Should you use an accident solicitor in East Devon to make a compensation claim?
If you have landed on this post then you are undoubtedly wondering whether you or someone you love should make a compensation claim. Of course you want to make sure you get the money you are entitled to. However, if your case is weak then you certainly don’t want to waste your time and money using the services of an accident solicitor in East Devon. Keeping that in mind, in this post we will help you to determine whether you have the basis for a claim.
Who is to blame?
The first thing you need to determine is who caused the incident. In order to make a personal injury claim you need to be able to prove that you suffered your injures because of someone else’s error or negligence. The accident cannot be a result of your own wrongdoing.
When did the incident occur?
The accident must have happened within the past three years. This is the time limit on personal injury cases. The only exceptions are those whereby the injury has developed over time, such as industrial illness cases. In such instances you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
Did you see a doctor?
Last but not least, this is the final area of consideration. No matter how minor your injuries were, it is vital that you have seen a doctor. Their medical report is imperative when it comes to making a claim. Without it how are you going to prove that you suffered any injuries in the first place?
