Nobody wants to have an accident. Sadly they are not things that we can always prevent. A slip on a wet floor, a trip over an uneven kerb and we find ourselves in the long queue at Accident and Emergency. Modern pressures mean that we all live our lives a little too much on the fast lane. Clock watching is often the norm for a working person and pressure can lead to lack of concentration which increases the risk of accidents.

You may have had cold calls from them in the evenings, seen then standing at street corners, or even on a television advert. While it is good to know that there is so much help out there choosing who to make your compensation claim in Thornton-Cleveleys with can be a big task. So what actually is the best route you can take if you feel you have suffered unnecessarily?
Points to remember.
You cannot make a claim simply because you have had an accident. There has to be blame attached; which simply means that your misfortune arose as a result of someone else’s negligence. Remember the often used compensation claim saying “No blame no claim.”
You will need to provide records of all and any medical attention you received as this will be proof of the injury your suffered and you will also need the details of anyone who may have witnessed your accident.
The date of the accident is of course vital as claims can only be made within three years of the date of occurrence (this can be extended with certain specific claims).
