Staffordshire is a county about midway up England, towards the western side of the country near Wales, although it doesn’t border Wales. It sits in the West Midlands and has a population numbering a little over a million people. It shouldn’t come as a surprise then to learn that Staffordshire personal injury claims do occur in small number each year. With a population that size, there is always a slim chance some things could potentially happen to cause people injury.
For example, it’s possible that some people will be involved in road accidents. These aren’t usually serious, but even the more minor ones can leave people with ‘classic’ injuries such as whiplash. Soft tissue bruising is also quite common when the seatbelt locks and the person is thrown against it.
How easy is it to claim compensation in a situation similar to this?
It could be much easier than you’d suppose. This is a legal process, of course, but you can get easy access to a personal injury lawyer who can consider the likelihood that a claim would be successful. They will look at the chances of getting plenty of evidence to support your claim, first of all, and if they think you have a good chance of winning, they may offer you no win, no fee terms.
Obviously, most people will want to get help for whatever injuries they ended up with first of all. Even though their injuries may not be that serious, photos can be taken of them as these might help to support any claim made later on. Additionally, seeing a GP or hospital doctor or nurse can also help provide a record of the injuries suffered.
