We all get up in the morning and head off to work or to carry out our daily activities expecting to return home at night in the same condition that we left the house! Sadly, this is not everyone’s experience and every day hundreds of people get hurt in accidents that were not their own fault. There is an organisation called Accident Advice Helpline who do their best to help these injured (and often distressed) people. They have teams of York ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors who could help you start a claim for compensation for your injuries and for the money that you have lost because you have been injured.
York ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors and your typical day
Sadly, your risk of an accident starts as soon as you leave your front gate. Some people will not even make it safely to their car. They may suffer a fall on a broken manhole cover and break their wrist. The York ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors may be able to help them start a claim for compensation against the organisation that should have kept the manhole cover safe.
Once inside your car and driving to work, there will be a number of people who suffer road traffic accidents and if these are caused by someone else then the York ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors may be able to help you start a claim. Another driver may case the accident because they were distracted or because they were driving recklessly. You may suffer whiplash or get low back pain after the accident.
Once you get to work, your employer has a duty to protect your health, safety and welfare but sadly this is not always the case. Hundreds of workers are injured every day in accidents that were not their own fault. Some suffer a simple slip, trip or fall. Some are injured by hazardous chemicals or machinery and others may suffer an electrocution. If it can be shown that you are injured because of something that your employer did or because of something that they did not do (and should have done) then you may be able to start a personal injury claim for compensation and the York ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors are the best people to talk to about this.
On your journey back home, you will face the same risk as during your journey back to work but what if you don’t go straight home? If you decide to go for a walk around the shops then you may face slip, trips and fall hazards again or you may buy a defective product that hurts you in some way.
In this dangerous world it is comforting to know that the York ‘no win, no fee*’ solicitors at accident Advice Helpline will be there when you need them!
