Accidents of all kinds, from slips, trips and falls to travel-related mishaps can all lead to myriad injuries of varying severity.
When you are involved in an accident that isn’t your fault, you can be left feeling aggravated and highly disgruntled, not to mention the physical and psychological pain you are caused to endure.
Depending on your individual circumstances, you may want to look into whether or not you have a claim or not.
Do I have a case or not?
First and foremost, it is important that the claim in question – be it a slip, trip, road traffic accident or travel complaint – is genuine. When you make a claim for personal injury compensation, if you are found to be making a false claim, you may incur court costs or even face sentencing.
That being said, if you are confident that you have a valid case to claim personal injury compensation, the legal system is there to support you in recovering the amount you are entitled to.
In most cases, such as accidents at work or slips, trips and falls, it is important that:
- you are able to prove that the accident was not your fault
- you can provide evidence to suggest third party liability
- the accident occurred within the last three years
Most claimants are not required to attend court, however, you may be required to see a health professional to assess the extent of your injuries. This is common practice and nothing to be concerned about.
