Are you looking for injury solicitors in Tattenhall? Well, before you get too excited you should take time to determine whether or not you have a good case. Here are some of the questions you really should be asking yourself.
1. When did the accident happen
There are many factors that could decide whether or not you are eligible for a claim, but before you even go looking for that, you should take time out to ask when the injury occurred. Under UK law you must make a claim for an accident within three years.
Otherwise you’ll be disqualified no matter how good your case. So the lesson there is, get to work sooner rather than later.
2. Was it your fault?
We instinctively tend to believe that all accidents are not our fault, but you should still take time to step back and try to look at the incident as dispassionately as you can. Think about what happened and whether or not someone else really was at fault. Try to think about it in legal terms. What were the responsibilities of the people you’re claiming against and how did they fall down on them?
When you’re in a car accident it might be fairly obvious if you think the other driver caused the accident, but if you’ve been hurt at work it might not always be clear if the employer has failed to deliver on their obligations.
3. Did you receive medical treatment
If you did not require medical treatment for your injury then it is unlikely that we can help you out. Compensation is there to help people who have received an injury which is having a significant impact on their life. It is not there to help people who have suffered minor or short lived injuries.
4. Can you prove this?
Evidence is crucial when you make personal injury claims. It is one thing to know you’re in the right, quite another to have the evidence at hand. Witness statements and photographic evidence are just two of the things that will make the court really sit up and pay attention.
