If you’ve been injured in the past three years in or around Forest and it wasn’t your fault you may be entitled to compensation. The problem is, you may not know it. This little blog is intended to show you what your rights are and how you can find an injury lawyer in Forest.
What are your rights?
Every year thousands of people have an accident which wasn’t their fault. However, they often don’t manage to make a claim simply because they aren’t aware that the option is even open to them.
So, first things first….
In order to make a claim your accident must happened in the last three years – that’s the time limit imposed on making a claim and rightly or wrongly nothing that took place longer ago can count.
Naturally, there must be blame apportioned. If the accident wasn’t your fault and a third party was to blame then you should be entitled to compensation for the injuries caused.
Proving this blame is not always straightforward and the other side may well vigorously contest the case, but not to worry, that is entirely their right and they’re bound to give it a go.
The important thing is to have all the key information about your case clearly at hand. For example, if you have witnesses to the incident it is a good idea to have them on hand as their statements could prove decisive when the case goes to court.
Finally, the question of injury. In most cases we will not be able to help you unless there is clear evidence of a lasting injury. This will determine how much compensation you’re entitled to.
In order to find out whether your case fits the bill it is a good idea to get advice from a trained and qualified professional. They will be able to tell you whether it’s a good idea to proceed.
Here again we can help you at Accident Advice Helpline. We have an expert team of professionals on hand ready to help with anything you need. We’ll give an honest opinion about the merits of the case and, assuming we recommend you move forward with it, can outline how much compensation you might expect to receive.
Don’t get too excited just yet – this is only our estimate or best guess. You can never be certain of what will happen in reality.
