Anthony Gormley’s cast iron sculptures of men facing the sea on the stretch of beach between Blundesllsands and Waterloo. Anthony Gormley is perhaps more famous for his Angel of the North. If you were walking on the beach at Blundellsands, you may have stepped on a piece of broken glass that was obscured by sand. You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injury if you had to receive medical treatment for it, and you could be seeking solicitors in Blundellsands in your attempts to do this.
Looking for solicitors in Blundellsands?
In order to file any successful personal injury compensation claim, you need to first of all find a solicitor in a firm of solicitors in Blundellsands or elsewhere, who have the expertise you need in the area of law which covers your accident, injury or illness. For example, a beach is a public place, so you would need to find a solicitor who specialised in accidents in public places to represent you. One whose expertise lay in road traffic accidents would not have the expert knowledge of the law governing your type of accident.
What can I claim for?
If you have been injured in any type of accident and you can prove that the accident was not your fault (this is the most important point to bear in mind), then you may be entitled to file a claim to compensate you for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries. You can also claim for loss of earnings, medical expenses (if you have the receipts), care, both past and future, and loss of amenity. Loss of amenity is when you used to enjoy doing something, such as walking along the beach with your dogs, but you are unable to do this because of your injuries. (It is loss of quality of life.) If you suffered life-changing injuries, you may also be able to get compensation so that your home can be adapted to suit your new needs.
You should check with a firm of solicitors in Blundellsands or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you actually have in which to file your claim, as although you usually have three years to do this if the accident occurred within the UK, you sometimes have much less time in which to file your claim.
