Do you think you are eligible to make a personal injury compensation claim? If you need expert help and advice on compensation in Winchester before starting any claims for personal injury compensation, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. We can tell you if you actually have a valid claim to make and give you further information about the claims’ process and your specific claim.
Criteria for making an injury claim
To be eligible to make a claim it is necessary for you (with our help) to prove that you were not to blame for your accident. You also need to prove that another person was to blame for it.
After being injured in any type of accident, you should have sought and received medical treatment. Your medical records can prove that you did. They will also be used to assess just how much compensation you can be awarded for your injuries if your claim is successful.
If the police were at the accident scene, you will also need to produce a copy of their accident report. This should help to prove that another person and not you, was to blame for the accident. It should state the causes of the accident and the circumstances surrounding it.
If you have photographs of the scene of the accident and your injuries, these can be used as supporting evidence for your claim.
How much compensation could I get?
We cannot tell you accurately exactly how much compensation you could receive if your claim is successful because there are so many varying factors which have to be taken into account.
For successful claims you receive general and special damages. General ones are awarded for the pain, distress and suffering your injuries caused, both physical and mental if appropriate. If you can no longer do something that you used to do before your accident, you can be compensated for this loss of amenity.
Special damages are for past and future expenses which you have incurred because of your injury. These include loss of earnings, medical care and treatment, prescription charges and also, if you home has to be adapted to suit your new requirements, you can be awarded special damages to cover such costs.
