Have you been hurt in or around Tamworth in an accident that was not your fault? If so, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. This quick checklist will help you find out whether or not you can make a claim and what you can do to find an injury solicitor who will take your claim forward.
When can you claim?
There are many different types of injuries that you can claim for, but some of the most common tend to be in workplaces, public places or because of traffic accidents. Each of these areas has different issues which will affect how you make a claim and we’ve detailed these in our website, but the one thing they have in common is the notion that underpinning everything is the idea of blame and appropriate compensation for the injury.
Naturally, you should be able to demonstrate that the accident was not your fault. If you can do this then there may be a case for compensation. This will be judged against any injury you’ve sustained and damage to property.
The three year rule
There is one exception which could rule out some claims before they have even got started. Under government guidelines you can only claim for an accident that happened within the last three years. This means however good your case is, then if it occurred longer than three years ago you will not be able to claim.
Fighting your case
Naturally, there is often some disagreement about the precise nature of the case so it pays to be able to stand your ground and fight your case.
Many claims are keenly contested by the other side and the case could eventually boil down to whose story the courts find more compelling. This, in turn, will boil down to how much evidence you can present in support of your case.
