Here to help move your compensation claim ahead
At Accident Advice Helpline we deal with thousands of people looking to make a claim. And of the many things we see, one of the most common mistakes people make is to assume that their car accident case is going to be much easier than it turns out to be.
For this reason it’s vital to make sure that if you come from Calderdale the Calderdale vehicle accident you claim for receives the care and attention it requires.
Claiming for a Calderdale vehicle accident
When you suffer a Calderdale road accident many people make the mistake of assuming that making a claim is going to be straightforward. If you’ve been in a Calderdale car accident, you can make a claim if you were hurt within the last three years, the accident was not your fault and if your claim was serious enough to require medical attention. All you have to do is prove all that and you’re ready to go right?
As a result some people make the mistake of being a little off hand in how they approach making a claim. They simply choose the first lawyer they can find and leave it at that. Some people don’t even do that, but pursue the case through their insurance company.
That’s a major mistake as it almost certainly means you’ll reduce your chances of winning outright and even if you do win you may not receive the full amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.
We’ve been going since 2000 and if we’ve learned anything in that time it’s that more often than not making a claim is a little more complicated than people imagine. There’s almost always some complications in even the simplest case.
Remember – the onus is on you to prove your case rather than the other way around, so this adds a layer of difficulty in making a claim. If you live in Calderdale your Calderdale vehicle accident must be proven not to have been your fault, and the injuries must be shown to have had a negative effect on your quality of life. In order to be successful in proving your case, you need to have the evidence on your side and that is always easier said than done.
It’s also often more complicated than you might think in claiming compensation. The courts will make a very simple assessment about what’s you’re entitled to based on the severity of the accident and how much you’ve lost in earnings and paid out in expenses. However this figure can vary considerably and you need to gather evidence that outlines the full extent of your losses.
