Making a Mansfield accident claim does not need to be a stressful scenario. There are lots of people and services available to help give you the direction you need in order to start building your case to claim for compensation.
Whether your accident has been on the road, in a public place or at work you could potentially claim for compensation. But how do you know where to start?
Having evidence of your accident is vital back bone to a winning case for compensation. Simply stating you had an accident will not win, you need to prove it. Have photographs of the accident. Using a mobile phone is a handy concept as you can take the pictures there and then. Make sure there are images of any injuries you sustained, the cause of your accident and any other hazards local to you which could contribute to the accident. If there were any witnesses to the accident it will be helpful to have statements from these people.
When making a Mansfield accident claim it is best to start the process sooner rather than later. A standard time frame on reporting any accidents is generally 3 years, after this it can be very difficult to win a case. By starting a case for your compensation claim soon after the accident you will be able to construct a much more detailed account of what happened as well as many other helpful details such as who was present when it happened. Over time details like these will be forgotten so it is best to act quickly whilst the accident is fresh.
What If My Mansfield Accident Claim Was Partially My Fault?
A common query when putting forward a claim is the worry that it may have been your fault. Self doubt is a natural feeling to have when putting forward a claim. If the accident was partially your fault you can still make a claim, though the chances of winning a full amount of compensation may be significantly reduced. However there is still a chance you can walk away with some money from your Mansfield accident claim.
