Accident claims solicitors in Suffolk Coastal
If you’re looking for accident claims solicitors in Suffolk Coastal, the first thing you’ll need to think about is what type of accident you’ve suffered. Different cases require different approaches which is why you need to have the services of a specialist to give yourself the best chance of a successful outcome. In this article we’ll look more closely at some of the more common types of personal injury claims and how they are treated.
Road traffic accidents
Our roads are becoming busier every day so it should come as no surprise that road traffic accidents are the most common types of personal injury claims. In many cases these are relatively straightforward. It will be clear which driver was at fault for the accident – it will just be a question of deciding how much they should pay. We are all required to carry third party motor insurance with us to cover us for any damages we inflict on other road users. It will be this which you will be claiming against.
In those cases where there is uncertainty over the outcome, you’ll need as much evidence on your side as possible. Get the names and contact details of anyone who saw the accident. They witness statements could prove crucial when the time comes. You needn’t contact them yourself, but pass their details on to your lawyer.
Injuries in the workplace
Employers are required by law to take all reasonable precautions to ensure a safe environment for employees. If they fall short of this, there may be scope for a compensation claim. Many people worry that making a claim might affect their employment prospects. However, it is illegal for any workplace to take punitive action against an employee because they have made a claim against the company. If they do, there is a good chance you’ll have a further claim to make against them.
Slips, trips and falls in the street
These normally involve claims against the local council. They are tasked with keeping public areas safe for the people who use them. Occasionally they fall short in this, which is where compensation claims come. To protect them against these claims, they will take out public liability insurance which covers them for any accidents that happen as a result of their negligence.
