Finding an accident solicitor is easy. The internet is full of companies toting their wares, and TV advertisements tell us on a daily basis to act now and make a claim. If you are looking for an accident solicitor in Keyworth there may not be many local options, but you will still be able to find a company that will handle your claim by using one of the nationally based organisations.
Accident solicitor in Keyworth vs national organisation
All any accident solicitor can do is work on the facts that they have to make a case. What they will then do is calculate the figure you could potentially receive in compensation from a third party and try to claim that figure for you. That is one of the main factors to any personal injury claim — that a third party was involved.
What is the third party?
Your accident must have been caused by someone else’s neglect or interference in order for you to make a successful claim. This could have occurred directly or indirectly. In cases such as a motoring accident, the interference was direct; if you slipped and fell over a faulty fitting, it is indirect. As long as you have proof that the accident was caused by someone else, then either an accident solicitor in Keyworth or a national company will be able to take your case on. There are also two other things they will need to know.
Two other things
They also have to know that the accident occurred in the last three years and that you suffered a proven personal injury as a result. This can be proven via the use of medical reports and treatments; witnesses may be required to prove that the accident happened, and although you can make a claim without a witness it is very hard for even the best lawyer to win a case without evidence. You should also provide details of the costs that your accident incurred in the form of lost earnings, medical bills, vehicle repairs — in short, anything that you had to pay for because of the accident and how it affected your life.
