When people search for injury solicitor in Otterham, it’s normally because they’ve been involved in an accident of some kind. Unfortunately, people aren’t always aware that they could be able to claim compensation and this can mean that they miss out on their chance to take legal action.
However, if you’ve been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault, injury solicitors in Otterham may be able to help you take legal action.
Who caused your injuries?
You’ll need to know who is responsible for your injuries in order to make your claim against them. If a cyclist collides with you whilst you’re on the pavement, for example, it might be quite obvious that they’re responsible.
However, if you’re hurt whilst using public transport, you may be unsure whether you should make a claim against a fellow passenger or the transport company. If you’re unsure who is legally responsible for the accident, injury solicitors in Otterham will be able to assist you.
Once you know who is liable for your injuries, you can begin making your compensation claim.

When making a claim, it’s important to include all the injuries you suffered as a result of the incident. The severity of your injuries, and the impact they’ve had on you, will affect how much compensation you receive so it’s essential that you include everything that’s relevant.
