The UK has some of the most busy roads in Europe, so it’s no surprise that accidents happen from time to time. Often there’s no helping what happens, but if you’ve been hurt as a result of someone’s careless driving then it’s only fair that you should be entitled to compensation. But how do you go about it? This blog has the answer and will help you find an injury solicitor in Sutton St James for your personal injury compensation claim.
A hypothetical situation
The biggest obstacle many people face when looking at road accidents is establishing where the blame lies. There are often several versions of events flying around, and it will not always be straightforward deciding what really happened.
So, what should you do?
The first thing to do is to find advice. Because of the uncertainties involved, you will be naturally wary of speaking to anyone who charges for a consultation, which might narrow your options down a bit.
At Accident Advice Helpline, though, we make a point of ensuring our expertise is accessible, free of charge and without obligation. All you need to do is give us a call and speak to one of our representatives. They can spend time looking into the details of the accident and giving you advice on your prospects of success.
Key to this will be any independent evidence you can supply to back up your case. Witness statements will be key in deciding whose version of events the court finds most compelling. As long as you’re confident of your case, you’ll be eager to encourage as many of these as possible as it will help bring the true events to light.
In addition, it may be worth scheduling a medical assessment. This allows us to evaluate the extent of the injuries you suffer, which can be useful in determining how much compensation we think you should aim for.
Once that’s done, several things might happen. We may tell you that we don’t think you have a realistic chance of winning, in which case we’ll suggest you move on, or we can decide you have a good chance, in which case you have the option of finding an injury solicitor in Sutton St James.
