Am I entitled to a claim?
Not everyone who has had an accident will be entitled to make a compensation claim. You will need to prove that someone else was at fault for your accident and that you yourself did not contribute to it.
You will also need a fair amount of proof so that your lawyer has something to make your claim with.
What does the claims process involve?
You need to find an injury lawyer and provide them with as much information about your accident as possible, as well as evidence which they can use. They will then contact the other person and let them know what you want by way of compensation, what case you have against them and so on.
The other person can reply in agreement and offer you a settlement, or your lawyer may have to negotiate with them. There is also a chance that the case may have to go to court.
What happens if my claim is unsuccessful?
You should speak with your injury lawyer about this, as you may have to pay them a fee anyway, or you may not have to if your injury lawyer is no-win, no-fee.
There may also be a chance that you can appeal the decision and try again, and your lawyer should be able to decide this for you.
