One of the most common causes of a personal injury claim that any injury solicitor will be asked to deal with is that of injuries resulting from a road traffic accident. If you have been injured in such an accident and are looking to make contact with injury solicitors then the first step will be to provide them with details about the accident and the extent of your injuries.
Current U.K legislation means that all accident injury claims must be made within the three years of the date of the event. You must have suffered a personal injury as a result and the most important thing is that the accident must have been someone else’s fault.
Blame or no blame?
Injury solicitors will need to know how the accident happened. It is important that all road traffic accidents are reported to the police and this will act as support in your case. Often accident victims make claims against each other as each was partly to blame and both suffered as a result. More commonly one person is to blame and this is the person against whom the case will be made.
It is important to inform your insurance company of the claim as there may be legal expenses coverage in your policy. Whatever your individual situation the best injury solicitors in Surrey will be able to help you build a case. They may even be able to offer you a guide as to the amount of compensation you will receive although this is only a guide and you should never take it as a guarantee.
