Brookwood is a village in Surrey, which probably doesn’t have a firm of solicitors in Brookwood in it. If it has, there might not be a personal injury solicitor who could help you file a personal injury compensation claim if you have been injured in an accident. If you need a specialist personal injury solicitor to help you prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of the freephone numbers which are below.
Why would I need solicitors in Brookwood?
Apart from if you have been injured in an accident that you can prove, with the help of solicitors in Brookwood, was not your fault, you might need help to file a claim for an illness. Did you know that you can file a claim for an illness that you can prove was the result of another person’s negligence? Solicitors in Brookwood or elsewhere could help you build a case to prove someone else’s negligence caused your illness.
You have three years in which to file a claim for an illness and generally you also have three years to file a claim for injuries you suffered in an accident which happened in the UK. However, as there are some accidents and injuries which you have much less time to claim for, you should check with a firm of solicitors near you, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you have to file your claim.
Accidents at work
If you have been injured in an accident at work, you should make sure that you report it to the appropriate person whose duty it is to record accidents in the accident book. That person, or your employer, should then report the accident to the Health and Safety Executive. If you think this won’t be done, you can report the accident directly to them. The names and contact details of any witnesses should also be included in the report.
However minor you think your injury is at the time, especially if it is a head injury, you should have immediate medical attention, as some seemingly minor injuries can actually be much worse than you think.
You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim for your injuries and loss of earnings if you can prove, with the help of an expert personal injuries solicitor, that the accident was not your fault.
