When it comes to car accident claims in Wigan, it’s entirely understandable that you may not be sure where to go or what to do in order to make a new injury claim and make sure it’s the strongest case it can be. At Accident Advice Helpline, we aim to help anyone eligible for compensation at every stage of your claim – even before you’ve decided you want to make a claim – so that you have all the information you need to go ahead.
1) Checking to ensure you are eligible for compensation
First of all, it’s worth considering whether or not you think you might be eligible for compensation by looking at the basic eligibility criteria that personal injury firms like Accident Advice Helpline will use to decide if they will take on your case.
In order to qualify, you (or the person you are claiming on behalf of) must have been injured and received medical attention due to an accident occurring within the last three years which was caused due to someone else’s negligence.
2) Considering evidence of your accident
Evidence may be used to determine if your claim is strong enough to entitle you to compensation, and although you don’t need to provide any before contacting Accident Advice Helpline, it’s a good idea to think about what evidence you could use to help ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.
For car accident claims in Wigan, the kind of evidence which will be immensely beneficial to you are records from your own or the other driver’s insurance company, as this will include information that will be vital in court, such as:
- when and where in the United Kingdom the accident took place
- the conditions of weather, road and vehicles when the accident took place
- the sequence of events leading up to, during and after the accident
- any injuries you suffered because of the accident
All of this evidence can be used by solicitors such as those working at Accident Advice Helpline to determine that you were not at fault for the accident happening, but also to show that you are legally entitled to compensation to cover the costs of your injuries.
