Claiming injury compensation in Llandudno can be stressful mainly because you don’t know what’s coming next. The majority of us will not have been involved in many personal injury claims during our time which means that you’re likely to be walking into the unknown. To help you out, here’s a little guide as to what you can expect.
When you can and can’t claim
The first thing to do is to make it clear when you can make a personal injury claim. In short claims will be assessed on the following basis.
- Blame: It can’t have been your fault which means by extension it must be someone else’s fault.
- Injury: The injuries you’ve sustained will need to be bad enough to warrant medical attention. Otherwise the chances are we will not be able to help you out.
- Timing: One thing people often forget about is timing. There is a three year time limit on personal injury claims. If you wait longer than that then the chances are you will not be able to make a claim no matter how good your case might be.
Going to court
Here you’ll be in the position of the claimant which means you’ll have to prove that the defendant was responsible for the accident, not the other way around. This means you’ll have to convince the court of your version of events – your word against theirs will sadly not do the trick.
But don’t worry because the chances are you won’t have to go to court. Most claims are over and done with in a few months and the other side may well come back with a compensation settlement. This is something you can decide whether to accept or not.
