As our experience shows at Accident Advice Helpline, there are all sorts of different accidents that can qualify for compensation. That’s why whether your looking for solicitors in Towcester or anywhere else, and no matter what type of claim you’re looking to bring, it’s so important that you have the right person for the job.
There are all sorts of odd and peculiar accidents that can happen – take the example of a woman from Donegal in Ireland who was hit by a car from above while walking past a local car park. A singer in Newcastle was shot by a cannon during a performance. It’s unclear whether this was some extremely blunt criticism of her show, but her arm injuries sparked a predictable claim for compensation.
Of course, in the USA, there are some even more wild claims such as the example of an inmate in Utah State prison who sued the authorities for not allowing him to practice his religion. In his case his religion was vampirism which required him to consume a strict diet of blood from his Vampress during conjugal visits.
Assessing your chances
So, as you can see, there is no limit to the type of accident that can count towards a personal injury claim, but what is important is whether the accident was your fault and if the injuries were bad enough to require medical attention. While some of the stories we hear in the USA in which people have been awarded sizeable sums for apparently minor injuries, might make you think it’s as easy as anything, the rules are actually very strict – here in the UK at least.
You will only be able to make a claim if you can prove to the court that you have been seriously injured as a result of the accident and that you can prove the defendant was at fault. Because you’re the one bringing the case, the onus will be on you to provide proof, not the other way around, so in order to be successful you need to have a genuine claim which you can back up with facts.
Finding solicitors in Towcester
Because there are so many different types of accidents that can qualify for compensation it’s important to have the right solicitors in Towcester in place to take charge of your case. You wouldn’t get a dentist to help with brain surgery would you? So you don’t want to have someone who specialises in workplace injuries helping you to make a claim related to a road traffic incident. It’s all about finding the right people for the right job at the right time.
