Accident lawyers in Newham
Unfortunately, accidents happen on a daily basis. If you have been involved in an accident, you may be thinking about using the services of accident lawyers in Newham in order to make a compensation claim. Read on to discover everything you need to know about claiming, either with accident lawyers in Newham or with Accident Advice Helpline.
It is vital to recognise that there are so many different incidents that are classed as ‘personal injury’. The following is a mere handful of examples.
- Car crashes
- Repetitive strain injury
- Injuries from faulty products
- Food poisoning
- Motorbike accidents
- Vibration white finger
- Slips, trips and falls
- Construction accidents
- Industrial deafness
- … and much, much more
No matter how the incident occurred, you need to ask yourself the following three questions when determining whether you have the basis for a claim.
- Who caused the incident?
- When did the accident occur?
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
Establishing blame is the most important thing. You need to be able to prove that your injuries have occurred because of someone else’s wrongdoing. You certainly cannot be responsible for the accident yourself. If you are partially responsible you still may be entitled to some compensation, but the amount will be lower to reflect your involvement.
Aside from this, it is vital that the incident occurred within the last three years, as this is the time limit on nearly all personal injury cases. This period begins from the date of the accident, unless your injury has occurred over time, such as repetitive strain injury. If this is the case you will have three years from the date of diagnosis instead.
Last but not least, you must have seen a doctor for your injuries. This is important because the most crucial piece of evidence when making a claim is the medical report. This states your injuries and the recommended course of treatment, which is then used by your accident lawyers in Newham to determine how much compensation you are entitled to.
