Do you need to make a compensation claim? Have you suffered an accident in the last three years that was not your fault? If you need to make a compensation claim in Shifnal, the area may have plenty of law firms for you to choose from, but it pays to understand the requirements and small print behind a personal injury claim.
Making a compensation claim in Shifnal
Before your begin your compensation claim in Shifnal, you should understand what is going to be needed from you as the claimant. The current legislation for personal injury claims requires that the event in question meet the following:
- The accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim;
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault; and
- You suffered a personal injury as a result which needed medical attention.
As well as the above, you should be able to provide the following in support of your claim: witness statements and contact details, police incident reports, medical reports and details of all injuries and medical attention you received. Of course, you do not need all of these — your claim provider will best instruct you on what is needed for your particular case.
What should you do now?
If you have been able to answer yes to all three requirements, then you can contact a solicitor and start a compensation claim. You do not need to use a legal firm that are close to you — you can if you wish use a national company who will handle your claim over the phone. Location is not a factor in making successful compensation claims.
