    Injury claim in Hunstanton

    If you are thinking of pursuing an injury claim Hunstanton, or one based anywhere else in the UK, there are several things to take into consideration.

    1 Firstly you need to be able to prove that another person was responsible for your accident or illness.

    2 You need to file a claim for most accidents and illnesses within three years. In some cases you only have two years in which to file a claim, so you should check with an accident solicitor to find out in which category your accident falls.

    3 It is necessary for you to find an accident or personal injury solicitor who has the experience and expertise in winning compensation for clients who had the same type of accident as you.

    4 Because there is no longer legal aid for personal injury compensation claims, you will need to make an injury claim in Hunstanton, for example, through a solicitor who works on a no-win, no-fee basis.

    Do you need to make an injury claim in Hunstanton?

    You will probably be able to find an accident or personal injury solicitor who will give you a first appointment free of charge. Solicitors usually give their potential clients a forty-five minute appointment so that they can discuss the potential claim. At the end of the allotted time, the solicitor will probably be able to tell you if you have grounds on which to make an injury claim in Hunstanton, or one based in any other location within the UK. Or you can call us now for free, no-obligation advice.

    Procedure for filing a claim

    Your solicitor will ask you to provide certain documentation in order for him or her to make a case. You will need to produce your medical report and you could be asked to see another doctor for a second opinion about your injury or illness, and so that both doctors agree on the prognosis. You may be advised to wait to make your claim if you are expected to fully recover in a few months or a year.

    If the police were present at the accident scene, then you will have to produce a police report, along with pay slips if you want to claim for loss of earnings due to your injury or illness.

    Your solicitor will then write a letter to the person you think is responsible for your injuries or illness and you may be able to settle out of court. However if they deny responsibility or any offer of compensation is too low for you to accept, you may have to take your injury claim in Hunstanton to court.
