Do you feel comfortable talking to an accident solicitor in Braunton about your medical history?
Explaining very personal medical details of your injuries to a complete stranger can be very stressful, embarrassing and make you feel very uncomfortable. Recounting a traumatic event like a road traffic accident or serious accident at work will bring back painful memories just when you are trying to recover from your injuries and nightmares about the incident.
It is therefore essential you feel comfortable with your choice of accident solicitor in Braunton, when you make a personal injury claim.
To qualify for personal injuries claims:
- your accident and injuries must be the result of somebody else’s negligence
- your accident must have occurred in the last 3 years
If your injuries were the result of somebody else’s negligence and the other party accepts liability, your accident solicitor in Braunton will forward an offer-to-settle letter outlining how much compensation the defendant should pay. The defendant has 3 months before they need to respond to your solicitor’s initial letter that states the nature of your injuries and why you think the other party is to blame. The defendant may make a counter offer to say how much they are prepared to pay or they might accept your demand straightaway.
Each case is different and an accident solicitor in Braunton will only be able to estimate the time it will take to settle your claim and how much money you may be awarded, if you win.
If the defendant doesn’t accept liability, your accident solicitor in Braunton will ask you, if you wish to challenge the defendant at court. A judge will then decide if you should receive compensation and how much that will be.
