One in four adults has suffered a recent personal injury or accident, but only 20 per cent have made a claim.
Following an accident, you may want and be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim through an personal injury claims solicitor.
As many as one in four adults have suffered from a personal injury or accident within the last five years, yet only 20 per cent of those have actually gone on to make a claim.
According to Personal Injury 2012 – a piece of research carried out by YouGov into the personal injury claims market – that’s leaving millions of pounds compensation un-claimed every year.
The report shows that road traffic accidents (RTAs) make up the majority of personal injury claims (50 per cent), while accidents in a public place ‘shop premises, public highways etc’ (excluding RTAs) account for 21 per cent and accidents in the workplace account for 16 per cent.
If you have been involved in an accident and it was your own fault, then there are no grounds to make a claim.
However, if you were involved in an accident which was someone else’s fault then you could make an accident claim for compensation with an personal injury claims solicitor. The money received can help cover any expenses which have resulted from your accident.
When you make a claim, it doesn’t necessarily need to be against another person, it could be a business or organisation such as a council or hospital.
You have a good case if the other party was in some way negligent, and that was a factor leading to your accident.
At Wrigley Claydon we work with people who have been involved in all kinds of accidents, but the most common are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, slips, trips and falls.
We will work with you to get you the compensation you deserve. Talk to one of our personal injury claims solicitor on 0161 624 6811.
