How to launch personal injury claims in Lincoln
Although broadly speaking anyone can make a claim for personal injury compensation. There are certain criteria that need to be met. It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with these criteria before you get in touch with us, as it will save you time and give you a good overview of the claims process.
Someone must have been negligent
You can only raise a compensation claim if there is someone to raise a claim against. This should be the person who is responsible for the accident. They must have been negligent in some way and you must have some evidence to prove this.
Something must have been defective
Alternatively, you must be able to prove that a product was defective and it was that which caused your injury. This is usually the main criteria in pursuing a faulty product compensation claim.
In order to start a compensation claim, you must be able to prove that you actually sustained injuries. This means that you will need to have visited a doctor and had your injuries officially recorded, after your accident if you are to make a claim.
Sadly, you must also ensure that your claim is being filed no more than three years from the day of your accident as there is a three year time limit on making the vast majority of personal injury claims.
Filing the claim
If you are confident that you meet the criteria we have set out above, then congratulations it is likely that you have a pretty solid case for compensation, although there can never be any guarantees.
