Eligibility for making a claim for injuries
In order to be eligible to make a Broxbourne road traffic accident claim, you must be able to prove two points:-
- You were not responsible for the accident in which you were injured; and
- Another person was to blame for your accident and injury.
You may need a personal injury lawyer to help you build a case to prove these things, in which case, contact us at Accident Advice Helpline. We will be able to put you in touch with one who works for clients on a no win, no fee basis.
When people are injured in a road traffic accident which involves one or more motorised vehicles, the police must be called. It is their duty to investigate the causes of an accident such as this. On completion of their investigations they will write an accident report which you will need if you decide to make a Broxbourne road traffic accident claim.
After an accident you should have received medical attention as soon as was practicable. Your medical report is necessary and will prove that you had treatment very shortly after the accident. The amount you receive in compensation for your injuries will be determined by this report. This figure will be a part of the total amount of compensation you may be awarded if your claim is successful.
How long do I have to claim?
You usually have three years to make a personal injury compensation claim from the date of an accident that happened in the UK. However, as there are exceptions to this general rule, find out how long you have left to make your claim by calling us at Accident Advice Helpline. After the limitation period is over, you can only make a claim if there were exceptional circumstances which prevented you from making the claim within the relevant time period.
