Being involved in a Staffordshire Moorlands accident may not be your fault, which could mean you are entitled to compensation. Compensation from a claim regarding an accident at work or on the road means that whatever costs you incur because of the accident can be reimbursed by the responsible party.
Road Traffic Accident
If your vehicle is run off of the road by another party sustaining damage to your vehicle and injuries on your part then this is more than enough basis to make a claim. Despite any injuries obtained if you are the sole party in the vehicle you need to make note of as many details as possible. Any details from the description of the other vehicle to any dangerous movements before the Staffordshire Moorlands accident happened. These details could win you the case. The responsible party of the accident will be liable to pay for the damage to your vehicle as well as any and all costs related to your physical injuries as well.
Accidents at work
If your Staffordshire Moorlands accident was a result of an incident at work this can also give a cause to claim. Your employers have legal responsibilities to look after every member of staff in their building. Whether you are a cleaner, filing clerk or a negotiator all roles of staff are equally as important in regards to health and safety. If an accident has occurred due to the negligence of your employer to maintain a safe workplace then you have the right to put in a claim against them. Likewise if a colleague has endangered you they can also be claimed against.
Staffordshire Moorlands accident in a public place
Having an accident in a public place can also potentially be a claim waiting to happen. A common example of an accident in a public space is tripping and falling over broken or dislodged paving slabs on a high street. In this case the party responsible for the maintenance of that footpath is the responsible party in the accident. Many occasions this will be council related and the claim will be escalated to them or their insurance company.
If you have had an accident that isn’t your fault you can make a claim to cover the costs you accrue as a result. If you need any advice or help in aid of making a claim or just need a point in the right direction give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500.
