Busy main roads are open gateways to many accidents. Speed limits are set down for a reason but many motorists can travel at a much faster speed. Careless drivers are often the cause of accidents whether it is on a country road, dual carriageway or on a bridge. If an accident happens which was not your fault you could be entitled to make an Essex negligence claim.
Complications In An Essex Negligence Claim
Many cases for compensation are not plain sailing. Although you may collect all of the evidence you needed including photographs of the scene and eye witness details other road bumps are still possible.
One instance of a road bump you may come across is an uninsured driver. Just because the other driver is uninsured doesn’t mean you won’t be able to make an Essex negligence claim though it can be a little more hard work.
When gathering all the evidence at the scene of the accident it is beneficial to get a photograph of the driver just in case they give you false details. They could do this even if they seem to be really nice people so be careful and get the picture for your own piece of mind.
On most occasions your legal representative will be able to resolve your case without needing a court to be involved. They would do this through a set process of negotiations with the other party discussing details such as the amount of compensation being claimed and the responsibility of the accident.
If no agreement can be reached then your case may end up in a hearing. The legal representation you hire will be with you and will present all of the evidence that has been provided for the case. In this circumstance the judge will make the decision of the case pending all the information that is presented.
Road accidents are quite common but if the accident wasn’t your fault you shouldn’t pay for any costs that you occur as a result. Putting through a claim for compensation can be a daunting experience but there are people who can help you.
