Throughout the UK, every year there are an estimated 3 million accident that happen. The majority of these accidents will have innocent victims who, through no fault of their own, were injured as a result. If this happens to you, then you should seek out compensation from the people responsible by using the solicitors in Hetton at Accident Advice Helpline to assist you in making a personal injury compensation claim.
Compensation is usually in the form of money, awarded to help victims cope with what they had to suffer and the extra expenses they will incur after having an accident that was not their fault.
The many different types of accidents
If you have been involved in an accident through no fault of your own in the last three years and suffered injuries as a result, then you should claim compensation using our solicitors in Hetton to help you. There are no rules about the types of accident — they are all covered — but some of the more common ones are:
- Slips, trips or falls;
- Food poisoning;
- Accidents at work;
- Holiday accidents;
- Road traffic accidents;
- Industrial illnesses or diseases;
- Defective product accidents;
- Medical negligence; and
- Dental accidents.
In this list are just a sample of the accidents that can occur — there are many more. If you are injured in one of them, you may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
What you can claim for
You can claim for other things in your compensation claim — not just your pain and suffering — including:
- Travel expenses;
- Medical expenses;
- Loss of earnings;
- Care costs;
- Funeral costs in the case of a fatality;
- Home adaption or home moving costs;
- Replacement of equipment and accessories; and
- Any other costs or losses that are a direct result of the accident.
Every area of your injuries and how they have affected your life will be investigated to make sure that everything that should be claimed for is claimed for.
