Yattendon is a village and civil parish 7 miles north-east of Newbury, Berkshire. The M4 motorway passes about 0.5 miles south of the village, which is extremely useful for people who commute regularly.
Unfortunately, however, accidents can sometimes occur and people can be hurt as a result. Although accidents can occur on any type of road, when collisions occur on a motorway, they can be particularly serious due to the relatively high speed limit.
If you’ve been hurt whilst driving or travelling, you may be able to make a claim for compensation. However, you’ll need to ensure that you meet the relevant criteria before you begin taking legal action.
Could you make a claim with injury lawyers in Yattendon?
If you want to make a claim and obtain compensation with help from injury lawyers in Yattendon, you’ll need to be able to show that you didn’t cause the incident. Proving that another road user or driver was responsible for the accident doesn’t have to be difficult.
Often, road traffic accident reports, witness staements and CCTV footage are used to prove who was at fault.
In addition to this, you’ll need to have received medical treatment for your injuries and most claimants will also need to take action within 3 years’ of the accident happening.
Have you suffered psychological injuries?
When people think of making a personal injury compensation claim, they generally assume that they’ll be claiming for the physical injuries they’ve sustained. Although this is true, it is also possible to claim for any psychological injuries you’ve sustained as well.
As these types of accidents can be extremely traumatic, it’s not uncommon for people to suffer emotional harm, as well as physical injuries, so it’s important to ensure this is included in your claim.
