Do you know the location of Fylde? This is actually the name of a government district, but it is also a constituency in Lancashire. It takes up a portion of the western side of Lancashire and is home to some familiar settlements, including Lytham St Annes and Kirkham among others. Few locals ever claim compensation in Fylde, purely because there is usually little reason to do so.
You might reasonably wonder, then, what might make you do this, or at least to consider the possibility. In reality, you may do it if you have been hurt in a crash or other type of accident you didn’t cause. However, that’s not enough to ensure you can claim – you must also provide proof that someone else was the cause.
How can such proof be provided?
Every situation is different. In the case of a road accident, witnesses may help provide a fuller picture of what happened. Witnesses are good to have in any situation, but don’t worry if no-one else witnessed your accident. CCTV footage and road traffic accident reports can also be used to help support your claim.
