If you need to make a compensation claim in Wooler may not have too many legal firms for you to choose from. Not all law firms deal in personal injury law so you may need to find a more specialised company to deal with your claim. All of them will ask for the same three criteria to be satisfied before you can make a claim.
Compensation claim in Wooler – the basics behind making a claim
- The accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim.
- The accident must have been someone else’s fault. 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 injury must have received medical attention and you must be able to prove that you sought medical help.
- You must have details of the accident including any witness contact details, details of medical appointments and also photographs if possible. The more detail you can give, the better your chances are of making a successful claim. If it was an accident to which the police were called you will need the incident report number.
