The town of Henley-on-Thames in Oxfordshire lies 10 miles to the north-east of Reading, and is renowned for its rowing. Every summer since 1851, the Henley Royal Regatta has taken place here. In 2011, the town had a population of 11,619, and the University of Reading’s Henley Business School is located in the town. If you’re a cash-strapped student who has been injured in an accident, finding a no win, no fee in Henley solicitor might prove difficult. But Accident Advice Helpline believes anybody should be able to afford to make a personal injury claim, which is why all our specialist solicitors work on a 100% no win, no fee basis.
How have you been injured in Henley?
Slips, trips and falls are amongst the most common types of accidents to happen, and many people don’t realise they’re eligible to make a no win, no fee in Henley claim if they’re injured. It all depends who is to blame for your accident – whilst you’re probably not going to be able to make a claim if you fell off your 5-inch heels on the way home from a night out, if you tripped on a broken paving stone, it could be a different matter. Tripping on a damaged pavement or even slipping on a wet floor could result in more serious injuries than you might expect, such as:
- Broken bones such as a broken ankle, wrist or hip
- Back injuries
- Shoulder or neck injuries
- Head injuries, if you hit your head as you fall
- Facial injuries such as lost teeth or a fractured cheekbone
- Strains and sprains
Even if you’ve sprained your ankle after tripping on a damaged kerb, you could find you’re eligible to make a personal injury claim with Accident Advice Helpline, for your pain, suffering and loss of earnings.
