If you need to make a compensation claim in Sheringham, the local area will have a good choice of solicitors for you to chose from choose from. But before you begin, it pays to ask yourself if you fully understand the requirements behind making a personal injury claim.
When you want to begin making your compensation claim in Sheringham, all law firms and solicitors will want to know the same three things. In order to make a successful claim, you must be able to confirm the following three things:
- The accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim;
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault. If no one else was directly or indirectly involved in your accident, then you will be unable to make a claim; and
- You must have suffered a personal injury as a result. Details of this will have to be given as evidence.
You must also have details of the accident, including time, date and any witnesses’ contact details. You will also need to give details of medical appointments you have attended and also photographs of the site and your injury if possible. The more detail you can give the company handling your compensation claim in Sheringham, the better chance you have of making a successful claim. Police incident reports are also important.
