What do you need to think about prior to claiming for personal injury compensation? You’ll need to find specialist legal representation and think about how you will fund the claim, but the first thing to do is check that you’re eligible. Once this has been done, you can consider how to fund a case with your injury lawyer in Buith Wells.
How to know if you are eligible to claim
Three main conditions need to be met before you are considered eligible to make a claim for personal injury:
- The accident must have taken place within the last three years
- You must not have been to blame for causing your accident
- The injuries sustained need to have been assessed and treated by a medical professional at or around the time of the incident
These requirements sound straightforward, but not all cases are simple. Sometimes it can be difficult to establish blame, or you may be wondering if your injuries were treated soon enough after the accident.
We can help establish whether or not you are eligible to claim if you call the helpline numbers provided below.
