If you have started the process of looking for a personal injury solicitor in Cheshire East by calling Accident Advice Helpline then you may be thinking about using their unique 30 second test. The test checks that your accident happened in the last three years and that you received medical attention for your injuries.
These two questions are fairly straightforward and most people can manage them without assistance. If you are struggling then the friendly Accident Advice Helpline advisers will be there to help you before you speak to an injury solicitor in Cheshire East.
Then you will reach the question which asks you if you were at fault for the accident yourself. This is the question that some people find a bit tricky. It is not always clear who was to blame for an accident and sometimes the issue of blame is in dispute.
Making a claim for compensation
Your personal injury solicitor in Cheshire East will work hard to clarify this because you can only make a claim for compensation for accidents that were not your own fault. Accident Advice Helpline operate a hotline so that you can call up and discuss the subject of blame for your accident whenever you want to.
The Accident Advice Helpline advisers have been handling cases like yours for the last thirteen years and will be able to give you some excellent advice. Then, when your personal injury solicitor in Cheshire East takes over your case they will set out your claim which will try to prove that another person was at fault for the car accident.
This is the person that will pay the compensation. Once blame has been sorted out (this is called establishing liability) your lawyer will negotiate a sum of money on your behalf. The money is for paid firstly for the injury itself and then for money that you have lost because you are injured – the so called ‘ out of pocket expenses’.
So how can they do this? They will use a combination of witness accounts and photographs if they are available. The most common person at fault for a road traffic accident is another motorist. They are usually driving a motor vehicle of some kind.
