Spinal injury claims in Tameside are the same as personal injury claims anywhere else in the UK, and the same rules apply to them all:
- You must have been involved in an accident that was not your fault;
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident;
- The injuries must have needed medical attention; and
- The accident must have taken place no more than three years ago.
If you fit these rules, then spinal injury claims in Tameside will be an option for you to consider.
The types of accidents that cause spinal injury claims in Tameside
Most accidents are caused through someone being reckless or neglectful, without considering the consequences of their actions. Many accidents could be avoided if only people took more care.
All accidents come within the scope of spinal injury claims in Tameside, including:
- Road traffic accidents;
- Accidents at work;
- Slips, trips, and falls;
- Medical negligence;
- Food poisoning; and
- Industrial illnesses and diseases.
The consequences of accidents
Accidents can change the lives of victims forever, but it is not just their lives that can be affected — those close to them have to cope with the injuries that have been sustained, as well.
If the victim has a brain injury, for instance, or has maybe lost a limb, coping with such injuries can be stressful and very upsetting for everyone concerned. This is why compensation is awarded to the innocent victims of accidents — to help them adapt to their new circumstances, and to cover any extra costs involved.
In other cases the injury can be much more mild, and recovery may be completed in a relatively short period of time. Even for this time, lives can be turned upside down, and extra expenses incurred that had not been planned for.
However mild or serious, the severity of your injuries and the impact on your life should be accounted for when you make your personal injury compensation claim.
