Personal injury law is one of the more complex areas of the legal system, so it is only natural to feel uncertain if you find yourself cast adrift in this strange area. However, with a little help and support it will be easier to find an injury solicitor Mortlake than you might imagine. Here’s what you should be looking for.
Understanding the basics
Timing is all important. Under regulations you can only claim for an injury within the past three years.
The question of blame will also decide the matter. If the accident was not your fault but was down to someone else the chances are you will have a very good case. However this will seldom be a cut and dried issue so you’ll have to fight your corner.
The injury will be important as this will decide the level of compensation, if any, the court awards. Compensation is awarded on the basis of a single amount for the injury itself plus any expenses incurred. These could be anything from loss of earnings to travel, legal or medical costs.
The type of injury
People often get flummoxed by the nature of the injury that they have. This is quite understandable, but needn’t be the case.
Personal injury law can cover almost any kind of injury from a slip in the street, to an illness contracted in the hospital. In all these cases it’s a simple case of establishing who was at fault.
However, the system does have different nuances when it comes to different areas of the personal injury legal system. For example, if you’ve been hurt in a car accident you’ll probably need witnesses from the scene to provide evidence backing your assertion that the accident was not your fault.
Nobody should do anything without getting advice from an expert and personal injury claims are no different. Speak to an expert and find out more about the process.
