There are some exceptions but these are usually confined to accidents in the workplace and have different legislation.
They will also need to ascertain that the accident was someone else’s fault. Simply having an accident is not enough; there has to be someone else involved either directly or indirectly and it has to be their actions or negligent behaviour that caused the accident.
Finally, before agreeing to launch your compensation claim in Thatcham, they will they will seek confirmation that you received medical attention for your injury. It also helps if you can give details of any lost earnings, increased costs and other expenses that you had to pay as a result of your accident.
Your compensation claim provider will need to know details of the medical attention you received and the extent of your injury. They will also need to know who or what caused the accident and be given the details of any witnesses. If you have no witnesses you will need to provide photographs, accident or police reports, or even CCTV footage to support your claim.
