Can you make a claim for your injury?
If you can say yes to the following three questions, then you are certainly entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim.
- Were you injured in the accident?
- Did the accident happen within the 3-year time limit?
- Was someone else responsible?
Establishing negligence was the cause of the accident
Negligence simply means someone else’s actions played a prominent role in causing your injury. All businesses, local authorities, schools, councils and public authorities have a responsibility to ensure that their property is safe for people to visit. If the council, for example, do not repair a damaged pavement or display warning signs, then they have failed to ensure your safety. Their conduct may be considered as negligent. In such cases, you are fully entitled to make an injury compensation claim in Sandiway.
What kind of evidence is required?
The necessary evidence is an essential part of your claim. Without it, your claim is likely to be unsuccessful.
Some examples of the evidence your solicitor may need are:
- Medical records detailing the extent of injury, treatment, and outcome.
- Proof of financial losses including payslips, bank statements, receipts, invoices.
- Witnesses names and addresses.
- Written reports such as an accident at work report or police report.
- Photographic evidence of the accident scene or defect that caused your injury. It may also help to take photographs of your injuries or scars.
