If you’re looking for help with a road traffic accident in Wychavon, and want to be successful then you need to ensure that you have a legal claim for compensation. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we are only able to deal with the strongest of claims. On this page, we will discuss, in depth, the elements that need to be in place if you wish to claim compensation through us.
Limitations of time
We are only able to help with a road traffic accident in Wychavon if the incident occurred within the last three years. However, it is important to note that you should start the compensation claim process as soon as possible. Even if your case falls within the three-year time limit, you will greatly weaken your chance of success if you leave making that claim too late.
You need to have suffered an injury
Accident Advice Helpline is a personal injury law firm. This means that we will only be able to help out in cases where an injury has occurred. We are able to help with all types of injury. This includes both physical and psychological injuries. It must, however, be proven that the injury led to a financial loss. This could be something as simple as time off work or something bigger such as medical expenses over a long period of time.
It is important that you obtain a medical report before you get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline. We will need access to this medical report in order to establish the extent of your injuries and to analyse the impact that they will have on your day to day life.
The accident must have been the fault of another person
You will only be able to claim compensation if the car accident was the result of the negligence of another person. This means that a person must have acted in a way which breached their duty of care towards other users of the road. It does not necessarily mean that they acted in a deliberate manner. Most accidents are just accidents. All that matters is that the manner in which they acted was inherently careless and that is what led to the accident occurring.
In most cases, you will be making a claim against other drivers on the road. However, you may also be able to make a claim for compensation if you are a pedestrian or even the passenger of a vehicle where the driver acted in a negligent manner. You will be claiming compensation from the insurance company of the negligent party.
