If you’ve suffered an injury in a car crash in Adur that was not your fault, perhaps you should be thinking about claiming personal injury compensation.
Criteria for making an Adur road traffic accident claim
To make an Adur road traffic accident claim, or any other personal injury compensation claim, you must be able to prove that you were not responsible for the accident in which you sustained your injury. You also need to prove that someone else was responsible for the accident.
If you are injured in a road traffic accident which involved one or more motorised vehicles, the police must be informed of it. They will carry out an investigation into the causes of the accident and appeal for witnesses. When they conclude their investigation, they will write an accident report which you will need to support an Adur road traffic accident claim, or any other.
You must have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you possibly could after your accident, and your medical record will also be required if you decide to make an Adur road traffic accident claim (or any other). If you delay having treatment you could lose out on compensation, as some injuries are made worse if they are not treated immediately and you would only receive (perhaps) compensation for the initial injury.
