Can I make a claim for accident compensation?
Your ability to make a traffic warden accident claim depends on the circumstances of your accident. To be represented by one of our expert personal injury solicitors, you need to be able to show that someone else caused your accident and it happened in the last three years.
Another road user may have injured you, or perhaps you were hit by a car or bus, a reckless cyclist or even a runner or pedestrian. Even if you were using equipment that was maintained by a private company or the local authority you work for, you could be able to claim compensation on the basis of having worked with faulty tools. If your employer was negligent or if you were not informed of the dangers of your equipment, you could have grounds for a claim.
The rules of making a claim
Other than having to show that someone else caused your traffic warden accident, it would help your claim if you obtain a copy of your medical record. Your injury could be physical or psychological, but as long as it had a clear negative effect on your life, a claim could be made.
In some instances, you may not realise the severity of your injury. In the case of psychological damage, for example, you may dismiss signs of mental trauma as temporary. If you are experiencing sleeplessness or depression, for example, you may assume it will pass. As a general rule, it is advisable to see your doctor after experiencing an accident. It will be possible for your doctor to assess if you need medical attention or psychological counselling.
The sooner you see your doctor after your accident, the better. This will not only help you on the road to recovery, but also help your doctor to update your medical record. This could prove important in your ability to make a successful accident claim.
