    Expert injury solicitors in Todmorden


    Road accidents are some of the most common sparks for personal injury litigation. Unfortunately, they’re also some of the more difficult things to prove. This article will look at how you can find expert injury solicitors in Todmorden who can help you to win your case.

    Why are road accidents so difficult?

    As with any other type of personal injury claim, road accidents must conform to several basic rules. They must be someone else’s fault and they must have happened within the last three years. The injury must have been bad enough to require medical assistance.

    The difficulty often comes when you try to convince a court that your argument is the correct one. Think of moments when you’ve seen shunts in the road: there will be a pause and then two people will fly out of their cars, blaming the other. It is the job of the judge to get between the two and make an assessment about whose story they find most compelling. It’s not an easy job in the slightest, and to do this the court will rely extensively on witness statements.

    Getting evidence

    If you’re confident that you’re not to blame, then you will welcome any independent evidence that comes along as a chance to more convincingly prove your case. Indeed, if you’re really switched on, you’ll have been gathering the contact details of witnesses and police officers who attended the scene to pass onto your lawyer. The more of this you have, the better your position will be.

    Assessing compensation

    As well as proving the question of blame, you should also look at how you’re going to illustrate how much compensation should be owed. You don’t want to look silly and claim too much, but you don’t want to miss out either.

    Compensation is decided by totalling the financial cost of any accident together with the severity of the injury. The court will come up with a figure which it thinks is appropriate.

    You should make note of any medical attention you received at the scene and also get quotes for any treatments you intend to have in the future. This will allow you to estimate how much it has cost you and is likely to cost you in the future. Legal fees might also potentially be included in this.
