If you’ve been involved in an accident the biggest decision you’ll face is whether or not you should make a claim for personal injury compensation. This guide will let you know what you should look at and how you should find an injury solicitor Rickmansworth.
What you can claim for?
You can claim for many types of different injury including an accident at work, on the road, criminal injury, an accident in the street or in a public place. You might also suffer an illness as a result of medical malpractice while in hospital.
In other words, the nature of the accident doesn’t matter – what does is whether it was your fault and how big an effect it has had on your life.
Before you go looking for an injury solicitor Rickmansworth ask yourself these three very basic questions.
- When did it happen? This is a simple question but incredibly important. Under UK law you can only claim for accidents that happened within the last three years. Any longer than that and regardless of how strong your case is you will not get anywhere.
- Who was at fault? If the accident was not your fault, but was down to someone else’s mistake then it stands to reason that you should be owed compensation. However, knowing this will be one thing proving it will be quite another.
- How bad was the injury? Compensation is calculated on the basis of a payment for the injury and recompense for any expenses incurred as a result. In general terms this will include things such as loss of earnings through being unable to work and ongoing medical treatment.
It’s one thing to convince yourself of the answers to all these questions, but where the challenge really comes in is in convincing a court of law. You can start, though, by running your situation past one of our experts.
