If you’ve been injured in a car accident and it wasn’t your fault, you may want to make a claim for compensation. But it’s not just drivers who are eligible for a payout; injured passengers can claim too. Get Accident Advice Helpline involved and we’ll do our best to see that you get the compensation you deserve.
The most important criteria you must meet before making a claim is that the accident must have occurred in the last three years, and must have been someone else’s fault. This is often the case with this type of claim, as passengers generally have little or no impact on the reasons why a crash occurs. It doesn’t have to be a car accident – planes, boats, buses and other vehicles all count. Whatever the accident, an injury compensation solicitor in Ashton-under-Lyne from Accident Advice Helpline can help.
Getting help from an injury compensation solicitor in Ashton-under-Lyne
If you’re involved in an accident and intend to make a claim for compensation, there are steps you can take to make winning a little more likely. You should get the name, contact details, insurance details and vehicle registration number of the responsible party, as well as the details of any witnesses who may be able to provide evidence that the accident was not your fault.
It’s also a good idea to take photographs where possible, both of the damage to your car and the surrounding area – skid marks on the road and so forth. It really is a good idea to get as much information as possible to support your case.
You should also seek medical attention as soon as possible. After an accident of this nature, especially If you’ve suffered a blow to the head, it’s vital to get yourself checked out. You should also make a note of any doctor appointments and medical expenses incurred as they will help support your claim later.
