Compensation claim in Thrapston
If you are making a compensation claim in Thrapston your personal injury lawyer wherever they are based will need to establish that your accident fits into the three main claim criteria.
Any compensation claim must fit into the following guidelines:
- The accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim.
- The accident must have been caused by someone else. Remember this does not have to be an individual it can be a company or individual but it must have been their negligence that caused the incident.
- You must have suffered a personal injury as a result. This can be physical or emotional leading to stress and anxiety.
To support all this you will need to have the details of any medical treatment you have received, what your injuries were and what witnesses you have of the event. If you have no witnesses then your claim will be a very difficult one to prove; you can use CCTV, police incident reports and accident reports in place of eye witnesses and you should discuss this with your compensation claim provider.
