    Hastings Road Traffic Accident Claim


    It wasn’t only poor King Harold who had an accident in Hastings (or perhaps in Battle); he was, of course, defeated by the armies of William the Conqueror in 1066. It may have been an accident, but when fighting a war, one can expect to be injured. These days, road traffic accidents are more common than being hit by a flying arrow in Hastings. In the lead-up to Christmas and the festive season Sussex police are cracking down on drivers who are over the legal alcohol limit and those who have been taking drugs. They are also finding people who are driving without a licence or without insurance – both of which are illegal.

    Hastings road traffic accident claim

    You may live in Hastings and have been involved in an accident on the roads, and if you were injured, you could be wondering if you could make a Hastings road traffic accident claim. You may be able to if you can prove that you were not to blame for the accident and also that another person was responsible for it.

    To make a claim you need to have received medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you practically could after the accident. Your medical report will be needed to assess part of the amount of compensation awarded if your Hastings road traffic accident claim is successful.

    If your accident involved motorised vehicles (rather than bicycles for example) and someone was injured, you should have called the police. It is their duty to investigate the causes of such accidents when someone is injured. You will need their accident report if you are to make a Hastings road traffic accident claim.

    How long to make a claim?

    Although you usually have three years after the date of an accident that occurred within the British Isles to make your personal injury compensation claim, there are many exceptions to this rule.  It is important that you find out precisely how long you have left to file your potential claim, as it would not be a good idea to delay filing a claim and losing out on the chance to claim compensation. To find out how long it is before the deadline for filing your particular claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
