Car crashes can leave one feeling shaky, scared, traumatised, confused and baffled. These responses are natural and understandable under such circumstances. However, it is also important that you hire a personal injury solicitor to guide you on your options. As the injured party you should consider claiming after a car crash in Croydon.
How to go about claiming after a car crash in Croydon
Claiming after a car crash in Croydon isn’t as difficult when you have a great legal firm like Accident Advice Helpline on your side. It involves the following steps:
- Finding a suitable and capable lawyer who you are compatible with – call us at Accident Advice Helpline for assistance with this.
- Gathering and submitting materials as evidence.
- Getting medical attention from a doctor. The written medical notes will be used to prove that you were suffering from genuine injuries caused by the accident.
You see, as the claimant you are seeking to prove that you are free of fault, and were not liable for the accident, in any way.
This is exactly why you need an excellent solicitor, from us – Accident Advice Helpline. Our personal injury solicitor will explain the entire claims process to you, and therefore make it possible that you receive the maximum amount of compensation possible. We want to help you get what you deserve from your personal injury claim.
What is compensation?
Simply put, compensation is a sum of money that you are awarded to ‘compensate’ you for the financial losses, you are likely to incur because of the accident. The claimant, along with his or her lawyer, decides upon the amount and includes it in the claim. Your lawyer then negotiates this sum with the person who is paying the compensation.
In law, the person who caused the accident is the one who is due to pay the compensation. This ‘person’ could actually be an organisation or a company. In practice, most people are insured for personal injury claims after a car crash because they have taken out a motor insurance policy.
When we represent you, we will be negotiating with the insurance company to get you as much compensation as possible.
