Nobody likes the thought of trying to find out how to claim compensation. However, this hypothetical case study might help you find your way.
For the purposes of this guide, we’re focusing on the case of Sarah who is looking for accident experts in Nayland.
Sarah was recently involved in a car accident in which another car smashed into the side of her. She badly damaged her leg and has since been unable to work. She is getting physiotherapy but there are treatments which could alleviate her suffering further and get her back to work sooner. The problem is: she can’t afford to pay.
Can she claim?
On the face of it, she can. Her injury took place within the last three years which is the legal limit imposed on any personal injury claim. She has suffered an injury which has had a severe affect on her life and is costing her money.
The only area of doubt comes in the question of blame. On the face of it, Sarah’s case seems pretty strong. She was hit by another driver who she believes should have stopped.
However, the chances are the other driver also has some very clear ideas of his own and he is convinced that he had the right of way. In other words, she should have stopped for him and she should be liable for the accident.
This means that were the court to find in the favour of the other driver Sarah would not only fail to recover the compensation to which she is entitled but could end up paying for the damage to the other car from her own insurance policy. Not nice at all.
So what does she do?
It is clear that this is a difficult claim and could be risky. So, she doesn’t want to pay a lot of money out on legal fees which could leave her struggling.
However, she doesn’t need to because she’s given Accident Advice Helpline a call. This is a friendly team of experts who will look into her case and advise her what to do. During the course of a short conversation, they’ll look at not only whether Sarah is to blame, but how easy it will be to demonstrate this to a court.
Key to this will be any witnesses at the scene or CCTV coverage as this could provide independent evidence about who was to blame. Assuming Sarah is confident about her case she will welcome any independent evidence that comes her way.
