What do you need to know before making your personal injury claim in Halwill Junction, or indeed anywhere else in the UK? You should consider whether or not you are eligible, how you will fund the claim, and also who is going to represent you.
The first consideration is your eligibility to make a claim for personal injury, and this is based on three main requirements:
A three-year timescale
You have three years from the date of your accident in which to start a claim. This is sometimes extended in certain circumstances – when a minor is involved, for example, but it’s good advice to start finding out more about the process of claiming as soon as possible after your accident.
Not to blame
Personal injury claims are always made against a negligent third party, which means that you must not have been to blame for causing your accident.
The third requirement is that you must have had your injuries treated by a medical professional around the time of the incident. This forms an important part of your evidence, but the treatment can be received from your own GP – it doesn’t have to be in a hospital.
