Being involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, and which results in an injury, can put you in a terrible position. Not only are you in a lot of pain, but you may also be traumatised from the event and your injuries may result in a loss of earnings. That is why Accident Advice helpline’s team of personal injury solicitors in Pollok are always here to help you.
If you have been involved in an accident and you are considering making a claim for personal injury compensation, you should know the following:
Your injury must have an external cause
If you want us to help you make a claim for compensation, you must be certain that someone else, whether that be another person, organisation or workplace, is responsible for your accident. This could be through negligence, health and safety violations or a simple accident involving another party, who was the cause of the incident.
You must have been injured in the past 3 years
Due to legal restrictions, it is only possible for our personal injury lawyers to help you file a claim if your accident happened in the last 3 years. Although your case can go on beyond that point, the claim must have been filed within 3 years if it is to be considered.
You must be able to prove your case
It probably goes without saying, but you do not stand much of a chance of being awarded compensation if you do not have any proof that you were injured. This is why you should report your accident and have your injuries checked over by a medical professional as soon as possible after the incident.
You should also take down the contact details of any witnesses and take photographs of the scene if it is in any way possible for you to do so.
