If you have suffered a personal injury and you live in Harleston, Norfolk, you could have, only a moment ago, been investigating the possibility of finding an accident solicitor in Harleston in your telephone directory. You might have gone online to look up accident solicitor in Harleston, too. Perhaps you couldn’t find any, gave up and discovered this article which will tell you a little about what you need to know in order to make a personal injury compensation claim.
How long does it take to receive compensation for a personal injury?
You can claim for any personal injury that you sustained in an accident that was in no way your fault. Proving that someone other than you was to blame for the accident is not always easy, so a personal injury case may drag on for some time. Your solicitor has to prove negligence on someone else’s part so that you can win any compensation claim. That means that you could need to have the names and addresses of any witnesses to your accident, and you may need to have an expert opinion too.
There could be a police report, or documentation in the appropriate accident log book if you had an accident at your workplace. If you had a road accident, then hopefully you took photos of the scene of the crash and have them stored on your mobile phone. The more evidence and witness reports you can amass, the better your claim will be. You will also need access to your medical records so that you can prove that you sought medical treatment after the accident.
Some personal injury compensation cases can be settled out of court if you are prepared to accept a reasonable offer from the person or company responsible for your injury. If, however, you are not satisfied with the amount offered, or there is no offer, then the case will go to court, which will take more time.
