Given the sheer number of cars on the roads at the moment it’s small wonder that from time to time some of them collide. When that happens the chances are it was someone’s fault. Often it’s simply a case of establishing whose fault it was so that the damage can be corrected by their insurance policy.
However, when injuries are involved that’s when it can get interesting. This blog will show you how to fight a claim for a traffic accident and why it’s so important to find the right injury solicitors for the situation.
In any road traffic accident the question of blame is always of paramount importance. By law all drivers are required to carry third party car insurance. Any compensation will be paid out of that insurance policy.
When determining that compensation the court will look at the severity of the injury and also make an evaluation based on how much – in basic financial terms – the accident has cost.
You should tell them about any medical attention you received and if you plan to pay for more treatment, get a couple of quotes to show how much this could cost.
However in order to get that far we still have to establish whose fault it was in the first place and this is where things can be difficult. We don’t like to admit fault and there’s every chance that the other driver may be making similar claims about you. When that happens the outcome of the case will hinge on whose story the court finds easier to believe – and that will depend on who has the best evidence supporting their case.
It is a good idea to start talking to people at the scene, getting hold of their contact numbers. You won’t need to speak to them directly, but just pass their details on to your lawyer who will speak to them for you. If you’re confident of your case you will naturally want to have as much independent evidence as possible.
