Road traffic accidents in and around Kilwinning
If you have been hurt in a road traffic accident in Kilwinning (or elsewhere and you live in the town), it is possible that you could claim compensation for your pain, distress and suffering, as well as any expenses you had specifically because of your injuries. Of course there are a few points you have to be able to prove if you are to claim compensation.
First of all you must establish that you were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured. You also have to prove that the accident was the result of another person’s negligence or reckless behaviour, as there must be a person to file a claim against. If your accident was caused by a wild animal, then you would not be able to make a claim for personal injury compensation. Animals have no insurance cover,m and it is usually insurance companies that pay compensation to accident victims.
You also have to prove that you had medical treatment for your injuries as soon as you could have done after your accident. You can do this with a copy of your medical records and the doctor’s report.
If the police were at the scene of the accident and investigated its causes, their accident report should help you prove that you were a victim of the accident.
