Every day many people are injured as a result of accidents that they did not cause. In such situations they could be entitled to seek compensation by way of a personal injury claim. Here at Accident Advice Helpline we specialise in making accident and injury claims in Spelthorne on behalf of our clients, and this is something that we can help you with, provided that you meet the qualifying criteria.
What is the criteria for making a claim?
Generally speaking there are three different things that need to apply, and you need to be able to prove to be able to make accident and injury claims in Spelthorne.
Firstly, you need to demonstrate that the accident you have been involved in caused you some form of injury. This does not have to be a major injury such as a broken leg, and it does not need to be physical. Emotional and psychological injuries- for example stress and anxiety- can also be claimed for. In order to prove that you have been injured in some way your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will need access to your medical records. These will demonstrate that you sought medical attention shortly after your accident, and will be all the proof that is needed.
Secondly, you will need to be able to show that the accident in question was not your fault. This is not your responsibility to do, but will fall under the job of your solicitor. They will gather from you all the necessary information to support your claim, and will then find further evidence to support it.
Finally, the accident you have been involved in should have occurred within the last three years. This is because this is the legal limit laid out for making personal injury claims. However, there are some situations in which this limit does not apply, so call us today to find out more.
