If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. This is something that the team at Accident Advice Helpline can help you with. However, there are a few things that we need to know in order to be able to proceed with your claim.
Who was responsible for your bus accident in North Devon?
The first thing we will want to know is who was responsible for the accident that you have been involved in. Now, we know that you may not have this precise information, depending on the nature of your accident, but simply knowing that the accident was not your fault is enough to be going on with.
As we gather more details about your accident, where it occurred and what circumstances led to it occurring we will be able to determine where legal responsibility lies. We will then be able to pursue a claim against that person on your behalf.
How were you injured in your accident?
It is important to know how you were injured in the bus accident in North Devon, in order to be able to get compensation. After all such a claim is going to be centred around your personal injuries so it is vital that we are able to clearly identify the impact your accident has had on you.
The best way for us to do this is by looking at your medical records. Don’t worry, we can’t simply access them, but if you give us permission to do so we can contact your GP and obtain a copy. We will forward this to the other side to demonstrate that you sustained the injuries you said you did, at the time you said you did and that according to your medical records you were fine beforehand.
We will then arrange for you to be assessed by an independent medical expert who will be able to determine the precise impact that your injuries have had on you. Whether this be pain, reduced movement, time off work or difficulty sleeping. This will help us argue for your compensation amount to be increased if necessary.
