If we look at the weather conditions during accidents, we’ll notice that most accidents happen when it’s raining. Rain adds a dramatic dimension to our lives. If we are inside, it makes us feel calmer, more relaxed. Outdoors, however, it has the opposite effect.
People become more agitated; they are stressed because of getting wet, because of deteriorating traffic conditions and they are suddenly all in a hurry. All of this makes them more prone to accidents.
However, a road traffic accident that happened because of the rain is, in front of the law, no different than any other road traffic accident. Someone is still guilty, someone is still a victim. And if it resulted in personal injuries, it means that the victim qualifies to file a compensation claim in Tilbury and is able to request financial compensation to which they are entitled.
Why personal injury compensations exist
The aim of personal injury compensation is to minimize the effects of an injury on a person’s life as much as possible, by speeding up their physical recovery and by covering most of the costs that they have had or will have, that the accident has generated. The underlying reason is that nobody should pay for someone else’s mistakes.
If you trip and break your arm because you were looking at your mobile phone and failed to see the step, then it’s your own fault and you have to handle the problem yourself. If, however, you trip and break your arm because someone fails to do their job in the supermarket, they should pay for their mistake.
More exactly, since their mistake resulted in you getting injured, they should pay you. A compensation claim in Tilbury is always filed against the person, company or public institution which is responsible for the injuries of the claimant.

How to prove your case
You probably intuitively realize that, when making a personal injury claim, it is not enough to just hand in a sheet of paper with the story of what happened and how it impacted you.
Instead, you will need to provide evidence to back up your case, anything you can put together, from police reports to witnesses’ declarations, bills and receipts. Keep everything together, don’t throw them away, and hand them in to your legal adviser at the beginning of your claim.
