It’s an unfortunate reality that you are as likely to be hurt in an accident in the bustling West Yorkshire city of Wakefield, as you are anywhere else in the UK and injuries caused by those accidents can take many forms. You may be recuperating after your Wakefield accident injury and be thinking about making a claim for your injuries.
The area has hundreds of miles of roads, for example, and while minor accidents and fatalities have thankfully dropped in recent months and years, serious traffic collisions appear to be rising, with more than 150 of them occurring in 2012 alone.
Equally, while the employment rate locally is relatively strong, accidents can and do happen at work. There’s also the possibility of a slip, trip and fall accident in a public place, such as one of the city’s new retail centres that have sprung up as the area has been regenerated.
Don’t feel bad about making a claim
But if you have had a Wakefield accident injury, the good news is that you may be eligible to claim personal injury compensation to cover some of the extra expenses you will have had. While many people are put off claiming because of media reports of the “compensation culture” and claimants being “out for what they can get”, the reality could not be further from the truth.
Equally, some people worry about claiming if they’ve had an accident at work because they are concerned it may affect their relationship with their employer. But it is against the law to sack someone for claiming after an accident and claims are generally settled by employers’ insurers.
