How to decide whether you should make an accident claim in Wychavon
Have you been involved in an accident that was not your fault? Perhaps you were injured whilst in the workplace? Maybe you have suffered at the hands of medical negligence? Perhaps you were involved in a road traffic accident?
Whatever your situation may be, you are probably thinking about making a personal injury claim. Of course you will want to get the money you are entitled to. However, if you do not have grounds for compensation the last thing you want to do is waste your time. Thus, keep on reading to discover whether you should make an accident claim in Wychavon.
Who caused the accident?
The first thing you need to do is determine who actually caused the accident. Someone else needs to be responsible if you are to make a claim. You need to be able to prove that their error or negligence has led to your suffering.
When did the incident occur?
You also need to think about the date of the incident. This is because there is a time limit on all personal injury cases. This time limit is three years. Please note that court proceedings must be issued within this period. If you have sustained an injury that has developed over time and you want to make an accident claim in Wychavon, such as repetitive strain injury or industrial deafness, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
Did you see a doctor?
Last but not least, you will not be able to make an accident claim in Wychavon if you have not seen a doctor. You must be professionally diagnosed with your injuries if you are to claim. The medical report is one of the most important pieces of evidence. It does not matter how minor you deem your injury to be, you need to see a doctor.
Hopefully you should now have a better understanding of whether you have the basis for a personal injury claim or not. If you are still feeling unsure the only thing you need to do is get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline and we will assist.
