Compensation Claim in Sherington


If you have suffered an accident in the last three years, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim in Sherington. The local area will have a range of legal firms for you to choose from, but all will want to know the same three basic things before they begin working on your claim. Anyone considering making a compensation claim should be aware of the legal criteria surrounding them before they begin.

Knowing the requirements

  • Your accident must have happened in the last three years. Anything outside this timescale would be considered out of scope. There are certain exceptions, but these normally relate to accidents in the workplace governed by a different set of rules.
  • The accident must have occurred as a result of someone else’s actions. Unless there is a third party involved, there can be no blame attached and therefore no claim.
  • You must have suffered a personal injury as a result. This does not have to be physical — many claims are made for mental trauma, as well as for broken bones.

Other requirements of compensation claims

It always helps if you have a witness to confirm your version of the events. This can be someone who was with you, a passerby who saw the accident, or it can be as remote as CCTV coverage or the details of an accident report. If you were involved in a motoring accident then there should be a police incident report — this will need to be provided.

If you do not have witnesses, then whoever is dealing with your compensation claim in Sherington will have a difficult job in making a successful case for you. However, that does not mean that you cannot go ahead with a claim; it is always best to take the advice of your legal representative and not rely on the stories of what other people have managed to claim in the past.
