Should you claim after a road traffic accident?
Although most drivers are very careful when on the road, accidents occur on a daily basis. Unfortunately, high volumes of traffic, complex road systems and driver error all account for regular collisions.
Whilst not every road traffic incident is serious, any type of collision can result in people being hurt. If you’ve been injured on the road, it may be possible for you to make an injury claim in Langdale. However, you’ll only be eligible to take legal action if you weren’t responsible for the accident.
If another driver collided with your or if a cyclist wasn’t following the rules of the road and caused an accident to occur, you should be able to take action against them and you may be able to obtain a considerable amount of compensation.
Is making an injury claim in Langdale difficult?
Many people imagine lengthy court cases and adversarial battles when making an injury claim in Langdale but this isn’t the case at all. In fact, making a personal injury claim could be a lot easier than you realise.
In most cases, our claimants aren’t even required to go to court and we can process the vast majority of your claim over the phone. Although you may need to present some evidence to support your injury claim in Langdale, we can help you to determine what is relevant and how to access it.
For example, you may need to request a copy of your medical records so that they can be used as part of your compensation claim. In addition to confirming that you received medical care, your records will highlight exactly what injuries you sustained, how long they will take to heal and any complications which are expected to occur.
These details are vital to making a claim and they could affect how much compensation you’re awarded so it’s important to provide access to your medical records whenever you take legal action after an accident.
