If you need to make a compensation claim Shillington, the local area will have a choice of legal firms for you to choose from. Before you approach one, it pays to become familiar with the requirements behind making a personal injury claim.
Know the basics
Before you start looking for somewhere to make your compensation claim Shillington and finding that right legal firm for you, it pays to make sure that you are aware of what is required from you as the claimant:
- The accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim;
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault. This does not have to be an individual — it can be a company also — but it must have been their negligence that caused the incident;
- You must have suffered a personal injury as a result. This injury must have received medical attention and you must be able to prove that you sought medical help; and
- You must have details of the accident including any witness contact details, details of medical appointments and also photographs if possible. The more detail you can provide your chosen legal firm, the better.

If you are happy that you can comply with the above requirements, you need to find a solicitor.
