If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault in Doncaster, it is your legal right to make a claim for financial compensation. If you or somebody you know has suffered this type of injury, it’s prudent to discuss your case with Doncaster accident claim solicitors to discover whether you’re eligible to make a claim and discuss the strength of your case.
So long as you aren’t liable for your accident and you have sustained an injury, you could have a strong case for making a claim. Doncaster accident claim solicitors can help you better understand the claims process and answer all of your questions, such as:
- What is the average payout for my injury?
- When can I realistically expect a result?
- What information will I need to provide my solicitors?
- What happens if my claim is unsuccessful?
- How is compensation calculated?
- How is compensation awarded?
This valuable information will help you to make the right choice moving forward – to claim or not to claim. If you do wish to make a claim, you may do so on your own, however we recommend that you use Doncaster accident claim solicitors. We do so because solicitors’ understand the claims process better than anybody and know what it takes to process a claim properly. There’s a lot of paperwork involved with making a claim, so the question you’ve got to ask yourself is whether you feel confident claiming on your own accord? And if you are, can you rely on your own ability to provide all necessary evidence to back up your claim? If the answer is no, Doncaster accident claim solicitors are the way to go.
The role of your solicitor is to make a claim on your behalf in your best interests, using reasonable evidence to back up your claim. Your solicitor will need to know when and where your accident happened, how the accident happened and the injury you have sustained in order to kick-start the claims process. You may then need to provide additional information, and you will most certainly have to attend a medical examination; this is a critical stage of the claims process because it’s the only proof that you have been injured.
Without a medical examination that backs up your injury, a claim will in 99.99% of cases be contested. And when you consider that a claim can take 6 – 12 months or more to process on average, that’s a lot of time that’ll have been wasted. So it’s worth following your solicitor’s advice and getting all of your information ready.
