With so many drivers on the road, it is perhaps inevitable that sooner or later there will be accidents. Often these are nothing more than basic accidents, which can happen to anyone, but in some instances you may be entitled to make a claim, in which case it will be time to start looking for some of the best injury solicitors in Thornton who can help with your case.
Understanding your rights
If you look at our case studies page, you’ll find there are lots of examples of people who waited some time before even realising that the option for making a claim exists. It’s interesting to think how many people might have missed out on the ability to make a claim when all they needed to do was take a quick look at the facts.
Like any other type of injury claim, road traffic accidents must conform to the following basic principles: the accident must have not been your fault, it must have happened within the last three years and you must have required medical attention.
If the other side is to blame, then they should be covered by third party car insurance which insures against any damage inflicted on other road users. It is this insurance company against whom you will be making your claim.
Launching your claim
As well as this, there are a number of specific considerations you should bear in mind when dealing with road traffic accidents. The first of these is to build your case. When accidents happen swiftly, you can never be that certain who is at fault. You may be convinced that you have a great case, but the other driver may equally believe that it’s your fault.
To help yourself out, you should get the contact details of witnesses, any details of medical attention received at the scene and any photos of the incident site. This will all help to give weight to your version of events.
