After a serious accident in which you have been badly injured, you may want to make an accident injury claim in Pendle against the person who you perceive to be at fault for what happened.
However, making a compensation claim can take time and you don’t want to go ahead with a claim if you actually have no chance of winning, so you should try to work out before you make a start on your claim if you have a good enough case to move forward and whether you could benefit from expert legal advice in Pendle.
Was the accident someone else’s fault?
You can’t make a compensation claim for an accident which was caused by you, or for which there is no one to blame. You need to have someone be at fault in order to make a claim, or there is no one to claim from.
A driver who is not paying attention and hits your car, or a store which has uneven flooring that you trip and injure yourself on are both at fault and can be claimed against, for example.
Is there evidence to prove your claim?
If there is literally just your word against the other person’s then it is unlikely that you will make a successful compensation claim against them. As with any legal case, evidence is what proves fault, and if it cannot be proved then the case will be thrown out. You can use lots of things for evidence, such as police reports, doctors reports and witness statements.
