The construction accident compensation experts on the personal injury team at Michael Lewin Solicitors can help you if you have been injured due to the fault of a third party either because of their negligence recklessness action or inaction.
If you have been injured whilst driving a vehicle for a construction company or whilst driving a vehicle on a construction site you could be eligible to make a personal injury claim if a third party caused the accident to take place. In order to successfully make a personal injury claim you need the following:
? To have sustained injuries in the accident that took at least six weeks to heal and that required medical attention.
? To be willing to attend a private medical examiner for an assessment of your injuries in order to accurately calculate the amount of compensation you will receive. We will try to arrange for the medical to be as close to your home as possible but if you do not attend the medical this could have a detrimental effect on your claim.
? Too have been involved in an accident within the last three years. Claims made over three years after the accident has taken place or the injury has been discovered are unlikely to be accepted and will not qualify for an award.
? To have been completely blameless for the incident taking place. If you caused the accident or if it was just an accident and there was no one to blame you will not be eligible for receiving a compensation award.
You could be entitled to construction accident compensation if you have been injured and the accident was not your fault; Michael Lewin Solicitors can give you a free evaluation of your eligibility to make a claim.
As the passenger in a vehicle you are usually entitled to make a claim for compensation providing you meet the criteria above because you cannot be held responsible for the safe operation of a vehicle; passenger injury claims are usually more straightforward as there is never any doubt that the liability for the incident is not that of the passenger. Even if you are the passenger in the vehicle that caused the accident you can still make a claim by starting a case against the driver of the vehicle you were in.
This is the situation that Mr C found himself in; Mr C was injured whilst he was travelling in the passenger seat of a third party’s vehicle. The driver of the vehicle in which Mr C was a passenger crashed into a stationary vehicle causing Mr C to sustain a personal injury. After appointing Michael Lewin Solicitors as his legal representatives Mr C was awarded a total of £1835.00 in personal injury compensation.
