Many people are put off claiming compensation for their injuries because they think it might be too difficult to make a claim. But while this world can be a complicated one, it can be easy to help if you find the right solicitor.
Here’s our basic beginners guide to making a personal injury claim:
Assess your injury
There are plenty of people out there who have been in an accident and are struggling to manage with life afterwards. They often start thinking – maybe I can claim compensation to help me out. But what you really need to do is sit back and look at some of the key questions you’ll have to answer.
1. When did the accident happen? Time can be of the essence when making a personal injury claim. You’ll need to make a claim within three years of the initial claim in order for you to be given the chance to make a claim.
2. Was it your fault? A simple question and one that you need to answer honestly. Nobody likes to admit that they were in the wrong, but if the accident was your fault then you will probably not be able to make a claim.
3. Did you require medical attention? Compensation is there primarily to help people who have suffered an injury which has had a significant impact on their lives. It is not there for minor bumps and scrapes. So, if you didn’t receive medical attention, then it’s unlikely we’ll be able to help you.
