Compensation claim Thurlestone – the basic facts.

- They will need to know that the accident causing your injury was someone else’s fault. No compensation claim provider will take on a case unless there was a third party involved. To be able to make a claim there must be someone or something to claim against.
- Your accident must have happened within the last three years. This is the current legislation surrounding personal injury claims and anything outside this time scale is considered out of scope.
- As a result of the accident you must have suffered some form of injury.You must have suffered a personal injury as a result of the accident. This injury must have been treated by a doctor at some stage and you will be expected to prove that you received medical attention.
Physical v Emotional – More than one cause to claim.
A physical injury such as a broken limb is an easy thing to establish and its affects on the victim are easy to monitor. However an emotional injury that affects someone mentally is far more difficult to assess even though its effects may be longer lasting. An emotional injury can lead to stress and anxiety which causes problems within itself; or to a lack of confidence to carry out normal activities such as driving which may have a drastic affect on the day to day life of that person. These cases are equally as important as those with physical injury but will of course need a medical assessment to establish the extent of the person’s suffering.
If you have suffered an accident and are having emotional or anxiety issues as a result then you should always seek medical help. Following this then you should speak to a claims professional to establish your grounds for making a claim. Don’t feel that because you do not have a leg in plaster or cuts and bruises you are exempt from making a claim; you are not and should seek advice today.
