Who can make a compensation claim in St Lawrence
The main requirements you have to meet in order to qualify for making a personal injury claim are:
- you must have been injured through no fault of your own. This means that you should be able to prove that someone else is to blame for your injury. This is usually done either with a police report or with declarations from witnesses. People often forget about these things, which is why it is important to keep in mind the documentation requirements for your personal injury claim as soon as the injury takes place. This would mean, in this particular example, to ask for contact numbers of the people who witnessed your injury, so that you can later on ask them for declarations.
- the injury must have happened not longer than three years ago. If you allow more than three years to pass from the date of your injury, without claiming the compensation, you automatically lose any right to it.
How long it takes for a claim to be processed
The amount of time it takes until a compensation claim in St Lawrence is processed is a relative figure, depending on many details. What you can do about it, to keep it as short as possible, is to provide enough documentation from the beginning.
If you fail to do so, then you will be asked for more evidence, process which will prolong the duration of your claim.
What are the expenses that can be covered by your claim
The general rule is that personal injury claims cover most expenses that were related to the accident, caused by the accident.
This may include childcare, transportation costs, lost wages, medical expenses, future medical expenses, etc. You will have to provide documents to back up any expense you are claiming to have reimbursed.
Which legal adviser should you work with
There are a few things that differentiate one legal adviser from another. The main one is their experience.
You want to work with a company that has already proved their expertise in the branch of claims your case belongs to.
So if you have an accident at work claim, it makes no sense to work with an accident solicitor with extensive experience with medical negligence cases.
