Making claims after car collisions in Chelmsford
Anyone who has been injured in an accident on the road may be entitled to make a road traffic accident claim, so it does not make any difference whether you were driving a vehicle, a passenger in a car or public transport, a cyclist, or a pedestrian. As long as you were injured through no fault of your own, you may be able to claim compensation.
As with all personal injury claims, there is only a 3 year time limit in which you are able to file a claim, so you do need to act as quickly as possible to ensure that you do not miss out.
In fact, we would recommend you get in touch with us as soon after your accident as you feel able, because not only will this help you meet the deadline for claiming, but it will also ensure that the incident that caused your injury is fresh in both your mind and the minds of your witnesses.
If we are to be able to help you claim for your road traffic accident, in most cases, you will also need to have obtained medical help following your accident. This is the case because you will need to show proof that you were infact injured, and having an official report from a medical professional is the only watertight way of doing this.
Of course, if you have sustained injuries, then seeing a doctor is the sensible thing to do in any case, so this should not be a problem.
It is also useful if you can present as much evidence of your road traffic accident, including witness evidence and photographs, as possible, as it will really help us to help you build a strong case against the person(s) responsible for your injuries.
