Surveys show that the major cause of Hackney personal injury claims is accidents which happen while people are out on the roads. Therefore, this article will look at some of the things you should be considering when you’re involved in a road accident.
Hackney personal injury claims
The first thing to do is to look into your rights. Surprisingly this is not something everyone does automatically and it’s one reason why the vast majority of people who could potentially make a personal injury claim never get around to doing so. They simply never think that their injury entitles them to make a claim. However, if you look into your rights, you might be surprised at what you’re entitled to.
After a road traffic accident
Assessing the damages and injuries caused after a road traffic accident can be made more difficult thanks to the challenge of assessing precisely who was at fault for the accident. For example, if you have a vehicle collision both drivers naturally assume the other is at fault. Even so, insurance companies tend to advise their clients to never admit responsibility at the scene of an accident which, considering the natural inclination of British people to apologise for almost anything, is more of a challenge than you might think.
Deciding what happened in the accident is not always straightforward. These incidents can be over in seconds and a lot depends on what witnesses at the scene will have seen. It can help you a great deal if you’re able to provide your lawyers with the contact details of people who were at the scene of the accident. There will be no real need to contact them yourself – your lawyer will do this.
When choosing a lawyer for a road traffic accident it’s important that you find someone who has the right area of expertise. So, for example, if you’ve been injured in a car crash you want someone who has a good track record in this type of personal injury claim. This will increase your chances of a successful outcome.
