If you live in Frizington and have been hurt in a car accident in the last 3 years’ it is possible that you may be owed compensation. However, the process of claiming can be complicated and it can become even more difficult if the other side decides to contest the case. So, how should you go about finding help with an injury claim in Frizington?
Know the landscape
The first thing to remember is to know the landscape. There are specific rules regarding how road traffic accidents are assessed.
First, as with any type of personal injury you can only make a claim if it happened some time within the last 3 years. Anything longer than that and it could be automatically disqualified regardless of the merits of the case, so it pays to take action sooner rather than later.
In general we will not be able to help you unless the accident has resulted in an injury. By law any driver has to carry third party driving insurance, so if there has been damage to property or another car this should be covered under the terms of that policy.
The area where there may be the most contest is in the issue of blame. Each accident happens in a flash and both parties may have strong opinions as to who was to blame. If you’re going to win your case you need to establish that the accident was not your fault.
The question of blame
Blame will be established if you can show that the other party drove in a way which caused the accident as a result.
To help your case you should present all the information you can. If possible, get the contact details of witnesses as their statements could prove vital in proving who was at fault.
