A common form of distraction for drivers is texting while driving. If you have had an accident because another driver was texting, you could be thinking about claiming after a car accident in Copeland.
If you have been in an accident that has been caused by a driver texting at the wheel, contact Accident Advice Helpline to see if you have a claim. Depending on the circumstances, you could potentially be awarded hundreds if not thousands of pounds in compensation.
Claiming after a car accident in Copeland
One important thing to note is the timeline – you must make a claim within three years of your accident occurring, after which your right to claim will no longer be valid. Don’t think too long about claiming after a car accident in Copeland. Once the deadline for filing a claim has passed you must prove that there were exceptional circumstances that had prevented you from filing it within the set limitation period.
It is imperative in these cases to prove that the driver was in fact texting behind the wheel, so the more you can provide in terms of surveillance footage or witness statements, the stronger your case will be. Police reports play an essential role in determining who is at fault as well. When this is provided to your solicitor, they can carry out an assessment and see how much you could be owed.
