Accidents Direct Organises Claim For Open Manhole Disaster
Friday, 21 June 2013
Ever had an accident as a result of circumstances that simply wasn’t your fault? Mrs Perkins did, and the experience left her struck by a horrific leg injury that resulted in four separate operations.
Taking her regular morning walk along Dersingham Avenue, she found herself falling into a manhole cover left unsecured by careless workmen. Taken unawares, Mrs Perkins landed cumbersomely and caused her leg to break in two entirely different places, resulting in a painful and unsightly 22cm scar (even after emergency surgery procedures). Distressingly, there was no one around to witness the incident and she was left stranded in the manhole for over an hour until the fire brigade arrived to lift her to safety.
Though her broken limb left her unable to carry out everyday activities and caused a great deal of pain and inconvenience, Mrs Perkins was able to seek professional advice from the UK’s leading personal injury specialists, who worked with unmatched compassion and commitment to ensure she received the compensation she deserved.
She was put straight in touch with a personal injury solicitor who quickly negotiated help for her under a no win no fee agreement (also known as a CFA) . The professional in charge of her claim also organised a full medical with a top private London doctor, who assessed her injuries and arranged for first-class treatment that would aid her recovery. Without the support and guidance of the no win no fee experts at the company, she could have had to cope with a barrage of expensive medical bills and would have been left struggling to live and work as her leg began to heal.
Mrs Perkins was wise enough to contact the council just days after the incident occurred, which, according to the claims executive who dealt with her initial call, is the best course of action following such a terrifying ordeal.
“We can arrange compensation for all kinds of accidents and receive requests from thousands of people in similar situations to Mrs Perkins,” he explains. “We’d highly recommend getting in touch with the organisation at fault straightaway before calling our team. This ensures that the entire claims process is much more efficient and you’re more likely to achieve a better outcome.”
He adds; “Trying to make a claim independently can turn into a nightmare. It’s best to let the experts handle your situation and negotiate a much better deal for you, regardless of the nature of your claim.”
