What you need to know about claiming after a car crash in Mid Suffolk
The first thing you need to know about making a claim for compensation following a car crash, or any other accident for that matter is that simply being involved in an accident is not enough. Lots of people have accidents every day and this does not necessarily mean that they can claim compensation. There are certain criteria that need to be met in order for us to be able to take on your case.
Firstly you need to be able to demonstrate that you received an injury of some description from the accident. This will usually have been serious enough for you to need to see a doctor and seek medical advice, perhaps even needing to receive treatment. Your GP or whoever you saw will then make a record of your visit and injuries in your medical history and this will provide vital evidence to support your claim.
Secondly you will need to be able to show that the accident itself was not your fault. You will have to make a claim against someone, and you cannot do that against your self. If you are not sure who was to blame your Accident Advice Helpline solicitor will be able to help you by looking at the facts of your accident and the details of what happened.
Thirdly you will need to be able to provide evidence of when the accident happened. This is important as many claims must be started within three years. If the police were called to the scene then there will be a police report which will show the time and date the accident occurred. This is suitable evidence.
