The sorts of injuries that are possible are broken limbs, facial and mouth lacerations, brain injuries, spinal injuries, burns and injuries to the internal organs. Many can be life altering with the chance of full recovery not likely even in the long term. Plastic surgery may be required, prosthetic limbs may need preparing and your house may need to be adapted. All these affects may result in severe hardship and all because you were involved in an accident that was not your fault.
In the majority of accidents, someone else is at fault and not the victim. That means that person may be entitled to personal injury compensation from the person who caused the accident.
If you have been injured in an accident and it was not your fault you should contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible after the accident while the events are fresh in your mind. Fortunately, solicitors who handle this area of law are sympathetic towards your case and will do their utmost to see that you get the best compensation to cover for the financial hardship you have encountered because of your injury.
A free consultation is usually offered and many personal injury solicitors do not ask for legal fees upfront as they offer a no win no fee service, meaning that you only pay the legal costs if your case is won. Personal injury solicitors do not waste time and will advise you as soon as they have assessed your circumstances if you are likely to win any compensation.
A personal injury solicitor knows that you are likely to be still suffering from the effects of your injury so many will work closely with you from the start of your claim right through to settlement. In most cases an out of court settlement will be reached that matches the severity of your injury. If however the insurer of the defendant won’t agree to the amount most solicitors will take the case to court and fight to ensure the requested amount is paid.
If you, or a member of your family, have been involved in an accident and you know you were not to blame you should not wait too long before contacting a personal injury solicitor to ensure you get fully compensated for an injury and subsequent financial hardship that was not your fault.Call: (0158) 229 7411
