Darlingscott is a historic settlement in Warwickshire, not far from Stratford-on-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare. You might have driven nearby on your way through and spied the old church of St George, whose name refers to the mediaeval legend of the patron saint of England. However, you may have an accident solicitor in Darlingscott on your mind, since you have landed here, and if that’s the case, you could well be seeking personal injury compensation for yourself or a loved one for a non-fault injury.
Why you could need an accident solicitor in Darlingscott
Under English Law, if a person has been injured in an accident through no fault of their own, and it can be proven that the accident happened through someone else’s fault – actions or negligence, then they are entitled to claim compensation. There are conditions which apply:
- The accident must have been the fault of another
- The victim must have had medical treatment for their injuries
- The claim is submitted within 3 years of the incident
You can claim for compensation for the injury and for extra costs you have run up because of it. For example, if you are unable to drive you may be relying on taxis to take you for treatment, you may be paying for additional private treatment to aid your recovery. You may require help at home, domestic support. Friends and family might have had to give up work temporarily or otherwise to do shopping and cooking for you. If you are off work you may be able to claim for loss of income.
What do I need to prove my claim?
You should be able to produce your medical report, witness details (if available) and the report from the accident book or nominated safety officer at work, if that’s where the accident happened. Keep any receipts, bills and invoices that may be relevant as described above and calculate the statement for your loss of income.
