Making a compensation claim is a daunting task. When you want to make a compensation claim Purfleet will have a choice of solicitors for you but how do you know where to begin? Any compensation claim will be guided by the same criteria whoever you pursue it with. It pays to make yourself familiar with these before you begin.
The three things a compensation claim in Purfleet provider will need to know
1. When did the accident occur? To be eligible under current legislation to make a claim for compensation your injury must have occurred within the last three years, anything outside this range is deemed out of scope.
2. The accident must have resulted in an injury that required medical attention either at the time of the event or afterwards. It does not have to be a physical injury, it can be a mental one; these are also accepted as long as you have the medical backup.
3. The accident must have been someone else’s fault. This is really the key point in making any personal injury claim. You must have someone to apportion the blame to in order to make a claim. The old saying “no blame no claim” is as true as it ever was, with insurance companies fighting to the bitter end about who was responsible for an accident you have to be able to prove who and what caused your accident, and also have witnesses to support you.
Other things that will count towards your personal injury claim will be details of costs incurred by you as a result of your accident. Have you not been able to work? Have you had to pay increased childcare or travel costs because of your injury? These are all things that are included in a claim and you should keep a record of them all. Details of your medical appointments are also important. Many claims are handled purely by telephone so keeping accurate records will assist you greatly.
