Accidents at Work and Road Traffic Claims
It can be difficult to return to normality after an accident at work or traffic accident. If you have experienced an accident at work, our solicitors have a wide range of experience in all types of accidents that can occur at the workplace. This ranges from fractures and soft tissue injuries to life-changing injuries such as spinal injuries, brain injury or amputations. To cover private medical treatments or rehabilitation we can also obtain early interim payments. Where a workplace accident leads to death, our solicitors can also represent you and your family at inquests and with dealing with the Coroner during the investigation and proceedings. When you are claiming for an accident at work, we will endeavour to help you prove that an individual or employer was to blame for your accident. You should ensure that an accident is recorded in the accident book as well as collecting a list of witnesses to use during your claim. You have 3 years from the date of the accident to pursue a claim and compensation will cover the costs of treatment, loss of earnings, damage to clothes and travel & care expenses. Similarly, you are able to claim for a road traffic accident and we will help you to prove that someone was to blame for your road traffic accident. Ensure that you obtain the full name and address of the driver as well as insurance details. Report the incident to police obtain addresses and names of witnesses, report the accident to insurers, keep receipts of expenses you incur and take photographs of the scene for evidence to use within your case.
Additional Injury Claims in Durham
Accidents occurred from slips, trips and falls may also mean that you are entitled to compensation. This includes accidents on private property or accidents in the street. Accidents in the street are likely to be against the local council whereas accidents on private property are usually against the occupier of the property. One should take photographs of the scene of the accident and put together a list of witnesses with their contact details as you will likely have to take statements later in the injury claim process. You also have 3 years from the injury to make a claim and this can be waived by Court in some circumstances. Exposure to asbestos causes a variety of lung cancers such as Mesothelioma, Asbestosis and damage to the lungs. If you are exposed to asbestos negligently by an employer then you may also be entitled to compensation. Our team of solicitors are available to help you make claims if you are suffering from Mesothelioma, Pleural Thickening, Asbestosis, Pleural Effusion or Lung Cancer due to exposure to asbestos.
