    Compensation claim Sydenham


    Compensation Claims and Reasons Why They Are Unsuccessful

    Claims for compensation are made against people who have caused an accident and injury, due to a lack of care and attention and/or negligence. As long as the injury resulted in the victim seeking medical attention, it is possible to make a compensation claim in Sydenham for the physical and psychological damage which has been caused. In order to make a claim, there are certain criteria which you must adhere to. There are various reasons why a claim for compensation may end up being unsuccessful.

    Time Lapse

    One of the criteria you must be able to meet for a successful compensation claim in Sydenham is that the accident took place within the last three years. If the time has lapsed, it is unlikely that your claim will be able to be processed. It is therefore important that you make your claim as quickly as possible after your accident, in order to have any chance of getting the justice you deserve.

    Blameless Accident

    Accidents happen and compensation claims only exist for those which are caused by someone else. If your accident was caused by your own carelessness or it was just a blameless incident, you will not have a successful compensation claim in Sydenham. It is illegal, not to mention immoral to make a claim which is unjust and unfair so you should only start the process if you are certain that someone else caused your injury. If you are unsure, you can still call Accident Advice Helpline and the trained advisers will be able to provide some guidance on the subject.

    Lack of Evidence

    Any type of compensation claim in Sydenham, from a road traffic accident to a faulty product claim, will require evidence to substantiate it. If you don’t have any evidence, or at least do not have the evidence required for the claim, you are highly unlikely to be successful. You should always attempt to supply as much evidence relating to the accident and injury as you possibly can, as this will be used by the solicitors to substantiate your claims.

    Failed Medical

    In the event that you fail a medical or do not receive medical attention as a result of your injury, it is unlikely that your claim will be successful. It is a requirement of any claim that you seek medical attention, as this proves the severity of your injury. If you don’t receive any medical treatment or you fail your medical test, the solicitors will have no proof that the accident caused you any pain, whether it is physical or psychological.
