Do you need to make a car accident compensation claim in Burnley?
There are many casualties every year on Britain’s roads as well as fatalities. If you have been injured in an accident involving a car, then you could be eligible to make a car accident compensation claim.
Criteria for making a personal injury claim
There are two main points that you must be able to prove if you wish to make a car accident compensation claim in Burnley. The first is to prove that you were not to blame for your accident. The second is that you have to demonstrate that another person was to blame for it. In other words, you cannot claim if a wild animal caused the accident.
When people are injured in car accidents, the police need to be called to the scene. They have to investigate the causes of such accidents. When the investigations are wrapped up, they produce an accident report. You will need a copy of this if you decide to make a car accident compensation claim in Burnley or anywhere else in the UK.
Also when people are injured, an ambulance should be called, and perhaps a fire fighting crew if someone is trapped in a vehicle.
You will need your medical report if you pursue a car accident compensation claim in Burnley. This will be used to calculate the amount of compensation you receive for your injuries, although it will not be the total amount. Compensation can be awarded for other things, such as loss of earnings.
How long do you have to file a claim?
Although you usually have three years to make a claim for injuries sustained in an accident in Britain, this is not always the case. You should call us at Accident Advice Helpline now to find out how long you actually have to file your potential claim. When the time limit for filing your claim is up, you can only file it if you and your personal injury solicitor can prove that there were exceptional circumstances which prevented you from doing so within the specified period.
