Where there’s blame, there’s a claim – catchy words, but they hide the underlying complexity of any personal injury claim. This guide will tell you all you need to know about finding injury solicitors after an unexpected accident in Threshfield and how you can give yourself the best chance possible of winning your case.
A changeable landscape – get justice after an unexpected accident in Threshfield
The first mistake many people make is to think of personal injury law in one sweeping, general way. In truth it is much more segmented with different types of injuries being treated in a slightly different ways.
General rules apply: the accident must not have been your fault, it must have happened within the last three years and it must have caused enough of an injury to require medical treatment. Within that, though, different injuries bring with them different challenges. Here are some of the most common that we find at the Accident Advice Helpline.
Unsurprisingly these are some of the most common types of cases that we work with. There are hundreds of traffic accidents happening around the country each day and in many of them there is blame attached to one party or another.
That’s why we all carry third party car insurance – to protect us against any injuries that we may inflict on other road users. Often this is just in the form of damage to the other vehicle, but if the accident is bad enough there may be injuries to contend with.
These can vary from common issues such as whiplash to more serious repercussions such as broken bones, which can cause people to spend time off work, and require extensive medical treatment. When this happens, the injured party will need help to get back on their feet.
By law your employer is responsible for your safety while you are on the premises. If you are hurt while at work, then you may be entitled to make a claim if they fell down on their responsibility to provide a safe place to work in.
This could be basic health and safety contraventions or not making reasonable adjustments which could prevent ongoing issues such as industrial deafness.
Slips, trips and falls in the street
If you’re hurt in public then responsibility will probably fall onto the local council. If they have failed to maintain the area in such a way that it becomes dangerous then they will be liable to compensate you for any injuries you suffer as a result.
