Want to make a car accident compensation claim?
You might live in Castle Carey, Wincanton or somewhere else in South Somerset, and you might be contemplating making a personal injury compensation claim after being injured in a car crash in South Somerset. You may be eligible to make a car accident compensation claim in South Somerset if you can prove that you were not responsible for the accident. You should also be able to prove that someone else was to blame for it.
Find out if you have a valid claim to make
If you contact us at Accident Advice Helpline and tell us about your accident and injuries, we will be able to tell you if you actually have a valid compensation claim to make. Contact us as soon as you can, as although you have three years to make a claim for injuries arising from most accidents in the UK, this isn’t always the case. You may have to file your particular claim in months, and if you have been delaying making it, you may only have weeks left before the limitation period is up.
If the limitation period has passed for you to file your claim, you could only file it if you can prove that there were exceptional circumstances preventing you from doing so within the limitation period.
What criteria are there for making a claim?
Not only do you have to be able to prove that your accident was the fault of another person, but you also have to prove that you sought and received medical treatment as soon as was possible after your accident. This can be proven when you produce your medical records. They will show the time and date you received treatment. They will also describe your injuries. These documents will be needed so that the amount of compensation you can be awarded for your pain, distress and suffering can be worked out. They will also indicate if you suffered loss of amenity and can no longer do something (a hobby or sport for example), which you used to enjoy doing before your accident.
You will also need a copy of the police accident report. When a person is injured in a car crash in South Somerset, the police and an ambulance should be called to the scene. The police need to discover the causes of such accidents.
