    "If you've been injured through no fault of your own you could be entitled to compensation. If you're unsure if you could claim, I recommend you call Accident Advice Helpline."

    Somerset compensation

    Somerset is a county of England in the south-western part of the country. Its northern border, plus part of the western border, faces both the Bristol Channel and the Severn Estuary. Much of the region is rural, although there are built-up areas here as you might expect. Additionally, some 910,000 people live in the county – few of whom ever have any need to explore the idea of claiming Somerset compensation.

    You might be curious to know who could claim compensation while living, working or even visiting the county. For the purposes of compensation claims, the individual making the claim must have proof they were injured in an incident another party was responsible for causing. This covers many potential occurrences, as you will see.

    Injuries can be caused in many ways

    Accidents are just that – they’re not intentional. However, this doesn’t mean they aren’t sometimes caused through negligence. For example, a driver may not look properly before turning out of a road, and in this case, they could turn into the path of another car. If you are in the other car, you may have no time to take evasive action.

    Similarly, if you work for someone else, you’d expect them to provide a safe workplace for you. Fortunately, this will normally be the case. However, in some rare circumstances, an employer may neglect their duties under the health and safety laws. If this happened, you might potentially receive injuries because of a lack of protective equipment or clothing, for instance.

    Knowing what to do next

    While the thought of claiming Somerset compensation might seem alien to you, it is worth thinking about it if you have been hurt within the last three years – no matter how that incident occurred. You may have a legal right to make a claim, and it shouldn’t put you in financial danger to do so.
