If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, you are probably well aware of the fact that you can make a claim for compensation. However, you may be feeling a bit at a loss when it comes to starting the claim process and you might be looking for quality advice on hiring a solicitor in Barking and Dagenham. But, there is no need to panic. Read on to discover everything you need to know.
The first thing you need to do is determine whether you have the basis for a claim. To do this, you need to look at three key things. These are as follows:
- Who caused the accident?
- When did the incident occur?
- Did you see a doctor for your injuries?
Firstly, it is vital to show that someone else made an error or acted negligently and that this resulted in your injury. Secondly, the date of the accident is important because there is a three-year time limit on almost all personal injury cases. Thirdly, you must have seen a doctor because the medical report they provide you with is the most crucial piece of evidence when it comes to any type of claim.
