The range of personal injury claims in the UK is phenomenal as is the variety of people who need to start them. What unites this group of people is that they have all been hurt in accidents that were not their own fault. Sometimes, several people are hurt in the same accident, but only one person is to blame. For example, several people could be hurt in a motorway pile-up, but only one driver who fell asleep behind the wheel was to blame. Other accidents are more individual, and only one person is hurt. This type of accident often happens on the street and involves a slip trip or fall. You usually see people fall over by themselves rather than as part of a group.
The range of injuries is also very wide, here are a few examples.
Wrexham no-win, no-fee injury experts and head injuries
Wrexham no-win, no-fee injury experts at Accident Advice Helpline can help if you have suffered a head injury in an accident that was not your own fault. Head injuries are suffered in many road traffic accidents as the driver or passengers are thrown against the steering wheel or dashboard. In some very serious accidents, the occupants of the car can be thrown out onto the road surface and may even hit other obstacles such as trees, walls or other vehicles. Workplace accidents also often involve head injuries especially injuries sustained on construction sites – this is why hard hats should be worn. Head injuries can be only moderate – for example, a mild concussion. Recovery usually only takes a few days. Other head injuries can cause permanent damage to the brain and are life changing events.
Wrexham no-win, no-fee injury experts and limb injuries
Wrexham no-win, no-fee injury experts can help if you have broken your arm or leg in an accident that was not your own fault. Road traffic accidents can result in broken arms and legs as can workplace injuries. Slips, trips and falls in the street often result in a twisted or broken ankle or a broken wrist. As we fall we often put out our arms to save ourselves, and this puts a great strain on the wrist area as we hit the ground. Limb fractures can be simple or more complex. In the more simple fractures, the bones have snapped but have not moved out of position. Treatment is usually to encase the affected limb in plaster and allow it to heal. Recovery is usually only a few weeks. The situation is more complicated if the bones have moved out of position because then they have to be moved back before the healing process can start – this is a procedure called reduction.
