Every single day accidents happen all over the country, in fact over 3 million happen every year in the UK. It does not matter where you live or what you are doing an accident could happen at any time.
If you have been hurt in an accident through no fault of your own, you could be entitled to compensation and you may want to speak to the solicitors in Heacham about making a personal injury compensation claim.
Will the solicitors in Heacham tell me more about compensation?
You should call Accident Advice Helpline on their freephone number, 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile phone, and talk to one of their friendly advisers, but to give you some examples, you should be getting compensation if:
- You have suffered severe food poisoning
- You have been involved in a road traffic accident
- You have been thrown from your cycle or motorbike by a pothole
- You have had an accident at work
- Your child has had an accident while at school or college
- You have had a slip, trip or fall accident
There are numerous ways that an accident can happen, and as long as it was the fault of someone else and you needed medical attention, you should be entitled to compensation.
At Accident Advice Helpline, we have dealt with all types of injuries from all types of accidents, and have the expertise and knowledge to make sure you are getting the compensation you deserve.
How much compensation could I get?
The amount of compensation you are awarded depends on many things, not just the pain and suffering of the injury. An accident will cause you stress and anxiety, as well as unexpected costs, such as:
- Extra medical expenses
- Travel costs
- Care costs
- Home help
These are just a few examples, any cost incurred because of the accident can be recouped as part of you reclaim, but you will need to keep receipts for the payments you have made.
As well as the extra costs, your income could drop if you are employed. Loss of earnings can also be reclaimed, but just like with the costs, you will need proof of the reduction in your income. This could be in the form of wage slips or confirmation from your employer. If you work for yourself, a letter from your accountancy should suffice.
