Denbigh personal injury claims are not to be undertaken lightly. This is because the law can sometimes be more complicated than people imagine. This can lead them to get into all sorts of trouble. In this article we’ll look at some of the key things you should know if you’re considering making a claim.
Your rights when making Denbigh personal injury claims
In the UK, when we assist with Denbigh personal injury claims, or indeed any sort of injury claim, we work on the basis of blame. If you can prove that the accident was not your fault and was, by extension, someone else’s fault, then you could be entitled to claim compensation.
However, you should not forget to think about the severity of the injury. Although you may have heard all sorts of stories about people who were only slightly injured, but went on to claim thousands in compensation, this is not the way it works in the real world.
In truth you will have to be able to show that the accident had a measurably negative effect on your quality of life, and the injury you sustained required medical treatment. Otherwise, sadly, no matter how good your claim might be, you will not be able to proceed.
Finally you should remember something called the three year rule. This stipulates that if you leave an injury for more than three years after you sustained it, you will not be able to make a claim at all. This means that if you have been in an accident, it is never too soon to start thinking about making a claim. Three years may seem like a long time but you’ll be surprised how quickly time can slip by.
When it comes to making claims, many people make the mistake of thinking only about the location of the lawyer. After all Denbigh personal injury claims should be handled by people from Denbigh – isn’t that right? The truth is anything but.
It is perfectly possible to spread your net wider and speak to people from much further afield who can give you all the advice and support you need in making a claim. Going further afield naturally expands your choice and means that if it comes to claiming compensation you’ll be in a much better position than would otherwise have been the case.
