Are you using an accident solicitor in Sandwell to make a claim against a motorcyclist?
When a road traffic accident occurs, any number of people could be responsible. In order to obtain compensation for your injuries, you will need to determine who was legally responsible for the incident and an accident solicitor in Sandwell could help you to do this.
If numerous vehicles were involved in the accident, it may require thorough investigation to determine who caused the incident. Often, police officers will investigate the scene in order to find out how the accident occurred.
This type of investigation could make it easier for you to make a claim with an accident solicitor in Sandwell as it will help to identify who you need to make your claim against. As long as you can prove that they caused your injuries, you should be able to obtain compensation from them.
Whilst a significant number of road traffic accidents are caused by car or van drivers, motorcyclists may cause accidents too. If a motorcyclist is responsible for your injuries, you could still make a claim against them and you may be awarded a significant amount of compensation.
Don’t forget – it isn’t just drivers who can make a compensation claim when an accident has occurred. If passengers in your vehicle also sustained injuries, they could make compensation claims with an accident solicitor in Sandwell too.
When should you start your compensation claim?
If you would prefer to begin the recovery process before taking legal action it shouldn’t prevent you from obtaining compensation but it’s important not to leave it too long. Unfortunately, there are time limits on how long claimants have got to take legal action and, in most cases, claimants will be required to make a claim within three years of their injuries occurring.
