Why Has My Injury Claim in Sourton Cross Been Rejected?
If you have had an accident or sustained an injury which was not your fault, it can be incredibly frustrating to find out that your injury claim in Sourton Cross has been rejected. If you know and have evidence that the accident wasn’t your fault, and feel that you are entitled to compensation, then it can be infuriating when you are told that you cannot claim. Here are some of the reasons that your injury claim in Sourton Cross may be rejected, and what you can do about it.
1. Past Deadline
All compensation claims must be filed within three years of the accident. Most claims companies and solicitors will not even look at a claim that is past the three-year mark, as by this point the evidence and information needed to process the claim is probably not available. Injury claims that are close to the deadline may also be rejected, as lawyers will need to put together the claim within a certain space of time they just do not have.
2. Not a Viable Claim
Some cases may be rejected because the solicitor believes that it will be rejected in court. This can happen for a number of reasons, such as:
- Lack of evidence;
- Unable to trace guilty party;
- Claim not backed up by medical assessment; or
- Not enough information available about the accident.
Before you even start to make a claim, you should make sure that you have all the information your solicitor is likely to need to make a good case for you in court.
3. Unable to Place Fault
If your accident could have been down to you or the other party, and it is not possible to prove which party is to blame one way or another, then you may find that your injury claim in Sourton Cross is rejected. There is no point a solicitor taking on an injury claim in Sourton Cross if they have no way in order to prove in court that you were not to blame for your injuries. Without any proof or evidence, you will not be awarded compensation. If the lines are blurred about whether it was you or the other party at fault for your accident, then you should not try to make a compensation claim.
