If you are currently suffering such an injury then you should speak to one of the injury solicitors of Sutton Green They will be able to make, on your behalf a claim for personal injury compensation. This is not a way of seeking to make a quick sum of money it is a legal process that is in place to protect not only you but any future accident victims.
What is personal injury compensation?
Personal injury compensation is a payment usually claimed off the other person involved in your accident; or at least off their insurance company. There are other scenarios in which you could still receive a payment and the injury solicitors of Sutton Green will be able to explain these to you in more detail. A compensation payment will reimburse the expenses that have occurred as a result of your accident such as lost wages, child care expenses and medical bills. There will also be an element that compensates you for the actual injury itself. You may be given a guide figure by your injury solicitors in Sutton Green but you should only ever treat this as an estimate and not a guarantee.
Injury solicitors in Sutton Green – What do I have to do?
You will be expected to provide details of your accident and the other parties involved and the medical treatment that you received at the time. You will also be expected to have a further examination to confirm the extent of your injuries. You have to be able to confirm that the accident happened within three years of the start date of the claim and that it was not your fault. There are cases where a “bump for bump” claim can be processed although the payout will be less. But there has to be someone else involved directly or indirectly. You will also need to provide witness details even if this comes in the form of a police report or accident at work form.
