The significance of blame
When we talk about an accident not being your fault we need to be quite clear. The fact is that someone has to be to blame for the accident or incident that caused your injury, but that someone cannot be you, the injury victim. It must be a third party. So say for example the accident took place in your home, it will need to be as the result of a faulty or failed appliance, or some faulty work that was carried out in your home by a contractor; such as the incorrect fitting of a stair carpet which then caused you to fall downstairs and injure yourself.
Similarly if the accident happened at work, you must be able to point the finger at either one of your work colleagues, someone visiting your premises or your employer. It’s also the same with road traffic accidents. In order to be able to raise a claim for compensation, the accident must either be caused by another driver, a pedestrian or the integrity of the road surface.
All it boils down to is that someone other than yourself has to be to blame. There are another couple of points to remember too. These are that you will need to have been given medical treatment for your injury and the incident must have taken place sometime in the past three years.
Testing the validity of a claim for an accident in Johnstone
You can test out the validity of your accident in Johnstone in terms of claiming compensation by taking the 30-second test here on our website. If you look on any of the web-pages you’ll see our HOW MUCH compensation calculator. It asks four simple questions relating to the injury you sustained. Answer these by selecting the most appropriate responses from the drop-down boxes we provide. After doing that and providing us with a note of your name and a contact telephone number, you will then be given an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded if your claim does indeed appear to be valid in principle.Open Claim Calculator
