Accident Solicitor in Westleton
At Accident Advice Helpline, we understand that the thought of making a compensation claim for a road traffic accident in Westleton can be a daunting prospect. With this in mind, we have compiled a list of answers to some of the most frequently asked questions that our claims advisors hear while staffing our Freephone helpline.
I was injured in a road traffic accident – who can I claim compensation from?
If another driver was at fault, you will be able to file a compensation claim against that driver. Normally, your accident solicitor in Westleton will be able to negotiate a compensation settlement through the driver’s insurance company. However, if the driver had not taken out insurance, you may be able to receive compensation from the Motor Insurer’s Bureau.
I may have been partially to blame – can I still claim compensation?
If you have grounds for legal action, you can still claim road accident compensation, even if you were partially to blame for the accident. However, your compensation settlement will reflect your contribution to the accident and may therefore be lower than the amount you would usually expect to receive.
I am thinking of making a claim – what evidence will I need to supply to support my claim?
You will normally need to prove that the other driver acted negligently – for example, that they were driving carelessly in the lead-up to your accident. You will also need to prove that your injury was caused by their negligence. In practical terms, you should retain evidence relating to the circumstances surrounding your accident and the nature and severity of your injuries. You should also keep evidence of any associated expenses and losses, such as lost earnings, prescription charges, medical equipment costs and transportation fees.
