If you’ve been hurt in an accident in or around Moffat you could use an injury solicitor in Moffat to help you get compensation. The problem is that of the thousands of people injured in and around the area only a proportion ever claim the support to which they’re entitled.
One of the reasons for this is a lack of information. This is a strange area for most of us and it’s unlikely we’re going to have the experience necessary to proceed entirely on our own.
This lack of information is linked to another factor: fear. In an area in which we know little it is easy to be worried that we’ll end up being exploited by some unscrupulous individuals.
So, this guide will offer you all you need to know about personal injury law and how to find an injury solicitor in Moffat.
Making a claim with Accident Advice Helpline
Every case is different and with the issue of blame always likely to be keenly debated it is never easy to be certain about the outcome of a case. However, before you start ask yourself these three simple questions.
- Was it someone else’s fault?
- When did it happen?
- Did the injury receive medical attention?
The issue of blame should be self explanatory. It is not possible to claim compensation for any injury in which you were to blame. There may be insurance policies which will provide cover, but this is a separate issue. If someone else was to blame then you may well be able to claim compensation but it will not be easy to present a conclusive case. The other side may probably contest it ferociously.
The timing of the accident is also important. It should have taken place no more than 3 years previously. Otherwise you will not be able to claim any compensation regardless of the merits of your case.
The severity of the injury will also be important. Any compensation amount will be calculated on a payment for the injury itself as well as any expenses incurred.
