Have you experienced an accident that was not your fault? Perhaps you tripped at work or have been involved in a road traffic accident and now wish to seek compensation or claim back your expenses and lost wages? Here at BWL, we can help you.
Regardless of whether it is from road traffic accidents, accidents at work, accidents at home or accidents in public places, in the UK, the most common reason that compensation is claimed is personal injury.
In 2017, the Department for Transport reported a total of 170,993 casualties as a result of road traffic accidents. Regardless of whether you were a pedestrian, passenger, cyclist or driver, if you have been left injured you may be able to claim compensation.
The Health and Safety Executive reports that in 2018, 555,000 person injuries occurred at work. These accidents commonly included falling from a height, being struck by a moving object, being trapped by something that had collapsed or coming into contact with moving machinery. Typically avoided with the correct health and safety training and procedures in place, employers have a duty of care to ensure that their employees are safe. However, accidents commonly occur. If you have been injured at work, you may have the right to claim compensation for any injury or financial loss that often comes as a result of being unable to work during recovery.
In addition to road traffic accidents and accidents at work, accidents in public places and at home can also see victims able to claim compensation for injuries sustained. While there is not as much awareness generated, if you have had an accident in a public place or at home, you may be able to claim compensation. In public places, accidents often include slipping on a spillage on a floor to tripping and falling on uneven pathways. From uneven flooring, damaged walls, exposed electrics or even mould inhalation, if you rent your home, your landlord is responsible for ensuring that your home is free from defects.
