The world of personal injury law can be complex and, for those new to it, highly intimidating. However, with the help of the Accident Advice Helpline, it need not be so challenging to find an injury solicitor in St Blazey Gate based who can help you with your case.
What you should know
There are several broad principles which govern whether or not you will have a case. The first is the question of timing. Under the rules you can only make a claim for an injury which happened within the last three years.
Blame and the injury itself are the other important factors. If you can demonstrate that another party was at fault for your injury then you will be in a good position to win your case. This is generally proved by evidence such as witnesses, photographs, medical and police reports.
The injury also needs to have had a tangible effect on your life. Compensation will most likely be judged on how much it has impeded you – such as forcing you to give up work – and any expenses you’ve had to lay out during the course of your treatment.
Within that broad spectrum there are many different requirements which you should take into account depending on the type of accident you’ve had.
For an accident in the workplace, for instance, you will have to illustrate that the incident took place because your employer fell down on their duty to safeguard anyone who works for them.
An accident in the street would often be more challenging to prove because of the instantaneous nature of the accident. How do you feel certain of where blame lies when any accident is over in a flash? Independent evidence from witnesses will form a very crucial and central plank of the process here.
Faced with so many different challenges it is a good idea to seek the advice of a team of experts in making your claim.
It so happens that we have a bunch of them at Accident Advice Helpline, sitting on the end of a phone waiting to take your call. During this conversation they will look in depth at your claim and offer an honest opinion firstly about whether you stand a good chance and secondly what you should do next.
