Making a claim for compensation following a personal injury is a fairly straight forward process. All you have to do is find out who is responsible and start issuing claim proceedings against them. The harder element of the process if trying to work out who might actually be liable, and this is why it is always best to seek accident legal advice in Plymouth early on.
It may came as a surprise to learn that the person who was involved with your accident, and who may be responsible in terms of the accident occurring, might not be the person with ultimate liability. It is this kind of thing that the solicitors at Accident Advice Helpline are on hand to help with if you need it.
Why you should get accident legal advice in Plymouth
The last thing you want to do is make a claim against someone only to find out that they are not technically liable. This can be a huge waste of time, and if you are representing yourself can leave you open to having to pay for the other side’s legal expenses. Not only will this mean that you don’t get the compensation you believe you could be entitled to, but it could also leave you severely out of pocket too.
When you speak to the team at Accident Advice Helpline they will make sure that they have all of the facts regarding your accident. They can then use this to make sure that the right information and evidence is presented to the right person when a claim is made. This will then give you the best chance of getting the outcome that you deserve.
If we take an accident at work as an example. You could find that you have been injured because another member of staff did not follow procedure correctly. In that instance you would believe that the colleague was at fault, as they actually caused the accident. However, investigations may show that this individual did not follow correct procedure because they were new and had not been told what the procedure was.
If they had not been fully trained then they could not have been expected to act any differently. Your employer, in this situation, would therefore be held accountable and a claim should be made against them.
