    How to decide if a claim will succeed


    The aftermath of suffering serious personal injuries, be they a result on an accident at work, incident on the road or simply a fall in the street, can be a confusing and worrying time.

    It is important, however, to try and keep a clear, decisive head, especially when it comes to making decisions regarding accident compensation claims.

    There are a number of important facets to take into account to ensure your claim doesn’t just fall by the wayside, wasting valuable time and effort. When it comes to claiming for accident compensation, these are the most important elements to consider.

    Time

    In order to have a chance of success, the vast majority of accidents claimed for need to have occurred in the last three years. There are exceptions, such as industrial diseases suffered later in life or the victim being a minor at the time of the accident, but this is a good general rule of thumb.

    Who’s to blame?

    In order for your injury compensation claim to be successful, you’ll need to show that the accident was the fault of someone else.

    Whether this is dangerous driving by another motorist in a car crash, malfunctioning machinery causing injuries at work or the local authority failing to maintain a street or pavement resulting in a public trip or fall. If you suffer because of the negligence of others, there is a claim to make.

    Evidence for your claim

    The more comprehensive your pack of evidence, the stronger your chance of a successful accident claim. In the cases of road traffic incidents, you ideally have the contact and insurance details of everyone involved as well as numerous, detailed witness statements.

    For accidents at work, risk assessments and safety reports from machinery and tools can be greatly beneficial. Photographs, and plenty of them, can also prove to be invaluable.

    A number of claims raise eyebrows where the injuries are concerned. It’s important not to be tempted to exaggerate the suffering and to obtain doctor’s notes to professionally showcase the extent of the injuries.
