None of us want to have an accident. Unfortunately these are things beyond our control. We can slip on a wet floor, trip over an uneven kerb or find ourselves the victim of someone else’s careless driving. Modern pressures mean that we all live our lives a little too much in the fast lane. Clock watching is often the norm for a working person and pressure can lead to lack of concentration, which increases the risk of accidents.
If you do fall foul of an accident, what can you do if the situation was caused by someone other than yourself? You can of course make a compensation claim through an injury lawyer in Fauldhouse. The area may not be the best to find accident solicitors, but you can always choose to use a national law firm to represent you in your claim.
Making the right choice
Even if you are lucky and have not had an accident, you cannot have failed to notice the increased presence of compensation claim providers. Companies offering help to accident victims can be found on every street corner in every major town. Even accident and emergency rooms are filled with flyers and pamphlets offering advice. But what is the best route you can take if you feel you have suffered unnecessarily and want to discover if you can make a claim for compensation?
Points to remember
You cannot make a claim simply because you have had an accident. There has to be blame attached, which simply means that your misfortune arose as a result of someone else’s negligence. Remember the often used claim motto: “No blame no claim.”
Keep records of any and all medical attention you receive, as this will be needed to process your claim, and the details of anyone who may have witnessed your accident.
The date of the accident is of course vital, as claims can only be made within three years of the date of occurrence (this can be extended with certain specific claims).
