What you need to prove to make an accident compensation claim in Lancashire
The most important point to prove is that you were in no way responsible for the accident in which you were injured. Then, by extension, you have to prove that another person was to blame for it. If the police were at the scene of your accident, their accident report should prove these things.
You also have to show that you did not delay seeking medical treatment for your injuries. This can be proved on production of your medical records which will show the time and date you had treatment. They will also describe your injuries and will be used to assess how much compensation you might be awarded for them.
If you have photographs of the scene of the accident and your injuries, these can be used as supporting evidence for your accident compensation claim in Lancashire.
How long do I have to make a claim?
If your accident occurred within this country, you would normally have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, this is not always true, as sometime you only have months to file a claim for injuries. Therefore, it would be wise to call us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to file your potential claim.
If the deadline for making your claim has passed, it would not be easy to file it. You would need to prove that there had been exceptional circumstances that had been preventing you from filing it within the limitation period. The sooner you find out how long you have to file your claim the better.
