Four Questions your Accident Solicitor in Clackmannanshire will ask you
Before we are able to handle your case at Accident Advice Helpline your dedicated Accident Solicitor in Clackmannanshire will need to ask you some questions. None of these are going to be difficult for you to answer, but they are vitally important for the success of your case. Not only that, but some of them need to be answered for us to know right from the beginning if you even have the right to make a claim.
So that you are not caught by surprise, and so that you can check any facts that you may need to before calling us, we have outlined these questions below for you.
1. Have you had an accident?
This may seem like a silly question to ask when someone makes a claim for compensation, but it is important that we do not make any assumptions. In order for you to make a claim with our accident solicitor in Clackmannanshire, we will need to know that you have actually been injured as a result of an accident, and not some other incident instead.
2. Have you had an injury?
We will also need to know whether you have been injured as a result of your accident. Again, this may seem like a silly thing to ask but in order to claim compensation an injury needs to have occurred.
Not only this but it is important that such an injury is serious enough that you should be regarded as being eligible for compensation for it. There is no point in making a claim for a minor bruise on your knee. Your accident solicitor in Clackmannanshire will ask what sort of injuries you occurred and whether or not your sought medical attention for them. If you did not, then there is a chance that your injuries will not be regarded as being serous enough for compensation, and your claim will not be progressed.
3. Were you responsible?
In order to make a claim for compensation it is important that someone else was responsible, or liable, for your accident. You will not be able to make a claim if you were to blame, as you cannot sue yourself.
It does not matter if you do not know who is legally liable as your accident solicitor in Clackmannanshire will assist you with this.
4. Did your accident occur recently?
Your accident does not need to have happened in the last week, but it must (generally speaking) have occurred in the last three years).
