Do you need to make car accident injury claims in East Dunbartonshire?
Although many people are eligible to make a compensation claim after an accident, drivers often think that they won’t be able to obtain compensation. However, this isn’t the case at all. Just because you were driving at the time of the incident, it doesn’t mean that you were responsible.
If you were sitting in traffic, for example, and another vehicle hit you, it’s likely that the other driver would be held responsible. Similarly, if someone cut in front of you and a collision occurred, they should be held responsible for the incident.
As long as you can show that you weren’t responsible for the accident, you should be able to make a claim, regardless of whether you were driving at the time. If you’ve been hurt in this way and you want to make car accident injury claims in East Dunbartonshire, why not contact us and find out how we can help.
Of course, you will need to have received medical treatment for your injuries in order to be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
How serious were your injuries?
Although it is possible to make compensation claims following a serious accident, you don’t have to have sustained serious injuries in order to be eligible to make a claim. In fact, you can make a claim for any type of injury, providing it wasn’t your fault and you received medical help afterwards.
Don’t forget – you can be eligible to receive compensation for psychological as well as physical injuries. If you’re experiencing anxiety or depression, for example, and it was caused by the incident, you could be eligible to receive additional compensation.
How long does it take to make a claim?
In general, the length of time it takes to obtain compensation does vary. If the person responsible for your injuries admits their liability, for example, you could obtain compensation fairly quickly. However, you needn’t worry about how long your claim will take as we’ll be able to handle it on your behalf.
If you were injured some time ago but you’ve yet to make a claim, you may find that you need to act quickly. In most cases, claimants will need to take action within three years of getting hurt in order to be eligible to obtain compensation.
