If you were injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you may be feeling frustrated and at a loss. Contact Accident Advice Helpline for friendly and helpful advice; we can take you through the steps involved in making a claim for compensation.
Accidents on the road in South Ribble
You may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have been injured in accidents on the road in South Ribble. However, you must be able to prove that you were not to blame for the accident in which you sustained your injuries. With the aid of a personal injury solicitor you will also need to prove that the accident was another person’s fault.
If you were injured in a road traffic accident and a motorised vehicle was involved, then the police must be called. They will conduct investigations into the accident and its causes and compile a police report which will specify who, in their opinion, was to blame. This can prove to be very useful when you are making a personal injury claim.
A medical report must also be made available if you file a personal injury compensation claim. This report will form the basis for the calculation of compensation for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries.
Making a compensation claim
Usually if you have been injured in an accident in the British Isles, you have three years to file your claim for injuries from the date of your accident, although there are some exceptions to this rule.
