A Buckinghamshire road traffic accident claim could mean compensation for you
Do you live and work in Buckinghamshire? Have you had a road traffic accident and do you want to find out if you are eligible to make a Buckinghamshire road traffic accident claim?
Who was to blame for your accident?
You may be eligible to make a Buckinghamshire road traffic accident claim for your injuries if you can prove several things. First of all, you have to be able to prove that another person (not you) was responsible for your accident. You may need a personal injury lawyer to help you do this. If you do, call us at Accident Advice Helpline and we will put you in touch with a suitable one who works for clients on a no win, no fee basis.
What you should have done after the accident
After an accident between one or more motorised vehicles when someone is injured, the police should be called to the accident scene. They are responsible for investigating the causes of all such accidents. They appeal for witnesses and may close the road for a time while they carry out their investigations.
When the investigation is over, they will write an accident report and this is needed as supporting evidence if you decide to make a Buckinghamshire road traffic accident claim.
You should also have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could after the accident. Your medical report will prove that you did. This is also needed if you are to make a Buckinghamshire road traffic accident claim. Your medical report will be used to calculate the amount of compensation you could receive for the pain, distress and suffering caused by your injuries if your claim is successful. This is only one part of the total amount of compensation you might be entitled to.
How long do I have to file a claim?
You usually have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the UK to file an injury claim. However, it would be wise to check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out if this is so in the case of your particular accident and injury. Some accidents have shorter limitation periods for claiming for injuries.
