The complexity of your claim
In some instances, an accident can be very straight forward. For example, you may have been driving along the road when another road user drove into the back of you. The rules stipulated in the Highway Code make it pretty clear that people who drive into the back of a vehicle are liable for the accident. The third party may try to deny liability, for example, suggesting that you broke suddenly; however, due to the stopping distances advised etc there is little chance that their argument is likely to hold any weight.
However, not many claims are this straightforward. In the vast majority of cases the third party being accused of liability will argue the case and try to deny having any responsibility for the accident. This is why Charnwood accident claim solicitors are often needed – to provide counter arguments and where necessary use their knowledge of the law to provide evidence for why liability exists.
