If you have had an accident which was no fault of yours within the last three years, then you could be thinking of claiming compensation for it. Whatever the accident, wherever it happened you could have a good case for claiming compensation for a personal injury.
You might, before you found this article, have been looking through your local Southampton telephone directory, trying to find a solicitor for an injury claim in Highfield, or you might have been online, looking for a solicitor for your accident injury claim in Highfield on your laptop or PC. You may have found several solicitors in the Southampton area but not one who specialises in personal injury compensation claims.
Accidents can occur anywhere and often it seems that no one is at fault, but usually there is someone to blame. For example if you were hit by a hit-and-run driver and were hospitalised, you might think that you have no chance of getting compensation for your injury. However you would be wrong.
It is possible that the police manage to trace the driver of the vehicle and he or she might be in possession of a valid insurance policy, in which case you have a straightforward claim for a personal injury. However, if the car was stolen, or the owner of the vehicle does not have insurance, then your injury claim Highfield lawyer, or any other accident solicitor can make a claim on your behalf to the Motor Insurers Bureau (MIB).
Get Witness Details
The police should be informed of any hit-and-run accident, and they should be called along with an ambulance if you suffer such an accident. There are usually witnesses to these incidents and you or the police should take their names and addresses so that they can make statements which will help you when you claim compensation. Of course, it helps if you have the registration number of the vehicle that hit you and its make and model. You could take photos of the scene with your mobile phone, if, of course, it has not been damaged in the accident.
When you are involved in an accident which was not your fault, you can claim not only for personal injury, but also loss and damage to your property, broken mobile, torn clothing and so on.
