In our capacity as personal injury lawyers, AAH often process claims on behalf of holidaymakers and tourists who’ve sustained an injury while on vacation. Sometimes these injuries occur when people are abroad, and sometimes they happen when they’re holidaying here in the UK, in tourist hotspots like Bradford-on-Avon. But the one thing that they all have in common is that the accidents/incidents that cause these injuries can be blamed on someone other than the injured party. It’s a fundamental prerequisite of any personal injury claim.
The Attractions of Bradford-on-Avon
Bradford-on-Avon is a delightful town in West Wiltshire. It traces its roots back to Roman times. The town has many beautiful historic buildings, and with its canal, many pubs, restaurants, and shops, it’s a real tourist magnet.
When AAH is called into action
The infrastructure that supports the tourist traffic is well established, and there are many excellent hotels and guest houses where holidaymakers can stay while they take in all the town, and the surrounding district, has to offer. It’s when tourists have an accident, perhaps because of a faulty product in one of the hotels, or have a fall and break a bone because someone left something lying on the stairs, or something similar, that AAH injury claim solicitors are called upon to help.
Public liability insurance
The one thing that you mustn’t do is to feel awkward about launching a personal injury claim. All establishments that cater for the public have to have public liability insurance, and it’s this insurance that kicks-in to cover any costs that are involved when a guest becomes injured through no fault of his/her own.
Valuing your no win no fee in Bradford-on-Avon claim
If you’ve sustained a serious injury that affects your ability to earn an income, this is one of the factors that can be taken into consideration when you launch a claim for compensation. You can start-out by going to AAH’s website and locating the HOW MUCH calculator that can be found on the homepage. This will give you an estimate of the potential value of your claim within 30 seconds. It is however only an estimate, and things such as loss of earnings and/or any medical costs you may incur will have to be added in when your allocated solicitor formats your no win no fee in Bradford-on-Avon claim.
3 Important Proofs
You’ll need three things in order to validate the authenticity of any personal injury claim you may make. These are:
- Proof that the incident was someone else’s fault
- Medical proof of the nature and severity of the injury
- Confirmation the incident/injury took place in the last three years
