Suffering an accident is never easy. It can leave you with emotional as well as physical scars and can have a long term effect on your health. Add into this the cost of not being able to work, increased childcare and transport costs and possibly the cost of a new car and it all becomes a stressful experience that take some time to recover from. It is a startling fact that many people do not even consider making a compensation claim in Stranraer.
Making a compensation claim in Stranraer
If you wish to make a compensation claim in Stranraer, the town will be able to offer you a choice but before you start make sure that you have the information that they need at hand so that there is no delay in starting your claim.
- You must be able to prove that your accident happened within the last three years.
- You must be able to show that the accident was someone else’s fault.
- You must have suffered an injury as a result.
There are of course variations to the above three basics all of which will be considered by your compensation claim provider. To fall within legal scope the accident must have occurred within the last three years;but there are exceptions when the accident was at work and the solicitor for your compensation claim in Stranraer would be able to give you more detail.
The person liable for the accident does not have to be an individual and need not have been present. Claims are often made against companies who have caused an accident through neglect or poor workmanship.
The injury does not have to be physical. If you have suffered anxiety as a result of an accident and can no longer carry out a normal life then this is acceptable grounds for a claim. You do have to have medical confirmation of your state however and you may have to attend a series of appointments to establish this.
