Before you start looking for an injury lawyer in Didsbury who can handle your claim, make sure that you are aware of what is required from you the claimant.
- Your accident must have occurred within three years of the start of the claim.
- Your accident must have been someone else’s fault. This does not have to be an individual, it can be a company or individual but it must have been their negligence that caused the incident.
- You must have suffered a personal injury as a result. This injury must have received medical attention and you must be able to prove that you sought medical help.
- You must have details of the accident, including any witness contact details, details of medical appointments and also photographs if possible. The more detail you can give your nominated representative, the better your chances. If it was an accident to which the police were called, you will need the incident report number.
