Car accidents are extremely common on our roads, and the effects can last the rest of your life. If you’ve been hurt in an accident within the last three years and think you might be entitled to make a claim, then the big question is: how do you know if you stand a good chance of winning, and how can you find an injury solicitor in Stuston?
This blog will show you how.
When you can make a claim
Making a personal injury claim can seem like a complicated business, but at its heart everything is pretty simple. In short, it all boils down to three important issues:
- The injury itself: The courts are there to help you win compensation for severe injuries which have had a substantial impact on your quality of life. In other words, if you’ve only been hurt slightly then we may not be able to help you out.
- Whose fault it was: Blame is important. You can’t claim if you were at fault, so you’ll have to be reasonably confident that you can illustrate to a court that your version of events is accurate.
- The three-year rule: You may have read about accidents happening within three years. That’s the limit on when you can make a claim. If you wait longer before you start proceedings, then you may not be entitled to make a claim regardless of how good your case is.
What about car accidents?
Making a claim for a road injury can sometimes be more complicated, simply because of the speed at which events occur. Accidents can be over in seconds, and it’s not always possible to be certain whose fault it was.
You may have your opinions, while the other side may be equally confident of their case. Indeed, it’s not unheard of for both sides to believe the other is at fault and to be making claims against one another. In such cases, the courts will have to decide who they believe.Open Claim Calculator
To do this they will rely on independent evidence, so if you’re confident of your case then you should encourage as much of this as possible. For example, anything such as witness statements from people who were at the scene could tip the balance in your direction.
