FAQs about claiming compensation
If you’ve been hurt in an accident, you may have questions about your rights to compensation, as well as how the process works.
Here, we answer some of the most common questions we are asked about making Havant claims with no legal jargon, making it easy for you to understand your rights to compensation.
Who can make a claim?
The law stipulates that anyone injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence can make a compensation claim. You have up to three years after the accident in which to make a claim, and can do so for injuries sustained in accidents at work, in public places or road traffic accidents. In order to make a successful claim, you should be able to prove that you were in no way at fault for the accident, and that the negligence of another party caused it to occur.
How can you prove you are innocent?
It’s important to report an accident as soon as it happens, whether that’s to an employer or the police. The official accident report will make note of how it occurred, which can prove invaluable when it comes to making a claim. You should also collect as much information as possible from the scene, such as witness names and contact information, images taken with a camera phone and more, and provide all of this to your solicitor to help them build a case.
How much will you receive?
The amount awarded in Havant claims varies from case to case, but it’s easy to see how much you could receive with the help of our thirty-second claims calculator. This tool will provide a rough estimate almost instantly, enabling you to get an idea of how much you could expect to get in a settlement.
