It’s not something many people want to think about but injuries can and very often do happen. Depending on the scale of the injuries, an individual may have to pay for treatment and foot the cost of the convalescence – which may include recurring treatments and medications. The financial burden of an injury may be exacerbated by the victim being unable to work while they recover.
With all this in mind, an injury can be financially devasting for a victim. As such, if the injury was caused by the negligence of a third party, a victim is within their rights, to seek compensation.
We have teamed up with Bowler Geraghty & Co., to offer advice on how to go about seeking financial compensation following an accident.

Along with personal injuries advice and representation, their team of professional solicitors represent clients in probate law, employment law, and commercial law.
Never Settle Before Seeking Medical Advice
It’s impossible to tell the extent of an injury before a medical examination has taken place. As such, its impossible to tell how an injury will affect a person or how long it will take to heal.
Anyone who has been injured in an accident needs to be completely aware of the extent of their injuries before speaking about settling or compensation.
Be Aware of Time
After the accident, the victim has two years to pursue a personal injury claim, from the date of the accident or from the date it was established that the accident has directly led to the injuries.
The Injuries Board
Every personal injury claim must be processed through the injuries board. The injuries board is an independent board set up to independently access personal injuries claims.
Personal Injury Solicitors
A dedicated personal injury solicitor like Bowler Geraghty & Co. will guide clients through every stage of the personal injury claim process.
If you have been hurt due to the negligence of a third party you owe it to yourself to make sure you are financially protected during your recovery.
