What Makes a Successful Compensation Claim in Pontypool?
Accidents happen on a daily basis, whether it is at work or on the street, many of which could result in as much as thousands of pounds of compensation. In many cases, this is left unclaimed. Accident Advice Helpline are designed to help the public with their compensation claim in Pontypool, ensuring you get the result you are looking for. If you don’t, you won’t have to pay a penny! Prior to making your claim, there are some points you should consider.
Period of Time
If you are making a compensation claim in Pontypool for an injury which was not recent, you will need to backtrack and work out exactly when it was before you start making your claim. If you decide to take our 30-second test or speak to an advisor about your claim, you will need to have this information to hand. The period of time which has elapsed since your accident may have an effect on whether your claim will be successful and/or how much you will be due, so make sure that you know this before you begin the process.
Who Was to Blame?
It is important to think about your accident or injury and work out who was at fault. If it was your own fault, it is not worth making your compensation claim in Pontypool, but if it was someone else’s, such as your employer or the council, you should definitely start the claim process. These questions will be asked during the process, so it is important to be clear of the information before you start.
Evidence to Support
It is always beneficial to provide evidence to support your compensation claim in Pontypool if you have it. If you had a trip or fall, for example, and took photos of your injuries, these are important documents if your case is taken to court. It is, of course, not the first thing you think about after an injury, but it can definitely help with your claim.
You should also have information on your medical records, such as the type of injury you sustained and the course of treatment you were given. The solicitor from Accident Advice Helpline may have to use this as evidence, and it could have an effect on whether your compensation claim is successful and/or how much you will be likely to receive.
You may need witnesses to back up your story, so it is a good idea to think about who may be able to help with this. It is not always the case that this will be required — it depends how far your compensation claim goes and whether it reaches the courts (which is highly unlikely). Your witness may be a friend or family member who was with you at the time, or a colleague who seen your trip or fall at work.
