If you’ve been knocked down by a car, the effects can have a serious influence on your life. If you’ve been injured then it could affect your lifestyle and reduce your ability to work. Therefore, it stands to reason that the person who hit you with the car should play a role in helping you out. You may need the help of an injury solicitor in Rowen.
Can you claim?
Several factors will determine whether or not you can make a claim. The first will be the extent of the injury itself. Compensation will be determined firstly by the injury itself and secondly by any expenses you have incurred.
This could be something relatively simple such as loss of earnings, to something a little more complex such as treatment that you could have if you had the money.
Timing is also an issue. If you’ve waited longer than three years before making a claim then, regardless of how valid your claim, you will not be entitled to anything.
Who’s fault is it anyway?
When it comes to road accidents the argument over who is at fault is often quite heated. Any accident is generally over in a few seconds so it can be difficult to know where blame should really lie.
Key to deciding where the blame really lies will be witness statements from people who were actually present at the scene. This will be crucial to determining blame one way or another.
If you’re confident of your case, then you naturally want as much independent evidence as possible in the mix – whether this comes in the form of independent statements or close circuit television.
In a situation such as this where the outcome might be far from certain, you will want all the help you can lay your hands on. This is where our team really comes into its own.
