The period leading up to finding a lawyer who works for no win no fee* on Ravenscourt Park cases can be worrying. You may be getting conflicting advice from friends and family about how to claim for compensation just after you were injured in this area of London.
Some people get especially concerned about the sort of details that a lawyer working for no win no fee* on Ravenscourt Park cases will require. In truth, there is no need to be concerned about this at all, as many of the important details will have been stored in your medical notes and these will be kept at your doctor’s or the hospital where you were treated.
Here are some typical details that are passed onto Accident Advice Helpline after an accident resulting in an injury in the Ravenscourt Park area.
The accident details that Accident Advice Helpline will need in order to handle a personal injury claim may include:
- The exact location of the accident;
- How the accident was caused;
- Details of any vehicles involved;
- Details of any equipment involved;
- Weather conditions;
- Road conditions; and
- Traffic conditions.
Fractured ankle treatment
As part of a claim for a fractured ankle, for example, you would need to provide details of how the fracture was diagnosed and treated. Diagnosis was probably by an X-ray, as even hairline fractures usually show up.
If the fracture was not serious, the treatment was probably to immobilise the area with a plaster cast which will fix the ankle in place while the bones heal. As you may be on crutches at this time, you may not be able to drive, walk, perform household tasks and look after your children.
Severe fractures have to be re-aligned – this is called reduction and could be carried out while you are still awake. You will have medication to relax you as the bones are moved back into the correct position. However, if the fracture is very severe you will be given a general anaesthetic and the bones will be moved back into place after a cut has been made in the skin.
Making no win no fee* in Ravenscourt Park claims
For most people, the removal of the plaster is not actually the end of the treatment. Many people need help to get them back to the levels of movement that they had before the injury, and this process is termed rehabilitation. Rehabilitation is carried out by skilled medical professionals called physiotherapists, who will teach you a series of exercises for you to follow to gradually get all of the movement back.
