Even though many people are eligible to claim compensation each year, a significant number of people don’t take legal action after an accident. In some cases, they simply don’t realise that they could be eligible to make a claim and, in others, they fear that the process will be too complex or lengthy.
If you’ve been involved in an accident of some kind, it’s important to access legal help or you could miss out on your chance to make an injury claim in Yarm.
When could you make an injury claim in Yarm?
If you’ve been affected by an accident, you’ll need to show that you weren’t at fault in order to be able to obtain compensation. If you’re able to prove that someone or something else caused you to get hurt, they should be held liable for their actions.
Claims can focus on various types of incidents, such as, work-related injuries, injuries caused by faulty products, road traffic accidents and even slips, trips and falls.
If you’ve been involved in a non-fault accident, you’ll also need to show that you received medical help if you want to make a claim and most people will be required to take action within 3 years’ of getting hurt.
