If you’re thinking of making a compensation claim in Yarm, it’s likely that you’ve suffered some sort of injury. Although you may be eager to take legal action after an accident, there are certain criteria you will need to meet in order to be eligible to make a claim.
Could you make a compensation claim in Yarm?
If you want to obtain compensation for an injury, you’ll need to prove that it was caused by someone else. If you were involved in a road traffic accident, for example, you’ll need to show that another driver or road user caused the incident to occur.
Whilst many compensation claims are aimed at other individuals, it’s also possible to make a claim against a company, if they are responsible for your injuries. If you’re at work, for example, it may be the company which are liable for the incident, rather than a specific person.
Although someone else needs to have caused your injuries, this doesn’t mean that they had to intend to harm you. If they made a mistake or were negligent and caused you to get hurt, you should still be able to make a claim, even if they didn’t set out to harm you.
Whilst you can make a claim for almost any type of injury, it’s essential that you received medical treatment following the incident.
When should you make your claim?
After an accident, you’ll need to obtain medical treatment and begin your recovery. This can take time and you may not want to rush into making a claim immediately after the incident.
However, most claimants are subject to a 3 year deadline so you will need to take action within this timeframe if you want to obtain compensation.
