Compensation claim in Whitstable
While you may have not had much luck looking for somewhere to make your compensation claim in Whitstable you will find that Accident Advice Helpline will be able to deal with your claim wherever you are based. Most cases can be handled totally via telephone so location is never a problem. The company’s helpline is open twenty four hours a day seven days a week so there is never a bad time to call. They have been helping people pursue injury claims for over fifteen years so whilst they may not be just around the corner they are well experienced and will deal with your claim as easily as if they were just next door.
What do they need to know?
They will need to know all about your accident: when it happened, what happened, who was there and what happened as a result. The three prime things they need to know are that the accident happened within the last three years (dates outside that area are outside the scope of personal injury claims unless related to accidents at work), what the injury was that you suffered and who was to blame. To make any successful claim there has to be a third party to claim against. Falling over in your own home and breaking a wrist will not constitute a claim: falling over in your own home because workmen had left tools lying around or not cleared up spilled water would constitute a claim, as the accident was caused inadvertently by someone else.
You do not have to have witnesses, but in truth only a very clever solicitor would make a successful claim with no hard evidence. If there are no witnesses then making your compensation claim could become difficult. Your claim provider would need to see an accident report, or the police incident report or photographic evidence. CCTV cameras are useful if the incident occurred in a public place. There will also be a need to see evidence of your injury; again photos are useful and medical records are a must. If you do not have what is considered sufficient then a further medical assessment may be deemed necessary.

The answer to that is no. Not everybody does win.
