Questions accident lawyers in Nelson are asked
Do I need to report the incident? In some instances, you will need to report the incident to the police, especially if the incident impacts other traffic on the road. You will also need to do so if a criminal offense has occurred, i.e. if you have been involved in a hit and run.
Can I make a claim if I haven’t seen a doctor? It is highly unlikely. This is because the medical report is the most crucial piece of evidence when it comes to any personal injury claim. This report will detail the injuries you have sustained as well as the recommended course of treatment. This is when used to determine how much compensation you should get.
Will I have to go to court? While it is impossible to give a definitive answer, it is extremely unlikely that you will have to go to court. In fact, fewer than three per cent of personal injury claims result in a trial. It is our mission to ensure everything is wrapped up as quickly and smoothly as possible. In fact, a lot of our cases are handled entirely over the phone.
How long do I have to make a claim? You have three years from the date of the incident and court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. This means that if you were involved in a car crash on November 11th 2014 you would have until November 11th 2017 to make a claim.
I don’t have any money to make a claim, is there anything I can do? You should search for the services offered by no win no fee accident lawyers in Nelson. By doing this you will not need to make a substantial upfront payment to start the claim process and you will only pay legal fees if your case is a success.
