    Personal injury claims in Brighton and Hove

    If you’re looking for the best people for making personal injury claims in Brighton and Hove, it can seem impossible to know where to turn. But, by taking a step back and deciding what you want from this process it is possible to find the best person for the job. Here’s a glimpse at some of the ways you can go about improving your chances of success.

    Making personal injury claims in Brighton and Hove

    The first thing of course is to work out if you can or can’t claim. This is often a question that people forget to ask themselves. Often this is because we instinctively feel that our accident was not serious enough to warrant a claim, but the truth can be very different.

    The law states very simply that you should be entitled to claim compensation under the following circumstances:

    1. YouR accident happened within the last three years – this is the maximum amount of time you can allow to pass before you decide whether or not you want to make a claim.
    2. The injury had a negative affect on your life. A good guide is to see if you required medical attention; if not then it’s unlikely we can help.
    3. The accident was not your fault: this is the most well known and fundamental factor. Blame is crucial. You will have to demonstrate that the accident was not your fault in order to qualify for compensation. If you can’t do this then you won’t be able to claim.
