If you live in Farleigh and have suffered an injury while at work, it is entirely possible that you may be eligible for compensation. The question of whether or not you will be able to make a claim depends on many different factors.
In this guide, we’re going to look at what determines a claim and how you can go about finding the best possible injury lawyer in Farleigh possible.
An accident at work
The first thing to remember before you go looking for an injury lawyer in Farleigh is that no two injury claims are identical. They all have their specific nuances, starting with the type of injury suffered. All, though, have similar features:
- The accident must have happened within the last three years;
- It must have not been your fault; and
- The injuries you sustained must have needed medical attention
For an accident on the road, there can be complexities in the case which will mean it can be challenging to make a claim. First of all, it is unlikely that we can help you unless you’ve been injured in the accident. Secondly, the question of apportioning blame can become something of a minefield. All accidents can happen quickly and there is every chance that each party involved will have their own version of whose fault it was.
If you’re in an accident, it’s a good idea to get the contact details of the other party as well as any witnesses at the scene. Their statements could prove crucial as being the only independent version of what happened.
If you have an injury, you may need to have a medical assessment to show the severity of the injury and how long you think it’ll last. You should also keep track of your expenses incurred as a result, for example if you’re spending a lot of time in treatment because of the accident make, so that you can illustrate how much this costs you. Any expenses will be included within your claim.
