Compensation in Lichfield

0

The roads around Lichfield are notoriously busy so it’s no surprise that road traffic accidents are among the most common types of claims for compensation in Lichfield. This article will tell you more about what’s involved when you make a claim after a traffic accident and how you can improve your chances of getting justice.

Claiming Compensation in Lichfield

At Accident Advice Helpline we deal with hundreds of claims for road traffic accidents every day, but although many of them are relatively straightforward there are complications that can arise.

In theory the rules are pretty simple. You can claim compensation if you are injured in a traffic accident which was not your fault. The injuries need to have been severe enough to warrant medical attention and you must be able to prove your case in a court of law – and that’s where things can get tricky.

If you’ve seen a shunt on the road you’ll know that the two drivers rarely go out of their way to claim responsibility. And given that accidents are over in a flash it can sometimes be difficult to disentangle fact from fiction. Nevertheless this will be the task confronting the court should it go that far.

Gathering Evidence

For this reason it’s important that you have evidence on your side. Try to get the contact details of any witnesses at the scene including bystanders and any police officers. You will not need to contact them yourself, but leave this to your law firm. If possible it might also be useful to have pictures of the accident scene although it’s understandable to think that you probably have other things on your mind at this stage.

It’s also a good idea to get at least one medical checkup. Indeed, to ensure accuracy it’s often worth getting two separate check-ups to ensure you have as much information as possible about your incident.

Many people often overlook things such as psychological trauma, either because they do not think it’s relevant or are not sure if it’s connected to the incident. The rules should be that you always report anything you’re experiencing and let us decide whether we think it should be part and parcel of any compensation claim.
