Have you suffered an injury?
With numerous towns and villages, South Bucks is a popular place to ive and work. Since the area is quite heavily populated, it is almost inevitable that accidents will crop up from time to time. However, a South Bucks accident claim doesn’t necessarily have to be derived from a serious accident. Other more minor incidents could also lead to injuries.
These might occur at work, in a shop, out and about and in all manner of public places. Additionally, a simple slip or trip can happen almost anywhere, and even this innocent-sounding accident can potentially cause some painful injuries to occur.
How could a slip or trip lead to nasty injuries?
It depends on what occurs. For example, sometimes you can slip and catch yourself before you have a chance to fall. At other times, you may not be able to do this. If this is the case, you could end up falling and hurting yourself. You might sprain a joint, break a bone or sustain a nasty cut if you fall on something sharp.
Tripping over is something we’ve all done from time to time. The crucial thing to think about is whether that trip happened because of a situation that was entirely preventable. For instance, if a paving stone was uneven and presented a trip hazard, it could have been prevented. This might trigger the chance to make a South Bucks accident claim.
Could you make a South Bucks accident claim?
If you’ve been hurt, it’s possible that you could be able to take legal action. However, in order to be able to make a South Bucks accident claim, your injuries will need to be attributable to someone else.
If you’ve suffered an injury that wasn’t caused by someone else and you received medical treatment after the incident, you should be able to make a claim.
However, most claimants are subject to time limits when it comes to making a personal injury claim. Generally, you’ll need to make your claim within 3 years’ of the accident in order to qualify for compensation.
