If you’ve been hurt in an accident and are looking for an injury solicitor in Rowington then you should treat the entire process much like a battle plan. Here’s what you should do.
1. Look at the facts
We’re often guilty of believing what we want to believe and this is not always borne out by the facts on the ground. Therefore, before you even go looking for an injury solicitor in Rowington you should take a look at whether you should claim.
In short most claims are decided on three aspects: injury, timing and blame.
Let’s take timing first as it is by far the easiest to sort out. Under UK law you can only claim for an injury that has happened within the last three years. Anything longer than that and, regardless of how good your claim you won’t be entitled to any compensation.
The injury itself will determine how much you should be entitled to. Assuming the court finds in your favour, the compensation sum will be decided on the basis of a single figure for the injury itself and further figures which are based on any expenses you may have suffered as a result.
Finally the issue of blame. It is one thing to feel that you are not at fault, but quite another to be able to convince the court of this fact. This is made all the more challenging if the other side decides to contest the case.
In an example of a road accident, the driver of the other car may believe the accident was your fault, in which case they may be making a counter claim against you.
2. Getting information
In such a situation the winner will be the person who marshals the information more effectively. The more independent verification the court can see the more confident they will feel about making a determination. So, reaching back to our road accident example, the court will probably look at all the independent witness statements before deciding whose version of events they believe.
3. Getting advice
Once you have this information in hand you should seek out advice from a qualified expert. We have plenty of these available at Accident Advice Helpline. All you need to do is give them a call and they will answer any questions you might have.
