Could you make car accident injury claims in Dumfries and Galloway?
If you’ve been involved in an accident of some kind, you may want to consider making a compensation claim afterwards. However, if you want to successfully obtain compensation there are some criteria you will need to meet.
Who caused the incident?
Generally, you will only be able to make a claim if someone or something else was responsible for the incident. This means that you will need to show that you weren’t responsible for the accident in order to successfully obtain compensation.
Did you obtain medical help?
Similarly, you will need to show that you received medical attention for your injuries if you plan on making a claim. This may have involved a stay in hospital, treatment from your doctor or treatment at a walk-in clinic.
Luckily, all of your medical treatment should be listed on your medical records so it should be easy to prove that you sought medical help after the incident.
When did the accident occur?
Unfortunately, claimants don’t normally have an unlimited amount of time in which to obtain compensation. In most cases, you will be expected to make your claim within three years of getting hurt. If you’ve sustained an injury within this time, why not contact Accident Advice Helpline and find out how we can help you?
If you meet the criteria listed above, there’s a good chance that you will be eligible to make a claim and you could receive more compensation than you expect.
