In order for an injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island to make a claim for personal injury on your behalf it is vital that it can be proved that you have indeed been injured in the accident in question.
The injury does not have to be “serious”, you do not have to have broken a bone or lost a limb in order to make a claim for compensation, but the injury you have suffered does need to have had some form of impact on your day to day life.
For example, an injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island would not be able to make a claim for financial compensation if you have received a paper cut (although, we do appreciate that these can be quite painful at times).
An injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island would be able to make a claim for a sprained ankle, a dislocated shoulder, whiplash, broken bones, lacerations (which usually require stitches), burns and scalds etc.
If you have been involved in any form of accident it is important that you receive medical attention to ensure that you are given the best possible advice and treatment to aid your recovery. It is also important that you are given a full and proper assessment, and that you are accurately diagnosed.
For example, following a car accident you might think that the bump to the head you have received is nothing more than that; however, an injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island will know that there is a good chance that not only will you have received whiplash (especially if you have suffered a rear impact collision which caused your head and neck to jolt forward) but you might also be suffering from concussion, which could have future implications and cause complications in terms of recovery.
Not your fault
It is helpful for your injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island to know that the accident you were involved in was not your fault (or that you were no more than simply partly to blame). This is because in order for your injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island to make a personal injury claim on your behalf the claim needs to be made against someone else. This other person will be the person who is regarded as being responsible (or liable) for the accident.
The Last Three years
The injury lawyer in Gt Cumbrae Island will ask when the accident occurred as there are strict time limits in place on how long you can make a claim following an accident. Generally speaking this is three years.
